It’s no secret that masks are a beauty must-have. We all know at least one friend who credit their amazing skin to masking regularly. In fact, actress Fan Bing Bing — whose known for her porcelain complexion and strict skincare regimen, reportedly goes through at least 600 sheets of facial masks every year (that’s one, or even two sheet masks a day)! After all, there’s nothing quite like that natural, dewy glow your skin boasts after using a mask. But, the 15-minute commitment of most facial masks means most people only mask once, or if not, twice or thrice a week.
Time constraints aside, you may think that slathering a bunch of masks onto your skin everyday might be too much for it. The key to masking daily lies in this: you should not apply the same mask everyday — the frequency must be based on the function of the mask. Facial masks are targeted treatments for your skin and should be used in rotation depending on your skin’s needs. It’s all about mixing things up with detoxifying, exfoliating, hydrating and soothing masks; it’s about the product your skin craves today.
