FACE MASK GUIDE

FYI: This post is sponsored by Avatara Skin. All opinions are honest and my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that keep SHESELLE going!

As we age, our skin inevitability experiences everything from discoloration, wrinkles, dryness, to unwelcome breakouts. This, in combination with other major factors such as fatigue, sun damage, alcohol, and stress can all help accelerate the development of these major skin issues. Although this is a normal part of life, there are preventable measures to keep your skin feeling healthier and visibly younger! Avatara carries eight serum-infused sheet masks that specialize in treating pretty much every problem area on your face. To show you just how versatile their masks are, I’ve come up with 8 unique scenarios and paired them with the perfect face mask to use! All you need is 10-20 minutes and you’ll be left with a glowing complexion. Not sure where to start? Keep reading and your skin will thank you!

HANGOVER: Plump Up Face Mask

Did you party a little too hard last night?! The morning after can be rough and chances are, you’re left with puffiness, dark circles, and incredibly dehydrated skin. The Plump Up Face Mask is perfect for reducing any puffiness around the eyes, provides much needed hydration, and ultimately restores tired looking skin!

BIRTHDAY TREAT: LIGHT UP FACE MASK

Treat your self to a little extra pampering on your special day! As you reach another year older, it’s even more important to take care of your skin. One of the many results of aging is skin discoloration. To brighten up those dark areas and achieve younger-looking skin, use the Light Up Face Mask!

TIME OF MONTH: CLEAR OUT FACE MASK

Before the start of a woman’s period, the skin experiences greater oil production due to increased hormone levels. This in turn can lead to clogged pores and eventual breakouts! Since your skin is generally more sensitive during this time, you’ll want to use beauty products that are gentle on your skin. The Clear Out Face Mask is a perfect exfoliant for managing oily skin and keeping those pores clean to keep breakouts at bay.

POST WORK-OUT: SHAPE UP FACE MASK

Although sagging is a major result of aging, any kind of intense exercise like running can also be a factor (which is due to the collagen in your skin being torn apart). Luckily, the Shape Up Face Mask can help restore elasticity in your skin!

DATE NIGHT: EVEN OUT FACE MASK

Anyone with large pores knows how challenging make-up application can be – especially when dealing with foundation! Whip out the Even Out Face Mask to shrink your pores and create a smoother base for your skin the next time you get dolled up!

FESTIVAL RECOVERY: FILL IT UP FACE MASK

Festival season is upon us and after multiple long weekends under the hot desert sun, your skin will more than likely need a major detox. Did you know that over exposure to the sun (especially without sunscreen) can lead to fine lines and wrinkles? Counteract the sun’s harmful UV damage by applying the Fill It Up Face Mask, which will leave you with softer skin and a younger appearance. You can also place your sheet mask in the fridge prior to application for an additional soothing treat!

TRAVEL PREP: DRINK UP FACE MASK

With all the environmental changes you experience while traveling, it’s important to step up your skin care routine! Sink moisture back into your skin by applying a deeply hydrating mask mid-flight – the cabin air is incredibly drying! The Drink Up Face Mask helps to rejuvenate dry skin and will give you that much needed glow once you land!

STRESSFUL DAY: CHILL OUT FACE MASK

When our schedule is jam-packed with things to do, we often neglect our skincare routine, leaving our skin feeling incredibly dull. During stressful times like these, take a moment to nourish your face with the Chill Out Face Mask for radiant looking skin!

5 ADDITIONAL TIPS

  • TEST IT: Avatara’s sheet masks are gentle but like with all skin care products during your first use, I recommend applying a tiny amount of the serum to the back of your hand to test your skin’s sensitivity to the product.
  • USE IT ALL: After application, allow the serum to soak up on your skin and use any excess by massaging into other areas of your body such as your hands and neck!
  • MIX + MATCH: If you have more than one skin issue that you’re facing, feel free to mix and match! That’s the beauty of Avatara’s face masks – they have a solution for everything.
  • DEVELOP GOOD HABITS: On top of maintaining a good skin care routine, remember to keep yourself hydrated by drinking water on a daily basis and getting some beauty rest!
  • TAKE A QUIZ: Still need some guidance? Avatara has a Skin Quiz that you can take that will match you with the best face mask to use to aid any specific skin concerns you may have.

Phew, that was a long list but I hope you found it helpful! The next time you find yourself in any one of these situations, make sure to break out any of these face masks! You can learn more about Avatara’s magical face masks here and/or you can find them at your local Target!
