The History of Masks and Patches

Apr 18

masksFor centuries facial masks have been a part of women’s skincare routine. Cleopatra often applied egg whites and Dead Sea mud to her skin to help keep it smooth and soft. It became popular to use an application of a paste such as clay or mud enriched with minerals to draw out toxins from the skin.

As mud/clay masks were well-known to help dry out the skin, women were looking for other methods to incorporate moisture to their skin. Various herbs and fruit extracts were incorporated into the beauty regiment providing nutrients and natural antioxidants. This allowed for the skin to become softer, more radiant and youthful looking.

In Asian markets, women began using facial masks as part of their skincare routine in order to hydrate and rejuvenate the skin. Facial masks became known as “second skin” as the mask formed a bond with the skin, offering an advanced delivery system.

As the benefits of facial masks became well-known and the popularity grew, masks became a significant part of spa & beauty treatments. Based on the skin’s complexion, various ingredients are used to benefit specific skin types: oily, dry, sensitive, etc…
