 how to apply a face mask


You've probably succumbed to the hype around face masks or at least tried them once. The boom of this product in the beauty world is no coincidence. The concentrated action of this treatment comes in handy to reinforce your daily facial routine for flawless, healthy skin. But, admit it, how many times do you use a mask during the week/month? Do you know when to use them in your beauty routine? And which one is the most suitable for your skin? If you can't answer all these questions, don't worry, we're going to help.

If you want to see real results in your skincare, you need to be consistent. That is the key. It's not enough to follow two daily beauty routines (morning and evening). Add a weekly routine for special treatments. Take it as one more task of the week and assign specific days to these treatments so you don't forget them. For example: Tuesdays = exfoliation, Wednesdays and Sundays = face mask. Because yes, this product should be used once or twice a week to improve the appearance of your skin.

Application and tips for use

Once you have established the schedules for your beauty routine, you should know when to apply a face mask, that is, in which step of your routine you should introduce it. Everything has its own process and for products to have the desired effect on the skin, they should be applied from least to most dense.

In this regard, face masks are used after facial cleansing and toning, and before the serum, moisturizer and eye contour. This will guarantee spectacular results.

Just spread a thin layer on freshly cleansed and toned skin, from the center of the face outwards, and finish with a small massage with upward movements on the neck. In the morning, your skin will feel smoother and brighter.

Which face mask is best for my skin?

Detox, moisturizing, repairing... there are as many face masks on the market as there are skincare needs throughout the year. Because not all faces are the same and do not need the same treatment at the same time. Have you ever thought that maybe you’re not using the mask that your skin really needs?

Urban skin with open pores: detox mask

Do you live in the city and lately you’ve noticed that your face is dull, with more pimples than usual? Your skin feels suffocated and is crying out for a detox treatment to eliminate the impurities of urban pollution, reduce pores and restore lost radiance.

A detoxifying face mask such as Aqua Pure Flash Mask, deeply infuses skin with intense skin hydration, powered by the combination of Salicylic Acid and Life Plankton water, for pure skin in one application. One sheet mask is enough to deeply replenish and refine your skin, with pores appearing tighter, less visible and skin looking purified and fresh.

Apply your salicylic acid sheet mask on cleansed skin every week or whenever your skin needs it the most. Aqua Pure Flash Mask is part of a moisturizing sheet masks trio, the Aqua Flash Masks, designed to give a flash of skin hydration to your urban skin. On days when your skin needs it most, combine your favorite Aqua Flash sheet Mask with any Aqua Super Concentrate.

Dull and extra-dry skin: nourishing mask

Who doesn't need a little extra hydration sometimes? If your skin feels tight and lacking in radiance, it's time to apply a nourishing mask to restore optimal moisture levels and give it an extra boost of radiance. And the best time to do this is undoubtedly at night. While we sleep, our skin is more awake than ever. Regeneration is faster and the skin works harder, so moisture loss is four times greater.

Aquasource Night Spa is a night balm for deep moisture replenishment and intense skin hydration overnight. It is the ultimate night-time spa experience to replenish moisture levels while you sleep. Aquasource’s iconic moisture formula is captured within an ultra-rich, leave-on texture of a mask. Wake up to skin deeply replenished with water, smoothed and soothed. Night after night, skin is transformed, dehydration lines are evened out, complexion looks fresher, skin is water-plumped.

Damaged and red skin: repairing mask

Does your complexion sometimes feel... saturated? With redness, tightness, a feeling of discomfort or dullness? It's a feeling similar to that caused by prolonged exposure to the sun (when you haven't used enough protection). For those moments, you need a face mask to repair the damage to your skin and restore the feeling of radiance and softness.

The Life Plankton™ mask provides extra help to repair damage from external aggressors (sun, air, dry environments, etc.). This refreshing gel is enriched with Life Plankton™ from the pure thermal springs of the South of France. A real skin-boosting active ingredient that works overnight so you wake up with smooth, glowing skin the next morning. You can use it twice a week.
