While every skincare routine is as unique as the individual, there are certain staples that create a strong foundation for healthy, vibrant looking skin. Facial masks are among the best types of products to have within your routine and as they do not have to be done a daily basis, their benefits outlast their application time.
Many of our customers relate having a facial with being at the salon or spa. While there are facials that are usually only done while being pampered at the spa, they are also not the types of facials that you would use weekly or bi-weekly. The types of facial masks that truly have the longest-lasting results for the health of your skin are those that you can apply yourself at home.
The time period for applying your facial mask will depend on you and the facial product of choice. First and foremost is your time. As most facial masks, such as the Skindulgence BioCell Mask, take about 20-30 minutes to use, you will need the available time in your day to apply them. This may be in the morning before you shower, in the evening while relaxing, or in some cases even while you sleep. Your availability will thus determine the type of facial mask you choose.
Products such as the Skindulgence BioCell Mask and even the Skindulgence Firming Facial System is suitable for all skin types, but understand that not all facial masks are. Having the wrong type of facial mask for your skin type can actually hurt your skin more than help it.
Now with the right amount of time and the correct facial mask for your skin, here are the 5 main benefits of using a facial mask on a regular basis.
Refines skin pores: Facial masks help to get clearer skin and more refined pores. It deep cleanses the pores and removes dead skin cells, metabolic wastes and the oily substances (keratin) that clogs pour and causes outbreaks.
Increases hydration: Facial masks bring moisture and hydration to any skin type. The ingredients in the facial mask penetrate deep into the skin epidermis to soften the skin and enhance its elasticity. Properly hydrated and moisturized skin not only looks and feels healthier, but makeup application is also easier. Proper hydration also gives a more plump and youthful appearance.
Diminishes fine lines: Regular use of facial masks reduces the signs of ageing features such as fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. The removal of these ageing characteristics also provides softer, smoother feeling skin.
Evens skin tone: Facial masks diminish hyperpigmentation and give you a more even skin tone and texture. In addition to a more even skin tone, the facial also promotes sweat gland secretion so as to increase the oxygen content of the skin.
Firmer skin: Loose skin can make you look older than your age. Regular use of facial masks such as the Skindulgence Firming Facial System help to enhance collagen production, fight off free radical damage and tighten and tone the muscles under your skin. This, in turn, creates firmer, tighter, younger-looking skin.
On top of those 5 great benefits to using a facial mask, there is one more. One that is less tangible to measure but very important. While you are using the facial mask, you get to relax! Rest and relaxation help in keeping your skin looking young and fresh.
