Indulging in a facial mask is one of life’s simple pleasures - it's the perfect excuse to have a little ‘me’ time and indulge yourself. Some skincare products are everyday maintenance heroes, whereas other products are weekly saviours that renew, replenish, and revive. Face masks fit into the second category, providing treatments or results beyond the reach of your daily routine. Where it be a cream mask or sheet masks, they are all targeted, concentrated, and efficacious.
Unlike daily-use moisturisers and serums, masks provide an intense shot of revitalising nutrients to kick-start your skin's hydration and renewal process. Some of the most effective masks include exfoliating and collagen-boosting ingredients such as glycolic acid, an AHA; and salicylic acid, a BHA. These ingredients, when combined with a mask, provide instant hydration and conditioning teamed with long-term anti-ageing benefits.
What type of mask is best for acne-prone, oily skin?
When you’re suffering from breakout and want to clear pores, masks that have a base of clay, mud and charcoal are ideal as these ingredients help to draw out impurities, absorb oils and detoxify skin. At Adore Beauty, we range a variety of anti-blemish, pore-refining and rescue masks from bands like Alpha-H, Dermalogica and Aesop.
How do I get the most out of a face mask?
The most important thing when using a facial mask it to know your skin concern. What are you trying to achieve? Do you want a brighter, more radiant complexion? Are you trying to banish breakouts? Want to fight those fine lines and wrinkles? All of these concerns can be addressed with the right face mask. The main objective of masks are that they are a concentrated, focused treatment. Your regular cleansing and moisturising routine suits your general skin type and condition. When you use a face mask, whether it comes in a jar or a sheet, the product addresses one particular complexion concern.

Fresh and hydrating
I haven’t noticed a reduction in clogged pores on its own, although if used with other products with high glycolic/salicylic acid concentrations it goes help to soften clogged pores.
