To use a hydrogel mask, start with a gentle, hydrating toner to fully absorb the mask and its properties. After applying it, the hydrogel locks in moisture, releasing nourishing serums into the skin. For the best results, use a jade roller to massage the remaining serum into the face after removing the mask– until the serum is fully absorbed, and follow up with a moisturizer.

Loved around the world by make-up artists, celebrities, and beauty editors, hydrogel masks can help restore, rehydrate, and add radiance to the skin. So, what’s the best way to use a hydrogel face mask— and why should you incorporate them into your skincare routine?

How do hydrogel masks work?

Hydrogel masks have high moisture content and unique therapeutic qualities. They work to revive and rehydrate the skin. In other words, hydrogel serves as a hydrating barrier, and using these masks in our skincare routine can help improve cellular function.

Unlike traditional sheet masks, these are made from bio-cellulose or synthetic polymers– enabling them to hold large amounts of serum. Hydrogel masks are typically soaked in a serum that is directly deposited on the skin when the mask is applied.

How can you achieve the best results?

With so many on the market, it’s essential to seek out one that has the active ingredients that meet your specific needs. 

For example, if you’re struggling with dry, dull skin, opt for face masks with sodium hyaluronate or hyaluronic acid, which help lock in moisture at the skin’s surface. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a youthful glow, prioritize skin-brightening ingredients, such as vitamin C, niacinamide (vitamin B3), and licorice root.

To give your skin even more of a boost, try chilling your hydrogel mask. Storing your mask in the refrigerator can help stimulate microcirculation and combat any puffiness, redness, fine lines, wrinkles, and other areas of concern.

Should you incorporate hydrogel masks into your routine?

If you have normal, combination, or dry skin and no underlying skin conditions, incorporating hydrogel masks into your regular skincare routine can help purify your skin with the help of all-natural, active ingredients like collagen, jojoba oil, and aloe extract.

Above all else, these masks prove that spa-worthy skincare is possible at home. If you’re feeling stressed out– set aside some time to relax your mind and rejuvenate your skin.
