As the wash-and-go skincare routine has become a thing of the past, and the love we show our skin is now a multi-step process, the talk of face masks is an inevitable one. Apart from the day and night moisturizers, essential oils, serums, micellar waters and tonics, masks are also a highly significant step towards achieving that glowing, deeply purified and smooth skin we all long for.
There are different types of masks out there, and we are dedicated to unveiling all their benefits as well as how each type works for different skin conditions and skin types.
Face masks provide your skin with a quick boost, but the key is choosing the right one for you. When dealing with sensitive skin, there are numerous routes you can take. First, there are the highly popular clay masks that have been reigning for quite a long time, and there is a different type of clay for every problem.
If you are dealing with dry skin, the one to look for is the white clay one, also known as Kaolin. Its advantages lie in the fact that it is rich in minerals, making it one of the least absorbent clays. This is important for dry and sensitive skin because due to its composition, White Kaolin gently cleanses and smoothes the skin. If you have issues with excess oil, the solution can be found in Bentonite or Green clay. It is highly absorbent and does wonders in the ‘getting rid of blackheads, oiliness and pore-cleansing’ area.
Even though normal skin is often overlooked, it still needs love. In order to show appreciation for your normal skin red is the colour you are looking for. It is known for having medium absorbency, and therefore it has a cleansing but not aggressive effect on the skin. The best part is, you can make all of these in your very own home.
This almost sci-fi looking mask that has been running around Instagram, celebrity pampering videos and pretty much everywhere else, made us want to take a closer look and see whether the craze is justified. This product has been a regular cast member in the beauty regiment of Korean women, and as they are known for flawless and incredibly young-looking skin, it is time for us to jump on the bandwagon.
The benefit of these masks lies in their ability to deliver the product deep into our skin in a concentrated way, due to the cover that enables deep penetration of the ingredients.
The Perks of Being Organic
Our love for organic beauty products, particularly masks has resonated far and wide, and cosmetic companies paid attention and have catered to our needs. There are some concoctions that cannot be achieved at home, but luckily, these brands offer safe and natural solutions, that are mess free for our kitchens. Now we can buy excellent products that are not harmful and full of toxic chemicals, and serve to rejuvenate, detoxify and repair dry, damaged skin, brighten and feed the normal one, and purify the oily type.
Now that you know that face masks are here to serve, relax, cleanse, unclog and so much more, the only thing left for you to do, is target your areas of need, choose your weapon and pamper yourself with some seriously beneficial skin treatments. Good luck!
