A little known fact is that not every face mask is for everyone! Bet you didn’t know that did you? This piece of valuable info could be just what you need to get the clear complexion you’ve always craved.
We all know that there is a huge mass of choice when it comes to beauty brands and that makes it so difficult when looking for a specific type of product.
Finding right face mask can be a nightmare! Do you go for a peel, a clay mask, a firming one, a sheet mask or maybe one of those overnight facial masks that seem to have sprung up everywhere lately? On top of that, the majority are quite pricey so it’s very annoying when you shell out a small fortune, only to find that the mask doesn’t give you the results you thought it would!
The good news is I am here to help! As a makeup blogger I’ve done my research and have the put together a handy little guide on to how to choose a mask to suit your skin type!
First things first, start your beautifying route with this face mask primer from Origins. This will really help to make sure you maximise the results of your face mask and it completely preps the skin ready for the magic to happen!
Hydrating and exfoliating masks are your saviour! Try a peel or a sleeping/overnight mask for the added hydration that an overnight surge brings. You will definitely notice the difference.
Go organic and hydrating. This will lower the risk of any scary side effects and will also help sooth your sensitive skin. Try and keep your whole skin regime o’naturale!
Radiance and peels are for you! You can easily bring some life to your skin with either of these types of mask. I also find that the most common type of mask is a radiance mask so you should really have your pick!
You need some active ingredients in your face masks! Again clay and mud are perfect fro you but try a tea tree mask to help combat your problem skin. It will fight against any new spots and heal the ones that you already have much quicker!
Deep cleansing masks such as clay and mud masks are perfect for oily skin as they draw out impurities like blackheads and dirt and help to remove any excess oils. Try a Light or gel type moisturiser afterwards so that you don’t overwrite the masks hard work!
Lucky you, this means that you get to experiment with a multitude of masks as you can use the clay and mud masks on your T zone areas (i.e. forehead, and nose) whilst using peels and hydrating masks on the rest of your face for glowing results.

Hydration, Hydration, Hydration! Once you reach 25 your skin stops producing as much oil and your natural sun protection decreases. You need moisture to keep those fine lines and wrinkles under wraps. Try a firming mask to give you a radiant youthful refresh!
