Of course, a good basic skincare routine is a must. But when your skin starts acting crazy…and it will. You need a good face mask to set things back in order.

Choosing a good face mask - types | Naturally Stellar

 

What Is A Good Face Mask?

I’m a firm believer in good face masks. They have the ability to transform your skin, unlike any other product. 

In a nutshell, a good face mask is the one that works best for you.  Facial masks come in a wide variety of formulas, textures, price ranges and application types (gel masks, paper/sheet masks, creams, clays, and liquids).

So, it’s important to pay close attention to your pockets (lol), your skin type and any skin sensitivities you may have before you buy.

I like to use sheet masks when I’m either pressed for time or it’s late at night. I also like to use them before I do my makeup for an event or photoshoot. They’re convenient and generally inexpensive.  I prefer to be able to relax or lay down for a bit while it works its magic. 

So if destressing is also important to you try adding a sheet mask to your bedtime beauty routine. Your skin will thank you for it.

Clay masks or peeling masks are things I like to use fresh from the shower or when I have a little more time to pamper my skin.  So for me, these work best on the weekends or after my weekday workouts. I will advise you to invest in a good clay or peeling mask.

It’s worth it to spend a little more for quality deep cleansing ingredients. Also if organic or all-natural ingredients are what you’re striving for I’d recommend forking out the $$ for a better performing skincare product.

My Favorite Mask Type and Why

One of my favorite things to use each week after my post-workout shower is a deep pore mud mask. I let my skin steam naturally from the shower, pat it dry when I get out and immediately apply my mud mask.

My favorite deep pore cleansing mask to use post-workout (after my shower).

This Dead Sea Mud Mask by Art Naturals works great on my sensitive/oily/acne-prone skin.  I like it because it goes deep into my pores to clean and the removal process does a great job at exfoliation. 

I tend to sweat through this one but it does a really good job of removing dirt, oil and dead skin. It’s perfect for monthly hormonal acne flare-ups too and spot treatments.

Things can get a little messy so preparations are always in order for clay masks. I keep a ratty t-shirt or towel handy for cleaning up messes. 

Also, keep a fresh washcloth nearby to help remove any leftover mask residue. Just wet it with warm water, ring it out and wipe your entire face gently. Repeat if necessary. Then pat dry.

Immediately apply your moisturizer or even better, mist your face with a nice facial mist before applying your moisturizer. Trust me on this.  Skin absorbs moisture products better with lightly moist skin.
