There are many benefits to regularly using face masks as they nourish, moisturise, detoxify and increase blood flow to the surface of the skin. Skin in turn appears cleaner, brighter and smoother. Face masks come in different forms such as clay, gel, peel-off, and mud to oil, to name a few. As with all skin care products it is important to use the mask that is most suitable for your skin type to gain optimum results.
The right mask for you?
For very dry skin you need a gentle, hydrating and soothing face mask. Thalgo® Melt Away Instant Mask will tend to all these needs. This mask nourishes the skin leaving it supple and smooth eliminating feelings of tightness and discomfort that many people with dry skin experience. This mask just needs to stay on for 10 – 15 minutes, then just gently rinse off. Your skin will feel and look amazing.
Elizabeth Arden® Peel & Reveal Revitalising Mask is suitable for all skin types. This is a wonderful product that gives fantastic results. Using the applicator provided apply a thin layer to cleansed skin and relax for 15-20 minutes. When the time is up just peel off the face to reveal beautiful smooth and re-textured skin.
Another fabulous mask that is suitable for most skin types is the Glamglow® Powermud Mask. Apply the mask and leave for 10 minutes until it dries to a dry clay finish then by using gentle circular motions on the face the mask turns to an oil that deep cleanses the skin. This is a super-deep cleaning mask that de-clogs the pores and removes excess oil build up.
The eye area has such delicate skin it needs a very special treatment. Glamglow® Brightmud Eye Treatment is just the thing to sort out dark circles, lines, puffiness and tired eyes. It contains 12 single use chrome cell treatments with tapwipe bioactive technology. This is just a 3 minute treatment that gives incredible results. This rejuvenating eye mask combats the appearance of lines while giving superb hydrating and plumping effect.
Masks should be used at least once a week for maximum results; so, pamper yourself with a wonderful face or eye mask from Whelehans!
