Want to take your skincare regimen up a notch without spending a ton at your local day spa? Try using a facial mask right at home to treat yourself and your skin to some much needed TLC. I like to dedicate Sundays as face masks days to address any issues I notice during the week. It helps me relax and gets my skin ready for the next week.

Quick, Targeted Solutions

Face masks are like fast facials in a jar. They are easy to use and offer excellent results in a short time. When you take the time to apply a mask, you’re investing in the health of your skin, and it gives you a chance to address particular concerns. Whether it’s acne control, reducing the visibility of pores, hydration, or anti-aging, there are tons of benefits to using a face mask.


Hydrating masks are the key to beating dry skin, especially during the winter. Applying a hydrating mask at night before bed helps ensure that your skin can really reap the benefits while you sleep, rather than losing that moisture when you’re out in the elements during the day. Mielle’s honey skin care collection, such as Pomegranate and Honey Hydrating Face Mask, is sure to leave your face feeling hydrated. It adds much-needed moisture and gently cleanses your pores, resulting in a radiant glow. Squeeze a dime-sized amount onto your fingertips and gently massage onto damp skin, avoiding the area around your eyes. Leave the mask on for five to seven minutes and then rinse with water.


Facial masks can also benefit oily skin, but keep in mind that some hydrating masks may actually make your skin oilier. Instead, look for a detoxifying, purifying mask that is clay-based and contains red algae. These are great natural ingredients for skin care that pull dirt and excess oils from the skin while tightening your pores. Face masks penetrate deeper into the layers of your skin than other skin care products, providing an amazing detox. Using face masks regularly cleans your pores and keeps the skin clean, reducing the chances of getting acne.

Anti-Aging Effects

Certain face masks focused on anti-aging and are loaded with antioxidants. These masks can give your face a smoother and brighter appearance while minimizing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Look for masks that have extracts that aid in resurfacing the skin. Face masks, especially those with peeling ingredients, can help with blood circulation as well. The scrubbing action of washing off a dry mask stimulates and expands blood vessels, providing much-needed nourishment to the skin and improving its condition.

Absolutely anyone, regardless of their skin type, should consider applying face masks every week as part of their skincare regimen. Are you adding a face mask to your weekly skin care routine? Let us know, and try out Mielle’s natural, organic skin care products today!

High levels of monounsaturated fatty acids - the good fats - make avocados great as a natural moisturizer for our hair. Our hair is naturally prone to dryness because, due to the curls and coils, the natural oil produced by the scalp, sebum, takes longer to travel down the length of our strands.

For the longest time, the power of cool in haircare has been relegated to the cool rinse at the hair salon, or the cold shot button on your blow dryer — which, by the way, is an underestimated feature that helps to smooth down the hair’s cuticles to create maximum shine and help your style last longer.
