Everyone has a pretty consistent skin type, however certain factors can alter it throughout the day, week and season. Changes in climate, pollution in the air and stress are all factors that affect our skin. Understanding that the needs of a skin can vary depending on our environment is important so we can use the right products to help correct it.
I have oily skin and is this unpredictable Melbourne weather, my skin is seriously dehydrated. My nose is flaking and my forehead has dehydration lines. A skin concern that usually doesn’t affect me.
While, my Mum has mature, dry skin she can get an occasional pimple and breakout. When I ask her how she got to work and she says she’s missed the tram. My guess as to why she has broken out is because when there is no tram she walks along a main, busy, polluted road to get to work. Which leaves toxins in her skin causing breakouts.
One of the best ways to help adapt your skincare routine to the environmental changes and even those stressful lifestyle ones is through face masks.
Face masks contain a high concentration of active ingredients that allow them to act almost instantaneously. When our skin is faced with a specific need – for example, its dull or dehydrated with redness or even oily, face masks can provide a quick, visible solution to treat your skin concern.
The general rule for how long you should leave a face mask on is 15 to 20 minutes. Unless otherwise specified. Our new MyMask range achieves the desired results in only 5 minutes. Which is amazing for those nights you are rushing to beautify yourself before you head out.
