Why You Need To Incorporate Masks & Peels Into Your Skin Care Routine

Much of young, beautiful skin is about exfoliating and moisturizing. Once you exfoliate, you reveal, younger, newer skin beneath – that is what gives your skin that “glow”. The best way to maximize the products you already use (and the results) is to incorporate masks or peels into your routine.

Even if you use the best products, your skin needs to be exfoliated periodically so that fresh, new skin can surface.

  • Use a facial scrub every other day to exfoliate, after washing your face with a cleanser. (Read a Scrub Review)
  • Do a fruit acid peel or pure acid peel every other week. Peels are acids that you put on the skin to quickly exfoliate and eliminate dead skin cells. Read How to Make Facial Peels At Home.
  • Do a mask once a week, often one right after the other. If you do a mask, apply either a collagen mask or vitamin mask after you use the facial scrub.

Masks exfoliate, moisturize and deliver vitamins to your skin, so they’re well worth the extra effort. Once you exfoliate, all of your other anti-aging products will absorb and work better, making them more effective.

By using masks you are clearing away all the “debris” that is in the way of your current anti-aging products working to their full effectiveness. If all that skin is in the way, they cannot absorb cleanly and effectively. This is why you scrub or peel first (to get the skin off) and then apply vitamins and other anti-aging products after.

The bottom line: people with glowing, smooth skin do masks and peels. Give them a try and tell us what you think!
