Dear Hope: Do Face Masks Work?
Do face masks work? I have never used a face mask but have been wanting to. I’m just not sure if they are good for your skin or with one to use. Any advice would help.
Facial masks can be a great addition to your regular face cleansing routine. There are several different kinds, so it depends on your skin type. You can use a face mask to get rid of acne, firm your skin, hydrate it, or even out your skin tone. Whatever your concerns are there is probably a face mask that will help.
Clay Masks – Are usually for oily T-zones or acne-prone skin.
Hydrating Masks- Soothe and moisturize your skin.
Exfoliating Masks – Can soften and smooth your skin.
If your skin is sensitive, find one that says for sensitive skin or says good for all skin types.
If you want a more natural approach, you can make your own masks.
You shouldn’t have any problems, as long as you pick one that is right for your skin type and you follow the directions.
You can usually do your face mask 1-2 times a week, but follow the directions of which ever one you choose.
Face masks can also be relaxing. Have fun!
Thank you for being brave and sending in your question.
