With all the face mask mandates in place around the country at present, it is easy to be confused by masks! Face Masks have been used for many years by estheticians and beauticians to peel away aging signs for women over 50. 

As an absorption organ, our skin allows for the transfer of liquids, minerals, and byproducts. Our skin exudes liquid through sweat and absorbs oils and moisture from any product placed on it. Face masks are an excellent tool to add moisture and nutrients to the numerous layers of skin and our bloodstream. Using the right facial mask will assist you to withdraw toxins and free radicals from your body, but also replace them with pure nutrients needed for healthy, firm skin. 

Here is the list of the best, tested facial masks for women over 50.

Super rich with antioxidants and minerals, organic rooibos also boasts alpha hydroxy acid, which makes it a best friend for those suffering from oily, trouble, or sensitive skin issues like Dermatitis and Eczema. For skin care applications, Rooibos offers long-lasting antioxidant levels, a perfect ingredient to include in face masks and serums.

The antioxidants found in the rooibos leaves are known from studies to inhibit angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE). ACE indirectly increases blood pressure. Rooibos antioxidants counteract this and reduce the contraction of blood vessels.

To apply these face masks, follow the directions of the manufacturer of the product. As a general rule, here are some directions for the effective use of face masks.

Wash your face

Before you apply your mask, be sure to cleanse your skin thoroughly. Using warm water and your favorite facial cleanser, remove any makeup, dirt, and oil. Do not apply moisturizer and for best performance use a custom body wash.


If it has been a while since you last exfoliated, it is a good idea to do so before you apply your mask. Exfoliate to remove dead skin cells and help your mask work better.

Open your skin pores

Your mask will do the best if you open your pores before applying it. The simplest way to do this is to take a hot shower before applying your mask or steaming your skin by holding your head over a bowl of steaming water.

Apply the mask

Using a paintbrush (or another soft-bristled wide brush) or your fingertips apply the mask evenly to your face. If you do not have a brush and plan to use your fingertips, then make sure your hands are clean before applying the mask. Be sure that the application of the product is even and smooth. Avoid going too close to your eyes or mouth, Don’t forget your neck!

Set the timer

The length of time you will leave on your mask will vary based on the type of mask you are using, and the type of skin you have. In general, 10 -15 minutes is a good average for most masks. Set a timer for yourself and relax. Face Masks with clay should be removed before the mask dries completely.

Remove the mask

After the proper waiting time, use warm water and a washcloth to gently remove the mask. Be sure to gently wipe away all of the mask material from around your hairline and under your chin.

Apply Toner and Moisturizer/ Serum

Use a cotton ball to apply toner to your face and neck. The toner shrinks your pores and locks in all the benefits of your mask. Finally, apply a bit of your favorite moisturizer to replenish any moisture removed by the facial mask.
