Facial Masks are visible and widely used around the beauty industry. So many brands and so many functions! It gets confusing most of the time but it's a bit intriguing to use! The first facial mask I've purchased years ago was from Watson's, the type where I need to add water, mix it then apply it directly on face and let dry. It was fun yet time consuming at the same time so I shifted to sheet masks!
What are facial masks by the way?
I believe the purpose of facial masks is to improve skin texture and appearance and there are so many variants depending on the type of skin you have. Some examples are ---
- Moisturizing mask - perfect for dry skin, used to hydrate the skin
- Radiance mask - adds glow and life to dull skin
- Peel-off mask/Gel type mask - can smoothen the skin by closing up pores. Dries up and can easily peel off to remove excess oil
- Clay and Mud masks - best suited for oily skin. Dry in a very short period of time and helps detoxify the skin. Can open up pores and removes blackheads and excess dirt.
- Homemade masks - made from simple ingredients you can find in the kitchen, great for sensitive skin as its made of natural products.
There are some tips that I think I could share in using facial masks (any type)
- test the mask especially if you have sensitive skin. If it is sheet mask, I test the "liquid" part that's left on the packaging at the back of my ear.
- I usually leave masks longer than what's instructed, I learn my lesson, thanks to blogger friends out there, I leave it as what's instructed.
- always check the ingredients especially if you know what ingredients you're allergic to!
- if a certain brand works for you, you can try different variants to see which one works best for you
- if you found your favorite one, stick to it and use it regularly to see its effects
- if rashes or itchiness occurs, STOP using it just because you spent money for it or just because it works for a friend!
