Let’s say you have an entire skin care regimen consisting of a cleanser, toner, moisturizer and SPF, but you’re still struggling with breakouts. You have the complete skin care regimen, right? Actually, there’s something missing from your routine: the mask. Facial masks provide additional or deeper treatments to the skin, but many tend to neglect them.
Masks can be used to moisturize, detoxify, and replenish nutrients. If you find that you are breaking out, a mask could be the answer. Choose a mask based on your skin type and the issue you’d like to correct. While it’s true that not many of us are looking to add time to our skin care routines, a mask could be one of the most effective steps you’ll take.
Sulfur masks are to be used in the midst of a breakout to control oil production. Sulfur also accelerates cell turnover by getting rid of dead skin cells and buildup that can clog pores. This ingredient helps dry out existing blemishes and prevents the spread of acne-causing bacteria.
