In the realm of skincare, face masks have taken the beauty world by storm in recent years. One type of mask known as the bubble mask has some uniquely interesting properties. Unlike sheet masks or creams that just sit on your face until they dry and then are rinsed off, bubble masks grow in size after application while producing millions of tiny oxygen bubbles. But what are these masks, and what exactly do they do?
You might think these bubbling masks are just a fad, but they are actually specially designed to improve your complexion and radiance. Once the mask is applied to your skin and exposed to air, it begins to create a thick, foaming sensation. This is a product of the ingredients reacting with the oxygen in the air, making tons of tiny bubbles that tingle on your face. Many versions contain activated charcoal, a substance well-known for cleaning out pores and removing dead skin cells. Others might also include gentle buffing materials that will also exfoliate your skin while the bubbles are working.
Aside from feeling light and tingly, bubble masks work hard to remove impurities from your skin. They can remove dirt and oil which results in cleaner, clearer, and smoother skin. With regular application, you should see improved overall skin tone and clarity. They're also a lot of fun to use. You can literally watch the bubbles form on your face as the mask begins to grow in size. As each tiny bubble forms and pops, it's reaching deep down into your pores to clean them out.
There are plenty of manufacturers selling these popular masks, so be sure to follow the directions on your mask to ensure the best results. You'll want to thoroughly wash and dry your face before application so you can ensure that the bubbles will reach deep down into the pores. Gently spread the mask all over your face and neck, being careful to avoid the eye area. Allow the mask to sit and follow the specific time as laid out in the instructions. Sit back, relax, and let its oxygenating properties take over. Once the time is up, you can remove the mask using warm water. Check to see if using soap is also recommended. Gently pat your face dry and enjoy smoother, clearer skin.
