When to Use a Face Mask in Your Skin Care Routine

Keeping your skin clean and hydrated is the first step to having great skin. But in order to have healthy, glowing skin all the time, you need a little bit of an extra boost. That’s where a face mask comes in. Using a face mask on a regular basis is an easy way to give your skin exactly what it needs without spending hours at the spa or investing in expensive products that you won’t use regularly enough to see results. Face masks can help with keeping blemishes away, reduce redness, shrink pores, soothe acne, get rid of blackheads, hydrate dry patches of skin—the list goes on and on. And luckily for us, face masks are becoming more popular than ever before thanks to Instagram and beauty bloggers everywhere. Here are some reasons why you should be using a face mask in your skin care routine:

Face Masks Are Easy to Slip Into Your Routine

Face masks are a quick, convenient way to give your skin the boost it needs without having to spend hours at the spa. Some masks you apply directly but face masks that are powdered where you add the liquid are the new trend. This allows you to add the liquid agent and avoid extra preservatives on your skin. Using powdered face masks can be as easy as simply adding water or you can get creative by adding basic liquid agents like honey or yogurt. This might take a little extra time but it is well worth it! 

They Help With Reducing the Appearance of Blemishes

One of the many reasons why you should be using a face mask is to help reduce the appearance of blemishes. Usually, acne or breakouts will come and go but that doesn’t mean it won’t have an impact on your self-esteem. In other words, you can work with your skin to make sure it doesn’t get worse than it already is. One way to do this is by using a face mask that will help reduce redness, dry patches, and blackheads left behind from breakouts.

They Help Reduce the Appearance of Pores

A very common problem skin care-wise is enlarged pores. Shrinking pores can be difficult but a good face mask can help. Most masks are made with clay that naturally absorbs oils from your skin and helps to pull out impurities. Using a mask on a regular basis will gradually shrink your pores over time.

They Soothe and Soften Skin That’s Irritated

If your skin is sensitive, it needs some TLC. No one likes having irritated skin and feeling like their face is on fire. It’s not only unpleasant for you, but those around you can see the redness too. Face masks are the perfect way to soothe that irritated skin and make it feel soft again. Face masks can also help treat breakouts or other skin irritations by soothing the redness and reducing any irritation that might be causing more pimples to develop. They’re a great way to eliminate redness caused by cold weather conditions as well, which can happen during the winter months when heaters are in full swing and we're all bundled up indoors all day long.

They Help Get Rid of Blackheads

Blackheads are caused by the oxidization of sebum on the skin’s surface. This causes the pores to become blocked and create an opening for dirt, bacteria, and oil to clog the space left from these pores. Using a face mask that is specifically designed to exfoliate and reduce blackheads on your skin can help keep breakouts at bay without having to use harsh products like benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid.

They Hydrate Dry Patches of Skin

One of the best ways to make your skin look and feel better is to hydrate the dry patches of skin. Your face mask should have a hydrating product that will help bring moisture back into your skin. This will help give you a dewy, radiant complexion and make it appear smoother than ever before.

Merigold Face Mask

Merigold had a wide array of great face masks to choose from and use. It’s the ultimate skin-care product because it contains natural ingredients that are good for your skin, such as turmeric, matcha, gotu kola, and so many other skin-loving ingredients.

And not only do Merigold's masks provide glowing, healthy skin, but also smell incredible without any synthetic or harsh fragrances or ingredients!


Face masks are an easy way to give your skin the extra boost it needs. They're becoming more popular than ever before thanks to beauty bloggers and Instagram. There are so many different face masks that can help with a variety of skin issues, from acne to dry patches. Using a face mask on a regular basis (we recommend once a week) is an easy way to give your skin exactly what it needs without spending hours at the spa or investing in expensive products that you won’t use regularly enough to see results.
