A masque is a rinse-off treatment that you apply to your skin, wait 5 to 20 minutes for it to dry or activate (depending on the ingredients), and then remove with a cloth or wash before moisturising.
Some masques can also be left on for a longer period of time. A masque can also be a cotton sheet mask that is applied to the skin and removed after a period of time. A facial mask might be considered skin food!!!
"Clean beauty products", at their most basic level, are free of potentially toxic and dangerous substances such as parabens, phthalates or formaldehydes, which have been proven carcinogen. This doesn't necessarily mean that the products are entirely natural, organic or eco-friendly!
Look on the website what "clean" means for each individual brand, because this is not a regulated term.
Your skin is colonized by a diverse microbiota. It is home to a diverse milieu of bacteria, fungi, viruses, bacteriophages, and archaeal communities.
Beneficial skincare formulation could influence your skin health by moisturising, re-fatting and regenerating the epidermal skin barrier, thus maintaining healthy skin and supporting the natural skin microbiome.
Cleansing is a key element in any skincare routine. There are many different types of cleansers on the market, to suit all skin types and preferences. Why is it not enough to clean your face with water alone?
