Why Use a Facial Mask?

 

Face masks are used to supplement skincare routines and ensure healthy facial skin. These masks come in a wide variety of formulas such as clay or gel to help improve skin texture and complexion. 


Facial masks are typically applied to the facial area and left on for a recommended period to allow them to work. They contain vital nutrients and elements with specific benefits for the skin. The mask barrier locks in these beneficial elements to enrich and restore the skin.

Benefits of Facial Masks

 

There are many benefits to using a facial mask. These masks are well equipped to ensure proper skin hydration and moisturization. They add vital moisture content to dry skin to help with healing. Their occlusive nature allows them to lock in moisture in the skin when applied,  improving the water retention capabilities of the skin. This moisture takes deep root in the skin, improving its elasticity. 


Properly hydrated skin appears youthful and healthy. Face masks also have the ability to restore clogged skin pores. They also absorb excess skin oils and dirt, which can be harmful to the skin. This limits the occurrence of breakouts and also betters their appearance. 


They will also go a long way in reversing the aging of the skin. Their properties allow them to limit the occurrence of wrinkles and fine lines, which appear as we get older.

Some masks have restorative properties, brightening dark skin spots and improving skin texture. Masks may also have the ability to trigger collagen production to firm the skin for a younger look. The skin needs to stay well aerated and masks ensure this aeration by ensuring sweat glands are operating optimally. They also prevent hyperpigmentation which can dull the skin tone.

How often to use a facial mask

 

Experts recommend that masks be used, at most, twice every week. However, skin type and condition will influence how often you need to use a mask. The results from using a face mask may not last long. This is why many will apply the masks on days they need an extra glow in their facial skin.


Using a mask once a week over a long period of time may, however, improve your general skin health. It would be best to follow the manufacturer's recommendations for your skin type when using these masks.


Estheticians may also advise on which components to consider and which ones to avoid, dependent on your skins preferences.

Types of Facial Masks

 

1. Cream Masks


Masks with a cream base have a texture similar to that of a rich skin moisturizer. These masks may be used on varied skin types, whether dry, oily, aging or inflicted by acne. It would be good to note that they are better suited to dehydrated skin given their moisturizing properties. Not only do they hydrate the skin, but they also nourish it with vital elements.


Cream masks may be used on combination skin and for treating dark spots. The gentle nature of these masks allows them to remove worn-out skin cells and tone your skin softly. Many cream masks contain hyaluronic acid. They may be used with skin moisturizers for better results.


2. Gel masks 


Gel masks have both cooling and moisturizing properties. This nature makes them ideal for use across many skin types and conditions. They are better suited for use on skin exposed to sun damage and dehydration. Their nature allows them to be used up to 3 times a week. Based on the manufacturers' recommendations, these masks may be applied overnight. Gel masks are often composed of antioxidants and collagen. Gel masks may be wiped off with damp cloths or washed off.


Cream masks may be used on combination skin and for treating dark spots. The gentle nature of these masks allows them to remove worn-out skin cells and tone your skin softly. Many cream masks contain hyaluronic acid. They may be used with skin moisturizers for better results.


3. Clay masks 


Clay masks have a proven track record spanning many years. These masks are based on kaolin and bentonite clay, which are believed to have medicinal properties. They are ideal for skin types prone to acne, given their ability to remove toxins from deep within the skin. Individuals with dry skin may not get much benefit from clay masks. These masks draw in oil, dirt, and moisture, which could leave dry skin in a much more dire situation. It would be best to use a skin moisturizer after treatment with a clay mask.


4. Exfoliating Masks 


These masks are specifically tailored to remove old cells from the skin, allowing new ones to grow. Their use revitalizes the skin regeneration cycle, allowing newer skin cells to flourish. These masks come with a peel-off design that removes these cells in most cases. They may use hydroxy acids, which break down dead cells for removal. Some have a particulate matter which is rubbed on the skin to buff off loose cells.
