Q: I’d like to start using a facial mask, but I’m not sure which  kind is right for my skin type. Can you explain the differences?

MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:

When choosing a facial mask, the first and most important thing to do is to find one that best suits your skin. MyChelle offers an array of masks, scrubs and peels with varying ingredients and effects to accommodate different skincare needs. Do you experience a lot of oil and shine throughout the day? Are you prone to breakouts? If so, a clay mask is the best choice for you. The MyChelle Cranberry Mud Mask will deeply purify and calm oily and problematic skin. A blend of richly detoxifying kaolin and bentonite clays absorbs excess oil and debris from pores, while Totarolâ„¢ purifies and balances. Cranberry extract, known as one of the “super fruits” for its high antioxidant content, helps support skin and give it a luminescent glow.

For dry or sensitive skin The Hydrating Cactus Mask luxuriously softens, soothes and maintains hydrating moisture. Skin protecting and antioxidant-rich prickly pear cactus combines with soothing blue agave to ease discomfort and signs of redness ““ while deeply hydrating and preventing moisture loss. Protection is further enhanced with smithsonite and malachite stone extracts to shield against environmental stress and pollution.

Whatever your skin needs, MyChelle treatments clear the way to balanced, smooth and youthful-looking skin.
