Beauty talk: facial masks

A face mask can elevate your skin from good to great. While many of us relegate applying a face mask to something we do hardly ever, we actually need to use masks—and use them often—no matter our skin type. Masks are an extremely important part of our skincare routine because they’re a concentrated version of a product that contains way more active ingredients than others. Do you need a face mask?  One of the best ways to target many skin issues (think fine lines, wrinkles, dry skin, rosacea, oily skin and even blemished skin) is with a face mask. Facial masks treat your particular skin type or condition. The key is finding the right face mask for you and your skin. For dry skin, a mask can be hydrating, for rosacea a mask can bring inflammation down and heal the skin. A mask for acneic skin will calm and purify the skin. Anti aging masks deposit antioxidants, brighten and hydrate the skin, great for fine lines and wrinkles. Find the right mask for what your skin needs now. //Beat Dry Skin Hydrating masks are the key to beating dry skin, especially during the winter. White algae, seaweed and green tea are just some of the ingredients you may find in a hydrating facial mask. Use the mask after cleansing, but before putting on night cream.

Instead, look for clay-based masks, which have the capability of drawing out dirt and excess oils, while tightening your pores.

Such masks can give your face a smoother and brighter appearance, while minimizing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Seek out masks that have extracts from berries which aid in resurfacing the skin.
