How face masks work
You moisturise your face daily, so you might question whether you need to use a face mask. The answer is a resounding yes! While a moisturiser does a great job at keep your skin hydrated and smooth on a day-to-day basis, consider a face mask a weekly intensive treat.
Here are our top reasons to incorporate a face mask into your skincare regime:
1. Face masks have richer formulas compared to moisturisers, which means they really ramp up skin hydration for a smooth, supple complexion.
2. Face masks are worn in a thick layer over the skin and left to work their magic for 10-20 minutes before rinsing off, which means that a lot more product is being absorbed deep into the skin.
3. Some face masks, such as clay masks, also work to draw toxins out of the skin. The Claudia Louch Natural Skin Clinic Mineral Mud Mask does just that, creating a clearer, healthier complexion.
4. Because the nature of face masks encourages you to lie back and relax for 10-20 minutes while they get to work, it is a great to reduce your stress levels, too.
