Face Mask 101: Yes You Should Use Them and Here’s Why

Face masks are the boost your skin needs each week, and while they may feel indulgent, the right face mask can address key skin concerns and issues in a big way. Delivering high concentrations of antioxidants (e.g., vitamins and minerals) straight to your skin, masks work to first provide, then lock in beneficial ingredients allowing your skin to look, feel, and absorb all your skincare products better. Let’s break down our favorite masks, the ingredients that make them skincare game changers, and how they will nourish not only your skin, but maybe even your soul. 

Balance Superfood Mask: If you struggle with combo or oily skin, this super-charged mask treatment is just what you need. This clay mask goes on buttery smooth and won’t dry out the skin as it works to restore natural balance. Superfoods such as kale, spinach, and spirulina nourish the skin and protect it from aging free radicals. Kaolin clay absorbs excess oil and detoxifies, and antioxidants fortify the skin’s natural protective barrier. 

Lift Up Firming Mask: This is your anti-aging superhero. This age-defying gel mask is rich in free radical-fighting antioxidants, such as co-enzyme Q10, algae and glucosamine—which are known to give the skin a tighter, firmer look. 

Moisture Plus Nourishing Mask: If your skin is dehydrated, dry, and showing those fine lines and wrinkles, turn things around with this thick and creamy mask. It nourishes and protects with sunflower oil, muru muru, cocoa and shea butter, while reparative antioxidants and hyaluronic acid improve skin quality and make your skin feel radiant. 

Super Soothe 2 in 1 Calming Mask: This one is for all those skin conditions that flare up at the worst times. Whether your skin is irritated from acne, sunburn, or an inflammatory skin condition, this powerful mask relieves redness and irritation in a flash. Canadian Willow Bark, arnica, and lavender work in harmony to help improve redness by 40-60% in just three minutes. Butcher's broom soothes irritation, leaving your skin calm and cool. 

Detox Clay Mask: Use this mask to purge those pores and get your skin back on track. Perfect for acne-prone skin or to even spot treat those blemishes, this mineral-rich mask is a fast-acting solution for breakouts. Kaolin clay and sulfur work together to battle blemishes caused by bacteria. Zinc oxide promotes healing while aloe and vitamin E soothe and condition.
