Our skin needs added boost on overworked days. Although creams and other beauty essentials help you achieve healthy skin, a face mask does a great job in preventing evaporation of the substance. As a result, the vitamins and other formulations penetrates the skin better, giving your skin a instant lift. Face masks are formulated to stay on the skin longer and complement other beauty products.
So you might ask, how could a face mask potentially bring side effects?
It’s simple. Here’s how.
The last thing anyone would want is a clogged pore. If your skin has many clogged pores, you’re prone to having ache and pimples sprouting on your face. Using a moisturizing face mask has higher tendency for this incident to occur because the moisturizing properties found in the mask could clog pores if it is kept on the face longer than advised. Don’t leave the mask on beyond the maximum time on the package. If you do, try not to deviate from the recommended time by more than a few minutes.
For those who suffer from oily skin, you’ll naturally opt for face mask with oil absorbing properties. The common ingredients that are great at stripping off oils from your face are charcoal and clay. Apart from absorbing excess oil from your face, these masks could leave your skin dry and flakey, an opposite result you wished for if kept on for too long. The purifying parts in these masks cause dehydration if used longer than recommended, be sure to adhere to the time on the package.
Used too often
A face mask is loaded with skin-boosting ingredients and vitamins. Using it on a daily basis is not a good idea as masks are intensive remedies. It’s recommended to apply a face mask a few times a week for a rejuvenated and well-nourished skin! Use the mask as recommended, and voilà, your skin will thank you.
