Skincare is a vital part of a complete healthy lifestyle. Face masks are like boosters to a good skincare regime. Some use them to relax or as a quick fix for embarrassing skin problems, the diversity of face masks make them a necessary component to a complete skincare system. We know of the relaxing qualities of facial masks, but what other benefits do they provide?
Benefits of Face Masks
Face masks provide quick results for:
The firming properties help to minimize fine lines and wrinkles while giving moisture as well.
The deep cleansing properties of facial masks clear clogged pores to prevent pimples or blackheads from forming.
Face masks give focused, concentrated treatment for various skin types. It can be described as a medium with hydrating, relaxing, soothing qualities the skin needs. Usually worn for 5-10 minutes they are given more time to penetrate pores and administer needed vitamins and minerals to alleviate skin problems. Results are usually visible after a single-use, so are recommended for pesky spot treatments or quick relief from dryness, redness or swelling.
How often should you use a face mask?
Face masks tend to be on the gentler side of skincare and can be used as often as you’d like. Approximately 3 to 5 times per week. How often you use a face mask is determined by your skin type and needs. For those with a dry skin type and skin with zero or few problems, 1 to 2 times per week is recommended. Aim for masks that replenish the skin’s moisture levels. Oily and combination skin types can aim for more mask days per week with masks that help to balance the skin’s moisture level.
There are no scientifically proven reasons against using multiple face masks, as each was made to solve different skin problems a person may have. You could use a firming mask in the morning and a hydrating mask at night without causing any damage to the skin. However mixing masks is ill-advised, and can irritate the skin. Monitor your skin’s reaction to the use of multiple face masks, since some skin types are more sensitive to alternating products than others.
Your schedule and lifestyle will also determine how often you can or should use face masks. All together skincare is personal, so create a regimen that works best for you.
Types of face masks
All masks were not created equal, but all masks were created to meet your skin’s needs. The best face mask for you is the mask that checks all or most of the boxes on your skin’s needs list and helps your skin to help itself. Face masks come in several forms like gel face masks, sheet masks, clay, creams, and peels.
