How do face masks work?
Different types of face masks have different purposes. There are masks for deep-cleansing pores, reducing oiliness, adding moisture, and tightening the skin. Nevertheless, all face masks basically eliminate the bad stuff that builds up on your skin and replaces it with the good stuff.
Face masks absorb excess oils, particularly on the t-zone area or the area from the tip of your nose to your lower forehead. They get rid of the dirt, dead skin cells and grime on your face, which reduces blemishes and breakouts. You can look forward to clearer skin after the first couple uses.
Face masks also tighten the pores, while infusing oxygen and moisture to promote cell turnover and skin renewal. They add antioxidants and vitamins to the epidermis, (outermost layer of skin) to fight against aging and repair skin damage. They also improve blood circulation.
Perks of putting on a face mask
There are plenty of reasons why you should use a face mask at least once a week.
For starters, these masks are therapeutic. After a long day, you can put on a face mask infused with aromatic essential oils to relax. No need to be ashamed of your green tea and mint essential oil-infused mask. Plenty of men use masks to keep their complexion looking good. Just give it a try, we bet that you’ll be convinced after your first mask.
Face masks penetrate the top layer of skin, giving you a deeper cleanse. It’s not enough to just wash your face with soap and water. You also have to get rid of the deep-rooted impurities like dirt and oil. They knock out the bacteria trapped in your pores that can cause pimples and other blemishes, unclogging the pores and leaving your skin glowing in good health.
After taking off the mask, your skin will be smoother, softer, and more even toned.
Protip: When buying a face mask, choose one with a tingly mint formula to stimulate blood circulation.
