3 Tips for Using a Face Mask When You Have Sensitive Skin

Ok you’ve probably have heard about the mask craze, but when you have sensitive skin, pay attention what you put on your face… 

Tip #1: A clay mask, yes, but which one for sensitive skin? 

The use of clay mask can date back to the ancient Egyptian time when the Queen used the clay mask as part of her beauty regime. 

Clay is an earthy sedimentary rock composed of many minerals (especially silica , aluminum, magnesium , calcium, iron , phosphorus, sodium , potassium, copper , zinc, selenium , cobalt, manganese ... ) Thus, the clay can be green, white , red, yellow, pink...

Among the different clay type, white clay is the a more gentle clay, thus more suitable for sensible skin. Those with sensitive skin will appreciate the watery creamy texture of the Pore Purifying Mask formulated with 2 white clays: the Kaolin and Bentonite. 

Tip #2: Pick a mask that is enriched with Mineralizing Water. 

The Quenching Mineral Mask contains 10% Vichy mineralizing water, we associated it with Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), famous for its soothing properties, to quench thirsty skin and relive skin discomfort in an immediate freshness. 

Tip #3: Use the Double glow peel mask tested and tolerated by sensitive skin 

Reason 1: the double glow peel mask contains fruit acid AHA (Alpha-Hydroxy Acids) and it helps peel off dead skin cells.  The AHA is composed of 5 plant extracts: blueberry, sugar cane, maple sugar, orange and lemon). It has been carefully formulated to ensure suitability for sensitive skin.

Reason 2: the double glow peel mask contains the volcanic rock crashed into ultra-fine powder to provide an mild exfoliation for sensitive skin.

Reason 3: Vichy tested the double glow peel mask under dermatological control on 54 women, 100% sensitive skin, 98% of them find the mask pleasant to use.
