C.S.M Tip Tuesdays: How to Prep Your Skin For A Face Mask Session

Do you love facial mask sessions? We certainly do! We love the extra nutrients we can get from these goodies! 

Madame Rowley, who, we fondly call the Queen of Face Masks, invented the first facial mask during the 19th century. The purpose of the facial mask before was to bleach, purify, and preserve the skin’s complexion. 

Today, the benefits of facial masks range from achieving an extra glow to deep hydration. In short, you can find a specific facial mask for your specific skin need. And you can even DIY them! 

If you are a facial mask lover, you might have discovered a way to maximize its benefits. But some are still apprehensive if it’s really effective. Do they really work?

Well, we think that how you prep your skin before applying a facial mask matters. 

Prepping your skin before a facial mask session is essential. An oily and dirty face can only block the good nutrients that your products have. 

Prepping means stripping your skin from unnecessary particles that might be the reason why your facial mask can’t do its magic. 

But how? Don’t worry. Lacey, the founder of C.S.M, will show you how she does it.  

How To Prep Your Skin For A Facial Mask Session

This is a simple yet effective way of prepping your skin to absorb all the goodness you can get from your favorite face mask product. 

Step 1. Cleanse with C.S.M Renew

Cleanse your face before anything else, especially if you wear makeup. Pick a cleanser that not only cleanses but also exfoliates your skin. 

Our C.S.M Renew is an organic facial cleanser that is perfect for all skin types. It contains natural ingredients that deeply cleanse and gently exfoliate your skin. 

But if we are after double cleansing our skin, we use our organic facial cleanser with C.S.M Konjac Sponge. It guarantees a super clean and glowing finish.

Step 2. Tone with C.S.M Rose Aloe Witch 

Toning your face after a deep cleanse is as important as cleansing your skin. It will bring back the important oils that were stripped off from cleansing. 

Toners balance the pH level of your skin. But aside from that, it preps your skin in absorbing all the nutrients from the products. That’s why using a toner is essential before you apply a face mask. 

Look for toners that are hydrating and toxin-free, like our C.S.M Rose Aloe Witch. Spray and pat in, spray and pat in, that easy!

Step 3. Apply the mask with C.S.M Face Mask Brush

And now for our favorite part! We have a list of favorite face masks, but our top pick would be anything that deeply hydrates our skin and gives a glow finish. And a gel-based face mask is a plus because you can refrigerate it before use! It gives an extra cooling, relaxing feeling. 

Applying a face mask is relaxing, not until it gets messy! A messy face mask session is expected - it’s part of it. And just like you, we don’t like it. 

Plus, if you use your fingers to scoop and lather the product on your skin, that can contaminate the products and irritate your skin. Yikes! 

That’s why we love using our C.S.M Face Mask Brush! A silicone brush set of 3: 2 wedged brushes for even application and one spot treatment brush for specific areas. No more messy and wasted products!

Beauty Tip: Remove the mask with C.S.M Konjac Sponge

Usually, we just wash off the face mask product. But here in C.S.M, we always love to go extra for our skin. Instead of washing off, we remove our favorite mask using an already soaked C.S.M Konjac Sponge

It perfectly removes the product without stripping off the important nutrients!
