Skincare experts for ages have raved about the benefits of face masks to boost a home skincare routine. In fact, it is believed that Cleopatra applied a dead sea mud face mask twice a week to cleanse her skin. Her skincare regime also included applying egg white to tighten pores and give her skin a youthful and radiant look.

Face masks, serums and moisturizers are all part of a critical skin care routine. But what sets a face mask apart is its ability to create a physical barrier that locks in beneficial ingredients, allowing the skin to absorb more efficiently. Designed to be used once or twice a week depending on one’s skin type and concerns. The right face masks can help to:

  • Hydrate and moisturize dry skin

  • Absorb excess oil and dirt

  • Decongest clogged pores

  • Minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

  • Enhance elasticity

  • Improve the appearance of breakouts

But with so many masks to choose from, the process to pick a mask that addresses your specific skin concerns could get overwhelming and time consuming. To simplify this for you, we have come up with this reference chart.

Mask type

Description & Benefits

Cream

The feel of a cream mask is more like a rich moisturizer. These face masks add moisture and nutrients back into the skin, helping it to remain plump and hydrated. These masks are ideal for Dry skin, Normal Skin and Mature skin.

 

Luminance’s Rosewater Hydration Mask includes premium and pure ingredients like Rosewater, Avocado, and Tamarind Seed extract, which boosts skin elasticity, provides hydration and improves overall smoothness. For some of our customers this mask has calmed their rosacea too. 

Kim’s Pro Tip : Use as a leave-in overnight mask just like a moisturizer. 

Clay

With its absorbent and exfoliating properties, clay masks are a miracle worker for acne-prone skin and naturally oily skin conditions. Clay addresses the root causes of acne, as well as treats ongoing symptoms such as excess oil and inflammation. 

 

Our Green Clay Clarifying Mask based on pristine Bentonite Clay absorbs excess oil, eliminates impurities and free radicals from the skin. The rich meadow foam oil reduces not just inflammation,  but also works with the other oils in the blend to provide a gentle deep pore cleansing. Tea Tree Essential Oil acts as a natural antibacterial and Matcha Tea encourages production of skin oils.

Kim’s Pro Tip : This mask is considered an active mask, it can should be used no more than every other week by folks with normal skin to acne prone skin for a deep cleanse. Leave mask in place for 5 to 10 minutes or until it begins to tighten and then rinse with clear water.

This mask is also appropriate for normal and combination skin but because it will naturally pull excess oils from your skin it should only be left on for no more than 5 minutes per application and should not be used more than once a month, followed immediately with a moisturizer.

And the best way to remove this mask is to apply it 10 minutes before you are ready to shower, and then hop in the shower and let the water stream rinse the mask away. As with all mask use follow with a moisturizer.

Exfoliating

Exfoliating masks are meant to remove spent non-functional skin cells from the surface of the skin. These masks work wonders on mature, and oily skin with enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles. The trick is to remove these spent cells without damaging the underlying skin.

 

Our non acidic and non abrasive Enzyme Exfoliating Mask with fruit enzymes is designed to gently and safely remove these spent and non functioning skin cells without distressing your underlying skin. So it naturally leaves your face glowing without any of the harmful action of scratchy abrasive or damaging acid based exfoliant masks..

Kim’s Pro Tip : Avoid the eye area as the fruit enzymes can sting the eyes a little bit. And the best way to remove this mask is to apply it 10 minutes before you are ready to shower, and then hop in the shower and let the water stream rinse the mask away.
