Best facial masks, masks to get that young glowing face from inside

Face masks make the difference between good and great skin. Try to use a facial mask at least three times a month, especially at the end of summer and the end of winter. When the seasons change your skin changes too. Facial masks can be like a much needed spring cleaning, it will exfoliate your skin and remove any buildup of sluggish cells. A face mask along with daily skin washes will keep your pores unclogged and help clear up blemishes. Face masks can work wonders for your skin and and can leave your skin feeling fresher and cleaner day after day.

With regular use of face masks, soon a new improved version of your face will greet you in the morning. A good idea is to wear a rehydrating sleep mask when you go to bed at night. Apply a facial mask when your skin is showing signs of stress or when you just need a pause from your busy life. Face masks create an illusion and make your skin look tauter, softer, smoother, and healthier.

Many homemade face masks can also make pores appear smaller and make your skin better able to absorb moisture. Don't forget that as female we especially want to take care of our skin and the neck is important too. There are many facial masks available so be sure to choose the mask that suits your skin type and pleases your senses.


Applying a mask is an art. But most of us don't know that. We just plaster it over our faces so violently that it gets into our hair, our clothes and onto our floor! Take a leaf out of our tip list on how to apply and shop for a mask that's ideal for your skin type.


. The first step is to equip your makeup kit with a flat wide brush. Avoid fingers!
. Be sure to knot your hair back, or gather it in a scarf or a headband. Your forehead should be completely visible and free of hair.
. Wear clothing that will leave the neck area open.
. Start applying the mask with your brush, using even strokes. Be careful to avoid the lips and the sensitive area around the eyes and include the neck area.
. Retain the mask for at least 20 minutes (unless a particular timeframe is
mentioned on the tube).
. To remove the mask, moisten with some water and rub it off the skin gently.
. In the case of peel-off masks, you will have to peel-off! Also rinse the face with plenty of water, incase the layer persists.
. Use circular strokes.


. For dry to normal skin use a nourishing mask.
. For oily skin use a mask with a clay base such as ZIRH's Clay Mask (From the company that provides stars and celebrities with their skincare products.)
. If you have blackheads, but no pimples and acne, go in for a grainy mask.
. If you have acne, no grainy masks, please!
. Peel-off masks are usually suited to all skin types (except if you have acne or a rash).
