Facing Up To Facemasks: Figuring out what's what


Face masks seem to be everywhere. They can be useful products to add to your beauty routine, but they're also a little confusing. There are different types of mask with a range of purposes. Choosing one that works for you isn't always easy, especially if you don't know where to start. You need to find a mask that works for your skin type and helps you to achieve your goals. You might want to use an anti-ageing mask or one that helps you get rid of blackheads. Before you choose a mask, you should have a look at what's out there to understand what's what.

Types of Mask

Face masks vary in their application. Some of them are meant for you to put on, dry and then peel off. Others are intended for washing off, while others are meant to simply sit over your face. Understanding how each one benefits you will help you choose the right type. Mud masks and clay masks are simply washed off when you're finished with them, these are great to help treat oily skin, whilst peel-off masks are intended to help with blemishes. Cream and gel masks are lighter than mud and clay ones and have the opposite effect of moisturising. You can also get sheet masks, that you lay over your face.

Mask Purposes

Face masks claim to do a huge range of things. Beyond the basic purposes of the different types of mask, various products will supposedly have certain properties. Some are meant for moisturising, while others should draw out oil and moisture. Some masks will claim to tighten your skin or help with anti-ageing. You can get a face mask meant for brightening your skin or one to fight blemishes. It's easy to just look at the packaging and see what a mask claims to do. But don't forget to check reviews to see if they work.

Finding the Mask for You

Choosing a mask that works for you isn't as simple as picking one with an express purpose. Everyone's skin is different and so are your preferences when it comes to beauty products. Some types of mask might not be to your taste, and others just might not work for you. When you're looking for the right mask, start off by finding recommended products to try. Decide what requirements you have, whether it's natural skincare or low price. If you can get hold of a free sample, that's even better. You need to try something out to see if it will really work for you.

Using Your Mask

Applying a face mask can be a little messy. If you want to use yours more easily, you might consider making sure you have the right tools. You can get face mask spatulas or gloves to make it easier to apply them. Make sure you follow the instructions on the packaging to ensure you get the most out of your mask.

Face masks can make great additions to your beauty routine but only if you use the right products. Consider them carefully to find one that works for you.
