So, nowadays, people started to use facial masks more often than before and a lot of brands emerged to cover the demand for this products.

There are a lot of types of facial masks and every single type has a benefit and purpose.

Why Should I use Facial Masks?

Well, as I was saying many people do it right now and it is not for fashion or something.

But it is a really good treatment that you can do by yourself in your home, is not expensive and bring you many good results on your skin.

First of all, I have friends thinking that this is useless, well, maybe you have not find the perfect facial mask for you yet.

First, you need to know the type of skin you have, then focus on finding the right product for you.

Because no matter how many facial masks you use, if it is not the right one, it’s not going to work for you.

Also, if you have acne you probably need some special treatment to fight against it.

So, the first thing to do if you have acne is set an appointment with a dermatologist so he or she can tell you if your problem is due to your diet, stress, hereditary or for some other reasons.

Once you have identified the reasons, then you can start a treatment, which can be the prescribed by your dermatologist or a treatment based on facials masks and facial creams to acne.

Identify your Skin Type

Facial Masks

If you are considering start using facial masks, the first thing you should do is identify the results you want to achieve.

Do you want them for acne? Do you want to prevent aging? Do you wish a softer skin?

Once you decide what do you want a facial mask for, you are ready to look up among the tons of brands and options you have to pick a really good facial mask.

They can come in cream, sheets or even this stuff that turns into foam once you put it on your face, it is like magic.

Actually, this kind of mask was, I mean, still is a trend on the internet.

It consists of applying a kind of cream on your face, it is actually a facial mask, but then a couple of minutes pass and this grey stuff turns out into a layer of foam. It is pretty confusing and fun.

Well, returning to the topic, you need to identify your skin type first.

It can be the normal, oily or dry type, or maybe a combination of oily and dry, which means that your skin can be dry in some areas and oily in others.

Also, you need to take into account if your skin is young or if you need something to mature skins.

Identify if you have rosacea or sensitive skin or if you need a special treatment because you have sun damage skin type.

Using Facial Masks Provides a Deep Cleansing

When you think about all that black dots over your nose, you wish that there was a product to take them off.

Well, there indeed exist, and not just one, plenty of them are out there waiting for you to find them.

When you wash your face you may think that it is already clean, but there are more underneath of the first layers of the epidermis.

You can wash the dirt and oil off your face, but everyday pollutants from the environment that are on our face, don’t go away so easily.

So, a deep cleansing on your face can be done with a facial mask that will help to clean extra layers of your skin and also prevent clogged pores.

Plus, if you are a girl, your skin will absorb better the makeup you use.

To achieve a good deep cleaning, it’s not necessary to spend a lot of money on facial masks, actually, you can prepare one at home.

Some people do it with a few tablespoons of honey, yogurt or olive oil and lemon juice.

The “detoxing” process can be super easy and also, you can buy a facial scrub or opt for a homemade exfoliator.

Which is another type of facial mask and it is an essential part of any skincare routine.

Since the exfoliator can be a little rough with the skin because it removes all the dead cells, it is recommended just use it 2-3 times per week.

Personally, this is one of my favorite products because the results that offer on my face are pretty impressive.

Drugstore or Homemade Facial Masks?

Well, as a matter of fact, I have been using both and it worked for me.

But this can happen to everybody because we have different types of skin and what works for me because I have normal skin type, might not work for you is you have the oily type of skin.

So, first let’s focus on identifying our skin type and then we can make a choice.

Personally, I have tried both. You can try and see which is better for you.

Once you identify your skin type and your needs, then it is time to pick your facial masks, because once you try one probably you are going to have more than one.

Just remember not to abuse, facial masks are amazing but if you use them a lot your skin can suffer some consequences.

Believe me, using facial masks have changed my skin and I love the way it looks now.
