The first thing that comes to our mind when we want an instant glow on the face is definitely using a face mask.

Touted for instant hydration and targeted benefits, face masks have always been a part of the skincare routine. But are they worth the hype?

"In all honesty, it depends on the type of mask as well as the ingredients," said Dr. upasna nagpal, consultant Aesthetic Physician

Also according to her, there are certain masks like charcoal masks that have no specific studies or evidence to prove their efficacy and effectiveness.

"Sheet masks are also more or less used to hydrate your skin, rathe than treat it. And even then, it shows effects only after prolonged use," she said.

So, how do you get the most out of a face mask? "First of all, use an overnight mask to get the most out of your product," she suggested.

"The key to getting a face mask to actually work is consistency- if and only if used regularly and consistently can these face masks show results," added Dr. upasna nagpal
