As I always say, it is imperative to choose a skin care product for your unique skin type and skin concern. This is certainly also true for facial masks. While choosing a skin care product, and this includes facial masks, one size fits all is the wrong approach.
There are four types of skin: normal, oily or acne-prone, dry, and combination. It is best to use a facial mask that is well suited to your skin type.
Choose for your skin type: While a facial mask for normal skin can be used by all skin types, a mask meant for oily skin, for instance, is not very advisable to be used by individuals with dry skin and so forth.
Look at the ingredients: The second important thing to be very mindful of the ingredient list of the mask. Avoid facial masks with artificial and chemical ingredients in them. A long ingredient list full of unfamiliar chemical names is not a good idea. Alcohol, parabens, artificial fragrance etc must be avoided to keep your skin safe from undesirable side effects like excessive dryness, itchiness, and inflammatory skin disorders.
Look for a mask that has natural added ingredients: If you have any questions about an ingredient, please feel free to fill out the personalized skin care advice form at the top of this page.
