Facials are a great thing to do to help your skin out. They can reduce acne issues, redness, dryness, dullness, wrinkles, hyper pigmentation and oiliness.
There are different types of masks to help combat each of the above stresses.
Acne can be caused by many things. If you are younger you will find that it is usually caused by hormones and there is a lot that you can do but help soothe the irritation. When you are an adult, pimples are common for those who may eat fatty foods, who don’t drink a lot of water, or who have a lot of stress. Hormones can also contribute adult acne and pimples.
The best type of mask for acne or pimples is a clay based mask. The clay draws out impurities and often there is a soothing component like cucumber or oatmeal added in to help keep the skin supple. There so many styles of clay masks out there and it?s fun to try them all out!
Redness that is caused from irritations like heat, chemicals or hormones can be treated with soothing facial masks that include ingredients like aloe vera, chamomile, oatmeal, avocado and cocoa butter. It should feel soothing and cool on the skin.
Dry skin can occur for two reasons, either from your own natural skin type, or from lack of hydration. Air-conditioning, heating and weather can also contribute to dry skin and there are some great masks out there to help soothe and moisturise your skin. We recommend using masks that boast ingredients like avocado, milk and natural oils like coconut or shea oil.
Dullness can be a result of not having a proper skin routine, poor diet, smoking, tiredness or excessive consumption of stimulants (coffee, alcohol etc). This is one of the biggest signs that you are run down, and even if you are feeling that way on the inside, you can always combat the outer sings with a great face mask. Look for facial masks that say they will brighten your skin tone. You will find some common natural ingredients in brightening masks are honey, milk and lemon juice.
Wrinkles are an inevitable part of growing older, and they show character, experience and a well lived life. If you are at all worried about certain lines or they are appearing a lot earlier than expected, then there are some great face masks that you can use to combat these signs. Look for masks that boast anti-aging properties.
Two major ways that pigmentation can occur is from excess sun exposure and from acne scarring. Sun exposure can cause little spots on the skin, as well uneven skin tone. Acne scaring is sadly an annoying after effect of an experience most like to forget. There are some great options for those with pigmentation. You want to find masks that promote fading, whitening or brightening. You can also find honey and citrus juices in face masks for pigmented skin.
For those of your blessed with oily skin, we often find that we have an oil slick in the middle of our face by the end of the day, our pores are enlarged and we get the odd (or more) pimple. You will find that clay masks are also the best option for the oily skinned person. The clay again draws out impurities including the oil. Other great ingredients found in masks for oily skin include turmeric, lemon and witch hazel.
