If you have oily skin, you may already be well aware of the skin benefits of clay masks but this particular type of Anti-Vice Facial ‘Mud’ Mask can benefit any skin type. For drier skin types, it applies organic oils and extracts to hydrate the skin at a cellular level while for oilier skin types, it reduces oil production while not ripping off natural oils that protect the skin. Think of it as a third party when you are in dispute with your skin; the final resolve. Below are some beneficial key points which make GOA’s Face Mask a perfect addition to any man’s skin routine.
DRAWING OUT THE BUILDUP OF IMPURITIES
Dirt, oil, pollution, alcohol consumption, smoke, and other impurities can build upon the surface of the skin each day, leaving your skin feeling rough, not to mention making pores appear larger. Dead skin cells also accumulate on the skin’s surface and, if they aren’t properly sloughed away, can lead to breakouts down the line. That’s why it’s important to exfoliate regularly and deep clean your skin to remove any buildup that may be on your skin. The mud mask can help draw out the buildup of these impurities for skin that feels fresh and clean.
BRINGING LIFE BACK TO YOUR FACE
If your complexion is looking kind of dull these days; overall skin dullness is often a result of lack of proper sleep, over-work, lack of exfoliation and skin maintenance, but using the mud mask for just 15 minutes a couple of times a week can help keep your complexion looking fresh and healthy.
THE MATTE LOOK
Have oily skin? The mud mask can help mattify the appearance of your complexion for a glossy-free look without stripping away natural oils that help to protect the skin. The clay contains pockets which absorb an overproduction of oils from your skin which rinses away.
FATIGUE AND STRESS REDUCTION
External and internal factors which cause the skin to be fatigued or stressed can affect the foundation in which new skin forms. A lack of sleep or an overstressed mind can cause an increase in cortisol production which ultimately affects the skin tone, texture and overall health of the skin. The mud mask helps to suppress these damages, including dark spots while applying nutrients and aromatherapeutic benefits.
REFINING PORES & ELIMINATING BLACKHEADS
First things first, you can’t get rid of your pores. Some of us just have pores that are naturally larger than others. And if you are enjoying your vice, they can get larger. Using the mud mask can really pull out blackheads while constricting pores to a smaller size. When pores are refined, your skin tone will appear more even and your complexion will look healthier.
MANAGING BREAKOUT-PRONE SKIN
Letting dead skin cells, dirt, oil, and debris build up on the surface of your skin for too long will lead to breakouts. It’s inevitable—but don’t assume breaking out is simply fated. Using the mud mask two times a week to slough away dead skin cells and purify your skin of excess oil and dirt can eliminate acne breakouts while protecting the skin.
RESTORING YOUR SKIN’S BALANCE
If your skin doesn’t fall on either end of the spectrum—dry or oily—then you probably have combination skin. Using a clay mask can help balance combination skin and, unlike other masks, not leave it overly dry or—worse yet—irritated.
