Skin masks are a trend that is here to stay, so this month we highlight three skin masks to pamper your skin.
Even though skin masks are loved by skincare enthusiasts, they are yet just another vehicle to deliver the ingredients to the skin, much like a serum or a cream. Nevertheless, skin masks have some particularities that make them so well-spoken.
- Firstly, most masks immediately provide visible effects, meaning that after the application you will see results on your skin. It is what happens with most moisturizing masks, for example with hyaluronic acid, as you will immediately see a plumping effect or with sebum regulating masks, for example, clay masks, as they absorb the oiliness on the skin. This is very exciting and particularly useful when you have a special event and like your skin to be at its best moment.
- Skin masks are also usually good in delivering ingredients to the skin since they create a barrier on the skin so that the ingredients have nowhere to go but the skin. An example of this is hydrogel masks that maximize the absorption of ingredients.
But there are so many masks! How can I choose the right mask for me?
Well even though the wide offer of skin masks may seem overwhelming, what you really need to know is your skin type and skin conditions. In general, there are moisturizing masks, purifying masks, anti-aging masks and brightening masks.
