Your skincare routine should be something you enjoy, and taking the time to focus on yourself reaps mind, body, and beauty benefits. An effective and efficient skin care routine is a therapeutic process that will help you feel your best. As people search for ways and time to care for themselves, OFRA offers a simple solution. We believe in the power of skin care as a self-care ritual, and want to enable you to dedicate downtime to focus solely on yourself.
Here are ten simple steps that will turn your skincare routine from a tedious process into a rewarding self-care ritual:
- Take Time To Mask
Your daily skin care routine can become mundane, but setting aside some time for a face mask gives you both a power packed dose of skin loving essentials, and some time to relax. OFRA Revitalizing Clay Mask is the perfect me-time mask that restores your skin back to its natural glowing radiance.
Your skin is one of a kind, so what works for others may not work for you. Mix and match skincare products for a personalized routine that fits the needs of your skin type. For combination skin, apply the OFRA Volcanic Clarifying Mask to your T-Zone to soak up excess oil, and use the Revitalizing Clay Mask on the rest of your face for optimal hydration.
- Keep It Natural
Harsh chemicals strip the skin of essential nutrients, so treat your skin with natural ingredients. OFRA Brightening Mask contains Bearberry & Licorice Extracts that naturally lighten and brighten the skin, while all natural Shea Butter deeply moisturizes, and Horsetail & Horse Chestnut soothe.
Unlike harsh fragrances that can irritate your skin, natural fragrances and essential oils provide aromatherapeutic benefits that are good for both your skin and your state of mind. The OFRA Revitalizing Clay Mask has natural Chamomile, Rosemary, Green Tea and Kiwi Extracts that greet you with a soothing fragrance while soothing your skin.
- Brighten Your Complexion
Nothing boosts confidence like healthy bright and glowing skin. The OFRA Brightening Mask unleashes your skin's inner vibrancy by diminishing discoloration and pigmentation for a truly bright and radiant glow.
- Combat Acne
Clear skin is an important part to fearlessly facing the day. Combat acne and prevent future breakouts with regular use of the OFRA Volcanic Clarifying Mask. The naturally enriched Hawaiian volcanic clay in this mask stimulates and oxygenates the skin to fight blemishes and imperfections.
- Detoxify The Skin
Volcanic ash in the Clarifying Mask also draws out impurities and debris from the skin. This ingredient eliminates any unhealthy toxins and pollutants that sit on your skin and minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines.
- Soothe Irritations
Skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis can irritate the skin and leave it rough and dry. The OFRA Revitalizing Clay Mask takes away redness and itching associated with these conditions. Botanical Extracts provide soothing, calming and anti-itch effects while amino acids neutralize free radicals to protect the skin from fatigue and stress.
- Take 10
Stress can impact the skin negatively, so it’s important to set aside some time to relax and unwind. Setting aside just 10 minutes a day for yourself can have extreme health benefits. If you don’t have an abundance of free time, multitask with a mask! OFRA’s Brightening, Revitalizing Clay, and Volcanic Clarifying Masks all provide lasting results after only 10 minutes. With a 10-minute time frame, this moment of self-care is easily and seamlessly workable into your skincare routine.
- Don’t Skip Steps
While all of these masks are key additions to your skincare routine, it is equally important not to skip any other measures. Cleanse, tone and moisturize every day to ensure beautiful skin that ages gracefully. Use the OFRA Skincare Trio that’s best for your skin type to cleanse, treat and moisturize your skin on a regular basis.
Whether slathering on a mask before soaking in a long relaxing bath or throwing it on quickly before doing household chores, these ten skin care steps create a sanctuary from a hectic day and our busy lives. OFRA’s Brightening, Revitalizing and Clarifying masks are a vital step to loving your skin and loving yourself.
