Face masks have been around for centuries and are an important part of a skincare routine. And a lovely way of relaxing, a bit of home pampering and grabbing some ‘me time’. Today, there’s a bewildering choice of face masks, all for different skin types, problems and ages. But what to choose? Here’s a quick summary of the main types and how Forever Living’s range of masks can help with different skin types:
They help balance out the oils in your skin by regulating excess sebum and tightening pores. They also help smooth and soften the surface of your skin, which make them ideal for oily, congested skin. Acneic skin is tricky as it overreacts to many things, so avoid oil-stripping ingredients.
Forever Marine Mask is perfect for problem skin. It contains marine mineral extracts for gentle cleansing, and honey and cucumber with aloe for moisturising.
It’s also wonderful as a hand and foot treatment – take a look here:
If you’ve got dry skin, you’ll want to avoid any ultra-drying mud or clay masks, even if you have acne. Look instead for a hydrogel mask, especially a sleeping mask. Sleeping masks are also perfect if you’ve got anti-aging concerns because most restorative work on your skin happens overnight.
Sonya Refining Gel Mask supports balance by controlling oil and brightening the appearance of skin. With a bounty of botanicals, fruit extracts and moisturisers, you’ll wake up to skin that looks brighter, younger and more balanced. It’s an overnight facial, working while you sleep.
Sheet masks are probably the most versatile category of face masks out there. And the best kind of sheet mask is a bio-cellulose mask. Bio-cellulose fibres have the ability to both absorb and donate moisture and liquids, making them the perfect carrier for delivering nourishing ingredients to your skin. Bio-cellulose masks cling to the skin, meaning they get into every little part of your face, and they won’t dry out during use.
Through a unique process , aloe bio-cellulose mask’s formula fuses pure aloe and seagrass with the bio-cellulose fabric to soothe, soften and condition skin. This environmentally-friendly mask has also been enriched by a moisturising serum of green tea and horse chestnut that rejuvenates dull skin by combating the signs of ageing and reducing the appearance of redness.
