How to Select the Best Face Mask and Cleanser for Your Face
With how versatile they are, face masks and cleansers are nothing short of a beauty hack. Is your best friend's wedding coming up? Put on that face mask for glowing skin. Spent an entire weekend out riding your bike in dust and pollution? Pick up a cleanser and face mask that pulls out dead skin cells. Skin feeling too sticky? Wash your face and apply a face mask that will hydrate your skin.
How to Select the Face Mask or Cleanser that Works for You
Whether it’s because of the fancy glitter packaging or because you saw your favorite celebrity using one on Instagram, it's important to know that not every mask or cleanser will work. And even if it has worked for a friend or someone else you know, it still might not work for you. Some products might even cause breakouts and other skin problems. So how do you find one that will work for you?
When it comes to selecting the right product for your skin, your skin type matters, and so do your skin concerns.
Face Mask or Cleanser for Normal Skin
If you have normal skin and no particular skin problems, you can pretty much try any face mask or cleanser that isn't specifically for extremely dry or oily skin.
Face Mask or Cleanser for Dry Skin
Hydration is the keyword for dry skin. Although, maybe it's the keyword for all skin types! If you just treat yourself to a tall glass of water every now and then, religiously use a daily moisturizer and slap on a hydrating face mask 1-2 times a week, you'll be good to go.
Face Mask or Cleanser for Oily or Acne-Prone Skin
With oily skin, ingredients like multani mitti and besan may be better for you. You'll need something that can keep the excessive sebum production under control and that can prevent the buildup of acne. Other useful face mask ingredients for oily skin include aloe vera, turmeric, rose water, oatmeal, honey, tea tree oil, gram flour, bentonite clay, and yogurt. But the best thing for your face might be clay!
Face Mask or Cleanser for Combination Skin
For some people, their nose, forehead, and chin (T-zone) may be oily, and the rest of the face may be dry. If you've got combination skin, then you need the right mix of oil control and light hydration. A mildly exfoliating face mask, gel-based mask, or a clay mask would be your best bet.
Face Mask or Cleanser for Sensitive Skin
With sensitive skin, so much as exposure to heat, hot water, or laundry detergents can irritate your skin, so you certainly don't want to buy an expensive beauty product that will only end up triggering it. Whether expensive or cheap, you need a cleanser and face mask that will soothe your skin along with whatever it is supposed to be doing. It won't turn your skin all red. The best ingredients for this are rose water, aloe vera, calendula, and thermal water.
Face Mask or Cleanser for Dull Skin
If your skin just lacks that shine, using a peppermint mask or a Kaolin clay cleanser might work wonders for you and bring out that glow.
Together, face masks and cleansers help you keep your skin healthy and glowing. But what if we told you you could find both in just one product? Introducing Kaura Face Masks with cleansing properties to get you that perfect calm, matte-looking skin.
Kaura Golden Glow 3 in 1 Facial Cleanser
With the powers of Kaolin clay, turmeric oil, fair trade Sariva, rice scrubs, and sandalwood essential oil, this cleanser will soothe the skin, remove dirt and oil from your pores, absorb impurities from the skin, eliminate blemishes and rashes, hydrate the skin, and brighten up your complexion. And it smells like summer dipped in sandalwood and turmeric latte on the side!
Kaura Glow Mask - French pink clay + Peppermint
From calming inflammation and improving skin tone to exfoliating and brightening dull skin, pink clay does it all. This glow mask also has organic avocado oil, organic sweet almond oil, organic honey, rose hydrosol, and peppermint essential oil. This amazing mask will cleanse you cheek to cheek and make you glow like a newborn baby. It will hydrate, nourish, and tone your face.
Kaura Soothe Mask (French green clay + Spirulina)
French green clay and spirulina are super-ingredients in their own right. While the former soaks up excess oil, unclogs pores, fights acne, balances pH, pulls out toxins, exfoliates, and soothes skin, the latter is anti-ageing, produces collagen, tightens skin, eliminates toxins, treats acne, psoriasis and eczema, and is a superfood! The active ingredients in this mask improve circulation, and the aquatic and land botanicals like spirulina, kelp, alfalfa, and burdock root are rich in skin-loving vitamins and minerals.
