As we’re coming out of lockdown and our schedules are getting busier, we have to remember the little things that keeps our skin in line. Applying a face mask to your routine can be one of the most relaxing processes in your skin-care routine. There is just something about taking time out to self-care and allow the products to soak up and go to work on your skin. They’re also great if you multi-task so when doing other activities like answering those last emails or watching your favourite show, you’ll still feel as if you’re getting spa-like experience.
Today you’ll find that there are so many different masks on the market, you have options such as: clay masks, sheet masks, loose creams and many more, all that have a different role for a specific skin type. Before we get into masks, check my tell-all on MASKNE as you’ll find the instructions on the best way to prepare your skin before applying a mask.
By now you must know my love for the Rodial family, not just because we’ve partnered on many occasions but mainly because of the quality they provide as a brand. Their skincare line has been a staple in my cupboard for years. Their Dragon’s Blood line is something I’ve been using for years and more recently their ‘Pink Diamond Lifting Face Mask’, has been one my main go-to products.

Remember skin, hair and nails are all mirrors to what’s inside of us, so for example the diets we maintain and our water intake. If you’ve changed your diet and you’re still having trouble with MASKNE, inflammation, irritations and any other skin issues, please see a doctor or dermatologist.
