Do you use face masks? Many mature women include regular face mask applications in their skincare routines. Facial masks are formulated with a variety of ingredients and some are better targeted for mature and aging skin.
Here are our 7 favourite facial masks for women over 50:
Let’s face it, our skincare needs often change as our skin gets older. There is no escaping it, and it’s always best to embrace our changing skin. But there are things you can do to help retain moisture and add plumpness to your skin because dry skin can be uncomfortable. Face masks can help do just that.
Not all facial masks are created equal. Certain ingredients should be favored over others for our beautiful mature skin. Here is a short list of ingredients that you should look for when shopping for a face mask product.
Face masks come in creams, gels, or clays and are meant to be left on for a period of time or even overnight. They are also offered in easy-to-use sheets that are embedded with the product and that you adjust to your face.
Face masks are applied to clean dry skin. Choose a face mask that suits your particular needs, skin type, and lifestyle. Look for a hydrating face mask if you have dry skin in the winter or a mask that has anti-inflammatory properties if you have redness or irritation.
Apply the face mask on your face (and neck if you wish) and leave it on for the recommended time to achieve the best results. Simply follow the instructions that come with the product.
You can apply face masks about 1 or 2 times a week.
