There are many types of face mask available today – from deep cleansing to illuminating, plumping and detoxifying face masks, the list is endless. The trick is to decide what you want the mask to do and then to find one that suits your skin type.

If your skin has blocked pores and other similar problems, a purifying mask could be just what you need. This shouldn’t be too harsh, as you want to improve your skin and not aggravate it.

A mask such as the Que Bella purifying tea tree and witch hazel mud mask is ideal. The ingredients are designed to work in harmony to gently deep cleanse the skin without stripping its natural oils.

The beauty benefits of Dead Sea mud are legendary – it detoxifies at the same time as it nourishes; it contains many minerals that are absorbed into the skin, leaving it supple and moisturised; and it exfoliates the skin and tightens the pores.

Witch hazel has been used for years to tighten pores and reduce inflammation. It has astringent properties that are believed to balance out oil production and reduce the risk of a breakout.

Tea tree has antioxidant properties that naturally cleanse the skin. It has anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties, helping to heal and reduce inflammation.

This mask also contains soothing aloe vera, which is well known for its healing properties. Aloe vera also contains minerals, amino acids (the building blocks of proteins), vitamins and antioxidants.

Designed to cleanse your skin and leave it soft and moisturised without stripping its natural oils, this purifying mask is suitable for oily, combination or normal skins.
