Facial Masque Therapy best skincare treatment you can have at home
A facial mask might be considered skin food!!!
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.
Can facial masques help with wrinkles?
Although skincare firms are not permitted to make any medical or healing claims for their products, a good face masque can be used to treat and soothe your skin.
Instead of "toxins," facial masques remove dirt, filth, and pollutants. Clays, in particular, have the ability to bind particles together, allowing them to penetrate deeply into the pores. External clay facial mask application is a cosmetic procedure used to reduce skin lesions and improve overall skin condition.
Where does face masque go in your routine?
A good facial masque is both a cleanser and a skin treatment. Masques exfoliate dead skin layers from the face's surface. 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.
This results in a smoother, more youthful complexion while also reducing the appearance of dull skin. Masques may contain ingredients that draw blood to the skin's surface, improving tone and encouraging skin regeneration.
Apply the mask immediately after cleansing, especially if it requires rinsing off (like an exfoliating or detoxifying mask). Apply the mask before your moisturizer if it needs to be left on for the entire night.
What type of facial masque should I use?
A good facial masque should result in quick apparent and obvious benefits in the skin. Face masques have traditionally been created with clays and muds that have a drawing effect on the face, drawing impurities out and giving the skin a deep clean.
If you have a problematic skin and you often get acne In order to help unclog pores, look for masks that contain salicylic acid and other AHA/BHAs. Products with clay and charcoal in them have the potential to pull toxins and impurities from pores without drying out the skin.
What is a Clay Masque and when should I use it?
The classic kind of beauty masques are clay masques, which are applied to the skin and then harden as the clay draws out the water and any dirt or impurities from the skin. The consumer then uses a washcloth to wipe off the clay, leaving the skin feeling fresh and taut.
A clay masque has a delicious and cooling sensation, and because of its consistency, you can apply a thick layer to the skin. Clay masques may also include various botanical powders that could provide additional advantages in terms of colour and botanical extracts.
What is a Cream Masque and what is it good for?
The best way to deliver high performance cosmeceuticals to your skin is with a lotion cream masques.
The cream can also be in the form of a thin emulsion, but you will need to use a lot of it because it will otherwise quickly sink into your skin's top layers during application and cannot be rinsed off.
The aim here is to give high performance cosmeceuticals. In order for the ingredients in this type of masques to effectively perform their functions, we advise you to keep the cream masques on overnight.
What is a Gel Masque and when should I use it?
Gel masques have a gelatinous consistency and are cooling masques.
They provide the skin that "tightening" sensation and let you experience the temporary lifting or tightening of your skin in particular areas of the face.
A gel can be used as a leave-on or rinse-off product, depending on the your skin needs and preference. It can be applied to the face overnight. Gels are frequently thought of as clear, but there are also coloured and opaque gels masques that contain coloured botanical powders and extracts such as matcha, cacao, turmeric etc.
What is a Gel-to-Milk masque and how does it work?
Anhydrous masques with a unique cold process emulsifier are what are known as gel-to-milk masques. Upon coming into touch with water, they instantly emulsify and produce runny, milky water. This procedure makes it very simple for you to rinse the masque.
How many times per week should I do a facial masque?
We recommend alternating between two to three different masques and using them 1-2 times per week.
After that it is mandatory to use a serum or a moisturizer (or both) to hydrate very well your skin.
