Best Botanical Masques for an Organic Facial

  •  

    If you are like me, your skin is missing its monthly organic facial. The added stress from the pandemic, paired with a lack of routine, can lead to increased acne, dryness, and an overall lackluster skin surface. As you try to establish a new normal for yourself, consider adding a face masque twice a week. Feeding your skin with high-quality botanicals will keep your skin vibrant, and may even nudge you into feeling a little brighter on the inside, too!

    At Jessica’s Apothecary, we stock a wide variety of masques! How would you choose the best one(s) for your organic facial? Allow me to present them to you by skin concern.

    (In general, masques should be applied to clean, dry skin and left on for 10-15 minutes.)


    Organic Facial: Masques for Dryness

     

    Dryness in the skin is due to a lack of oil in the epidermis. Some people consider their skin dry even when it is just dehydrated, which is a lack of water. Dehydration can still coexist with an underlying condition of excess oil production. A masque can alleviate dryness, but a consultation with your esthetician can help get to the cause. Whether from a lack of oil or a lack of water, any of these botanical face masques are a good choice for your organic facial if your skin is dry.

    Organic Facial: Masques for Dullness

     

    The skin usually appears dull because of a lack of cellular turnover. As we age, our skin’s metabolism slows down.

    Organic Facial: Masques for Acne

     

    Acne occurs in both oily and dry skin. 

    • Hands down the best acne-fighting mask I have ever used is the Acne Advanced Clarifying Masque. Not only can you mask your whole face with it once or twice per week, but you can spot treat and sleep with it on your pimples. The winning combination is sulfur (but you can barely smell it!), salicylic acid, and three different kinds of clay.
    • If you have hormonal acne and your skin isn’t too sensitive, lean towards the Eight Greens HOT
    • For mild acne and some dryness, the Strawberry Rhubarb Masque has a touch of salicylic acid but is also rich in hyaluronic acid.

    Organic Facial: Masques for Hyperpigmentation

     

    Pigmentation is best treated during a facial; however, masks extend the benefits of your organic facial at home. 

    • The Stone Crop Masque is a gel masque that balances uneven skin tone and increases moisture content in the skin.
    • For advanced hyperpigmentation on dry skin types, the Bright Skin Masque is very beneficial.
    • The Eight Greens Phyto HOT delivers plant-based estrogens to regulate hormonal acne and assist in oxygenation while lightening post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. 

    All these options are best when followed up with a daily botanical lightener, like our Bright Skin Licorice Root Booster Serum or our Bright Skin Overnight Correcting Cream

    Organic Facial: Masks For Fine Lines and Elasticity

     

    • The Firm Skin Acai Masque is loaded with hyaluronic acid and antioxidants to plump superficial lines on weathered skin.
    • The Bamboo Age Corrective Masque contains Swiss Green Apple Stem Cells to promote elasticity. It’s also in a shea butter and argan oil base for nourishing dry skin.
