Masks are the secret to great skin, whether instantly hydrating, brightening or detoxifying the lymphatic system, masks have become an essential part of a solid skin-care routine. But figuring out what type to use, and when, can be a challenge so we thought we'd give you a little hand for your skin to make the most of...your mask.
SKIN PROBLEM: HYPERPIGMENTATION OR DULL SKIN To revive a dull complexion or skin that is suffering from hyperpigmentation the top layers of the skin need to be exfoliated and the resurfacing skin needs to be 'activated' to reflect its natural luminosity. So masks with serious exfoliators and brighteners are key. Don't feel tempted to be harsh on the skin in the quest to achieve a glow, swap your chemically produced alpha hydroxy acids, which can severely dry out the skin, with more gentle natural fruit enzymes.
WE RECOMMEND: Brighten and Exfoliate Pineapple and Gemstone Mask; with Brazilian White Tourmaline Gemstone to brighten and illuminate the complexion and papaya and pineapple enzymes to resurface and exfoliate.
SKIN PROBLEM: DEHYDRATED OR DRY SKIN
To calm and hydrate the skin, a creamy, vitamin-infused textured mask should be at the top of your list. Cream masks aimed at dry skin often have elements with a lot of fatty acids Omega 3,6 and 9 to regenerate skin cells and repair damaged tissue and hyaluronic acid for hydrating. WE RECOMMEND:
The Pink Clay Hyaluronic Acid Mega Moisturising Mask; with Rosehip and low weight molecular bio identical hyaluronic acid that sinks into the skin to deeply hydrate.
SKIN PROBLEM: (HORMONAL) ACNE PRONE OR BLEMISHED SKIN It’s really important to understand what type of skin you have and what is causing you to break out. Blemishes are often a reflection of irritated and stressed out skin whether it is due to pollution, dietary habits or can be caused by hormonal acne, and whilst you can't stop the hormones your skin will thank you for the helping hand. What you need is a mask that is as exfoliating as it is soothing so look for Beta Hydroxy Acids and Alpha Hydroxy acids combined with seriously skin calming ingredients to gently steer the skin in the right direction.
WE RECOMMEND: Blue Tansy Resurfacing Mask, with natural Beta Hydroxy and Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Blue Tansy Oil, naturally high in Azulene to reduce irritation and calm the skin.
