The point is that masks normally contain very active ingredients in a relatively large proportion. This is what allows masks to have an instant (albeit short) effect, and that is why they should be used in the morning, before makeup. They warm up the skin and saturate it with all the necessary elements.
If you constantly apply such potent substances, the result may not be the most joyful one: the substances will not have enough time to be absorbed or removed from the surface of the skin. They will mix with one another. In this case, their behavior is generally difficult to predict, but it will be exactly one of these options: redness, clogging of pores, or inflammation.
For example, if you constantly apply cleansing masks with charcoal, you can cause peeling even of oily skin, which does not seem vulnerable to such problems. Those who do not notice the deterioration immediately (or cannot identify its source) will observe a more general effect – the skin will become more sensitive. So, trying to correct the flaws of your skin, you can bring it to even more terrible consequences.
How often can skin masks be used?
If you have basic skin care products, the use of masks should be reduced to 1-2 times per week. At least that is what dermatologists say. If there is no time for creams, lotions, serums and suchlike products, but you still want an instant result, you can safely increase the “dose” to three times per week.
At the same time, you should not expect a mask to work miracles. It may seem that the mask does not bring the desired effect: it does not moisturize well enough, almost does not clean and does not have that magical lifting effect. It means that it is time to move on to more effective daily use products or cosmetic procedures.
