Eye masks: what they are and how to use them.
Usually, patches are saturated with a cosmetic composition with a high concentration of active substances, which is often not inferior in saturation to powerful anti-aging or moisturizing serums. There is an enviable variety among the active components. Oils, vitamins, and panthenol are used to restore and strengthen the skin, antioxidants are used to fight wrinkles, peptides are used to increase skin elasticity, chamomile, aloe, and plantain extracts are used to soothe and relieve irritation.
The patches are most often made from non-woven fabric or hydrogel (a jelly-like mass that already contains an incredible amount of nutrients, from the placenta to plant extracts).
Eye patches are classified according to their purpose:
- moisturizing: quickly saturate tissues with moisture and a complex of vitamins. They are ideal for thin skin and visually smooth the wrinkle pattern.
- smoothing: inhibit the transmission of nerve impulses and slightly block facial expressions, acting like Botox. The composition may contain collagen, colloidal gold, hyaluronic acid.

- regenerating and rejuvenating: they trigger the mechanisms of skin rejuvenation and include the balance of all components. The formula contains all the achievements of modern science: peptides, coenzyme, collagen, extracts of caviar, algae, ginseng.
