Skincare lovers can’t go without a good face mask in their skin care routine, since this product has a high concentration of active ingredients that act immediately, deeply and for a long time on the skin. In addition, the face mask is ideal to complement other daily treatments, reinforcing skin hydration.
Each mask concentrates specific benefits for the skin, such as nourishing, preventing aging, treating acne, detoxing, reducing oiliness, reducing pores and much more – everything will depend on the product’s formula.
When it comes to composition and texture, besides the classic fabric face mask, nowadays there are other types as well, such as cream, clay and liquid masks (also known as peel off).
With clean and dry skin, you can apply the cream, clay or peel-off masks with a brush or even with your fingers. Wait the action time indicated on the product packaging and then remove the mask with water. For the peel-off mask, after the product has completely dried on the face, you can gently pull it from the sides to the center of the face – if any small pieces of product remain, just remove it with a cotton round and water. In all cases, then just follow your skincare routine normally.
For the fabric mask – the famous sheet masks, apply it on your clean face, adjusting so that it covers the entire face. Wait for the action time indicated on the product packaging and then remove the fabric, but do not rinse your face. Just wait for the skin to completely absorb all the liquid and voilà: treated skin!
The use of a face mask is not a substitute for daily skin care, but it can help to enhance treatments. Nowadays, the beauty industry offers masks for all skin types, as well as for specific needs of each one. This type of product (regardless of its texture or composition), should be used once or twice a week and the indications vary according to the special needs of your skin.
