Patches: the secret of radiant skin from the most popular beauty product

Eye patches have become the most popular and purchased cosmetic product of the last decade. They were ahead of other previously fashionable products in one fell swoop: eyebrow shadows, CC creams, tints, etc. Cool, refreshing and moisturizing patches were expensive at first and were a sign of belonging to the "club of connoisseurs" of beauty products. Today, you can buy this product in any store where cosmetics and perfumes are presented!

When the hype subsided a little, and even modest mass-market brands began to offer their developments, attention to the features of a fashionable product increased dramatically. Customers began to wonder which patches to choose better, how much to keep them. When the remedy turned into a part of everyday care, eco-activists sounded the alarm. It turned out that by massively buying inexpensive patches in individual packages, we create a huge amount of garbage, which takes hundreds of years to disintegrate in the natural environment!

At the same time, the product itself can be called eco-friendly. If you do not think of daily facial care without patches, choose the options in a jar. This makes each pair of applications cheaper and reduces the amount of waste.

How do patches work?

The application, impregnated with a moisturizer, ensures maximum tight contact with the skin. The gel "buffer" between the patch and the epidermis raises the moisture level. The surface of the skin seems to loosen, letting the active substances go deep. The gel plays the role of a biochemical "bridge" delivering components to the delicate tissues around the eyes. The mechanism of operation is the same, regardless of the material from which the patches are made. Therefore, the application option can be chosen according to personal tastes and budget.

Varieties of patches and nuances of choice

The range of manufacturers is so large that the question naturally arises: how to choose patches for the eyes. To begin with, let's define the types of applications.

  • Hydrogel — the most inexpensive and safe for the environment. The basis of the hydrogel is carrageenan, extracted from seaweed. The translucent material feels like jelly and perfectly absorbs moisturizing compounds, gradually giving them to the skin.

  • Cellulose — three-dimensional nanocellulose is used for production. Such patches are most often produced by brands with a high price tag and an impeccable reputation. The material fits on the face like a second skin (does not flow and does not slip), providing a more pronounced result.

  • Fabric is another option that is safe for nature. Such masks and patches are made of cotton, microfiber, and biocellulose. These disposable products are popular due to their ease of use and exceptional hygiene. However, they dry out faster, which reduces the time of their exposure to the skin.

  • Silicone is the most non-ecological product, from the use of which a maximum of garbage remains. In addition, such patches are often "dummy", that is, they do not contain any special active substances. However, it is still possible to get some moisturizing effect from them.

How to use the tool correctly?

The question of how to glue patches correctly did not arise immediately. Fans of the novelties of the cosmetics industry initially applied applications directly on top of makeup during a lunch break at work or traveling on an airplane. But this approach can only harm the skin, literally driving dust, powder and foundation particles into it.

And yet, how to use patches? The answer to this question is very simple — it is necessary to completely clean the skin and apply applications. If you want to use the product for bruising or against puffiness, place it with the wide end to the nose. If the purpose of exposure is crow's feet and other fine wrinkles, deploy the remedy the other way around.

During the procedure, you should relax and maintain the local mask for the time indicated on the package. Do not keep the product for too long — the drying base will begin to pull moisture from the skin.

Business time, fun hour!

When it is better to use patches — in the morning or in the evening — depends on your goals and active components. Apply the product at the beginning of the day is worth it if you want to quickly put yourself in order and simplify the application of makeup. In the evening, it is advisable to use anti-aging and nutritional formulations. When figuring out how to apply patches correctly, keep in mind that severely over-dried or oily skin is less susceptible to the effects of such a remedy.
