Facial Masks in My Skin Care Routine

Leave a comment

Facial steaming has been beneficial for my skin. My pores are cleaner and clearer. My skin feels oh-so-healthy afterwards! After I do a facial steam, I use a face mask. Here’s a list of face masks that I have. I’m sure they’ve been mentioned at one point or another. But here they are…

They are not in any particular order. Here are my thoughts on them.

1. Bliss Mighty Marshmallow Bright & Radiant Whipped Mask

I’ve been using Bliss Mighty Marshmallow Mask just because I have it. I have 2 jars left. I’m not too crazy about this face mask. It doesn’t brighten the skin at all even though it’s called a ‘Bright & Radiant Whipped Mask’. It’s good at moisturizing the skin when it’s on the skin. Afterwards, the hydration doesn’t last. You’re better off using a moisturizer that’s left on the skin. I wouldn’t buy it again. Save your money.

2. elf Marshmellow Soothing Mask

Another face mask that I’m not too into. It’s the elf Marshmellow Soothing Mask. It doesn’t dry my skin out. It leaves it moisturized and refreshed. Don’t expect anything special from this face mask. I wouldn’t buy it again. Oh, I almost forgot to say, the fragrance is overwheming. To me, at least. If you’re sensitive to fragrance, don’t purchase this.

3. elf Mattifying Mask with French Green Clay

Here’s another face mask from elf. It’s the elf Mattifying Mask with French Green Clay. elf skin care products does a great job at pulling people in due to their price range — they’re cheap! With this face mask, I didn’t see anything special about it. I’m going to use it up and that’s all. Fragrance is an issue with the elf Mattifying Mask too. I don’t like it.

4. Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask

Last but not least, Aztec Secret! I purchased this about a month ago. I wanted a new face mask that helped with my oily skin and acne. I’m really happy that I found this. As someone with breakout-prone skin, this has helped my skin a lot. It has made my skin look and feel less oily afterwards. It’s really good at drying up pimples and pulling out clogged pores too. When it’s on the skin, it has a tightening effect on the skin. This is by far my favorite face mask that I’ve used in a long time. Look forward to more information on this face mask soon. =)

Is Dairy Ruining My Skin?

Leave a comment
Milk

After talking about my new skin care routine, I was wondering if dairy could be another culprit that’s giving me acne. I recently switched from a vegan diet to a vegetarian diet. A vegetarian diet that consists of eggs and dairy products. I have noticed that my skin is looking different too. The texture and condition of my skin just reacts differently to my skincare and makeup. It’s not as smooth anymore. My skin has been a little bit more oily too. These are just observations.

I came up with a plan. Here it is.

I’m going to stick to my current skin care routine for a week, which only consists of two skin care products — face wash and an acne treatment. If my skin doesn’t change along with consuming dairy, then I’ll know that dairy is indeed causing issues for me. I have been thinking about going back to being vegan or cutting dairy out of my diet. Hmmm. Let’s see what happens after a week. Only time will tell.
