To get to grip with face whims, a weekly mask is necessary. But above all, you have to know how to choose it according to your skin type: oily, dry, mixed, or mature. With each skin its own mask.

I have a combination to oily skin

The mixed or oily skin has too much sebum production, so they need assets that will regulate and absorb the excess.

Masks are important to rid the skin of impurities. Black dots are not resistant to zinc, the pores are closed thanks to essential oils again. Try this bioactive and berry fruit enzyme mask.

I have dry and sensitive skin

Dry skin tugs, peels and is very fragile, especially when the cold of winter arrives. To not suffer all these inconveniences, it is necessary to hydrate them.

The application of a daily day cream is essential, often a night cream too, but a moisturizing and nourishing mask is an essential step to take care of your dry skin. It is, therefore, necessary to choose a mask having, for example, hyaluronic acid which deeply hydrates and fights against the early aging of the skin, to which dry skin is particularly sensitive. Other components are important to provide fatty assets that nourish the skin, including natural ingredients such as avocado, shea butter or argan oil.

Essential oils are also good assets, such as lemon balm, horsetail or white birch that strengthen the tone of the epidermis.

Before a mask, it is good to prepare the skin by removing the small dead skin which is encrusted in the pores by using a scrub. Once clean and clean, the skin will be more receptive to the mask’s assets.

For masks made of clay, do not let them sit too long because the dried clay will dry the skin too much and may weaken it.

To remove a mask, use a soft glove moistened with warm water will get rid of any residue, then finish with a quick rinse with cold water to close the pores.
