I can’t think of a time I went into a department store and didn’t leave with a little sample of the newest beauty product. So yes, I consider it important that we as women pamper our skin on a regular basis.
Specifically, I don’t normally share what I like and what has worked for my skin over the years. But, I do enjoy a good facial mask on an occasional basis. I have been using them since my teen years and I can attest to their effectiveness.
The benefits of incorporating a good quality facial mask into your skin routine are various, depending on what your skin needs are. Oily skin may benefit from a clay mask or peel off mask in order to control shine and sebum, whereas dry skin may need added moisture and may benefit from a cream or warm oil mask in order for a moisturizer’s performance to be enhanced. More advanced masks seek to target the aging effects we begin to see in our mid-30’s, providing a boost in collagen levels for skin to look firmer and more supple. Typically, it’s good to incorporate a facial mask into your routine every two weeks. I personally have seen better results with this particular timeline as opposed to a monthly routine. Another thing to try before applying a mask is to lightly exfoliate the skin, this way dead skin is eliminated and can more rapidly and better absorb the ingredients the mask has to offer.
I am sharing with you some of the best facial masks out there right now at various price points, targeting various skin issues depending on your specific skin needs.
