When you have to stay at home during the period of independent quarantine at home until the time limit determined by your local government, it helps you pay attention not only to the health of your body but also the beauty of your skin. In fact, this is the most time you can take care of your skin. There are several responses in skincare, one of which is the use of masks.
Masks for skin beauty now have a variety of types. There is a type of sheet mask that is a mask in the form of sheet-shaped face with holes in the eyes, nose and mouth. This mask usually contains a special serum depending on skin needs. There is also a type of peel-off mask that is a mask that was originally gel liquid and when it dries on your face, you can pull it off. There is also a type of ordinary mask made of powder that is applied to the face and dries later you just have to clean your face.
There are many benefits if you regularly use a mask. Here are 5 of them.
1. Reducing wrinkles
Masks that contain vitamin C and lycopene are good for tightening your facial skin. If you are currently limited to buying it outside the home, you can make it yourself from papaya and pineapple. Blend the papaya and pineapple, stir until it becomes a paste. Use once a week to treat skin firmness and make your face brighter.
2. Remove black spots
Choose a mask with lemon content if you have a lot of dark spots. If you don’t find it, lemon juice can be used to make a mask that can fade the dark spots on the face. The content of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) in lemons can help exfoliate the skin so that it is replaced with new skin. Mix lemon juice with ½ tablespoon of oatmeal and egg white, stir until it becomes a paste and apply on face once a week.
3. Cure acne
Choose a mask with ingredients that reduce acne and help exfoliate and anti-inflammatory. This content is usually present in turmeric. Turmeric contains anti-inflammatory which can shrink pores and help cure acne. You can make your own natural mask to treat acne. If you don’t have turmeric at home, you can use a powder containing Salicyc Acid and Zinc Oxide to cure your zits. Dissolve the powder with enough water until it becomes a paste.
4. Moisturize the skin
For this type of sheet mask, there are already many that contain aloe vera which helps soothe and moisturize the skin. If you don’t have time to buy a sheet mask, you can use honey instead.
5. Reducing oil production
You can choose the product that suits your skin type. If your skin type is oily, be sure to choose the type of mask that is suitable for removing oil on the face.
