Benefits of Different Types of Facial Masks
Peel-Off/Rubber masks are great for normal to oily skin. Usually of thick consistency, you apply it by adding water to the container, mixing the mixture, and spreading it all over your face. You basically just peel it off after allowing it to dry and harden after a couple of minutes. Clean skin is healthy skin. Peel off masks adhere to the top layer of dead skin and the dirt in clogged pores. As you peel the mask off after it dries, it lifts off all the micro particles of dust and dirt, giving you radiant skin immediately!
Peel-off masks also aid in fixing skin issues with antioxidants. If you don’t know much about antioxidants, just know this, antioxidants are life! They are your best chance against free radicals that are the major cause of acne, pigmentation, dark spots and uneven complexion. Peel-off masks, regardless of the brand, tend to be vitamin, plant-based or fruit extract-based that give your skin a boost of antioxidants. They come in, do a clean sweep of the skin damage already present in your skin and help shield from future damage too.
For oily skin and skin that is prone to acne, clay masks are a sure bet as well. These masks help by balancing out the oils in the skin by tightening pores and controlling excess sebum production. Another reason that makes them ideal for this skin type is that they help soften and smoothen the surface of the skin because of their mattifying effect. Perhaps the most predominant function of medicinal clay is its ability to draw out toxicity from within the body and from the surface of the skin. Various therapeutic clays, especially bentonite clay can effectively bind to heavy metals like mercury, cadmium, lead, and benzene as well as other environmental pollutants and eliminate them from the body’s tissues. All these benefits found with clay masks works to nourish your skin, by improving skin disease, healing the skin and promoting youthful, beautiful, glowing skin.
Those with oily skin should also look for masks containing charcoal. This ingredient works by picking the excess oil on the skin, which makes you prone to breakouts and an extremely dewy face. Here are some reasons why charcoal face masks are an awesome add to your skincare regimen.
Deep Cleansing and Exfoliation
Activated charcoal face masks draw bacteria, dirt, chemicals, poisons, and other impurities from skin. Charcoal is “activated” after being infused with oxygen. Oxygenation creates a highly porous surface that increases the ability to absorb toxins. It leaves skin perfectly clean and fresh while combating acne and other skin problems. Rid pores of impurities and excess oil when you use charcoal face masks.
Reduces Appearance of Sunspots and Hyperpigmentation
Charcoal face masks reduce the appearance of sunspots and hyperpigmentation, a common problem for many after spending years in the sun. Skin looks clear, radiant, and much less red.
Tightens Pores and Reduces Inflammation
Charcoal masks also tighten pores and reduce inflammation to further create the appearance of smooth, youthful skin.
