Masks – The Next Step to Great Skin

I routinely get asked “Do I really need a mask?” My answer is yes! Masks can be the unsung hero in our skincare routine. It’s the one product that most clients don’t feel is ‘essential’ to their regime. Masks have a definite place in your routine and can add a boost to your overall skin health. As we leave the humid summer behind and the weather starts to cool our skin can feel dull, dehydrated and generally a bit blah. Reaching for a mask can address the skin needs whilst boosting overall skin health.

So why should I use a mask?

Face masks have the ability to drive ingredients deeper into the skin. They create a physical barrier that locks in active ingredients and allows for better absorption into the skin’s layers. You can generally see an immediate effect with a mask. Masks are a great option to use before a special event or night out to give your skin a glow.

Masks will address many different skin types and conditions such as:

  • Dehydration and dryness
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and oiliness
  • Blackheads
  • Premature ageing
  • Sensitive and sensitivity
  • Dullness and pigmentation

How often should I use a mask?

Masks are on average a once-a-week product and easy to use. Apply after cleansing and exfoliation. Most masks are left on the skin for about 10-15 minutes then removed and followed by moisturiser.

What type of masks should I use?

Masks come in a variety of formulations such as creams, gels, clays, exfoliating masks, and sheet masks.

What mask should I use for my skin concern?

There are many masks to choose from for different skin types and conditions. We have outlined below some suggested options to get you started:

Sensitivity and sensitive:

Using a calming mask can help reduce redness, irritation and soothe the skin.

Cream or sheet masks are excellent for dry or dehydrated skin. Simple and easy to use, they can add instant hydration and comfort to the skin.

Ageing
