A gel mask will add to your skin’s natural glow as well as smooth out any irritations or inflammations. It does this by drawing out oils and dirt from your face and providing extra hydration for dryer skin cells. Most gel masks are great at detoxing and good ones have the benefit of antioxidants and amino-acids.
How Does a Gel Mask Work?
Facial masks are effective and good for you, because they enable beneficial ingredients to penetrate deeper into your skin. This is because they are formulated to remain on your face for 10-20 minutes. Which allows the skin time to absorb more of the product and enables increased hydration. Thereby, making a gel mask good for nourishing your skin as well as giving it an extra boost of radiance.
Benefits of a Gel Mask
Gel masks are beneficial to facial skin care routines and can be used across all skin types. They are particularly great for sensitive skins, especially if they contain ingredients such as aloe ferox or honey. For example, a mask such as Aloe Unique’s Honey and Gel mask. This gel mask has the specific advantages of honey, aloe ferox and aloin. Which means that it maximises hydration and stimulates faster and better skin repair, without making your skin oily. Thereby, enabling rejuvenation of skin, soothing of skin irritations and a more youthful facial tone. It’s naturally an anti-inflammatory and contains anti-aging properties, which can also assist with skin pigmentation challenges.
How to Use a Gel Mask
- Wash your face with your usual cleaner and pat dry.
- Spread the gel mask evenly across your face, avoiding your eyes and lips.
- Leave the mask on for 10-20 minutes.
- Using warm water, rinse your mask off then gently dry your face.
- Continue with your usual skin care moisturising routine.
When to Use Your Aloe Unique Aloe and Honey Gel Mask
Facial Gel masks can be used up to three times a week. A mask can be used in the morning or evening. If you’re looking to re-energise your skin for the day ahead, or a quick fix when you look a bit tired, then use it in the morning. Alternatively, many people find it best to use one after they have showered or bathed in the evening and are less rushed. This has the added advantage of steaming your skin ahead thereby opening your pores up before you apply your mask. Which can make the mask more effective, as beneficial ingredients can even more easily be absorbed into the skin.
Why it’s Important to Use a Mask in Winter
If you’re thinking of when to increase how many times a week you use a mask, then winter is when you should. The cooler and less sunny days give your skin a bit of a breather from more intense sun damage. Which gives you an opportunity to do some very effective remedial skin care intervention. Additionally, in many areas, winter is dryer than summer. Thus, your skin will need extra moisturising to keep it from quickly drying out, cracking or becoming irritated and inflamed. During the winter months it’s also advisable to use a richer moisturiser within your usual skin care routine.
The Advantages of Aloe Unique Products
The Aloe Unique skin care range harnesses hero-ingredients such as Aloe Ferox. Aloe ferox is even more effective than aloe vera, when it comes to rapid healing, anti-aging and soothing of skin. Aloe Unique products, such as the Aloe Unique Aloe and Honey Gel Mask, contain no harmful parabens or chemicals. This makes them suitable for use across all skin types and able to be used by those with particularly sensitive skins.
