Why Is a Mask Good for You?
What is a Facial Mask?
Facial mask is a skin care products that applies on faces. After applying for about 20 to 30 minutes, a thin film, just like a mask, will be formed tightly on the face.
However, some of the products will not form a mask even after applying on faces to get dried. They cannot be removed by taking away a whole piece of film from faces, but to be removed by washing away. Exactly speaking, these products should be called facial treatment cream. As the effect and the use of both products are just the same, so people usually call them as facial mask generally.
The Principle of Skin Care Treatment by Facial Masking.
The principle of single facial mask product is to use the short period of time covering on the face so as to separate the air and pollution from the skin temporarily.
Such helps to:
- Enhance the temperature of skin;
- Open the skin's pores;
- Increase the skin cells' metabolic rate; and,
- Promote the sweat gland secretion so as to increase the oxygen content in the skin.
It also helps in the excretion of dead epidermal cells, accumulated metabolic wastes and the oily substances from the skin that clog the pores, cause the skin to dry, and become a habitat for bad bacteria and a cause of skin aging.
The water from the mask will penetrate into the skin epidermis to soften the skin and enhance its elasticity.
The skin will be, therefore, healthy and charming.
The Truth Behind First Aid Mask.
First: Apply a moist mask on the face.
The substances inside the mask will wrap the skin tightly to isolate the skin from air outside. The water will penetrate into the epidermis of the skin and prevent losing of the water within the membrane at the same time in order to let the skin to be soft and elastic. By "covering a quilt" on the skin at the same time, it will be warmer and the capillaries will expand slowly, so the blood circulation deep inside the skin will be enhanced. With improved layers of cells, the skin will not be old nor tired anymore.
Second: At the process of applying the mask, the skin is separated from the outside air and the temperature under the skin will be increased.
The skin pores will be enlarged to promote the secretion of sweat glands, thus the external dust, chemical pollutants and microorganisms trapped inside the skin pores can be cleared. This also helps in the removal of metabolic wastes from epidermis cells and the over-accumulated oily substances as well. When the rigid form of mask is formed, those harmful "toxic" substances such as chemical pollutants, wastes, oily substances will stick with the viscous of the mask and be cleared away together with the facial masks.
Third: When the facial mask becomes a thin film on the face, the skin will become tight slowly and the increased tension leads to a good stimulation to unfold the wrinkles.
Small wrinkles will disappear while the large and deep ones will be smaller and less obvious. The face will, therefore, look much younger.
Fourth: The period of time of applying the moist mask on the face facilitates the nutritional substances to penetrate into the deep layers of skin.
At the same time, with the expansion of capillaries and the enhancement of the blood circulation, the absorption and the use of the nutritional substances will be greatly increased. Due to this excellent effect, people add these nutritional substances into facial masks in order to gain a better result.
Therefore, in addition to the above-mentioned basic effects, it also helps to strengthen or enhance a variety of effects such as elastic moisturizing, tighten the skin, whitening, prevent wrinkle and aging problem of skin, detoxification, prevent of acne and so on.
Brief History of Facial Masks.
Facial masks have a beautiful and long history. In Asia, China, Japan, and Egypt are renowned for their rich concoction of fresh herb, fruit, and flower extracts as ingredients for facial masks. In Europe, there were also the precious stones and gems, like Gold and Tourmaline, among others that were used by royalties for their skin.
However, two (2) the famous individuals who have shaped the world into facial masks are Cleopatra and Yang Gui Fei.
The famous Cleopatra often applied egg white onto her face. This creates a moisture film over the skin's surface when the egg white is dried. By washing the mask with clean water in the morning, it helps to make the skin smooth and soft and look younger that your age. This is said to be the origin of facial masking.
Cleopatra was also renowned for her love of the Aloe Vera extracts as facial masks, and even dubbed to have slept in Gold facial masks.
Yang Gui Fei, also known as Lady Yang, was the Royal in Tang Dynasty. She was famous because of her beauty and was even considered as one of the Four Great Beauties in Ancient China. Besides the priority of daily life and accommodation, her beautiful skin was also made ever more beautiful with facial masks that are specially made.
Yang Gui Fei's facial masks were not difficult to make. She has used pearl, white jade and some ginseng, ground them into fine powder and mixed them with lotus root starch. After making these ingredients together into a paste, the resulting pearl facial mask is applied onto the face, left on the skin for a while, and rinsed-off.
It was said that the resulting pearl facial mask can help to whiten the skin and to remove spots and wrinkles. It seemed to be simple and effective so many women would like to try and improve them since long time ago.

Muddy Facial Masks.
Returning to the ancient times,the use of mud in skin treatment products started from the ancient Greek and Roman times. The etchings at that time depicted people who were bathing in the mud and applying mud onto faces to have skin treatment.

Creamy Facial Masks.
Moisture, moisture and moisture, "Humid, transparent, bright" are the strengths of the Creamy facial masks .
Creamy facial masks are so good at providing moisture to the skin because it usually uses oil as its base ingredient.
Creamy facial masks usually require the help of some highly-absorbent and water-locking substances to be with some oily substances with high brightness, so as to help the skin to be visually "full". The speed for skin to fuse with other similar substances is higher than those different.
The composition of Creamy Facial Masks are mainly wrapped with oily substances which will be absorbed easier. However, the principle of applying creamy facial masks are just the same as using cream. Applying the mask on the face can just only have the outcome more efficiently. Also, creamy masks usually use bigger molecules for moisture that are more difficult for absorption for the sake of better visual effects.

