Quite a bit of the time I find my customers telling me that they are doing a regular skin care regime, yet they are not getting the results that they want to get. Something beneficial that I recommend for them to try is adding a facial mask as a great addition to their regular regime. One reason I love facial masks is because there is a facial mask for all skin types and for most concerns. The nice thing about this additional step is that you do not have to do it everyday. Used once to twice weekly, using a mask you can achieve pore tightening, brightening, exfoliating, hydrating, anti aging and purifying.  Face masks however are not a “one size fits all” product. The key is to know our skin type and buy according to it.

Normal skin 
If you are luck to have no breakouts, oiliness or dryness, you can try many different masks. You can try ones for radiance, deep cleansing, hydration or even try one for sensitive skin. 
Oily/combination skin
Usually this skin type responds well to clay masks or ones that detoxify. Clay is awesome to remove excess oil, deeply cleanse the pores and helping with black heads. They are great for detoxifying the skin yet not leaving them feel dry.
TRY: PurMinerals Mineral Mudd facial mask or Clarins Pure and Radiant Mask
Dry skin
Someone with a dry skin will want the opposite from an oily skin. They want moisture and to feel comfortable. A moisture mask is like drink of fresh water for your skin. It will leave the skin feeling plump and rejuvenated. A tip for moisture masks is to make sure to rub them in after the 10 minutes or to tissue them off. NEVER wash off, if you do you wash off the moisture.
TRY: Avene soothing moisture mask or Clarins HydraQuench moisture mask
Dull Skin
An exfoliating or radiance mask will help boost the radiance and add a glow to the skin. Exfoliating masks will help to remove dead skin cells of the skin.
TRY: Neostrata smoothing cleansing mask or Biotherm Flash recharge SOS anti fatigue mask

Mature skin
A mask for mature skin can offer anti aging benefits such as anti wrinkle and firming.
TRY: Clarins Extra-Firming face mask or Neostrata exfoliating firming mask

Using a mask for whitening or brightening can help with skin lightening, scarring or age spots. Usually these masks use exfoliating ingredients.
TRY: Shiseido Intensive brightening mask.

TiP: Use an exfoliator or scrub before a mask to allow the mask to work on new skin instead of dead skin cells.
