Let’s face it: Masking is so much fun. There’s nothing more soothing than a Friday night, in pajamas, binging your favorite TV show, while putting on your favorite face mask. It’s the perfect selfcare activity! But masking isn’t just fun. It’s an important part of your skincare routine! Depending on the face mask you use, it has a lot of benefits for your skin!
What are the benefits of face masks?
Face masks have many benefits for your skin, depending on the type of face mask, and the skin concerns you’re trying to target. They tend to have a higher concentration of active ingredients that are needed to improve your skin’s health. Because of this concentration of active ingredients, face masks act quickly, and results can be seen almost instantly. Overall, using face masks once or twice a week can help improve the appearance of your skin, as well as the texture of your skin. Face masks tackle multiple skin concerns. Face masks can help deliver moisture to dry or dehydrated skin. They can contain hydroxy acids that help remove dead skin cells. They can also help remove excess oil, help clogged pores, reduce large pores, improve skin texture and skin tone, aging skin, but most importantly, masks help deliver glowing skin.
When should you use a face mask?
You should use a face mask at least once or twice a week. While we love masking at night, it depends on the type of face mask, and your end goal. If you’re looking for a mask that provides hydration and preps your skin for an event, or for your makeup, we suggest adding it to your morning routine. However, we recommend masking at night. It will help you get the best results! Your skin cells renew during the night. When you mask at night, this helps that skin renewal process, and it will give your skin the best glow!
How Should I Apply a Face Mask?
When applying face masks, it’s best to follow directions on the packaging. For example, when applying cream-based masks, or clay masks it’s important to apply mask evenly. Don’t leave the mask longer than suggested, unless the product states it’s an overnight mask.
