Fall Masking Tips

Although the weather has been a bit up and down recently, fall is 100% on its way and as temperature’s drop, your skin is going to see some changes. It’s time to add a selection of the best skin care products into your face care kit to help your skin transition into fall. Face masks should be staples in your weekly skin care regime and you should mask at least twice a week as the seasons change.

Skin care in fall should be all about dry skin exfoliation, moisturizing and gentle cleansing. The sudden decrease in humidity makes the air dry and can quickly pull the moisture out of your skin. That gets even worse as indoor heat goes on which causes moisture levels to drop even further. As a result, your skin and lips become dry (even if you don’t immediately notice it) and with that the dewiness and glow of summer quickly disappears. In addition, dry and dead skin cells often pile up during summer, which puts you at risk for breakouts and a tired, dull look.

Using a face mask at least twice a week can help to quickly turn your tired face into a clear and smooth complexion. What your skin needs are the best face masks to give your skin exactly what it needs this season. To help you pick the right masks, here are our must-have masking tips for fall:

1. Boost hydration levels – What you don’t want in fall (or any season) is dry skin because it makes your skin dull, your make-up cakey, and it accelerates your skin’s aging process. Our Deep Hydration Face Mask is the best face mask for dry skin! You will immediately notice an increase of hydration that helps bring your skin to life and the mask will help erase any dry spots or flakes you might have.

One of our favorite tips with this mask is to use it overnight as a deeply hydrating sleep mask. All you have to do is apply mask as you normally would, let it sit for 10 minutes before wiping off the excess product. Leave a thin layer on overnight and let the moisturizing mask do its work while you sleep.

2. Exfoliate twice a week – You NEED to exfoliate your face on a regular basis for a radiant and hydrated complexion and to avoid clogged pores, which can result in unwanted break-outs. Our Exfoliating Face Mask should be a staple in your fall skincare routine as it will exfoliate dry skin bits and flakes away that have built up over the summer and reveal a radiant complexion while helping prevent dirt & bacteria from being trapped in your pores.

3.  Turn towards more gentle cleansers – With colder weather comes dryness, and with dryness can come skin sensitivity, which means you need to be careful when choosing the right cleansing face mask for clear skin. Do NOT pick a mask that claims to shrink your pores but will also strips your skin of moisture to make it feel tight and deprived. Find balance by using a gentle cleanser and gentle face masks. Our Deep Cleansing Face Mask is the best face mask for clear skin when your skin is dry and sensitive. It will give you a deep cleanse while at the same time giving your skin a dose of healthy moisture and soothing benefits.
