Have you thought of using face masks at least once or twice a week? Are you aware of its significance and the benefits it may provide to your skin?
Face masks are currently one of the most popular skin care products on the market. Most advertisements, celebrities, and TV shows (particularly Korean ones) feature face masks and how they may pamper the skin. But, is it really necessary to incorporate face masks in our skin care routine?
Masks promise to hydrate, soothe, brighten, tighten, soften, diminish fine lines and dark spots, shut and unclog pores, and so forth. They also come in a variety of forms and ingredients, including mask sheets, films, creams, and pastes. But the fundamental principle is that “WE NEED TO KNOW WHAT THE PRODUCT IS, HOW IT CAN BENEFIT OUR SKIN, AND IF THE PRODUCT IS SUITABLE FOR OUR SKIN TYPE.” Because it’s our skin we’re talking about, and it’s the first thing people see and notice about us, we need to be meticulous when it comes to selecting and adding items to our skin care regimen.
Why do we need to include face mask in our skin care routine?
🌸Face mask takes cleansing to a deeper level. We all use cleansers or facial wash to get rid of all the dirt we gathered from the whole day, but do you know that using only facial wash is not enough to get rid of those stubborn dirt?
🌸Face masks can deeply penetrate our skin, removing all the impurities hidden underneath reason why after removing the face mask, we can feel that our skin feels toned and tighter.
🌸Face mask can also do an excellent job when it comes to unclogging our pores. It keeps the surface of our skin clean. It also helps us to remove the dead skin cells and absorbs the oil and dirt that clogging our pores preventing us from unwanted bumps on our skin.
🌸Face mask can stimulate our blood circulation. Maintaining the face mask on your face for some time helps our blood vessels to expand because of its cooling effect and because of this, more oxygenated blood flows to our face the reason why you will notice after removing the masks, our skin feels soft, smooth and supple. You will also notice that your face has it’s radiant glow and very fresh like its new.
🌸Face mask can also aide in better absorption of the products we are using. It helps all the products perform better and faster because your skin absorption functions better.
🌸Face mask can also make you relax after the whole tiring day of school and work.
🌸Face mask rejuvenates your skin and boosts the skin texture and complexion.
1. Choose your face mask based on the type of your skin you have.
2. Use your oil-based cleanser followed by your facial wash.
3. Don’t forget to tone your skin with your favorite toner. (If you are using face mask sheets/film, toner will comes first but if you are using face mask creams or pastes that needs to do rinsing, you should use toner after removing the face mask).
4. Apply face mask for about 15-20 minutes then remove or rinse the mask thoroughly.
That’s all there is to it! Your skin will have a vibrant shine. Just keep in mind that using a face mask more than once or twice a week may take away your skin’s natural oils, leaving it oilier and more prone to breakouts.
