The black mask has become one of the revelation phenomena when it comes to facial treatments. Do we really know everything about this miraculous mask? In this article, we propose to clarify all doubts in this regard.

What is the black mask for?

For a relatively short time, the black mask has become the preferred treatment for many women to eliminate those obnoxious black dots that usually appear on the nose, chin, and forehead, and that are so difficult to remove.

This mask promises to leave our face free of impurities, blackheads, and acne. It is also good at fighting excess oil, leaving the skin soft and smooth.

Anything against the black mask?

To begin with, this mask is very difficult to remove, since it adheres like glue and often causes pain.

Being so adherent, it causes skin irritations and can leave red areas. It tends to leave pores open, which is why blackheads only disappear momentarily and can easily reappear.

If you are one of those people with sensitive skin, you should not use this mask lightly. If you still want to try it, you should first consult your dermatologist.

Being so adherent it causes skin irritations and can leave red areas.

Due to its great adhesion capacity, it can cause burns and blisters on the skin.

Sometimes it can produce some dermatological conditions, such as contact eczema or irreversible hyper-pigmentation, and brown spots. This is due to its main component, which sometimes contains glue mixed with activated carbon, which turns out to be very dangerous when used on any type of skin.

The dangers of glue for the epidermis:

Doesn't smearing your face with glue, a product made up of solvents and irritating materials, seem like a crazy idea? Well, it is not for those YouTubers who do not hesitate to use the preparation without worrying about the dangers associated with its use.

However, we can also see numerous videos of "fails" on social networks that show a catastrophic result: redness, allergic reactions, and swelling. You just have to see the grimaces and screams of pain of the girls as they try to remove the mask, to think twice. Protect the epidermis from such a catastrophe

Sometimes it can produce some dermatological conditions, such as contact eczema or irreversible hyper-pigmentation, and brown spots.

According to Nina Roos, if inhaling the glue is already very dangerous to our health, the long-term use of this homemade scrub can only end up destroying the skin barrier. Result: the epidermis will not be able to prevent the penetration of microbes and allergens on the skin, and the evaporation of water will be much more difficult.
