We Have Masks. Here’s a Breakdown of a Few.

Posted on

Labels aren’t meant to confuse us but at times marketing seems to; hydrating, exfoliating, brightening, anti-aging, and so on. They can become overwhelming. Our brows furrow and we wonder, which mask is for us today? Let’s explore some masks you will come in contact with most often.

Detoxifying

Generally formulated with clay, these types of masks can vary in active ingredients that increase the effectiveness of therapeutic action. They’re great for your T-zone and oily skin. In about 10-15 minutes you’ll find that it helps with mattifying the face and pulling out excess build up, oils, and impurities. Your pores will appear more refined and the skin will feel tightened and clean after rinsing.

Moisturizing

So many masks claim to moisturize so what’s a safe bet? You may see a list of vitamins and the words hyaluronic acid often. All great signs for a quick surge of moisture but try to stay clear of emollients and mineral oils which can clog up the pores, especially after mixing with debris and makeup during the day. Whether it comes in the form of a sheet, overnight, or rinse off mask, they are meant to restore moisture to the skin by binding more water molecules together and providing rich nutrients that quickly reveal softer, more luminous skin. If you are experiencing redness, dry patches, or flaking, this is a good place to start!

Brightening

Cell turnover can slow down and life’s activities can pull us away from paying attention to skin that’s becoming dull. Brightening masks usually have ingredients that are meant to promote skin renewal alongside other active ingredients that moisturize. Vitamin C, for example, is used quite often in brightening masks. It’s usually user friendly, and prolonged use can prove to be quite beneficial. You will notice a more vibrant complexion. Do not confuse them with exfoliating masks though, which is described below.

Exfoliating

Exfoliating masks are meant to remove more dead skin using a chemical or physical ingredient. Chemical exfoliators (salicylic, glycolic acid, etc) dissolve the cells while physical exfoliators (brush, scrubs, etc) slough off the surface layer through manual labor. The end result is a new brighter you, ready to take in moisture more effectively.
