blog-5What is the Difference between an Anti-Aging Serum and Mask?

Probably not a lot of people ask this question.  But, when you look in the mirror, you will start to see the changes.  If you want to slow down some of the changes in your skin, then you will need to start using products that will improve the quality and appearance of your skin as it ages.

As my skin ages, do I need to use an anti-aging serum and a mask? Or should I use both?  And, how often should I use them?

ANTI-AGING SERUM
A serum is a skin product containing active ingredients from nature that when applied to the skin result in a benefit in the appearance of the skin.

A serum is applied after the skin has been cleansed.  But, it is applied before a moisturizer.

As with any product, it will now happen overnight.   A serum is usually more expensive than a mask.   But, a good mask can be equally expensive.   A serum contains ingredients that are not naturally present in nature.   This means that a process is involved in order to obtain the actual ingredient that was originally removed from a plant or flower.

It could be that you are trying to remove an extract from a specific plant.   Well, in order to remove the extract, there are several steps to go through in order to obtain the actual serum.

Also, with the potency of the serum, only a very small amount evenly applied to the skin will make a difference.

And, a serum will likely cost more than a masque.  The price of the serum will depend on the actual ingredients in the serum as well as the time it took to extract the special ingredients that are beneficial for the skin.

And, with a serum, a very small amount evenly applied to the whole face will have a beneficial effect.


MASK
A good mask can be equally expensive.  But, usually a good mask will not be as expensive as a serum.

A mask is different in that you put it on your skin for a period of time, usually between 20-30 minutes and then remove it with a washcloth.   When applying a mask, it is important to only leave it on for the stated time frame on the container.  You don’t want to cause irritation.   A longer time with the mask on is not better for your skin.

Depending on the specific needs of your skin, you can purchase  a mask that specifically targets those needs. You just need to take the time to find what is best for your skin.

With a serum, you apply it in the early morning or in the evening.  You don’t take it off.

So, take your time and find the one that works best for your skin.  To get a product that makes a difference, you will need to spend some funds initially.   But, you will see the difference in your skin.
