It is winter and many of you are keen enough to keep your body in shape with a healthy diet and exercise. However, when it comes to taking care of your facial skin, some of you believe that following a CTM routine is everything you need to do.
Else, maybe you ever wished to put in some extra effort for your facial skin along with a balanced diet and CTM routine some of you might have chosen the option of exfoliation. We appreciate your efforts for keeping your facial skin glowing, but do you think these steps that you follow are more than enough to have bouncy and naturally beautiful facial skin?
The only answer that you are looking for right now, after counting from face wash to face serum on your fingertips is a face pack for glowing skin.
Yes, a face pack. There is no doubt in acknowledging the truth that we are living a rushed life and when the CTM routine and exfoliation process is an easy job to be done within minutes, who would wish to waste time in applying face pack and waiting for it to dry out soon.
Well in the case of a face pack at least you don’t have to wait for a long time to dry it, which you surely have to do when you apply a face mask.
Oh! And here’s one more thing. A face pack is not just another face mask. Yes, the two have their differences. Before scrolling down to know what’s the difference between the two, let’s know first what is a face pack.
What is a Face Pack?
Many of you are well aware of what a face pack is, and we believe that you have used it too. For those who are unaware and have never applied a face pack on your facial skin, let us help you.
A face pack is a thick paste made with natural ingredients that you spread on your face, let it dry, and settle down on your facial skin. After a few minutes rinse it with water to have glowing, smooth, and unblemished skin.
If to be precise, there is no better way to pamper your facial skin than a face pack, because it is used to moisturize, cleanse, tone, and rejuvenate your facial skin.
Difference between a face pack and a face mask!
The very first difference between a face pack and a face mask is, where a face pack is a paste that is spread on the face with the help of either a brush or fingers. On the other hand, a face mask is a sheet that is placed on the face with utter care to cover all the facial parts except the eyes, nostrils, and lips.
The next difference is, a face pack dries effectively immediately and gives instant results in comparison to a face mask. A face mask on the other side of the road takes time to settle down to your facial skin, and then it starts drying out.
Where the instant face pack takes 15 minutes in its whole process from applying to rinse off, a face mask takes 20 to 25 minutes in its whole process. Also, a face pack goes deeper into the facial skin to remove the dead skin cells and bring out the natural glow on the face, and a face mask helps in getting rid of facial impurities.
Lastly, a face mask is generally made of clay, whereas a face pack can be of any ingredient depending on which facial issue you are looking to cure.
