How Facial Masks Can Revolutionize Your Natural Skincare Routine

How Facial Masks Can Revolutionize Your Natural Skincare Routine
Following a regular skincare routine is important for maintaining healthy, balanced skin. Cleansing, toning and moisturizing are all vital components to daily skincare, but sometimes your skin needs a little extra, intermittent care to really glow. What's our secret weapon for better natural skincare? Facial masks!
Facial masks serve many purposes depending on the specific formula, but in general they are used for deep cleansing/detoxing, exfoliating and nourishing skin. Deep cleansing masks can help control and prevent those random breakouts or irritations caused by dirt, chemicals and oils that your regular cleanser might miss. Most masks are applied wet and allowed to dry. This drying action pulls out impurities from deep in the skin. Once dry, the mask is gently washed off, taking the impurities with it.
Refresh Facial Mask from Wild Rose
Masks made with nourishing ingredients will also transfer these benefits into your skin as they dry. Clay masks are especially beneficial for both cleansing and nourishing - clays are high in minerals to feed the skin while also acting as a magnet for dirt and toxins. The addition of specific herbs and minerals to the clay can really tailor the mask to your specific skin type and skincare goals.
Exfoliating masks include grainy ingredients to help scrub away dead skin and surface dirt. Our favorite natural exfoliants are ground herbs like flower petals, roots and leaves as they also help nourish and cleanse the skin.
Most skin types will benefit from a mask treatment once a week depending on the type of mask. Dry or sensitive skins will need to use a gentle mask if applying weekly, or switch to bi-monthly. Wild Rose has three clay-based masks suited for a variety of skin types.
Attunement Mask Natural Clay from Wild Rose
Attunement Balancing Mask for nourishing and balancing skin tone: This restorative mask combines mineral-rich Rhassoul Clay with gently exfoliating Rose Petals for a blissful spa experience. Enhanced with organic essential oils of Carrot, Rose Geranium, Pacific Northwest Lavender, Lemongrass and Helichrysum to restore and heal skin. Recommended for dry to normal sensitive and mature skin types.
Clarity Mask Natural Clay from Wild Rose
Clarity Purifying Mask for deep cleaning & preventing breakouts: This gently purifying mask combines detoxifying French Yellow Clay with exfoliating Witch Hazel Bark. Enhanced with organic essential oils of Tea Tree, Pacific Northwest Lavender, Lemon Peel, Carrot Seed and German Chamomile to cleanse bacteria and calm irritation and redness. Especially recommended for oily, sensitive and combination blemish-prone skin.
Refresh Mask Natural Clay from Wild Rose
Refresh Stimulating Mask for brightening & revitalizing dull skin: A rejuvenating blend of toxin-drawing French Green clay, stimulating Gunpowder Green Tea and gently exfoliating organic Jasmine Petals. Enhanced with organic essential oils of Peppermint, Lemon, Pacific Northwest Lavender and Carrot to invigorate and nourish skin. Recommended for tired, dull skin of all types. Not recommended for sensitive skin.
Many natural masks, including ours, come in a dry powder form that you mix at home. This eliminates the need for chemical preservatives and gives you more control over the consistency and feel of the mask. We recommend mixing in a 1:1 ratio of clay to water. This gives you a rather thin mask that will still allow your skin to breathe as the mask dries. If you prefer a thick, muddy mask, try adding less water.
Facial Mask Sampler Set
Not sure which to try? We put together this sweet little mask sampler set with all three masks - Attunement, Clarity and Refresh.
If you're looking to boost your skincare routine, try adding a natural mask to deep clean, revitalize and exfoliate your skin. Everyone needs special treatment sometimes, and your skin will thank you for the extra attention.
