Masks—including super pricy 24K gold-infused sheet masks, lace masks, and designer masks specifically for lips or other body parts—are all the rage these days, and this trend is here to stay. Many men and women are ponying up big bucks to achieve the smooth, radiant, and hydrated skin that these masks promise.
“Masks are thought of as at-home chemical peels. They are popular because they help with texture, tone, acne, and fine lines, and they are inexpensive. Ingredients depend on what kind of skin you have. Vitamin C, glycolic acid, and salicylic acid are the most common ingredients. Only minor irritation is a risk for acne-prone or sensitive skin, and potential mild redness may occur in sensitive skin. But again, people get crazy masks on the Internet that are way too strong for their skin and then they can burn their skin. I recommend that people do not shop off the Internet for their masks at all. Ever,” says Jeanine B. Downie, MD, FAAD, director of Image Dermatology PC in Montclair, NJ
