What are the face masks?
Modern cosmetology offers manyvarious masks for the face. Cleansing, narrowing pores, clarifying, toning, nourishing, promoting rejuvenation ... Based on their composition, you can choose for yourself a product in accordance with the requirements, age and type of skin. By the way of applying the mask there are different. Choose the most convenient means for yourself. The most common mask in the form of a homogeneous mass, which are applied to the skin for a certain time, and then washed off. Some cosmetics require a three-stage application, that is, after drying of the first layer, a second, then a third, is added. Masks on a fabric basis are becoming more popular now. They are a napkin moistened with a special cosmetic product that is applied to the face. After the necessary time has elapsed, the tissue mask should be removed and rinsed with water. These masks are very convenient to use, but quite uneconomical. A good alternative to such a cosmetic means are masks - films that have a number of advantages and advantages. It is on this type of face masks that special attention should be paid.
The principle of the mask-film
The mask-film in its consistence is similar toliquid clear gel. It is applied a thin layer on the skin. As it dries, the mask forms a thin film on the face, which can be easily removed. Such cosmetics have different properties. Thanks to the components they contain, they nourish the skin with useful substances. And the method of application allows you to smooth out wrinkles and to cleanse the skin and pores from contamination.
Rules for the use of film facial masks
On how exactly the rules are observedapplication of mask - film, the final result depends. Before applying it, the face must be cleaned of the contaminants accumulated on the skin. You can use a scrub to improve the effect of the mask or lightly steam up your face. Useful substances are much better absorbed into the skin, cleared of dust and keratinized particles. A special feature of the mask - facial film is that, before applying it to your face, you should always lubricate the skin with some oil, previously slightly warmed. For this purpose, any cosmetic oil is suitable: apricot, almond, grape, wheat germ oil, etc. This step is necessary in this procedure. Oil not only serves as an additional source of nutrition and moisturizing the dermis. Thanks to him, the mask will be removed easily, which will protect the skin from microdamages. Thus, the mask - film, applied to the oil base, acts more sparingly and more efficiently. The next step is directly applying the mask. Squeeze a small amount of gel onto the fingertips and lightly apply a thin layer on the face from the bottom up. Avoid the area around the eyes. There the skin is very thin and sensitive. Do not apply the mask around the lips. In this area there is an easy fluff that will break out along with the film. Therefore, removing the mask from this place is quite unpleasant. After applying the mask, take a comfortable pose. It's better to lie down and relax. Try not to talk and do not strain the facial muscles of the face. The holding time of such a mask, like any other, is usually about 20 minutes. But it can vary depending on the temperature and humidity of the air. The mask should dry completely, so that it can easily be removed with a continuous film. However, take care not to over-rest the cosmetic on your face. Otherwise, the film will be difficult to remove. In order not to miss the moment when it's time to remove the mask, periodically touch the face with your fingertips. The film should not stick. So you easily determine the time when you need to free your face from the mask. Once the mask is dry enough, gently remove it from the bottom up, grabbing the edge of the film at the chin. Thorough washing after applying the mask - no film is required. It's enough to wipe your face with a cotton disc or a tampon moistened with a little warm water. After the procedure, lubricate the face with a tonic and favorite cream, which you use constantly.
