A facial mask will clean and revitalize the skin gently yet deeply. Some masks also accelerate skin renewal.
Moisturizing: The last step is to apply a moisturizer specially formulated for your face. Please, please do not use hand and body lotions on your face. You may not see the harm that you are doing immediately but you will as you age! Moisturizing should happen twice a day right after you use your toner or mask.
Facial moisturizers will absorb and hydrate the skin while keeping it moist throughout the day or evening. Not only should you think about a facial moisturizer but one for your eye area as well. And if you have bags, small lines or black circles under your eyes, there are moisturizers specially formulated to reduce the signs of aging around your eyes.
Do not over moisturize if you have dry skin. It is a mistake made by many to think that if you moisturize your face all day long with a "normal" moisturizer you are doing the right thing. Wrong! You should be using a moisturizer specially formulated for dry skin and thus will only need to apply twice a day same as everyone else. And conversely, do not under moisturize your face if you have oily skin. The same principle applies. Moisturizers protect your skin from the environment and are a critical part of your cleansing routine.
If you are dedicated to your skin, as you age you will no doubt see the benefits!
