It can be quite the task trying to find the perfect mask for your skin type - especially if you're dealing with a number of issues at one time. For example, like myself, you may have acne-prone skin which tends to be quite dehydrated but very oily. So what do you buy? A mask for oily skin? Dehydrated skin? Acne-prone skin? Well after years of battling and squeezing my way through tubes of clay, I think I've finally discovered my holy-grail mask collection. Now, there's certainly no need to go and buy a new mask for a skin problem you have just now and then. Perhaps, just begin by buying a mask for your main skin concern, then build upon that. Why not begin be relishing yourself in my list of holy-grail masks below...
The one for large pores/ stressed skin - Our skin just needs a bit of a deep cleanse from time to time. Whether it feels dirty, congested or you see your pores growing right in front of your eyes, sweep this natural clay mask over the face for fresh, glowy skin. The Caudalie Instant Detox Mask purifies stressed skin. The natural clay formula sweeps away impurities and toxins. In addition, the skin texture is refined, pores are tightened and the complexion is even. And did I mention...the smell is delicious.
The one for dry, dehydrated skin - I'm a firm believer that dehydrated skin is formed from over-cleansing and not drinking enough water. To avoid this skin type to begin with, be sure to guzzle down 8-10 glasses of water a day, wash your face gently with a calming cleanser and lightly moisturise. In the meantime, why not opt for the Origins Drink-Up Intensive Mask. You've heard all the beauty bloggers alike talk about this bad boy so I won't ramble on. Let's just say, it's one helluva product.
The one for lacklustre skin - When skin looks or feels dull, your inner-self feels the same, am I right? True glowy skin comes from these; plenty of green veggies, water and exercise. But why not opt for a quick option first and apply the Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask. This product promises (and delivers) to renew your complexion, reduce the appearance of fine lines and dramatically improve skin tone. Additionally, this potent bio-active peel mask deep cleanses, helping to combat congestion, blackheads and blemishes. The result: brighter, healthier and more radiant skin. Who doesn't like the sound of that?
The one for acne-prone skin - From someone who has dealt with severe acne on-and-off for the last three years, trust me on this one when I say it's a good'un. The Origins Clear Improvement Mask uses 'Activate Charcoal' which acts like a magnet to draw out pore-cloggers. White China Clay absorbs environmental pollutants while Lecithin dissolves impurities. Skin breathes a sigh of relief. Bye, bye blemishes.
It's Friday night, the end of a hard-working week and a few hours before the weekend begins - therefore, the perfect excuse for a pamper evening. Whip up some good eats, switch on over to Netflix and apply your favourite mask.
