The Pros and Cons of Facial Masks

Adding a facial mask to your daily skincare routine nourishes your skin as it is packed with a concentrated serum and other active ingredients that can help with rejuvenation. Some facial masks are even used after extraction facials to soothe the skin! 

Though such masks have skin-boosting benefits, they should be used properly for maximum effectiveness. If you have unknowingly made a mistake, then it may do more harm than good to your skin. Continue reading to discover the pros and cons of facial masks. 

Pros

  • Deeply Hydrates Your Skin

As we age, our skin may start to dry easily. The skin tends to lose its elastin fibres and collagen, making it difficult to lock in moisture. One way you can keep your dry skin hydrated is to use a facial mask every day. Facial masks have vitamins and minerals that moisturise the skin. 

However, for a skin-deep treatment, it is recommended to get a facial treatment at least once a month by a dermatologist or at an aesthetic clinic. Beyond applying a facial mask for hydrating the skin, facial treatments also include an extraction facial procedure that helps with the removal of blackheads and whiteheads.   

  • Get Glowing Skin!

Some facial sheet masks contain Vitamin C and other plant and fruit extracts that help brighten the skin! It helps with minor blemishes and dark spots, which makes the skin glow and keeps you looking fresh! For those with tired, dull-looking skin, using a facial sheet mask to achieve that glowing look becomes ideal. 

  • Controls Oil

If oiliness is a major skin problem, then consider using facial sheet masks. Some masks are effective for controlling oil on the skin as they absorb the excess sebum. Moreover, they help remove dead skin cells and unclogs the pores, which lessens the likelihood of acne to occur. 

For those with severe acne, it is still best to seek a comprehensive acne treatment in Singapore to minimise the appearance of acne scars and prevent acne from forming. 

  • Promotes Relaxation

Last but not least, facial sheet masks promote relaxation. Aside from generating radiant results that improve the complexion of your skin, they  are also capable of stimulating blood circulation to enhance calmness and relaxation.  

Cons

  • You Need to Have More Facial Masks

You might need to hoard facial mask sheets for daily use as they tend to be more effective when included in your everyday skincare routine. Their skin-hydrating effects may wear off as your skin’s condition changes every day. Thus, getting a customised treatment facial at least once or twice a month is still the preferred option. 

  • A Prescribed Time Limit to Follow

Be careful not to leave the mask for long periods as it may dry your skin. The mask sheet would suck the remaining moisture, thus leaving your skin dry and dull.  For best results, leave it on for about 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Bacteria May Spread Easily

If you are not careful, you could potentially be spreading more bacteria on your facial mask sheet. Instead of using your bare hands, you may want to purchase a mask applicator brush. It is a safe method to make sure no bacteria comes into contact with the face. 
Although facial sheet masks can work wonders on the skin, taking the time to incorporate it to your daily skincare routine requires effort and consistency. For less hassle and a more effective facial treatment, visit Indulgence Beauty and check out our  MD Dermatics products!
