I stopped using mud masks a few years ago and I have no idea why. Not only does a mask help clean your skin but it’s relaxing and fun. Trying not to smile once it dries is difficult, which is why I stay away from mirrors.
- Exfoliate Before – For the mask to penetrate and draw out the impurities in your pores, it works best if you remove the dead layer of cells on your face.
- Moisturize After – Masks pull oil away from the skin, which is why if you’re like me and have dry skin you should 1. Apply a moisturizer after you wash the mask off, and 2. Limit masks to twice a week.
I did a little research this weekend and sure enough, mud masks are formulated for your skin type. The mud in my cabinet is probably 4 years old. No doubt, it’s not the best for my face. Oh well. I guess it’s another item to go on my make-over list (oh, the make-over is in September).
Everyday beauty means looking after my skin…and setting aside two nights a week to play in the mud is just the ticket.
