5 Reasons to Use a Mask to Relax

One of my favorite things to do once a week is a mask. Masks are easy to use, relaxing and provide great results.

Not only are they relaxing but the benefits to the skin are amazing. If you're the instant gratification type like me, then you're going to love the mask.

Why use a mask?

Face masks are an excellent solution to skin care concerns. Our mask is made with clay, organic gluten free oats, organic rose hips, organic hibiscus, papaya enzymes, prickly pear, chamomile and bee pollen.  It helps to hydrate the skin, remove excess oils, and improve the appearance of your pores. It also helps to pull out impurities.

The best part is you get to pamper yourself right in your own home.


5 Reasons to Use a Mask to Relax



Using a face mask is refreshing and luxurious. To benefit fully, set aside some “me” time that is free of distractions. Draw a hot bath (add in an herbal bath Infusion by Prickly Pear for a true spa experience), light some candles and apply your mask. Your senses will be delighted as the cool wet mask covers your skin and dries crisp. Enjoy the earthy smell of clay and plant as your body and mind relax. 


Deep cleansing

You may think that daily face cleansing is enough for your skin, but a quality face mask not only cleans the top layer of your skin, it also pulls impurities from the under layers of the epidermis. You may notice after a mask that your pores seem larger. You may also experience mild "breakout". This is referred to as a detox as impurities, oil, dirt, and makeup are pulled from your skin. Masks are important at providing this deeper clean. Weekly masking will truly improve your complexion and the health of your skin. 


Unclog pores

Masking with clay helps to remove dirt and absorb excess oils. It also helps to remove the build-up of dead skin cells that accumulate on your skin. When you remove all the debris from the surface of your  skin, your pores are left free and clear of bacteria and pore clogging gunk. Clogged pores are the culprit of unsightly breakouts and uneven skin.  Regular face masks help to keep your skin surface clean and your pores unclogged. What are you waiting for?!? Go get your mask on!


Glowing skin

Looking for the glow but seeing dull uneven skin? You need this mask! The process of the mask drying on your skin, along with the removal of the mask, causes an expansion in the blood vessels in your skin. It also acts as an exfoliant. Lending itself to an overall improvement in skin tone and texture. Weekly masking Results in softer-feeling and smoother-looking skin. You’ll also notice a radiant glow and more refreshed appearance as your skin is purged of waste. So, relax, feel the tingle, breathe in the earthy aroma, and enjoy your skin transformation.


Helps your overall regimen

Masking helps all of your other skin care products work more efficiently. If you want your day cream, Toner and night serums to be absorbed by your skin quicker and deeper, then a face mask is a must. By masking on a regular basis, you can ensure that your toning, hydrating and protecting products will all perform better, providing you with the results you’re looking to achieve at a much faster pace.


Top Tips for a Happy Face Mask Experience

Beauty Tip 1: Use a small makeup brush to apply your mask. Be sure to avoid the eye area as this will dehydrate the delicate skin around the eyes. 

Beauty Tip 2: Your face mask is ready to come off once it has dried. To remove, simply place a warm, wet washcloth over your face. Gently press the cloth to your skin to soften the mask. This tip will make the rinsing off process much easier and gentler for your skin. Once the mask is soft, gently wipe with cloth. Follow with a cool rinse and Toner.
