I do not think that most people realize the importance of using a mask. They think that all they have to do is visit their esthetician once a month for a facial that includes a mask and they are home free. Actually, masks should be used three times weekly, preferably after you use either an at home peel or exfoliant. The reason you ask.
Masks compliment the products that you are already using and actually speed up the intensity in results. For example: If you usually blast your acne with a salicylic acid cleanser in the morning and benzoyl peroxide cream at night, incorporating a sulphur mask into your routine like Greatskin’s Zinc and Sulphur Mask three times a week will get your skin clearer and faster because each ingredient acts a little differently, but they work together like magic!
In addition, speaking of magic, is your skin looking lack luster, tired, and dull? Then, try Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Gel Mask, which will turn your skin into radiant, refreshed, dewy looking skin in just 10 minutes! It smells divine and its four rose extracts are designed to help tighten pores, stop sagging and strengthen skin’s barrier. What more can you ask for?
Are those annoying enlarged pores got you down? Well, I particularly like both the Revision Black Mask and Refining Pumpkin Mask., along with DCL’s Clay Mint Mask. All three deep clean, unclog, and refine pores. Additionally, they absorb excess oil, and leave skin looking polished and smooth! In addition, those pores will appear smaller!
In addition, speaking of pumpkin which is one of the best anti oxidants for our skin, try Rhonda Allison’s Pumpkin Parfait Mask for anti aging of the skin or try her anti oxidant Chocolate Mask! Yummy!
For sensitive, dry skin, try Peter Thomas Roth’s Cooling Cucumber Mask, an ultra gentle anti irritant gel mask that will both calm and hydrate the skin.
Have you been out in the sun a large portion of your life and are suffering from photo-aged skin? Try Dermalogica’s Multi Vitamin Power Recovery Mask, which has Vitamins A, C, E, and F and will help rescue stressed, aging skin and help repair photo damaged skin while boosting the elasticity of the skin.
Do you understand now why I say masks are so very important for our weekly skin care regime? In addition, I think that they are fun to use to boot!
