Skincare masks captivate everyone on social media, brightening our screens, rejuvenating skin promises and vibrant colors: yellow, orange, green, blue, charcoal gray, brown, white, black, translucent and even That 24-carat gold or disco-ball glow.

Although face masks are wildly popular, it must be said: there is no significant scientific evidence to support their use. Dermatologists do not consider them medically necessary for healthy, glowing skin.
But many skincare enthusiasts (and even some dermatologists, like me) find enjoyment and perhaps mild, subjective benefits to some facial masks. And they can make at least a little scientific sense.

Some masks may temporarily slow the loss of skin's natural moisture (a measure of the skin's barrier function that doctors call trachepidermal water loss). They may deposit a thin film of moisturizer or a saline to temporarily increase the hydration of the skin, which leaves it soft and less finely lined. And by trapping an active ingredient against the skin, a sheet mask can potentially increase the strength of its contents for faster and more dramatic results. (Dermatologists often rely on this concept - called impetigo - to soothe severe skin rashes, such as psoriasis and eczema. A classic example is a cortisone cream applied under a snug-fitting pajamas or plastic wrap. Is done and left overnight to relieve rapid rashes.)

While masks are generally considered very safe, their quality and content can vary widely. If the ingredients of the mask cause skin irritation or allergy, itching, stinging, red or scaly rashes may occur. If your skin reacts, or if you have sensitive skin, it may be a good idea to avoid them. Even dermatologists who enjoy masks recommend that we do not overdo them - they can be considered an indulgence once a week or once a month. And checking the ingredients list can help you choose from thousands of available products.

Dry, irritated, or mature skin types may look for gentle masks that contain hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or dimithonic. Some people consider Manuka honey or a mixture of cool soil to be soothing. (Please note that a rich, gentle, unsaturated moisturizing cream or ointment is expected to do as much or more than any mask to hydrate parchy, irritated, or dry skin.)

For those prone to blemish, masks containing clay, charcoal, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, or tea tree oil may provide a theoretical benefit to exfoliate the skin and calm breakouts. These ingredients also cause irritation, redness, or peeling.

For skin that appears dull or is showing signs of age, consider a mask with glycolic acid or retinol, which can gently brighten and lose color.

There are no miracles found in masks. But as long as we are realistic in our expectations and do not care about any problems, they can be a fun and safe part of a healthy skincare routine.
