Face Mask Benefits & Your Skin Care Routine

Face Mask Benefits

When it comes to your skin care routine, face masks may not be necessary, but they’re certainly beneficial.

The right face mask can hydrate skin, remove excess oils or help improve the appearance of pores. Which is definitely worth 10-20 minutes of your time once or twice a week. Plus, a little self-pampering goes a long way for your overall wellbeing.

5 Face Mask Benefits


While the main purpose of a face mask is to care for your skin, they can offer so much more. Especially when you treat it as a little luxury instead of just another step in a skin care routine. After applying your mask, take the time in between to do something that relaxes you, whether that’s meditating, reading or scrolling through your news feeds, this is about taking time to indulge yourself. Just sit back, relax and let the mask work its magic.

Clear your Pores

Clogged pores are often the result of dead skin cells getting trapped in your skin instead of being shed into the environment. But other factors such as toxins in the air, sweat or oils from your hands transferring to your face, are also contributing factors. Whiteheads, blackheads or a dullness to your skin’s complexion are signs of clogged pores. Face masks help because they bind to impurities and remove debris clogging your pores as they’re rinsed or peeled away.

Deep Cleanse

Daily cleansing removes dirt, oil, makeup and impurities from the surface of the skin. But face masks offer a deeper cleanse. There are two main reasons behind this: because your face has already been cleansed when you apply a mask and because masks stay on the skin longer, drawing impurities up and out from deeper layers of the skin.

Glowing Skin

Talking about face mask benefits we’d be remiss to not mention the after-mask glow! And it’s not just from a fresh clean face and relaxation. The process of applying the mask, letting it dry and removing it, circulates blood in the face. This stimulation leads to healthier, more radiant looking skin, not too mention it’ll also look and feel smoother and softer.

Beyond the Mask

Healthy, hydrated skin and unclogged pores allow your other skin care products to work more effectively. This is because they can be absorbed quicker and deeper by your skin. So toning, hydrating and moisturizing products are able to perform better, giving you the results you want with less product.
