Hydrating Face Masks

Skin Care Face Masks:

What do facial masks do?

When your skin needs something extra, beyond your daily skin care routine, it’s time to reach for a facial mask. Beauty masks bring the power—namely, powerful, concentrated ingredients that target your specific skin needs. There are masks for congested and enlarged pores, dull skin, oily skin, dry skin, or combination skin. There are different types of formulas including soothing gel masks, oil control powder masks, mattifying clay masks, under eye masks, magnetic masks, and hydrating sheet masks.

Are overnight face masks good for dry skin?

An overnight face mask is an excellent solution for dry skin. Nighttime is when our bodies rest, rejuvenate and rehydrate and an overnight mask will boost those functions and help you wake up with glowing skin. Overnight face masks are packed with nourishing and hydrating ingredients, such as the hyaluronic acid, ceramides and peptides contained in the Holy Hydration Sleep Face Mask. Overnight masks are typically rich and creamy in consistency and can be used once or twice a week. They also serve double-duty as rinse-off masks if you need an instant infusion of skin goodness.

Should I apply moisturizer before a mask?

It’s best to apply a hydrating mask before you moisturize, to allow the mask’s super-power ingredients to penetrate into the skin. The most effective order of application when masking is to thoroughly cleanse and exfoliate your skin, then apply the mask. After removing the mask, apply moisturizer and sunscreen to extend hydration and protect your skin.

Should I wash my face after applying a facial mask?

There is no need to wash your face after removing a facial mask. Ideally you will have cleansed your skin to prepare it for the mask. Then, the mask’s ingredients will have penetrated deep into your skin so you don’t have to cleanse again. Finish using your favorite moisturizer and sunscreen.

What is the difference between a sheet mask and a face mask?

A sheet mask is a cloth sheet that is soaked with concentrated ingredients like the aloe. It has holes for your eyes, nose, and mouth. Simply lay the mask on your face, relax for about 20 minutes and then throw mask away. Do not use the mask twice. The ingredients will have penetrated into your skin and left it soothed and radiant.

A facial mask is typically a cream or a gel formula that is applied to the surface of the skin. It can be left on for 10 to 20 minutes or overnight as a sleep mask, and then removed with a damp sponge or cloth. It will infuse your skin with beneficial ingredients, selected for your skin type and concerns.

What is the best facial mask for skin?

The past few years have seen an influx of facial masks in the skincare arena. With so many options to choose from, it can be difficult to discern the most efficacious formulas. The key is finding a facial mask formulated with proven ingredients targeting your specific skin type and concern. For example, a mask packed with rich, hydrating ingredients is not recommended if you have acne-prone skin with excess oil. Additionally, if you have combination skin or multiple skin concerns, you may want to “multi-mask” or apply several masks on different areas of your face to address targeted concerns by zone.

It is always best to work with a skincare professional who can assess your skin needs and provide you with a personalized product recommendation.
