When you imagine a woman at the spa, she probably has some sort of facial mask on, accented by cucumbers on her eyes and a towel on her head. Masks are a good way to replenish your skin during a facial or another spa treatment, but they can also have significant benefits when you incorporate one into your skin care regimen.
There are spa facial products that can help control almost any skin woe you are dealing with. Here are some of the best for your problems. Use these one to three times a week and leave on for 10 to 15 minutes before rinsing off and following up with your normal skin care products - cucumbers optional!
-Wrinkles. La Thérapie Masque Hydratant Anti Rides Hydrating Anti Wrinkle Mask for Face and Neck is one of the most intensely moisturizing masks, which is just what your skin needs to resist wrinkles. The boost of moisture from amino acids softens fine lines and wrinkles for a smooth complexion.
-Tired eyes. Because the skin around your eyes is thinner and there is less fat there than on the rest of your face, puffiness, dark circles and wrinkles in this area are common. To restore your youthful eyes, apply the Elemis Absolute Eye Mask. This eye-brightening mask firms the skin while reducing the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.
-Clogged pores. Blackheads, whiteheads and general dullness get zapped with the Bliss Steep Clean Pore Purifying Mask, which exfoliates to remove dead skin cells from the pores. This reduces breakouts while minimizing pores and brightening skin.
-Dull skin. After a late night out or major dehydration, your complexion may not be looking its brightest. A breath of fresh air comes in the form of the Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask, which also boosts the skin with vitamin C and other antioxidants for even more of a detox. Healthy, energized skin will appear brighter and healthier.
-Acne. Clogged pores and excess oil production call for a mask like La Thérapie Masque Vital Revitalizing Cleansing Mask for all skin types. This product's white clay, menthol, rosemary and thyme will refine your skin's texture while deeply cleansing and absorbing excess oil, resulting in smaller-looking pores and less acne.
