There is nothing quite like relaxing with a face mask on to level up your skincare regimen. Using a face mask in between facials can help you reach your skincare goals no matter your skin type. Like serums and moisturizers, a face mask is a skincare vehicle. It delivers highly concentrated actives and vitamins to the skin to improve the overall quality of the skin's appearance. Face masks are occlusive - they create a physical barrier that locks in beneficial ingredients, allowing them to work more efficiently. Using a face mask two times a week that’s suitable for your skin type can assist with better looking tone and smoother texture. Masking should follow cleansing, toning, and applying a facial toner. These steps clear away impurities and excess oil, provide a base layer of hydration, and prep your skin to better absorb the benefits of your face mask.
The skin around our eyes is significantly thinner and more fragile than the skin on the rest of our face. Meaning the eye area is incredibly delicate and more vulnerable to environmental stressors, dehydration, and premature aging. Simply put, we need to show extra care and love to our eye area! And luckily, there are serums, moisturizers, and other skincare products to help.
Serums were one of those products that I just wasn't sure I needed in my skincare regime. In all honesty, I wasn't quite entirely sure what their purpose was and if my skin needed them. That's when I did some research and purchased a few that were suitable for my skin type. Now I can't even imagine how I ever lived without them before! They helped me transform my problem skin (which can tend to look dull at times) into a dewy goddess-like complexion. Anyways, the main takeaway is that face serums rock and now a staple in my skincare regimen!
