Masks 101 Part 1
As well as being a relaxing pampering treat, facials play a key role in achieving healthy, youthful looking skin and we all love the radiant glow that you leave with so why not recreate that magic at home tonight, after all, we all deserve some me-time.
Types of masks
Facial masks are designed to suit specific skin types and treat a range of skin conditions. There are a plethora of masks with a variety of textures from sheet masks to cream masks. If you have dry skin a hydrating mask can help to moisturise and smooth or for oily and congested skin a clay mask can draw out impurities, purify and deep cleanse the skin.
Most masks are formulated to stay on skin for up to 20 mins but leave-on masks can be left on overnight to penetrate skin and provide deep moisture. These masks will not contain any harsh active ingredients such as glycolic acid and salicylic acid but may be formulated with antioxidants to leave skin looking radiant and glowing come morning time.
There are seven hydrating, detoxifying, radiance boosting, soothing, firming and lifting face masks within The Temple Spa range. They treat a range of skin concerns and come in an array of textures from cream to sheet meaning whatever your preference and skin need there will be a mask for you!
To help narrow down your options we will give a rundown of each mask and their key benefits, today we’ll look at 4 of our favourite masks for dry, dull, lacklustre or ageing complexions:
