Choosing your mask
The mask is finally one of the easiest products to choose when you know what you want to improve on your skin: fight against imperfections, put an end to discomfort or bring an anti-aging action... you will just have to be careful on one point: the degree of sensitivity of your skin. For the most sensitive, make sure not to choose a mask that is too strong or stimulating. In the same way that one will also avoid the masks too rich if the skin tends to make buttons.
For skin looking for a glow
For a new skin, nothing beats an exfoliating mask: you can choose one based on fruit acids, enzymes or glycolic acid for example, which will nibble away at the surface of the skin all the dead cells responsible for a dull complexion. When left on for just a few minutes, they promise an express radiance boost... so no more excuses not to get started! Sensitive skin types should opt for gentle exfoliating masks, such as Tata Harper's BHA-based Resurfacing Mask.
For dehydrated skin
If hyaluronic acid is systematically the star ingredient of moisturizing masks, it is because by penetrating the tissues, this molecule fights dehydration by swelling like a sponge to fill our skin with water. It is therefore the ingredient to track down absolutely for a visibly plumped and comfortable skin... the proof by 3, with our three masks armored in hyaluronic acid.
Case 2: I have pimples and sensitive skin
Is your skin overheated or irritated? Applying a soothing mask once or twice a week will beagreat help in repairing an altered skin barrier and extinguishing inflammation. Honey, calendula, St. John's wort, arnica... will also make the skin more resistant to external aggressions and help prevent skin aging. This type of mask can also be perfectly applied all night long.
For blemish prone skin
Each problem skin has its own purifying mask: if it is sensitive, choose a mask based on gentle purifying active ingredients such as honey, white clay, or copaiba. And for skin that does not have sensitivity problems, charcoal, sulfur, mint or tea tree extracts are perfect allies to stop pimples and boost healing.
For mature skin
We track down cocoon masks (because the skin dehydrates more easily), and advanced formulas with antioxidants, peptides or hyaluronic acid to fill in wrinkles, rehydrate and fade small pigmentation spots... In just a few minutes, the skin is as if it were smoothed out and the complexion is so much more radiant! Some masks can also be applied to the eye contour area to rehydrate this too often forgotten zone.
