A MASK FOR EVERYONE
Face masks come in many forms, sizes and textures. Some are better for certain skin types or needs, for example, if your skin is oily a clay mask could work best.
Fists let’s talk about sheet masks, a Korean classic. These are usually cheaper and easier to apply. The formulas that they use can be versatile and address multiple skin problems.
Then there are clay or mud masks, to soak up dirt and oil. They can help pores look smaller and leave the skin softer and smoother. These might be a little messier, but they are good at getting to all the targeted areas.
Cream masks are next. These are easy to apply and wash off, with a less gooey feeling. They are usually packed with moisturising oils to hydrate your skin. They don’t need to be rinsed off, as you could only wipe them off and leave the excess cream to keep treating your face.
There are also some masks that can be left overnight. They are extremely popular in Asia and are now going to the rest of the world. They make the effects really sink in and all you need to do is go to bed.
