Facial Masks - Face Masks for Acne & More

What should I do before applying a face mask? "Always apply a facial mask to clean skin, so make sure to remove makeup, cleanse, and tone skin first. You can also apply a serum before your face mask for more of a nourishing, spa experience," says Anna De La Cruz, VP of Product Development. What does refining mean in a face mask? "Refining masks help draw out impurities and refine the look of skin's surface including texture and pores. They treat congestion and breakouts by exfoliating and detoxifying, and most refining masks contain detoxifying ingredients like charcoal, clays, and hydroxy acids," says Anna De La Cruz, VP of Product Development. What does a mineral mask do? "A mineral mask contains nourishing skin-loving, minerals that when used as a more concentrated treatment like a mask, will get to work on a deeper level. Mineral masks have multiple benefits from detoxing to hydrating skin," says Anna De La Cruz, VP of Product Development.

What do hydrating face masks do?

"Often containing humectant—hydrating, ingredients like hyaluronic acid, cucumber, sodium pca, or glycerin, hydrating face masks help replenish moisture in the skin to calm and quench dry and dehydrated complexions instantly," says Anna De La Cruz, VP of Product Development.

What comes first face mask or serum?

"You can actually apply serums before AND after masks. If you want to address a specific concern, apply treatment serums before your face mask skincare. Once removed, you can apply another serum such as hyaluronic acid before your moisturizer," says Anna De La Cruz, VP of Product Development.

Should you use facial mask daily?

"Most face masks are not designed to be applied daily. Masking one to three times per week and moisturizing afterwards is the best way to benefit skin with masks, while also giving it the downtime it needs in between treatments," says Anna De La Cruz, VP of Product Development.

Clay jojoba oil facial mask for lesioned skin and mild acne--results of a prospective, observational pilot study

Background: External application of clay facial masks is a cosmetic procedure generally used to reduce skin lesions and to improve overall skin condition.

Objective: Collecting pilot data about self-treatment with clay jojoba oil masks on participants with acne-prone, lesioned skin and acne.

Methods: Open, prospective, observational pilot study: Participants received written information, instructions, and questionnaires without direct contact with the study physician. For 6 weeks, they applied the masks 2-3 times per week. The primary outcome is the difference of skin lesions: baseline vs. after 6 weeks.

Results: 194 participants (192 female, 2 male, mean age (± SE) (32.3 ± 0.7 years) returned questionnaires and diaries. 133 of these participants returned complete and precise lesion counts (per-protocol (PP) collective). A 54% mean reduction in total lesion count was observed after 6 weeks of treatment with clay facial mask. Both inflammatory and non-inflammatory skin lesions were reduced significantly after treatment compared to baseline: Median counts (MC) of pustules per affected participant were reduced from 7.0 ± 0.9 to 3.0 ± 0.5 (mean individual reduction (MIR) = 49.4%), the MC of the papules from 3.5 ± 2.2 to 1.0 ± 0.4 (MIR = 57.3%), the MC of cysts from 2.0 ± 0.8 to 0.5 ± 0.4 (MIR = 68.6%) and the MC of comedones from 26.5 ± 6.3 to 16.0 ± 4.0 (MIR = 39.1%). DLQI-average score decreased from 5.0 ± 4.5 (mean ± SE) before to 2.1 ± 2.8 after treatment.

Conclusions: The present study gives preliminary evidence that healing clay jojoba oil facial masks can be effective treatment for lesioned skin and mild acne vulgaris.
