Don’t you just LOVE face masks? Admit it, they’re the best! A chance to chill, hard! AND deliver a bunch of concentrated nutrients and gorgeous ingredients deep into your skin. So you chill, then when you’re done, you’re even MORE beautiful! Winner!
But you could have a point if you were to say – which one/s? There are so many! Sheet masks, clay and charcoal masks, fresh ingredient masks, moisturizing masks, eye masks, gel masks, cream masks!
Ok, here’s a quick cheat sheet!
Sheet masks – one use, usually a serum infused into a soft mask with holes for eyes, nose and mouth, that you lay over your face, and you look a little like a creepy burglar! Which is fun!
Charcoal or clay masks – these are super absorbant, and draw impurities out of the skin, and leave your skin feeling amazingly clean and soft!
Moisturising masks – deliver a huge boost of moisture to plump and replenish the skin, leaving you fresh, dewy and super youthful. I’ll have summa that please!
Fresh ingredients – these are masks you can whip up in your kitchen using items like yoghurt, oil, avocado, lemon and more. How fab? Fresh ingredients can work their own magic too!
