National Face Mask Day Date in the current year: August 11, 2024

National Face Mask Day August 11 is the perfect day to pamper yourself because it’s National Face Mask Day. We aren’t talking about medical masks that protect from infections and became ubiquitous during the COVID-19 pandemic; we’re talking about skincare products that help to keep your skin moisturized, nourished, smooth, and radiant.

Face masks, also referred to as facial masks, are among the most versatile and hardworking skincare products. There is a wide range of face masks for different purposes: cleansing, nourishing, moisturizing, skin lightening, anti-age, anti-acne, balancing, antioxidant, exfoliating, refreshing, revitalizing, detoxifying, soothing, firming, lifting, smoothing, regenerating, and many more.

Masks are also divided into types based on their form, texture and consistency. There are cream-based masks, clay masks, gel masks, mud masks, sheet masks, bubble masks, peel-off masks. Some of these masks are suitable for all skin types, while others work better on a particular skin types For example, cream-based masks are recommended for dry skin, while clay masks suit oily and problem skin.

DIY facial masks made from easily available ingredients (fruit, vegetables, vegetable and essential oils, clay, medicinal herbs, honey, egg whites, etc.) have been around for centuries and probably even millennia. Even today, a lot of people like prefer homemade face masks to their store-bought counterparts or use both kinds of face masks interchangeably.

Unlike moisturizers that should be applied twice a day, in the morning and in the evening, most face masks should be used once a week. However, the frequency of use depends on many factors such as your skin type, the condition and individual needs of your skin, the kind of mask you’re using, etc.

Since most face masks are supposed to be left on your face for about 15 minutes, using a face mask is more than just a skincare procedure. It is a self-care ritual that allows you to lie down, relax, and forget about your problems for a little while. Finding the time to treat yourself to a face mask once a week will do wonders not only for your skin but also for your mental health.

National Face Mask Day was created as a gentle reminder for people to take some time for themselves. It was created by Lush Cosmetics North America in 2019 to promote the use of face masks and, of course, the company’s products. To celebrate the holiday, Lush launched a physical and digital giveaway of its face masks so that everyone could experience their skincare benefits and relaxing effect.

National Face Mask Day is very easy celebrate. All you need to do is find 15 minutes in your busy schedule to treat yourself to a face mask. You also can buy a new mask or two, try new DIY face mask recipes, share your favorite recipes online, or even throw a spa party for your friends. Don’t forget to take silly selfies while your face mask is working its magic and share them on social media with the hashtag #NationalFaceMaskDay to spread the word about the holiday and promote self-care.
