Flawless Finish: How To Apply Face Mask

Face masks are meant to make your skin healthier and look better. They improve your skin's health and overall texture by targeting and treating all your skin concerns. Masks have a variety of active ingredients that work together to maintain, hydrate, clean, or treat your skin, depending on the type of mask you choose -  a Clay Mask or a Jelly Mask, each with its unique qualities.

Light Up Beauty offers the Beam Glacial Glow Mud  - a specially formulated clay mask that will leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed, and the Drench Hydrating Jelly Mask - an excellent hydrating solution that you can use for that instant hydrated feeling that makes your skin healthy, bright and plump. Regularly using face masks offers many benefits, such as pore cleaning, removing dirt and oil that causes acne breakouts, and refreshing dull skin.

They also hydrate and moisturize the skin, which is essential for achieving healthy skin. Masks also deal with skin issues like acne, ageing, or hyperpigmentation and even tone your skin over time. Incorporating masks into your skincare routine can also increase the benefits of other skincare products as they prep your skin to absorb other ingredients better.

Each type of mask offers many unique benefits, and it is essential to choose, how to apply face mask

Clay Masks vs Jelly Masks

Clay Masks:

Clay Masks and their unique benefits have been known for over 1400 years. They work wonders in removing dirt and dust from your skin. Applying a clay mask feels calm and soothing initially, but it is a little tight as it dries up. When the clay dries up, it pulls out all the dirt from the pores, giving you a thoroughly clean skin.

The Beam clay mask for face has a unique blend of ingredients, such as New Zealand glacial clay, RUM Complex (Rice, Urad, Masoor), Spirulina, aloe vera, Chlorophyll, and many more, working together in sync to detoxify, brighten, and calm your skin.

  • New Zealand Glacial Clay draws out impurities from skin pores, helps to balance oil production and leaves the skin feeling refreshed and renewed.
  • The RUM Complex is a unique blend of Rice, which tightens pores, Urad dal, which brightens from within, and Masoor dal, which gently exfoliates the skin.
  • Spirulina is rich in antioxidants that detoxify the skin, prevent acne, decrease inflammation, and even tone it.

The When and How of Face Masks:

Clay Masks are best suited for deep cleansing. They can be applied to remove excess oil, unclog pores, draw out impurities, and treat breakouts.

The Beam Glacial Glow Mud is perfect for dealing with acne and acne concerns. It shrinks pores and clears out all the impurities from your skin while keeping it hydrated, unlike other clay masks that dry up your skin and strip off your skin's natural oils. This is because of its unique New Zealand Glacial Clay, which is packed with collagen-boosting minerals.

Use it 2 to 3 times a week, according to your skin needs.

Jelly Masks are best for hydration and soothing the skin. You can apply a jelly mask when your skin needs a moisture boost, soothing, or calming effect. They are ideal for all skin types and work wonders, especially for dry, sensitive, or irritated skin. The Drench Hydrating Jelly Mask fits all these criteria. It instantly hydrates and calms your skin. You can use it whenever your skin feels dry or tight or needs a little coddling.

Use it 2-3 times a week or more as your skin desires.

Here's how to apply face mask:

  1. Cleanse: The first and most crucial step before using any skincare product is to clean your face. A clean face better absorbs products, while an unclean face with dirt or makeup might mix with the mask, further clog pores, and worsen your concerns.

  2. It is essential to clean your face before applying a face mask. You can thoroughly clean your face using Light Up Beauty's Anti acne face wash Dew Drop or the Green Juice face wash to get clean, prepped skin before wearing the face mask.

  3. Apply a thin layer of the face mask onto your face and neck, covering all the areas and avoiding eye contact.

  4. Leave for 10 minutes, then rinse with water while gently massaging your face and neck.

  5. After using either type of mask, follow up with your regular skincare routine to lock in hydration and reveal smoother, clearer skin.
