Regardless of your skin type, you should create a targeted routine that focuses on nourishing and healing your skin.
Focusing on skincare is a step that everyone should incorporate into their self-care routine. Whether you wear makeup regularly, spend most of your day inside or have constant exposure to external aggressors, your skin definitely needs some TLC, especially during the winter months. Regardless of your skin type, you should create a targeted routine that focuses on nourishing and healing your skin.
Even if you don’t use a lot of products, it’s important to ensure your routine includes at least one face mask per week. Using a targeted face mask will help treat your skin, whilst hydrating, removing excess oil and helping with the appearance of your pores. It’s worth noting that different types of face masks bring different benefits as well. Some types of face masks are often more suitable for specific skin types and concerns. Other masks contain extra ingredients which will bring extra benefits to your skin.
When you think about face masks, the first thing that pops into everyone’s minds is a traditional clay face mask. Not only is it the most popular option, but it also has so many positive skin benefits. Clay is known to detoxify and hydrate your skin, without using any oil, making it perfect choice for people who have oily or combination skin. It can also soothe redness and treat breakouts. Using a face mask on an everyday basis is not really recommended and you should definitely not be using a clay face mask every single day but using it once or twice a week is great for your skin.
If you are looking for a cooling mask, then you definitely need to incorporate a gel mask into your skincare routine. It’s perfect for those who have dry or sensitive skin as it can help hydrate and soothe your skin. These types of face masks are perfect to use during the colder months or when your skin lacks moisture. But you can of course use it at any time of the year and in summertime, it will bring a cooling sensation to your skin which will be perfect.
Cream face masks are another popular type of face mask which are widely used amongst people since they are all rich in oils. Not only are they perfect for those who have dry skin but people who have oily skin can use them as well. It can add extra moisture & hydration to your skin.
Last but not least, we have sheet masks. They are perfect for all skin types and are very effective as well. Most people forget that sheet masks are in the same category as face masks since their texture is completely different to one another but they are as efficient as any other types of face masks. In addition, they are travel-friendly which makes it perfect to use them when you are travelling somewhere or when you are away from home.
