Face masks are the perfect way to wind down and give your skin a little extra love. There are so many masks out there for so many different purposes, and it can be hard to track down which one would work best for you. Everyone’s skin is unique and it’s important that you’re using products with ingredients that will benefit you the most. Here’s a guide for which mask you should try depending on your specific skin needs:
If your skin is feeling dry and dehydrated, try this mask from Glossier. It’s formulated with sweet almond oil, plant-based squalane, hyaluronic acid and many other beneficial ingredients for boosting and retaining hydration. Other ingredients like honey and aloe will soothe the skin, and won’t give you that tight feeling that a lot of masks do. Using this treatment about once a week will save you from dry spots and flakey skin this winter.
If your skin is feeling clogged and problematic, try this mask from Glam Glow. Activated-X charcoal works to clear and lift anything from your skin that shouldn’t be there. Its main purpose is to clear your complexion, so this is perfect to use if you’re struggling with stubborn acne and clogged pores. After applying, you can actually see it working on your skin. It may be expensive but it is definitely worth picking up a sample and giving it a try.
If your skin is looking dull and uneven, try this mask from Mario Badescu. Kojic acid and licorice help to lighten and brighten any pigmentation and scars. Zinc oxide helps to heal any irritation and other botanicals reduce redness and inflammation. Adding this treatment into your skin care regimen can reduce unwanted blotchiness and discoloration without being too harsh.
If your skin is feeling oily and you need a deep clean, try this mask from First Aid Beauty. Red Clay is proven to purify and regulate your skin’s excess sebum. Its absorbing powers will help you if you’re constantly oily and need a quick detox. This mask will also help with tightening and leaving your skin smoother than ever.
If your skin needs a fresh start, try this mask from TULA. This product is both physically and chemically exfoliating to remove dead skin cells and reveal a fresh and even complexion. The lactic acid and bentonite clay chemically peel away dead skin, and biodegradable beads physically exfoliate while releasing hydrating nutrients. While it does get the job done, this is one of the only masks that will leave your skin feeling new without feeling dehydrated. (You can get 25% off + free shipping with code emily25)
