In the current climate for beauty and skincare,  there is a face mask for literally any skin type or issue. Here is how to know which one to use for your skin.

Not only can a face mask provide some much needed ‘chill time’, it also can be used to cure an array of skin issues including oily, dry, dull, or dehydrated skin.

However, at times is can be difficult to determine what face mask will help you with what problem.

Bondi Beauty will break down the four most common types of face masks, and what they are best for.

Clay Mask

Generally, clay masks are used because the clay can absorb oil from the skin and detoxify the skin as it draws out impurities.

The Alkira Purifying Facial Masque uses Kaolin clay to absorb the skins oil to clarify one’s complexion and rid toxins from the skin.
