Masques

Face masks are one of the trendiest ways to care for your skin today.

 

Dermatologists say that when used correctly, skin masks can improve your skin in a number of different ways.

Face masks can help absorb excess oils, open clogged pores, and reduce inflammation. And let’s admit it, skin masks also feel luxurious, and can be a fun way to give yourself a relaxed spa feeling in your own home.

There are several types of face masks on the market today, and each provides different skin benefits. Some of the most popular mask types include:

  • sheets

  • creams

  • gels

  • mud

  • clay

These may contain enzymes, antioxidants, and other active ingredients. Dermatologists typically recommend that you can use masks as little as once a week to as much as once a day.

How to apply a face mask

  • The first step in applying your face mask is choosing the right one for your skin type.

  • Hydrating. Hydrating cream or sheet masks are good for dry skin types. Some experts recommend applying masks overnight for maximum hydration.

  • Clay and mud-based. These are good for oily or mixed skin types.

  • Enzyme. Enzyme cream or gel masks and bubble masks are good for acne-prone skin types.

  • Gel. These are good for sensitive skin types.

  • Antioxidant. Antioxidant cream or gel masks are good for hyperpigmented skin types.

  • Once you’ve found a mask that works for you, it’s time to apply it. You can extend some face masks to your neck. Some masks should also be massaged into your skin to maximize their efficacy.

Cream mask

  • Cream masks come in two main types: rinse-off and peel-off.

  • In both cases, you apply the mask in the same way by using your fingertips to apply an even layer of cream over your face.
