Different Types of Masks and their Benefit in Skin Care

Women of all ages are becoming more in tune with and aware of the need to properly care for their facial skin. Most women are happy to splurge on anything that can help their skin look radiant, young, and rejuvenated no matter what the cost. Vine Vera would like to present to you some different types of facial masks, and their benefits in skin care.

Clay Masks

White clay has long been revered for its ability to draw out toxins and impurities from within the skin, leaving behind smaller pores and a smooth, clean finish. Clay masks are typically thicker in consistency than other types of masks. The mask is applied to the face using your fingertips, and is left to sit for various amounts of time depending on the masks instructions. Normally, they are left to sit and work their magic anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. Once hardened, the mask is gently washed away – and with it, away go toxins, makeup residue, pore clogging impurities, and dirt and oil, leaving behind a face to be envied. These masks may be used 1-2 times per week. If you have dry skin, refrain from using them more than once per week to keep inflammation of the skin down.


Glycolic Facial Masks

These types of masks are known to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, exfoliate dead skin cells, and reduce redness in the skin. Some brands offer products which are suitable for sensitive skin, while others are not. These masks are great for those who have acne prone skin, or facial scarring due to acne. They help the skin to have a more even tone, and appear healthier. They are also good for those who use cosmetic products daily to clarify the skin. These are applied to the face with the fingertips, and are rinsed away after the allotted sit time. This type of mask is typically thin in texture. These types of masks can be applied once a week.

Mud Masks

Much like the title says, mud masks have been used for many centuries to cleanse impurities from the skin, and also provide healing to problematic skin. Many of these types of masks also contain activated charcoal, which is an added benefit to the clarifying process. These masks help the skin to become healthy, and rid the sufferer of their skin dilemmas. They also have the ability to brighten and soften skin. They are typically a thick type of mask, one that requires rinsing for a few minutes to remove completely. Mud masks are a great choice even for those with sensitive skin.


Peel Off Mask

Peel off masks are a favorite among women due to the fact that they can actually feel the impurities and dead skin being pulled away from the skin during the peeling process. The tightening feeling of the mask is also enjoyable for most women as well. There are many different types of facial peel off masks which perform various duties and which have different skin care benefits. One of the most popular is cucumber infused which provides a calming, cooling feeling to the skin and offers rejuvenation and removal of toxins and impurities. Experiment with the various types to find your favorite – or you could even make your own.
