Mask or exfoliation, which to choose?

Imperfections, dull complexion, skin sagging... the external environment can impair the quality of your skin. To improve its condition, it is appropriate to adopt a suitable skincare routine. Masks and exfoliators are allies in preserving the health of your skin. The question that arises is: which of these treatments should you choose? Let's focus.

What are the benefits of the mask?

Applying a face mask allows you to rejuvenate your skin and to eliminate minor imperfections : dull complexion, blackheads, spots, shiny skin, etc... This treatment thus deeply addresses specific skin concerns with concentrated formulas. There are different types of masks depending on your skin type and its condition: hydrating, nourishing, purifying, brightening, firming, etc.

Each mask thus exhibits specific characteristics depending on the needs of your skin. Moreover, there are different mask textures. The most well-known are those in cream form, which are suitable to leave on for about ten minutes. You will also find single-use fabric masks that contain the exact dose of product.

What are the benefits of exfoliation?

The exfoliation is a facial treatment that is recommended to be performed once to twice a week. The primary function of this product is to exfoliate the skin, that is, to remove impurities and dead cells present on the surface of the epidermis. As a result, the skin texture becomes smoother and refined, and the complexion is brighter and more even.

In addition to exfoliating the skin, scrubbing helps topurify the skin and unclog the pores. This allows the sebum to flow properly, thus preventing the appearance of blemishes (blackheads, pimples, etc.). Moreover, the exfoliant promotes microcirculation of the blood , which enhances the skin's radiance and stimulates the regeneration of the epidermis. Scrubbing also allows for a better penetration of other applied treatments.

Mask or exfoliant: which one to choose?

There is no choice to be made, as masks and scrubs are complementary. Before applying your mask, consider performing a mechanical or chemical exfoliation which will rid your skin of dirt and dead surface cells. This step will thus optimise the effects of the mask you apply afterwards.

Instead of choosing, incorporate these two treatments into your daily beauty routine. In conclusion, there is no need to choose between a mask and a scrub due to their complementarity. Indeed, performing a scrub enhances the virtues of your mask, hence the interest in combining these two treatments.
