We are going to discuss Masques (or Masks) as part of our Great Skincare Regime series of articles on their own. This is due to the fact that some masques may fall into the Preparatory stage and some can be discussed in the Nourishing and Repairing stage. Some masques are used to deep cleanse the skin whilst others will nourish and restore the skin.
It is very important with masques to ensure that they are used correctly, in terms of application, and are used on the correct areas of the face and at the correct frequency. They are an integral part of a Great Skincare Regime due to the type of ingredients they use and the amount of time they spend on the skin.
Below we have discussed each of the different Dermalogica Masques independently.
The Dermalogica Cooling Masque is part of the Clear Start range of products which is designed for teenagers and younger people with acne or breakouts. Unusually for Dermalogica it is designed to be used 5 times a week and should be applied to the face, left on for 7-10 minutes and then removed with water.
The Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque is part of the AGE Smart range and is designed to be used by those with drier and prematurely ageing skin. It should be used 1-2 times a week and can even be left on overnight if you don’t mind orange pillow cases.
The Dermalogica Sebum Clearing Masque is part of the MediBac Clearing range and is designed to be used by those with acne or breakout prone skin. It is a deep cleansing and purifying Masque that should be used 1-2 times a week.
The Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque is ideal for use by those with skin which is normal or normal to dry and should be used 1-2 times a week. It is a very popular masque that rehydrates and calms skin whilst helping to deal with fine lines.
The Dermalogica Skin Refining Masque is ideal for use by those with skin which is normal or normal to oily and should be used 1-2 times a week. It will help to remove any excess oils whilst refining and cleaning pores without drying your skin.
Masques are a critical element to a Great Skincare Regime and if you have the time to use one once or twice per week the benefits and results will be very much worth it.
