Spring has officially sprung! And along with saying goodbye to the cold and dreary weather, it’s also time to get to work on minimizing the appearance of dull winter skin. What’s the best way to do that, though? Well, it’s time to add a charcoal mask to your weekly skin care routine! Spring is the season of renewal, so now’s the perfect time to make some changes to your beauty regimen in an effort to reveal a brighter-looking complexion. Keep reading to learn why you should add this type of face mask to your skin care routine along with tips for multi-masking.
In case you were curious about why you should add a charcoal mask to your skin care routine once the season changes, we have your answer. The dry air of winter can leave skin looking dull. With continued use over time, a charcoal mask can help give skin a more radiant look as well purify skin of impurities on the surface. Sweet!
Over time, harsh environmental factors like pollution and debris can damage skin, leaving your complexion looking dull and tired. Oftentimes, a facial cleanser isn’t enough to solve this problem. That’s where the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Detox & Brighten Face Mask comes in. It’s formulated with three different clays—kaolin, montmorillonite, and Moroccan lava—and infused with charcoal. The face mask can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and pollution; reduce the look of dull skin and increase luminosity; and allow skin to breathe. Plus, the face mask is a chic black shade!
Before slathering this face mask onto your complexion, listen up: You should apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off. Use the charcoal mask three times a week for best results.
What to do before you apply your charcoal mask: Pre-face mask application, cleanse your skin to help remove traces of dirt, oil, and makeup. You can use a gentle, no-rinse cleansing option like micellar water. The L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser Waterproof – All Skin Types intensely purifies, the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water for Normal to Oily Skin purifies and mattifies, and the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water for Normal to Dry Skin hydrates and soothes. Saturate a cotton pad with the micellar water of your choice, then wipe the pad across your face.
What to do after you remove your charcoal mask: After you’ve rinsed the face mask off, follow up with a moisturizer, like the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, or L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin. Each of these moisturizers is formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration.
Does it seem like one face mask just isn’t enough for your skin? Consider adopting a multi-masking routine. Multi-masking involves applying different face masks to different areas on your face, depending on what each section of skin needs. In addition to our charcoal mask, here are four other face masks you can try as part of your multi-masking ritual, all of which are formulated with three different clays.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Mattify & Purify Face Mask: Day after day, impurities, dirt, makeup, and excess oils can build up, leaving your complexion looking overly oily. This face mask is enhanced with eucalyptus leaf extract to help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and reduce the look of excess shine.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask: Dead skin cells can accumulate on the surface of your skin day after day, leaving it feeling rough. This face mask is enhanced with red algae extract to help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and exfoliate dead skin cells from the surface.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask: Over time, harsh cleansing can be drying and sensitizing, leaving skin feeling uncomfortable. As a result, skin needs cleaning that is effective yet gentle. This face mask is enhanced with seaweed to help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils, reduce the look of imperfections, and gently cleanse stressed areas.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Face Mask: Daily wear and tear—from makeup and improper care—can leave skin uneven with roughness and imperfections. Often times in these cases a facial cleanser isn’t enough to solve the problem. This face mask is enhanced with yuzu lemon extract to help draw out the buildup of dirt, impurities, and oils and clarify tone.
Use each of your chosen face masks three times a week for best results.
