Face masks can be an incredible addition to your skincare routine. They have many functions, such as exfoliation, deep cleansing, pore minimizing, and tightening. However, it's important to know just what face mask is right for you. Mud, clay, brightening, sheet, and gel masks are just a few of the numerous options and ingredients you can choose. Depending on your skin type, you need to be equipped with the knowledge to find your holy grail!
Types of Masks
Gel masks are ideal for that jelly-like feeling. They typically have antibacterial agents that work well for sun exposure and cleansing the skin. The drawback is that they don't do much else and are prone to irritation if not used with caution.
Cream masks are wonderful for hydrating skin, as they are made specifically to be absorbed to soothe irritated skin. Many times, however, a good moisturizer or lotion can achieve the same results.
Peel-off or sheet masks are designed to improve brightness. However, it is important to research these, as they are also most prone to irritating your skin. The adhesive and/or peel mechanism can be harmful. These masks have less nourishing benefits, and are typically just used to relax (and for the occasional selfie).
Clay or mud masks are ideal for exfoliating, detoxifying, and minimizing pores. However, they also have their drawbacks. They dry the skin and will leave you needing a high quality moisturizer to rejuvenate the skin.
Manda's Garden's Organic Golden Osmanthus Face Mask is a blend of brightening, gel, and exfoliating face masks. It deep cleans pores for an exfoliating effect without drying the skin out. The Golden Osmanthus detoxifies the skin and removes impurities to even skin tones and brighten the face. Because it is flower-derived, it is effective yet gentle enough to be used on even the most sensitive skin without irritation.
