Do Face Masks Work? 5 Instant Benefits of Magnesium Masks For Clear Skin

The anti-aging benefits of magnesium infused skin care are vast, from reducing fine lines and wrinkles to repairing the pH of the skin and eliminating acne, there is no shortage of benefits from this miracle mineral. This is why we've included it in almost all of MOONMAG products.

One of our products that contains a fair share of magnesium chloride is our MOON Masks. Face masking is one of my favorite steps in my daily skin care routine. They’re easy to apply and fun to use and are great at delivering results. My favorite thing about applying a good face mask is the feeling of tightened and toned skin after a single-use. Both men and women can benefit significantly from using a mask and here’s why:

Reason #1: Relaxation

Face masks don’t just offer results that improve the overall appearance of your skin, they can also be quite therapeutic. When they are infused with aromatic essential oils like rosemary and lavender, a face mask can lift your spirit by stimulating your senses. Using a mask should be treated as a luxury. Set aside some “me” time when you decide to give yourself a mask. Draw a hot bath, light some candles and let the magic of the mask begin to work. You’ll be drawn into a wonderful, sensory experience that will not only relax the mind and spirit but will also leave you with fabulous looking skin!

Reason #2: Deep Cleansing

Masks are incredible at providing a deep and thorough cleansing, which leads to an improvement in the appearance of pores that you can visibly see and feel. While cleansing each day helps to clean your skin by removing dirt, oil, makeup, and impurities from the surface of the skin, proper masking takes the cleansing process to a whole new level. Only a good facial mask can help draw out impurities that hide beneath the top layers of the epidermis. You will notice that your skin goes through a “detoxing” period when using a mask — especially in the beginning! Who doesn’t want that?

Reason #3: Unclog The Pores

Masking with a product that contains clay helps to remove dirt and absorbs excess oils. It’ll also help to remove the build-up of dead skin cells that accumulate on your skin. When you remove all the debris from the surface of your skin, it will unclog pores. We all know that clogged pores are nothing but trouble. Yucky stuff gets trapped in your pores and gets pushed deep down into the pore where bacteria can develop. Once that bacteria starts to grow it’s all over for our skin because we will soon get a blemish, a flurry of breakouts or even one giant pimple that will wreak havoc on our life for several days. Regular masking helps to keep your skin surface clean and pores unclogged. This is an excellent reason to go do a face mask right now!

Reason #4: Glow Getter

Masking helps stimulate blood circulation. The process of the mask drying on your skin and hardening, along with the removal of the mask, causes an expansion in the blood vessels in your skin. This ensures an overall improvement in skin tone. You’ll be left with softer-feeling and smoother-looking skin, and you’ll also notice a radiant glow and a more refreshed appearance. So, relax, feel the tingle, breathe in the aroma and wait for your skin transformation.

Reason #5: Prepares Skin For Other Products 

Masking helps all your other products to work more efficiently. It helps prepare your skin for all of your other products and even your makeup! Masking on a regular basis will ensure that your toning, hydrating and protecting products will all perform better, giving you the results you want, faster. What are you still waiting for?

Should everyone use a face mask? Absolutely. Face masks are the perfect skin care treatment to help you with your skin care concerns. The right face mask can help hydrate skin, remove excess oils and help improve the appearance of your pores. They’re also an excellent way to help pull out impurities. Another advantage of wearing a face mask: the feeling of being pampered like you’re at a spa from the comfort of your own home.

You can use our face masks once a week, or every day depending on your skin and your skin care concerns. Don't wait, start today!
