For many women, face masks are a favorite beauty treatment * I have to be honest I love face masks too , sometimes I can't wait for the kids to go to bed so I can run to the bathroom to apply mine evening treatment), because it's wonderful to forget all your daily worries for at least twenty minutes and enjoy a moment of relaxation!

However, choosing a face mask is not as simple as it might seem at first. It should be adapted to your facial skin type: dry, oily, normal or combination skin. The wrong mask can not only cause unwanted consequences.

However, if the choice of a face mask is made based on the type of skin on the face, its use will help smooth out wrinkles, get rid of shine or excessive dryness, allowing the face to shine.

Specialists have classified the masks according to their functional application, consistency and other parameters.

Although the most popular are nourishing, moisturizing, cleansing and whitening masks, their functional division is much wider.

This time we take a look at the most popular of face masks.

Cleansing masks

The main function of these masks is to rid the skin of dirt. Apart from their main cleansing function, they also remove dead skin cells, improve the blood supply of the skin, which in turn supplies oxygen to the skin, leaving the skin matte, fresh and radiant.

This mask is recommended to be applied to the face once a week. Cleansing masks are suitable for all face types, but it should be remembered that oily skin needs more frequent cleansing than dry and normal skin. As the skin ages, the frequency of using the mask should be increased.

It is recommended to use a nourishing or moisturizing mask after the cleansing mask. This is due to the fact that the cells are activated after the cleansing procedure and absorb nutrients better.

Nourishing face masks

The main task of these masks is to maintain skin health - to provide it with the necessary minerals and vitamins. There are many natural ingredients that have the necessary nourishing properties for different skin types.

For owners of oily skin, it is recommended to replace nourishing masks with moisturizers - they will provide the skin with vitamins and minerals, without making the skin oily.

Moisturizing face masks

Masks are indispensable for women with dry and sensitive skin, which is prone to dehydration and peeling, because moisturizing masks are able to restore the moisture balance in the skin.

With the help of moisturizing masks, it is possible to soften the skin and restore its firmness, eliminate signs of irritation and refresh the complexion.

Peeling masks

The skin needs regular cleansing, because without removing dead cells, the formation of new cells is not possible. The stratum corneum of the skin hinders proper blood circulation, prevents the formation of collagen and promotes the deepening of existing wrinkles, so masks that promote the separation of dead skin cells provide a noticeable effect.

Exfoliating masks are based on abrasive particles that help the horn layer peel off, but these particles need to be fine, especially if your skin is sensitive.

Exfoliating masks also tone the skin, normalize the metabolism in its cells and improve blood circulation.

Whitening masks

These masks are meant to lighten the skin on the face. Masks are used to reduce pigmentation spots, freckles and smooth out the complexion. Whitening masks should be applied to the face in the evening before going to bed to avoid exposure to sunlight immediately after application.

When using whitening masks, special attention should be paid to UV protection.

Toning masks

Their effect is focused on the active supply of oxygen to the skin cells. The mask improves blood circulation, causing a temporary rush of blood. Toning masks often contain various essential oils and plant components.

Lifting masks

Their main task is to correct the oval of the face or reduce the double chin. The masks tighten the skin and give it firmness, so it is very suitable for sagging skin. On the surface of the skin, the mask forms a dense shell that easily tightens the skin and tightens it. To achieve the maximum effect, lifting masks should be applied in the form of a course of about 20 procedures.

Mask application

Masks must be applied along the lines of the face, this can be done with a brush, sponge, cotton swab or fingers.

A spatula is used to remove the thick mask, but moisturizing and nourishing masks should be removed with cosmetic wipes or a dry cotton towel to avoid stretching the skin and putting too much pressure on it, as the skin is easily injured. It is recommended to use the mask once or twice a week.

NOTS Proposals .

Nots shop offers amazing face masks, of which I have tried all of them and I am really very surprised.

I recommend trying "Rehabilitating" peel-off mask with coconut and vanilla. It has a fantastic scent, full of natural minerals and vitamins.

And another face mask that is indispensable for every woman - Anti-aging peel-off mask with hyaluron. It's like a water bomb for your face and provides hydration.

Both masks also have the wonderful property of cooling. Wake up tired skin and you'll feel wonderfully refreshed.

Another beautiful thing is that these peel-off masks are offered to you as a powder to be mixed with water in a paper cup. As the content is enough for 7 applications, you save a lot of plastic packaging and still shine with your beautiful face.
