IT’S TIME TO UP­DATE

Sunday Mail - Body and Soul - - FRONT PAGE -

Did you know Price­line sells a face mask ev­ery 20 sec­onds? Crazy, right? Whether you like the idea of a fast fa­cial or some at-home self-care, it’s safe to say the ma­nia around mask­ing isn’t go­ing away any time soon.

The num­ber of prod­ucts can be over­whelm­ing, es­pe­cially when try­ing to fig­ure out which mask is right for your skin. But ap­ply­ing a mask cor­rectly is just as im­por­tant and there are a few rules you should fol­low to get the best re­sults.

Be­fore you tear open the sa­chet or open the jar, prep your skin to ab­sorb all the ac­tive in­gre­di­ents by cleans­ing and ex­fo­li­at­ing.

Sim­i­larly, a light film that just sits on top of your skin won’t pen­e­trate deep into the lay­ers and, there­fore, won’t be as ef­fec­tive – work the prod­uct into your skin by mas­sag­ing it in with your fin­gers or a brush.

You can also tai­lor the kind of treat­ment to your skin type by us­ing tech­niques like lay­er­ing and multi-mask­ing. If you buy one beauty prod­uct this month, make it this lux­u­ri­ous oil-in-serum that works to ‘re­set’ your skin as you sleep. A com­bi­na­tion of mar­jo­ram and paracress plant ex­tracts help ac­ti­vate dor­mant gene-ex­pres­sion func­tions and re­lax mus­cle ten­sion, while pow­er­house an­tiox­i­dant Im­mortelle oil ex­tract works to cre­ate firmer, smoother skin.
