If hearing the word "biocellulose" makes your eyes glaze over, we don't blame you: it's a weird word. But that weird word is actually an ingenious material for face masks. It's way better than those cheap drugstore masks, and it's much better than thick plastic novelty face masks. In fact, it's one of the absolute best materials used in face masks, and here are three reasons why:
1. It was originally developed for burn victims
Biocellulose is made of natural materials and has the feeling of a second skin. It encourages healing and skin health. Because it's so therapeutic, you'll notice a feeling of immediate relief when you put it on; it's incredibly soothing. Biocellulose mimics the skin's natural barrier, which means it has great healing properties.
2. It seals perfectly against your skin
Because biocellulose has an incredible "clingy" quality, it seals against your skin seamlessly, which means that serums and lotions won't evaporate. Instead, they're encouraged deeper into the layers of your skin, which means active ingredients can work at a deeper level to prevent fine lines and wrinkles and encourage cell regeneration.
3. It has natural cooling properties
If you've just gotten microdermabrasion, fillers, or any other skin procedure, your skin may be extra sensitive. That's the best time for a biocellulose mask. Its natural cooling properties address sensitivities and provide a great feeling of relief. It's especially fantastic for use after sun exposure (read: a long day at the beach) to help skin rebound from all that heat.
