A year ago, the beauty industry brought a wave of admiration for the patches — small masks from collagen and cellulose impregnated with a wetting composition. Bloggers and beauty experts and put up a morning selfie, where they face adorned with patches. Manufacturers quickly realized that it is possible to produce a similar tool — so there were patches of nutrient composition for the lips, antibacterial for skin inflammations and liquid mask for the eye area. However, in recent years, many "experts" decided to rise against favorite care, considering the patches are harmful to the skin. Understand what myths surround this product and that actually give us patches.
The greenhouse effect
Suddenly, beauticians, bloggers began to promote the idea that the skin does not breathe under cellulose and hydrogel-coated patch. In response to this, the professionals only smile, noting that the skin can not breathe, contrary to popular myth. In the composition of the patches in addition to the beneficial supplements, only water and chemical thickeners — they leak air, so that no greenhouse effect can not be formed. And for those 15-20 minutes while you keep them on your skin, moisture may accumulate under the layer of the patch in the absence of intentional heating.
Imaginary experts also claim that the patches don't relieve the swelling, as stated by the manufacturer, but on the contrary provoke it. Cosmetologists break this myth the facts: the components of the composition of the patches do retain moisture, but temporarily. The effect of most of the patches snapshot, not cumulative.

Also and skin: if you moisturize regularly the area under the eyes quality cosmetics, the skin will absorb the useful substances and remove excess moisture.

The unknown components of the composition
Here, the experts unanimously agree that you need to carefully study the product to understand whether it will work effectively or not. Not the fact that you may be unfamiliar with plant extracts or mucus of an animal will remove the swelling and to moisturize the skin. However, chemists and cosmetologists there are several components that should be part of high-quality patches:
- Hyaluronic acid
- Panthenol and other
How to apply patches
First of all, store the patches in the fridge — chilled, they will be better to act on the skin, as the cold reduces swelling. Remove from the packaging with a special spatula from the kit, not to bring germs inside the jar. Apply on cleansed face for 15-20 minutes. After your morning shower or washing your face with warm water the effect will be noticeable stronger. Patches can also be applied to the skin before sleep, but do not recommend doing so girls are prone to edema — the area under the eyes can "swell" due to the individual response. Patches for the eye area can also stick to the dry areas of the face — usually the cheeks, facial wrinkles on the forehead and around the nose and chin.
How often can I use the patches
The patches may become part of the daily care due to a prolonged stay on the face, they moisturize better than creams and gels. However, stick them suggest no more than twice a day is just enough to sufficiently nourish the skin. Manufacturers recommend to do the patches the courses, promising a prolonged effect. However it is worth noting that this response is individual — some girls is not enough moisture, if they stop to put patches on podglaznye area. The cost of packaging different from the 1 thousand and above per month course. Not every girl can afford such spending, so you can save a little — apply patches only before important events or days when feeling particularly dry skin.
