If you’ve ever seen your mom walking around with a face mask at night time, then you know perfectly what they are. Alternatively, some movies and television shows have shown women wearing face masks mostly during spa time or night time. Either way, the purpose of masks may vary. Some can be firming and pore tightening, which means they can help your skin retain its youthful appearance while shrinking large open pores. Other masks may be brightening, bringing out your skin’s radiance while fading dark spots at the same time. Others may simply be moisturizing. It all depends on the formulation of the products!