The Wonderful Combination of T + U.
Here, we refer to the "T" as the T-zone, or the area of the facial skin along the forehead and the nose that is prone to too much oil and acne breakouts, while the "U" as the U-zone, or the area of the face that includes the cheeks, jawline, and chin, which tend to be dry.

Therefore this mask with overall high quality is made for tackling the problems on the 3 areas of the facial skin.

You can feel the power of Lati and your face will feel smaller. Prolong usage can improve the shape of face as well as take care of the neckís fine lines.
Misuse of Facial Masks.
Applying It Every Day.
Mask is a rich meal in skin care products. Although the effect is good, we cannot use it every day unless there are special requirements. Some masks have clearly marked the length of cycle, such as 5 days per treatment, or 3 pieces for 10 days. In order to get the best results, instructions should be strictly followed.
Applying masks 1 to 2 times a week regularly is enough for long-term use. Just imagine, no matter how good the food is, eating too much will feel full! Of course, if you want to do emergency under special circumstances, you can use it any time.
Also, applying cleansing masks every day will cause skin sensitivity or even swelling. Your immature skin loses the ability to resist the invaders; Applying nourishing masks every day can make it prone to acne. For moisturizing mask, you can use every day in dry season.
Applying Masks During Bathing.
Whether depositing masks during bath is a smart time-saving approach should depends on your mask choice.
If you desire to use facial masks during bathing, Wet Compress Mask Type is recommended, while Tearing-Type and Jelly-Type Masks are not.
That's because, for the latter, water vapor will make the mask not easy to seal with the skin. If the masks have to be dried, water vapor will affect effectiveness.
Besides masks, a current popular beauty industry facial massage cream is also very suitable for bath use. Through steam bath, it can help soften the skin.
This one is a common mistake for the eye area because the thickness of eye skin is one-fourth (1/4) of normal skin so it requires more special care.
Many masks, especially clean moisture class, contain ingredients that stimulate the weak eye skin; thus they should not be applied around the eyes. If you want to enhance eye skin care, use an eye mask.
Intensive care leads to better result, particularly when eye skin seriously lacks water and nutrition.
In fact, mask should be used continuously. It should be used at least twice a week. To achieve the best results, eye cream should be used together.
Depositing Mask-Type Mask on Neck.
Neck skin should never be ignored, because if you do, it will most likely reveal your age plus your facial skin care routine. Worse, they can ultimately become the favored site of the unwanted dryness, roughness, and wrinkles that couldn't seem to find their perfect place on your face.
You may usually have to wear a dress with a bare neck when attending important occasions. Therefore, you must start to take care of your neck a few days before.
For such case, we suggest you to:
- Deposit a moisture neck mask at least one (1) week before your special event so that your neck skin can have enough moisture; and,
- Fifteen (15) minutes before makeup, you should apply a neck mask again to fade pigmentation and even the neck skin color; then,
- Coat the moisturizing cream on the neck. After this, you can start your makeup.
Constantly following these great skin care tips can ensure you'll get even and flawless skin from your face to your neck, and to your back.
Must Not Waste the Essence in the Facial Mask.
Itís good to have the awareness of conservation but it is no meaning if you use in the wrong place! Depositing mask overtime will lead to skin dehydration and loss of nutrients.
Therefore, besides following the instructions, you can do a rough time estimation for different masks. For moderate moisture one, you may relief it after about 15 minutes to avoid the drying masks absorbing moisture from the skin. For those with high moisture, you can use for longer time. But you should remove it up to 30 minutes. If you do not want to waste the essence inside, you may apply it on other parts of your body.
Must Have a Facial Before.
Keeping the skin clean before doing the mask is necessary, but it is not necessary to scrub it every time.
Stratum corneum is skinís natural barrier and it can prevent loss in skin moisture, neutralize the pH value, etc. The metabolic cycle of stratum corneum is 28 days. That mean a number of dead cells in the stratum corneum will be metabolized every 28 days. Therefore, you shall scrub your skin at most once a month.
Exfoliating too often will also damage the cuticle. In addition, sensitive skin does not required to be scrubbed frequently.
Cannot Use Tear-Type Mask Frequently.
For tearing-type mask, use the mask to contact with the skin. While the mask is tearing away from the skin, blackheads on the skin, aging skin and fat are "stripped". It has the highest cleaning power but also the largest damage to the skin. Improper use may cause skin laxity, large pores and skin allergies.
The tearing-type mask has always been controversial. Since tearing will cause skin damage, tearing Ėtype mask are not recommenedd. Of course, the advantage of tearing-type mask is clean. If you really love this mask, keep in mind to avoid the eye and eyebrow when applying the mask, and avoid frequent use; usually once a week is enough.
Many girls see that a lot of TV shows and magazines promote creative mask DIY, or Do-It-Yourself.
Actually those masks help our skin within limits. It may just work immediately, but the effect losses already on the other day. These homemade facial masks' ingredients are natural and does not go through science and technology process. The molecules are too large to be absorbed by the skin. Although it is interesting and cheap, it is not effective. You should consider wisely.
Oily Skin with A Cleansing Mask.
Masking is important for girls with oily skin. You can choose from three types of mask, that's:
- Oil-inhibiting masks;
- Deep-cleansing masks; and,
- moisturizing mask.
In dry season, skin will become oily and dry. You can select one day in a week to do oil control and moisture mask, then do deep cleaning and moisturizing mask one week after.
Mask Should Not Be Too Thin.
Do we need to apply a thick layer of mask? Yes!
Deposited thick mask on face increases the skin temperature and promote blood circulation. Nutrients can spread into the cell better. The water that can not evaporate will be retained in the epidermis and keeps the skin smooth and tight. Thermal effect will soften the skin, expand the pores and let the accumulated dirt inside discharge.
