Apply the mask first or use the aloe vera gel first?
Use aloe vera gel first and then the mask.
Use aloe vera gel before applying the mask. Generally, use aloe vera gel first, and after the aloe vera gel is absorbed, wash your face with water and dry it, and then you can apply the mask. Aloe vera gel can also be used directly as a sleeping mask. The usage is very simple. After completing basic skin care, apply a thin layer of aloe vera gel on the face and clean the face after getting up the next day.
Precautions for using aloe vera gel
1. Aloe vera gel should not be applied too much or too thickly
Many people think that aloe vera gel is cool and moisturizing, so they apply a lot on the skin, which is actually wrong. Aloe vera gel is too thick, it is easy to make the skin airtight, and it will easily cause acne and breakouts.
2. Use as a mask before makeup
After applying aloe vera gel, the skin will become very fragile, because the water content in the cells will be relatively high, and the defense ability of the stratum corneum will also be reduced. If you apply makeup directly afterward, the makeup will irritate the skin. And the prolonged wearing of makeup exacerbates the penetration of these risky ingredients, making the skin more prone to problems.
3. Do not wash your face after applying
Aloe vera gel can be used as a mask, but like a mask, you need to wash off the excess essence after applying it. Therefore, aloe vera gel cannot be used as a sleeping mask to avoid clogging pores due to non-absorption.
