Developing a solid skin care product regimen goes beyond your facial cleanser and facial moisturizer. Adding face masks into the mix can also be beneficial. Indulging in a face mask is one of our favorite activities—it can be really relaxing after a hectic day spent running around. And it’s safe to say there are plenty of different types of face masks to choose from, ranging from the charcoal mask to the sheet mask. No matter what type of face mask you prefer, knowing how, exactly, to use your face mask of choice can help make the experience more enjoyable. Here, nine face mask hacks to elevate your skin care routine. Here’s to treating yourself to an at-home spa day soon!

FACE MASK HACK #1: BRIGHTEN THE APPEARANCE OF YOUR SKIN WITH A CHARCOAL MASK

When it comes to using a face mask, finding one that address your skin concerns—dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and dark spots to name a few—is key. If you have dull skin in particular, consider using a charcoal mask. Over time, harsh environmental factors like pollution and debris can damage skin, leaving your complexion looking dull and tired. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask is enhanced with charcoal and can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and pollution and reduce the look of dull skin. Immediately, skin looks more radiant. Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, leave the face mask on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water.

FACE MASK HACK #2: TRY MULTI-MASKING

When it comes to face masks, sometimes using two—or three!—at the same time is better than limiting yourself to using just one. Multi-masking is a skin care trend that involves applying different face masks to different areas of your face at the same time. Try multi-masking with our charcoal mask, as well as the following four options, all of which are formulated with three types of clay (kaolin, montmorillonite, and Moroccan lava). Make sure to take a selfie of your multi-colored face once you’ve applied your face masks! To use any of the below face masks, apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, leave on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Face Mask: Daily wear and tear—makeup and improper care—can leave skin looking uneven with roughness and imperfections. When a facial cleanser isn’t enough to solve this problem, look to a face mask. Formulated with yuzu lemon extract, this face mask can help address your skin concerns for a complexion that looks smooth and even with clarified tone and improved texture.

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 and can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and gently cleanse stressed areas.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask: Day after day, dead skin cells can accumulate on the surface of your skin, leaving your complexion feeling rough. This face mask is enhanced with red algae extract and can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils, exfoliate dead skin cells, smooth the look of imperfections, and allow skin to breathe.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask: Day after day, impurities, dirt, makeup, and excess oils can build up on the skin, leaving your complexion looking overly oily. This face mask is enhanced with eucalyptus leaf extract and can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and reduce the look of excess shine.

FACE MASK HACK #3: INDULGE MORE THAN ONCE A WEEK

Don’t just use a face mask before a special event or during a girls’ night in—make it a more consistent part of your skin care routine! Our Pure-Clay Face Mask line should be used 2-3 times a week for best results.

FACE MASK HACK #4: EXFOLIATE MATURE, DULL SKIN FOR A GLOWING LOOK

As skin matures, it can end up looking dull. Enter the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Mask. Formulated with imperial peony, AHA, and a mineral exfoliant, this face mask sloughs away dull, dead skin cells from the surface of skin and instantly refreshes with a gelee texture. To use, apply the face mask to clean skin, leave it on for five minutes, then gently massage the face mask into skin using light, circular motions to help exfoliate. Rinse off with lukewarm water, and use twice a week for best results.

FACE MASK HACK #5: USE A FOUNDATION BRUSH TO APPLY IT

Instead of getting your hands messy or potentially transferring bacteria from your fingers to your face, put your face mask on using a clean foundation brush. In addition to helping make application more hygienic and less messy, the brush can help you apply an even layer to your skin.

FACE MASK HACK #6: SLEEP WITH ONE ON

Yep, it turns out that you can snooze with certain face masks on—no, not clay face masks. We’re talking about overnight face masks. The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power™ Overnight Face Mask is a luxurious, hydrating leave-on creamy face mask that forms a virtual protective mask to cradle skin. Immediately, skin feels hydrated and looks fresh. Every evening, apply the overnight face mask onto skin prior to sleep. Use it alone or as the last step in your skin care routine. Smooth it over your face, neck, and jawline until absorbed. Leave on overnight to see results.

FACE MASK HACK #7: KEEP SHEET MASKS COOL

Your fridge isn’t only a place for food—it can also be home to skin care products, too. Pop hydrating and calming sheet masks into the fridge before using. The coolness can make for a refreshing sensory experience and may also help temporarily reduce the look of puffiness. (Store These 3 Skin Care Products in the Fridge.)

FACE MASK HACK #8: SNIP SHEET MASKS

If you’ve ever worn a sheet mask, you’ve probably dealt with one that didn’t fit quite right. Don’t be afraid to cut your mask up and adjust it to fit your face. A snip here and there can be a total game changer.

FACE MASK HACK #9: ADD AN EYE OR LIP MASK

While you’re wearing your favorite face mask, why not extend the pampering to your eyes and your lips? Try soothing gel patches for under your eyes and hydrating sheets for your lips. Fun for the whole face!
