How to choose the right face mask?

Beauty face masks are a skincare essential for a healthy, glowing complexion. Need some help to choose the right one?

There are beauty face masks for every skin! Treat yourself to a relaxing moment while revitalising, soothing and intensely moisturising your skin.

Face mask: an ancient beauty secret

Beauty face masks are a must-have in any skincare routine. Their use took shape in ancient times, from India to the Mediterranean, to achieve fresh skin and a glowing complexion. 

In Ancient Egypt, as well as in Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire, women used to prepare their face masks with natural ingredients, such as honey, olive oil, figs, dates, dried flowers, clay or donkey milk. They were made to heal, to protect, to soothe, to hydrate the skin and to rewind the years.


Nowadays, face masks are still commonly employed and highly appreciated for their effective results in improving skin health. Packed with nutrients, vitamins and moisturising agents, they help to restore the skin's natural balance and reduce premature aging signs.


The face mask is one of your best skincare allies for a glowing and revitalised skin.

What type of mask is best for my skin type?

Purifying masks, moisturising masks, exfoliating masks, anti-aging face masks … it can be hard to know which mask is best for which skin type! The thing face masks have in common generally is their nourishing properties. As a matter of fact, every skin needs moisturising, no matter what type it is.


In order to choose the right face mask, the first thing you need to know is your skin type. Sensitive skin, dry skin, normal skin, combination skin, oily skin? There is a mask for every need.


Your skin has a shiny or greasy appearance?

Chances are you have combination to oily skin, with a slight need for sebum regulation. A detox purifying face mask, with green clay, for example, might help to absorb excess sebum and mattify your skin. When it comes to deeply cleaning the pores of the skin and improving complexion, Fruit acids are also considered skincare superheroes.


Your skin feels rather tight or itchy?

You most likely have sensitive to dry skin. In that case, a nourishing face mask, filled with hyaluronic acid, Vitamin E or other powerful moisturising agents, will be the perfect match to repair, soothe and deeply hydrate your face. Glycerin, Aloe Vera, avocado and shea butter are a few examples of effective ingredients to rejuvenate skin cells.


People with normal type skin can choose their mask depending on their current needs.



How to use your beauty face mask?

Face masks have many different aspects and textures: peel-off masks, sheet masks, overnight masks, cream, gel… several possibilities to light up a perfect, relaxing moment with a pinch of fun.


To make the most of all the product’s active ingredients, the first step is to prepare the skin before applying the mask on your face. Cleaning the skin, with a good scrub, for example, is required to unclog and open the pores and achieve the best results.


Always refer to the mask’s instructions to know how long you should apply your mask for. You are making your own face mask? If it starts to dry or you feel any discomfort (such as itching) it is time to take it off. Wearing your beauty face mask for too long might damage your skin and dry it out for instance.


To avoid any allergic reaction always apply a small amount of the product to a small area before you use it all over your face.


Masks are an amazing skincare product to include in your beauty routine and are best used 3 to 4 times a month.
