Why you need a good face mask

Why you need a good face mask

So, we all love a pamper night with a glass of wine and a good old face mask, but what face mask is good for our skin? What do they really do? 

I’ve always been a strong believer for being healthy and happy from within which will help you look your most youthful, glowing self. Yet, most recently I’ve realised I need a little bit more help if I want to look more youthful, glowing and flawless. So, I decided to consider the different types of face masks and what benefits they have. From what I’ve discovered there are three main ones…

 

Detoxifying masks

Designed to extract blackheads and pull out any disgusting oils from your pores. 

 

 Resurfacing masks 

This one is made to help the skin resurface and pull out all the acids and enzymes from your face, making it look more youthful and clean.

 

Hydrating Masks

This one doesn't have the standard instant effect but the long-term effect of adding a little bit more H2O to your skin.
