One of the most effective steps to include in your daily skin care routine is applying face masks for quick and beneficial results. Adding extra care helps the skin stay healthy, revitalized, and illuminated.
What is a face mask?
A face mask is any type of formula such as cream, clay, gel or sheet, leaving on skin for 10 to 15 minutes. Face masks include a high concentration of active ingredients which have strong and lasting results. Their effect can even last several days on the face.
Why are the benefits of face masks?
Face masks are indicated for all kinds of skin needs, from providing extra hydration to cleaning pores and impurities. They are very useful for treating the skin, especially for dry skin that needs an extra boost of hydration and oily skin to prevent pimples and blackheads.
All kinds of face masks treat the skin deeply and leave it soft, smooth, and energized. There are face masks for all skin needs: hydrating skin, minimizing pores, improving winkles, brightening tone, and much more.
How often can you put on a face mask?
Face masks can be used daily by combining different masks according to the needs of the skin. One or two days a week for pore reduction, another day or two for moisturizing, another for luminosity, etc. For instance, hydrating face masks can be used daily, while exfoliating masks should be used once a week.
It is traditionally known that you can do it once or twice a week when you feel the skin needs it, but wearing a face mask every day has many benefits. It is a key step in night skin care routine to recover from exposure to UV rays during the day and regenerate skin cells.
