When fighting the battle against acne, you need to be selective in the type of facial mask you use because of the delicate balance of pH of your skin. You should look at the ingredients, the different types of benefit for your skin, a complete skin care package with complementary products, and pay attention to what works for you.
If you recall from our blog, How Masks and Deep Cleansers Unclog Pores and Remove Blackheads, “Masks are an advanced part of anyone's beauty regime. Often overlooked by novices or the time-strapped, masks can be viewed as a "booster shot" for your skin - especially during the times where you are stressed and the skin pumps out extra oil and increases skin cell turnover to compensate.”
Looking at the ingredients is a good place to start. We’ve blogged a lot about the benefits of Tea Tree Oil--Tea Tree Oil and balancing extracts help to deep cleanse, purify and regulate excess oil production. Regular use helps to unclog pores, keep inflammation in check and energize skin's natural exfoliation cycle for radiant, healthier-looking, clearer skin.
Masks can also come in a clay base. Once applied, the mask dries on the skin, and once washed off, removes all of the dry skin cells with it. This enables your skin to "breathe" again.
Masks featuring the latest in skin care technology with peptide and liposome complex infused with Tea Tree Oil, Alphasomes®, Cinnamon Bark Extract and Rosmarinic Acid, such as Doctor D. Schwab Controlling Mask with Tea Tree Oil, help to keep oil-production under control, all day long.
Alphasomes® are created from Liposomes, which are tiny artificially prepared bubbles made up of a lipid bilayer that are used to deliver ingredients to the targeted area. They can be composed of naturally-derived phospholipids which mimic the properties of biological cells.
These spherical structures are useful because they can encapsulate active ingredients and are therefore used in skin care and for drug delivery. The Liposomes effectively deliver the active ingredients to the sites of action by fusing with the similarly structured biological cells.
“If what you put on the skin doesn’t get to the intended location, it certainly won’t have the desired activity,” stated Jon Packer, President of Centerchem.
Weekly mask treatments are a great addition to your daily skin regimen, so go for it. Just be sure to do a little homework first.
