Video: ❶ How To Choose A Mask By Skin Type
Each skin type needs an individual approach. Of course, many face masks are universal, they are suitable for everyone, but there are some that are preferable to use only on a certain skin type. Choosing a mask should be as reasonable as your basic facial skin care product. Location: Location:
Today in the world of cosmetics, you can find many masks. Very often manufacturers do not indicate on the packaging for which skin type a particular mask is intended. This is because many of them are designed to deal with specific problems. For example, a drying mask may be suitable not only for oily skin prone to inflammation. This mask can also be used by owners of dry skin to cope with sudden problems. However, there are general guidelines to consider when choosing a mask for permanent use.
Normal skin without any problems are recommended masks with the effect of toning, whitening, masks to improve the complexion. Owners of normal skin types rarely have to deal with any pronounced problems, so masks are more suitable for them, which have an overall beneficial effect on the skin.
Dry thin skin often needs intensive moisturizing and nourishment, therefore, it is necessary to choose a mask that will saturate the skin with moisture, restore water balance, make it soft and elastic. Masks for dry skin, as a rule, have the consistency of a cream, less often a gel. Often the name contains the word "Hydra". Masks of a creamy consistency can not be washed off, but only the excess of the product can be removed from the face and neck with a cloth or paper towel. In the composition of cleansing masks (exfoliants) for dry skin, it is preferable to contain not natural (ground seeds of fruits, nuts), but artificial abrasive components (polyethylene granules).
Masks for oily skin include antibacterial and drying components that help get rid of excess sebum (sebum), narrow pores by removing sebum and impurities from them, have anti-inflammatory and antiseptic effects. They are produced mainly in the form of gels. Often the basis for such masks is clay, which has increased adsorbing properties. Purifying masks with fine abrasive (natural or artificial) particles and cooling components, masks with a mattifying effect - all of them are designed for oily skin types.
For aging skin, special masks have been developed that increase the density and elasticity of the skin, improve the complexion, provide a lifting effect, and smooth out wrinkles. Such masks are not developed for a specific skin type, but for a specific age. They are anti-aging cosmetics and are not recommended for young skin. It is not necessary to accustom the skin to such "nourishment" too early.
