How To Make The Most Of Masking

Just when you thought the mask category couldn't expand anymore (you've got sheet masks, peel masks, powder masks, wet masks, etc.) you're hit with this: a mask PRIMER. Your initial thoughts are most likely similar to what mine were..."Does it do anything/is there a point?" Well, actually it does a few pretty great things and yes there is! 

The Origins Maskimizer Skin Optimizing Primer preps, primes, and optimizes the skin prior to masking. Specifically, it improves overall condition of the skin by softening, soothing, hydrating, and boosting radiance immediately with its mixture of algae, green tea, and cucumber extract. It also increases your ability to rinse and spread the mask, as some can dry and be difficult to remove, while others can be viscous and less apt to glide around the face. 

I love using this right before my mask because it doesn't take any serious commitment but produces great results! Think of this the same way you would a toner before a moisturizer; it boosts the benefits. Sometimes my dry skin feels uncomfortable when I apply a mask straight on a clean, product-free face. This rids of the problem entirely, while making my skin feel extra great post-mask...give it a go and see for yourself!
