I bet you do your best taking care of your skin and trying to keep it beautiful, youthful and supple, but somehow it's not working for you. If your skincare routine would bring the results you are hoping for, you wouldn't have the need to look for more tips on skincare online - right?

That's why I am assuming you want to bring your skincare routine to the next level to finally see visible, lasting results and beautiful skin.

The usual skin care routine consist of cleansing your face (in the morning and in the evening), using a day cream and if you already are seeing signs of aging on your skin, also a night cream and perhaps an eye cream in the evening. If you're not doing these things already, change your skincare routine so that you are taking care of the basics first.

But if your basic skin care is up to date and you really need a boost, here's my tip for you: natural face masks.

Face masks, when filled with the right ingredients and used regularly can really make a difference in how your skin feels and looks. Natural face masks are the best ones, as they don't have any chemicals that could irritate your skin, nor do they have ingredients which plump up your skin for an hour or so, fooling you to think the mask is really helping your skin improve, when in fact it's only creating a short-term illusion.

That's not the purpose of a good mask!

Instead, a natural face mask should nourish your skin deeply. The powerful ingredients it contains need to be able to penetrate into the deeper layers of skin, where they can unfold their benefits. That's why it's important to use masks that can be left on the skin for a longer time, to make sure the ingredients have the time to get absorbed. This is especially important for hydrating and moisturizing masks.

Some of the best all-natural ingredients you should look for in a natural hydrating face mask are Natural Vitamin E, Avocado Oil and Active Manuka Honey. These three moisturizing ingredients are very nourishing ans suitable for all skin types, not to mention they all have anti-aging qualities.

For cleansing masks look for one based on clay such as kaolin or Bentone gel. A cleansing mask should also hydrate your skin, no matter what your skin type is, so Vitamin E and Manuka Honey are good choices in cleansing masks, too.

Try one mask first and use it once in two weeks. Often one mask is enough; if not, complement your skincare routine with another mask, so that you are using a mask once a week. If the ingredients are of high quality, you should be able to be happy about your beautiful, smooth and younger looking skin in no time!
