What is a bubble mask?
Bubble masks are cleansing masks that foam or form bubbles due to a special oxygenation process. These bubbles help gently remove dirt and impurities from your face and leave your face glowing. Bubble masks are available in various options, including sheet masks, creams, and mud masks that contain foaming and (which form bubbles), hydrating ingredients, collagen supplements, and activated charcoal (to improve hydration and exfoliation).
Wondering how bubble masks work? Read on.
How do bubbling face masks work
A bubble face mask uses foaming agents and pressurized oxygen to form bubbles that help exfoliate the skin, unclog pesky pores, and remove blackheads and excess oil. They also deliver nutrients deep into the skin. Oxygen is believed to aid in cell regeneration. This is one of the reasons why you may notice a visible “glow” after using a bubble mask. Oxygen is also believed to help stimulate collagen production to make skin look plump and supple.
A bubble mask contains PFCs that help dissolve oxygen (just the way water dissolves carbon dioxide to form bubble soda water). Oxygen is pumped into the sheet mask or product under pressure. The mask is then sealed inside a pressurized package. Once you take out the mask and press it with your fingers directly on your skin, you will see the pressurized oxygen bubbles. Thus, bubble masks are an affordable alternative to oxygen facials that inject antioxidants and nutrients into your skin.
But are bubble masks just a skincare fad, or do they serve any purpose? Let’s find out.

Take out the mask and gently place it on your face. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes or as directed on the package.
If you are using it in cream form, wash your hands and extract the product. Use the spatula to distribute it evenly on your face. Avoid the areas around the eyes, nose and mouth. Also, do not apply it near the hairline. Leave it for the specified time.

Remove the mask after the specified time. Gently massage the rest of the product onto your skin to clean off remaining dirt and impurities. The massage relaxes the facial muscles. Wash with warm water.
