The summer heat and humidity open the pores while sweating increase the build-up of dead skin cells and impurities in the air block the pores leading dryness, acne, uneven skin tone and even fine lines. This is why cleansing is one of the most important steps in a skincare routine, and undoubtedly so in the summer. You can be overwhelmed with choices of cleansing products, from cleansers to deep cleansing masks, enzymes to fruit acids peel, scrubs and even more. Deep cleansing masks and exfoliating products are particularly popular as part of the summer skincare routines. Let's take a look at the differences between mud masks, enzyme masks, fruit acid masks, and scrubs, so you can find the product that helps improve your skin conditions.


Clay Mask

The most common type of mask which is typically made from natural mud ingredients such as kaolin or bentonite, and is able to adhere tightly to the skin to absorb excess oil and impurities on the skin surface. It is popular for detoxifying the skin and is suitable for oily or acne-prone skin. It can help to deeply cleanse and purify pores, balance skin oil secretion, and leave the skin feeling refreshed and revitalized.

No matter what kind of deep cleansing mask, skin peeling or scrub product you have chosen, using it too frequently may over-clean the skin and affect the normal metabolic process of the skin. Let your skin be your guide - watch for changes in your skin and adjust your skincare routine accordingly. Deep cleansing or exfoliation can promote the absorption of subsequent skin care products, so we need to carefully select ingredients that help repair and protect the skin, supplement the moisture and oil needed, and maintain healthy and beautiful skin.
