All of us are familiar with face masks AKA sheet masks and I'm sure that a lot of you even use them to keep your facial skin fresh, hydrated and glowing. But have you heard of the term butt masks? No? Even we didn't, until now. Well, Hollywood beauties like Jennifer Lopez, Kesha and Madonna among many others swear by this beauty secret to keep their butts fresh and glowing. Butt masking, as the name suggests, serves the same purpose as a face mask, but for your buttocks. They include two sheets, one for each cheek. It is believed that butt masks help in getting rid of butt acne and make it smoother and exfoliated.
Spilling the beans about the same, Tik Tok singer Kesha, who is quarantining with her boyfriend, reveals, "It helps to have someone put it on your butt, so that’s another perk of being quarantined with my boyfriend. It’s one of those things that, at the end of the night brings me happiness." On the Floor hit-maker Jennifer Lopez, too, counts butt-masking as a crucial part of her skincare routine.
Popstar Madonna is a self-professed butt masking fan. She had once revealed, "Don’t you want soft skin on your butt? Don’t other people look at your butt? Your butt has an audience! I encourage it. Maybe you can ask your significant other to remove the mask for you.”
Director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, Dr Joshua Zeichner had opened up on the benefits of butt masks in an interview with Teen Vogue. He said, “It’s not just the cheeks on your face that are getting the all-star treatment nowadays. Generally speaking, the skin on the buttocks tends to age better than the skin on the face because it is exposed to much less UV light."
"However, buttock skin commonly develops dryness, irritation, chafing, and breakouts because of sweating and friction. With age, collagen and elastin become weaker, leading to loss of elasticity and drooping, Masks typically contain ingredients that address these issues, helping to firm, plump, and hydrate,” he added.
