on your skin.

Difference between a face pack and a face mask or peel

Face masks and face packs are basically used for facial purposes. They both function similarly but in a nature that are different from each other. Face masks are unsettling and are usually used for dry skin. Face packs are basically settling masks which take longer to dry.

The skin gets cleaned for a particular duration when you use face masks that are prepared naturally by adding the components which the skin lacks. They remove the dead skin and give a glowing effect.

All peel off products come under this category.

Face packs that are used at night time

Night masks or sleeping packs, however, are a relatively new concept. They are basically worn just like night cream in exponentially more powerful ways. They contain all of the nourishing and hydrating ingredients of a night cream but also repair, brighten and work as anti age agents while sealing in all the treatments from whichever serums you layer underneath.

Acne and face packs

Acne is a skin care problem that cannot be avoided. Getting rid of those red bumps and pimples can be tricky.

A good face pack that will control all this will help reduce the formation of acne and leave your skin looking smooth and radiant.

Raising your face after using a face mask

Whether you need to raise your face after using a face mask or not depends on the face mask you are using. Some are meant to be left to sit for a certain period of time, letting the remaining products massaged into your face. Others must be washed off after a specified time period. For example a mask for acne or clarifying masks are too strong to be left on indefinitely and if they are left on for longer than they should be, they can irritate your skin or dry out your skin. The kinds that are sometimes ok to be left on without rising off are typically more moisturizing. It all depends on the product you use.

Lighten your skin tone using face packs

Dark and dull pigmented skin can be caused by a lot of factors such as over exposure to the sun, pollution or even stress. A fair and flawless skin complexion is a dream many women possess. Many women use various types of masks to make their skin tone lighter. Some of these masks may be harmful to the skin. So it is very important for you to use a product that will lighten your skin over a period of a time than in one or two allocations. Use a quality face mask and you will be able to reap beneficial results.
