It’s easy to think that all face masks are good for us. They’re a treatment, right? How can a special treatment be bad? But depending on the weather, or our skin type, or even just our skin’s current #mood, the wrong mask could do us dirty.
If we have super dry skin, we are going to want to steer clear of harsh pulling clays or even exfoliating acids, which can be hard because we want to dissolve those dead skin flakes. However, we need to nurture our skin barrier and be kind and cognizant of our skin’s current condition before slapping on a face mask and considering it a favor.
On the other hand, if we have oily skin, we don’t want to get eight hours of REM under an emollient sleeping mask, or overdo it with hydrating facials. It’s all about balance and assessing what our skin’s needs are.
