All you need to know about Masks
Is a face mask worth the hype?
You may have seen on social media many influencers and celebrities raving about the benefits of expensive face masks, but if you are wondering whether purchasing an expensive face mask and detoxing your skin in this way is worth it, it definitely is. Face masks remove toxins and impurities, ease certain skin conditions that cause redness and help to improve the general appearance of the skin.
What are the different types of face mask?
As the trend for face masks has increased, so have the numbers of masks that are available on the market. You can buy sheet masks for one-off use that offer shots of hydration and vitamins E and C, exfoliating masks to remove impurities and clean pores, clay masks for oily skin, hydrating masks for moisture, and vegan masks made from completely natural ingredients. Choose the right mask for you based on your skin type and what you need the mask to do for you.
When is the best time to put on a face mask?
Everyone's skincare routine is different, and the same goes for when you might like to apply a face mask. Consider the extra time you will need to put the mask on, wait for it to activate and rinse off, and think about not wearing make-up afterwards to let your skin breathe. To apply the mask you will need to cleanse and exfoliate first. Some people apply their face mask in the mornings, as they find this best suits their lifestyle.
Why does my skin tingle when I use a face mask?
Feeling a tingling sensation on your face after wearing a mask is often perceived as having an allergic reaction, but this isn't always the case. It does depend on what is in the face mask in terms of ingredients, as lactic acid, tartaric acid, malic acid and glycolic acid are exfoliants which create a tingling sensation naturally. When you wash your mask off, look for any redness or irritation. If you have some, then your face mask might not agree with your skin.
