Are you suffering from dry skin? Do you have problems with acne? Or do you simply want to hydrate your skin and give it more radiance? Fear not! There is not much good face masks cannot do.
While you may look temporarily terrifying, the end result will definitely be worth it. And with a wide range of face masks available in Aberdeen stores, we are certain you will find the right one for your skin type.
Due to increased temperatures and humidity levels in summer, pores tend to enlarge, which means that both dirt and oil can get easily trapped there and you may wake up to breakouts. So before you put on a face mask, it is important to use an exfoliating cleanser to remove dead skin cells from the surface as well as the pores.
If you have more spots in summer, you may want to try a detoxifying mud mask which has an anti-pollution treatment. This should prevent dirt from getting into your pores which causes acne to appear.
We recommend choosing a face mask with a creamy/ buttery texture for winter months to smooth your skin and ensure you don’t have any dry patches.
Try to find a mask which will keep your skin hydrated without leaving it oily or greasy. If you have a very sensitive skin, do not buy perfumed face masks – they can irritate your skin.
So pop a face mask on while you’re drinking your first cup of coffee and enjoy reading Society magazine! Whether you want to buy a pearl-infused mask, charcoal one or foamy one, check out our edit of top 10 face masks you can buy in the Granite City.
