After exfoliation it is always important to follow with a mask. My mask of choice is the Age Smart Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque. When writing this post I was actually surprised to discover that I hadn't actually shared this mask on my blog before. Especially considering I am on my third tube already.
The main aim of a mask is to give your skin an intensive treatment to help treat your skin concerns. When choosing a mask it is best to think about what you are trying to treat or improve - be it hydration, anti ageing, acne, pigmentation, etc. Do your research online and check your budget. I try to buy the most effective product at a price point that is acceptable to me. I know that a face mask will last me a few months so I tend to spend more on this type of product. I know my skin is ageing so that is one thing I treat but I also battle with dehydration so I have tried a few masks to help with it.
To supplement my skin care routine, I use some sheet masks to help distribute costs but also to treat my various skin concerns. So on days where I feel particularly dehydrated, I'll use a hydrating sheet mask (read how I use them here) or the Aquamemory moisture replenishing face mask from Gatineau (click here to read that review) but at least once a week I do an intensive treatment using a good quality multi-purpose face mask, like the one I have covered in this post.
