Masking 101: The Benefits of Facial Masks

face mask skincare

There's no facial treatment I enjoy more than a face mask. It's incredibly beneficial for the skin and allows you to press pause for 10-20 minutes to focus on self-care. If you're new to masking or on the hunt for something new, here are four masks that will help you with your skincare needs and concerns.

Pumpkin Enzyme Masque by Shamanuti

While pumpkins make for cute fall décor and are delicious in pie, they also serve as an amazing ingredient in skincare! Shamanuti's Pumpkin Enzyme Masque contains pumpkin as the first ingredient, which is rich in antioxidants and a natural exfoliant. Lemon and sugarcane are also found in this mask and provide additional brightening effects, while allspice and cinnamon bark promote circulation. *Not for highly sensitive skin.

Ancient Mud Mask by Cocoon Apothecary

Cocoon Apothecary's Ancient Mud Mask smells delicately of roses. It contains dead sea mud and Canadian glacial marine clay to detoxify and purify the skin. These ingredients also assist in removing excess oil and provide essential nutrients to remineralize the skin. Neroli and rose absolute are two other ingredients present in this product. They add calming and soothing properties to the mask and aid in refining pores.


Hibiscus Exfoliating Mud by Apoterra

Packed with so many incredible ingredients, Apoterra's Hibiscus Exfoliating Mud provides a plethora of skin-renewing benefits. Its 2-in-1 scrub and mask is made with a synergistic cocktail of nutrient-rich raw honey, flowers, and fruit to gently exfoliate and renew dull, lackluster skin. This mask is perfect whether you need a skin “reboot” or to clear up your skin. The enzymes in this mask get down deep to treat and exfoliate, leaving you with a radiant complexion. Plus, the humectant properties in the honey, leave your skin feeling so soft! 

Application Process

Before you apply your mask, first prep your skin to ensure it receives the full benefits of the mask. We suggest washing your face with a mild cleanser and gently wiping your face with an organic facial cloth to remove any excess debris. Next, take a moment to read the instructions and apply the mask using clean fingertips or a brush. Then, sit back and relax while sipping on your favourite cup of tea. Once you've washed off the mask, your skin will be left feeling refreshed and rejuvenated!
