How to Choose a Face Mask!!!

  1. Dry Skin – What to look for: Creamy formulas with ingredients that retain water, such as hyaluronic acid and glycerin, are best. Products with vitamin E and olive oil can also help keep moisture sealed into the skin. How to use: This kind of mask doesn’t contain irritants, so you can use it as often as you wish. Apply to the whole face, including sensitive eye and mouth areas. And don’t forget the neck.
  2. Fine lines- What to look for: A moisturizing formula that includes retinol, glycollic acid or peptides works well on skin that’s been damaged by time or tanning. No mask will eliminate wrinkles, but these ingredients can temporarily plump up skin and make it look smoother. How to use: Glycollic acid can irritate skin, so do not use these masks more than two times a week- and avoid eye and mouth areas. Apply evenly to the rest of the face and other spots- such as the tops of hands- that are similarly prone to sun damage.
  3. Rosacea/Redness – What to look for: Calming ingredients like aloe vera, chamomile, cucumber, maple and green tea will reduce redness and inflammation temporarily. Formulas with suffer, licorice root extract and xanthine can help constrict visible capillaries. How to use: Start by applying once a week. If it works, you can bump it up to twice a week. These masks are gentle and can be applied all over the face. To remove the mask, use your fingers. They’re less irritating than a washcloth.
  4. Acne Prone Skin – What to look for: You need anti-inflammatory ingredients like Salicylic Acid (which exfoliates and cleans out pores) and formulas with Benzoyl peroxide and suffer, which kill bacteria. How to use: Use once a week to avoid drying out skin, and apply to wherever you usually break out- whether that’s the T-Zone or all over (but avoid eye and mouth areas).
