There are also some preservatives in these masks, which are also used for chemical peels with certain acids, and this can in turn case swelling, itching, or redness in the breasts.

Well, it depends on you! Scientifically, there’s no evidence that using these masks would magically enhance your breasts or help reduce sagging. But yes, if you are looking for some nourishment and cooling sensation for a while, you should definitely try these out! However, always read the ingredients while buying the masks, and go for the natural ones that don’t come loaded with chemicals or parabens.
