Maximize the Effectiveness of Your Regimen
A daily skin care
regimen can put you on the path to having healthier skin, but many people find that they need a little something more than their everyday cleansers
, treatments and moisturizers
to get the results they desire. Facial masks are made to enhance the effectiveness of daily regimens by exposing the skin to beneficial ingredients for an extended period of time.
When you leave a facial mask in place for the amount of time recommended by the manufacturer, the ingredients have an opportunity to fully penetrate the skin. Depending on the needs of your skin and which product you purchase, you may choose to apply a mask very regularly, such as once or twice per week, or occasionally, such as on a monthly basis.
Types of Facial Masks
All skin care masks are left to rest on the complexion for a set period of time, but there are differences between the ways that masks are used. Some masks should be rinsed away with water after a treatment, while others are designed to be wiped away with a cloth or cotton balls. You'll also find masks that dry during a treatment and are then peeled away. The product descriptions and directions will tell you more about how each mask is used and will let you know how long you'll need to wear the mask to get best results.
Formulas for All Concerns
Facial masks are formulated to address specific skin care concerns, making it important that you take the time to find one that is ideal for your complexion's unique needs. Some products are used to draw oil and impurities out of the skin to reduce blemishes and address oversized pores. Anti-aging masks soften fine lines and wrinkles and promote firmer skin, while brightening masks help to improve skin tone. There are also hydrating masks for dry skin, soothing masks for irritated skin and exfoliating masks that remove dead skin cells from the complexion.
