I don't know about you, but whenever I think of skincare masks, it takes me back to when I was younger and used to go to sleepovers where my friends and I would act out scenes from movies where girls would put on face masks, drink green juices, put sliced cucumbers on their eyes, have pillow fights... Oh! What a blast.
Don't tell me I just took you on a joyous trip down memory lane! But anyway, unlike previously, I am going to cut the blather now and get straight to the point. So, what exactly is a skincare mask?
Skincare masks are essentially nourishing, nutrient-rich products that instantly energise and revive your skin. The masks contain active ingredients that serve hydrating, brightening, and, in some cases, even correcting purposes. The reason why they hold such a significant place in the skincare world is that they give you a concentrated dose of nutrients that serum or a moisturiser would not.
Another notable feature of skincare masks is their ability to form an occlusive layer on the skin's surface. This allows nutrients to be absorbed faster and to have a lasting effect, which is why you feel refreshed and energised in just 10-15 minutes.
A mask does not necessarily play a vital part in your daily skincare routine, but when used once or twice a week, they not only provide phenomenal results but also enhances the effects of your other skincare products.
Now that you know so much about skincare masks, what they are, and the benefits of using them... Do you want to know which skincare masks are the best on the market? Continue reading if you answered yes!

Simply apply a thin layer of the Wrinkle Correcting Pro Mask 1-2 times per week and leave it on for 10 minutes, remove excess. Do not rinse completely. Your face will look younger in no time and will remain that way throughout the day.
