Do Face Masks and Lifting Patches Work?

Moisturizing face masks are designed to provide your skin with the nutrients it needs to keep it youthful and soft. Best of all, unlike face exercises, they can be worn and then forgotten about while still giving you beautifying results.

What Are Face Masks for?

The idea behind anti-wrinkle face masks and patches is simple: they’re meant to worn so that your skin maintains its elasticity and vibrancy. They also give your skin glow for a natural, healthy look. This beauty tool is meant to your face supple texture, reduce wrinkles, and moisturize to give your skin the vibrancy you want. If you want perkier skin and a slimmer face, moisturizing face masks are a perfect way to relax while also treating your skin to much-needed nutrients.

Common Ingredients in Face Masks

What gives face masks their powerful rejuvenating effect? Well, it depends on the mixture of the mask itself.

  • Hyaluronic acid: absolutely critical in maintaining skin hydration. Our bodies produce this naturally, however, most of us need a little beautifying boost.
  • Collagen: the most common protein in your body and commonly used to tighten skin in face masks.
  • PHA (gluconolactone): the most gentle exfoliant of them all. Cleanses and removes all that dirt you can’t see.
  • Beta carotene: a precursor to vitamin A, beta carotene is a natural antioxidant and replenishes damaged skin.

Of course, some face masks also boast other ingredients like Vitamin C, certain aloes, and other natural mixtures that give the face its glow.

Although face masks and patches are not a replacement for jawline or face exercise since they do not develop your muscles or necessarily tone your face, they’re still incredibly important to maintaining your beauty. Therefore, if you’re looking to tone your face with face or jawline exercises, we suggest also incorporating these face masks and patches into your daily beauty routine.
