What are Face Masks?
You may have seen all kinds of face masks in your life…especially the famous green clay face mask. These days, there are “natural face masks” made out of all kinds of supposedly beneficial ingredients, and some are even made with stranger ingredients – 24k gold, snail mucus, bee venom, and even caviar! These are some interesting ingredients to say the least! But what is a face mask used for? Many people think of these as special treatments only applied on fancy spa days. They’re like the decadent dessert of skin care in many people’s lives. Face masks are actually an important part of your skin care routine, not necessarily required to do daily, but for the best results, masking at least 2-3 times a week brings your skin the most benefits.
There are different masks for all different skin types, but not all masks should be used for all skin types (unless you’re using natural face masks – more on that later). Clay masks may be great for drawing out impurities, helping to reduce oil, and preventing blemishes. However this type of mask may not be suitable for dry or sensitive skin types as they could dry out or irritate the skin further. Enter our natural face masks. These masks are beneficial for all skin types, and are able to aid certain conditions depending on the mask.
