Is a mask a day recommended?
By all means, yes if you have the time and dedication.
Great for aging, dry skin
Using a sheet mask, a day can boost the skin’s hydration levels and further push ingredients into the skin. Sensitive, ageing and normal to dry skin types will benefit from such regime.
Types of masks
The ideal types of masks should be preservative-free and glycolic acid-free. Some “anti-ageing” sheet masks are formulated with exfoliating acids which are too strong for daily use and can cause irritation.
Healthsprings’ Bio Cellulose Crystal White Mask uses the mask made of bio cellulose – a natural fibre with a diameter of 20 nanometers (1000 times thinner than human hair). It contains ingredient of white tomato that helps to lighten the skin. It infuses and locks in long-lasting moisture to dry and parched skin, as is especially recommended to use after laser and aesthetic treatments to repair the skin.
How about a home-made cucumber mask?
Cucumber is made of 96 percent water — which means HYDRATION.
Cucumber contains vitamin C and can help in revitalizing skin. It’s also great to cool and soothe the skin especially in this hot weather.
However, those with acne-prone skin should avoid daily masking as this may block pores and cause bacteria to grow on the skin.
While a mask a day can ultimately achieve soft, supple and radiant skin, masks should be used as a skin supplement and has a long way to go if seen as an aesthetic treatment substitute.
