Peel-Off Facial Masks Can Lead To Saggy Skin
Tugging and pulling on your skin wears and tears on the collagen and elasticity fibers causing premature lines and wrinkles. Peel-off masks pull excessively on the skin, which can traumatize, irritate, and/or disrupt the skin barrier.
Peel-off masks contain ingredients that allow them to adhere to the skin so they require you to peel them off. You cannot simply wash these masks off. Because you're pulling on the mask, and ultimately your skin, you could actually be sabotaging your efforts for fresh, firm, glowing, youthful skin. In reality, these face masks damage your skin barrier and can peel off normal skin cells along with your mask which in turn damages your skin in the process.
These types of masks make skin-care professionals cringe at the mere thought.
Peel-off Masks Can Cause Skin Irritation

They can irritate the skin, clog pores, or cause an allergic reaction such as dermatitis, eczema, or rosacea.
Your skin can also become red and itchy and in extreme cases your skin can weep and even peel off. In this case you'll need to see a dermatologist, said dermatologist Dr. Tympanidis.
