Now that we’ve been wearing masks for a couple years, it’s time to put on some fun ones. Not only can you enjoy a spooky mask for Halloween, but try out some of these not-too-spooky masks for a powerful skincare treatment.
What Masks Do & How They Work
Masks are specifically designed to be applied for a short time and then rinsed off. Because of this, they usually contain stronger active ingredients than leave-on products like serums and moisturizers. They provide fast-acting, intensive treatment, and they don’t need to be used daily to see remarkable results.
There are two main types of masks: hydrating and clarifying.
Hydrating masks provide powerful moisture for skin, rejuvenating it down to even the deepest levels. They heal and revitalize the skin to make it plumper and firmer, and they maintain overall cell health for a more youthful glow.
Clarifying masks are excellent at clearing debris, dead skin and excess oil from both the skin surface and pores. Not only does this exfoliation make skin appear more vibrant by eliminating blackheads and reducing hyperpigmentation, but it also helps to prevent acne and promote skin health.
Whether it’s hydrating or clarifying, the potent active ingredients in masks absorb deeply into pores to treat even the innermost layers of skin to provide immediate results. Cosmedical offers masks of both types in retail and professional back-bar sizes.
