As a beauty blogger, I am asked a question several times if any face mask is really needed. And always my answer is, ‘yes’! Face Masks are needed for deep cleansing. If you need flawless skin, you have to go through a strict beauty ritual that includes C-T-M, that is Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing. With these three, a special treatment is needed, that is using Facial Masks to clean your pores deeply, help your moisturizer work effectively, detoxify, de-stress, increase blood circulation. That means masks provide a deep nourishment to your skin.
The masks come in different types, as creams, gels, muds or in sheets. The masks need not use daily. Generally, masks are used twice a week. But you can use them more depending on your needs or skin concerns. The masks are usually kept on face for 15/20 minutes and are rinsed off. When you buy a face mask, ensure that you are buying according to your skin type and skin concerns. Otherwise it’ll not show any result to the skin.
Here are some masks according to different skin types and different skin concerns.
