There are two main groups of face masks, "surface" first aid masks, which immediately improve skin appearance, and masks that can penetrate deeper, improve skin quality and have a longer lasting effect. Selection and use of masks is much easier if you take the fact that all the mask complement each other, and can be used interchangeably, according to current needs of the skin.
For a better skin structure - immediate lifting
The effect of a "surface" masks is immediately visible because they contain a large percentage of active ingredients. Unlike creams, lotions and serums for daily care, which gradually release active ingredients most of which do not melt in water but in oil (sebum of the skin), masks are soluble in water and therefore have a rapid effect. Skin completely absorbs all their useful components.
If you want to quickly rejuvenate the skin and tighten the relaxed surface face masks are an excellent choice, although they have only short-term effect. The choice could be:

For a brighter complexion - against the stains on the skin
These products contain active ingredients that refresh the skin such as plant and marine extracts, vitamins and oligo elements in addition to that some of these masks clean the skin, while others contain substances that bleaches skin. If your goal is airy, light skin in a uniform color and at the same time tighter, apply a mask to clean face, leave on for two to three minutes and then rinse. If you want to remove the dark pigment spots and return radiance to the skin, select the mask that has a deep stain effect. Such a mask should be applied regularly during the two months, twice a week to get lasting results.
