Face Masks for a Beautiful Glow
Proverbs 15:13 says, “A happy heart makes the face cheerful.” We all desire for our face to radiate with natural beauty. Naturally our faces will shine because God created us exquisitely beautiful, but as Christians, we’ll also exhibit His radiance through our countenance. But, it’s normal in our American society to want to physically emit a glamorous glow, which can be done with the right face mask.
To gain the best results, you don’t want to use any exfoliator. Be aware of your skin type and the ingredients in your products to ensure a quality outcome. When purchasing a facial mask, look for a beaded or smooth texture as some products are made with coarse or gritty ingredients that can scratch the surface of your skin leaving you susceptible to infection and open to additional exposure to dirt. Test and experiment to find a good facial scrub that works for your pH and particular skin type. To ease the search, here are nine of our favorites.

When to Use Your Mask?
Don’t use a face mask right before a big date or event because your skin may appear red after exfoliation. Use your face mask in the evening so you have the perfect glow the next day.
If you have dry or sensitive skin, exfoliate your skin once a month (once every two weeks at the most).
If you have combination skin, exfoliate every week to once a month.
If you have oily or acne prone skin, exfoliate your skin two to three times a week when the presence of oil increases, otherwise once a week should do it.
As your skin matures, you won’t need to exfoliate as often.
