It can be a little overwhelming trying to decide which face masque is best for you and your skin type. Let me break it down and take the foot work out of it for you. One thing to keep in mind, ALL Éminence Organic Skincare products are anti-aging no matter what skin condition or concern you're treating.
Acne/breakout prone skin should choose from one of the following...
Acne Advanced Clarifying Masque: A clay based masque with encapsulated salicylic acid. This 2-in-1 masque and spot treatment absorbs oil and treats active breakouts.
Clear Skin Probiotic Masque: Cream based with cooling cucumber & yogurt to restore your skin's moisture barrier & eliminate the appearance of blemishes.
Hungarian Herbal Mud Treatment: Excellent for problem skin, this treatment detoxifies, open pores & eliminates toxins while increasing circulation. It includes cinnamon to fight off bacteria, ivy for vitamin C, sage to tone and heal, and paprika to stimulate and refresh skin. Think of this masque as a literal "flush" for the skin.
Eight Greens Photo Masque (HOT): A stimulating, gel based masque to normalize oily skin and prevent the appearance of breakouts. Phytoestrogens and antioxidants make this masque excellent for those who struggle with hormonal breakouts.
If you're starting to notice the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, one of the following masques will benefit your skin greatly when used consistently...
Firm Skin AcaÍ Masque: A unique gel/cream based masque packed full of phytonutrients, antioxidants and real berries (an excellent source of hyaluronic acid), this treatment plumps, smooths and regenerates the skin.
Strawberry Rhubarb Masque: Calm & plump your skin with this rich, creamy treatment. Shea butter, botanical hyaluronic acid & strawberries infuse the skin with vitamin c and antioxidants. This masque can also be used as a "sleep treatment". Use in lieu of or right on top of your nighttime moisturizer for an extra dose of hydration while you sleep.
Pink Grapefruit Vitality Masque: Hydrate, lift and tone with vitamin rich pink grapefruit in this honey based masque. Skin is left moisturized and nourished.
For all my sensitive skinned ladies and gentlemen, you'll want to reach for one of these calming treatments to soothe and reduce redness...
Calm Skin Arnica Masque: Calendula, arnica and ivy soothe and detoxify while reducing inflammation. Marigold and shea butter serve as the base for this creamy blend that will leave your skin feeling soft and toned without intensifying any sensitivities.
Seabuckthorn Balancing Masque: A balancing and conditioning treatment for all skin types, including sensitive. Made from biodynamic ingredients, this creamy face masque balances and conditions dry and sensitive skin without clogging pores.
Uneven skin types such as hyperpigmentation or dark spots from sun exposure or hormonal changes...
Bright Skin Masque: Natural Hydroquinone Alternative and Gigawhite™ help brighten the skin’s appearance and reduce the appearance of dark spots and the signs of aging. This face masque also makes a great nighttime sleep treatment thanks to it's creamy texture and key ingredients such as licorice root, stone crop and bearberry extract. To really target dark spots, I recommend sleeping in this masque a couple times per week.
Turmeric Energizing Treatment: This is an exfoliant, masque and stimulant all wrapped into one. Formulated with zeolite, citrine gemstones and turmeric to awaken & exfoliate for silky, luminous skin that glows.
Yam & Pumpkin Enzyme Peel 5%: Reduce the appearance of pigmentation, fine lines and sun damage with this exfoliating peel that removes dead skin cells and reveals a brighter and more radiant complexion.
Mature skin types who need deep hydration and moisture...
Bamboo Age Corrective Masque: An age repairing cream based masque with natural retinol alternative and swiss green apple stem cells to firm, tighten and lift almost immediately. Argan oil and she butter hydrate and replenish the skin's moisture barrier. This face masque also serves as an excellent "sleep treatment".
Lime Stimulating Masque: A stimulating masque with active ingredients to increase circulation resulting in a rosy glow that will make you look like you stepped directly out of the treatment room. Phytohormones and vitamins ensure this masque is great for all skin types, but especially aging and/or hormonal skin.
There's no right or wrong way to do a face masque, so don't overthink it. I love mixing and layering different masques depending on what skin issues I'm dealing with throughout the month. A couple of my favorite mixologies I like to do either at-home or in the treatment room are...
Lime Stimulating Masque + Clear Skin Probiotic Masque
Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Masque + Turmeric Energizing Treatment
Acne Advanced Clarifying Masque + Hungarian Herbal Mud Treatment
Play around with your skincare treatments and have fun with it. Aim to face masque at least once per week (hello #masquemonday), but ideally 2-3x per week is best. Consistency is key when it comes to seeing change in your skin.
