Multimasking: Which zone of the face needs what?
Your forehead, nose and chin can be likened to the letter T. This is where the skin produces more sebum, which can block pores and lead to blemished skin. A toning peel-off mask and other variations containing kaolin, clay or charcoal, help to remove the excess sebum.
Compared to the ‘T-zone‘, your cheeks are drier because the skin produces far less protective sebum of its own. Masks with moisturising substances like grape seed oil, vitamin E and aloe vera help the skin to store moisture and can give your cheeks a healthy-looking glow.
The skin around the eyes is particularly delicate and sensitive. Smoothing face masks with Q10 or hyaluronic acid help to prevent fine lines. Masks with caffeine soothe puffiness and dark circles. Alternatively, you can also apply a thicker layer of your eye cream.
Pay attention to the application time
It’s important to take accurate note of the instructions for use. Excessive application time can cause skin irritation. Always apply the ‘T-zone‘ mask first, then wash it off and use leave-on masks for your cheeks and eyes. Tip: these versions are dabbed rather than rinsed off.
