how to make the most of your mask time

Giving yourself a facial mask can be one of the most important parts of your self-care routine. The right mask cares for your skin and, while it sets, you’re forced take some time to sit back and relax.

A charcoal mask offers added benefits, such as helping to draw out toxins like dirt, oil, and other impurities, minimize the appearance of pores, reduce inflammation, and leave skin wonderfully clean and fresh.

When selecting the right mask for you, be sure to look for one that contains safe, non toxic ingredients. Skip those with harsh chemicals, dyes, and fragrances that could cause immediate adverse reactions and even long-term health concerns.

A mask made with clay is great for oily skin and one with moisturizing ingredients is great for dry skin. Pure haven offers two masks, one for a limited time only, that offer the best of both worlds. Each one includes montmorillonite clay, which is absorbent, soothing, and known to help the body expel toxins. Our limited release lavender citrus charcoal mask features soothing lavender, energizing orange and mandarin peel oil, and antioxidant-rich cocoa seed butter. Our purifying charcoal mask with pre+probiotics contains nourishing aloe vera, hemp seed oil, and coconut fruit extract, as well as pre+probiotic ingredients to help feed, balance, and defend your skin from everyday stressors.

Whichever mask you choose, follow these simple steps to maximize your mask time:

Step 1: cleanse with a skin-nourishing cleanser that won’t dry or strip your skin

Step 2: exfoliate using a mild but effective exfoliator made with gentle wax scrubbing beans to softly smooth your face

Step 3: mask to clarify and detox your complexion

Step 4: tone with a refreshing toner to protect, soothe, and soften your skin

Step 5: moisturize using a lightweight, non-greasy moisturizer; add hyaluronic acid to maximize hydration and, if masking in the evening, a night serum to balance and revitalize your complexion as you sleep

Step 6: apply eye cream to lift, brighten, and smooth skin around your eyes

Repeat 1-2 times a week depending on your skin type — less for sensitive skin, more often for oily skin.
