During the cold season, many people are more active in taking care of their skin and expanding their home beauty arsenal. But if you don’t follow certain restrictions, you can do more harm than good to your skin.
With the onset of cold weather and long fall evenings, many girls are reminded of additional facial care. And especially nourishing masks, it seems that they are so necessary during the season of increased dryness and chafing!
Nourishing masks really help to quickly get rid of the discomfort of the face and make the tone more even and healthy. Plus, they usually don’t contain acids or other ingredients that can accidentally harm your skin’s condition. That’s why some people find it necessary to pamper their face with nourishing formulas as often as possible.
But in fact, nourishing masks are not a means on their own. They need to be combined with cleansing and moisturizing masks, otherwise they can cause new problems.
The main problem that you can face because of a nourishing mask is the swelling of the face. Such formulas should not be applied before you go to sleep – otherwise the skin will not have time to “process” all the useful components that came to its surface and will answer you unpleasant puffiness after waking up.
Along with swelling, you may see new pimples and clogged pores in the morning. After all, the main task of this category of masks is to nourish the skin, no matter what condition it is in. Sometimes it is not recommended to make a nourishing mask for inflammation!
If you still want to continue using nourishing masks, follow a few rules:
- Apply them to your face a few hours before bedtime so that they have time to work.
- Apply after a thorough wash with an exfoliating brush, scrub, or gommage to make pores more receptive to new rations of ingredients
- If you have combination skin, it’s a good idea to use a nourishing mask only on certain areas of your face that aren’t prone to inflammation
- Choose mildly textured, nourishing masks that mix valuable oils with non-comedogenic ingredients, like hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and squalane.
