The act of applying a face or sheet mask has rapidly become a worldwide trend over the past two years. With so many different products on the market, there is literally a face mask for every skin concern you have. So why has masking become such a popular movement over the past few years? Here are the 3 benefits of masking and our favourite products to go with it.
Australia is increasingly more concerned with preventing the ageing effects on their skin. Which resorts to looking for products that help with wrinkles, fine lines and protecting the skin. Therefore, anti-aging products are hugely popular across the nation and people as young as 20 are looking to prevent ageing.
When it comes to anti-aging, you need to talk about lifting the skin and promoting blood circulation throughout the face. Enter the Cellular Laboratories® De-Ageing Lifting Facial Masque; a revolutionary, purifying sheet masque that can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and promote normal circulation.
This De-Ageing Lifting Facial Masque is infused with Matrixyl® 3000 which supports normal collagen production and natural skin structure as it lifts, firms, brightens and hydrates distressed skin, restoring that youthful glow. With the stress and exhaustion that your skin goes through everyday, it definitely deserves a treat.
Masks are perfect when you’re in need of a boost of hydration. A misconception about masks is that you can only use them before you sleep, however, sheet masks in particular can give you an amazing base to work with before applying makeup.
The Lumiere de Vie® Moisture Intense Sheet Masque is the one for you if you feel your skin lacking hydration. This mask is formulated with the powerful ingredient, Hyaluronic Acid which is known to promote skin hydration. Another ingredient is aloe vera which is naturally rich in enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and other plant compounds. It is a well-known moisturising element in the masque.
A misconception about hydration is that if you have oily skin, you have too much moisture in the skin, therefore you don’t need that extra boost. However, oily skin does not necessarily mean that your skin is over-hydrated, and you should actually feed it the normal amount of hydration.
Exfoliating the skin is such a vital part of skincare that many people may find a gimmick. Washing your face with an everyday facial cleanser may not be enough to remove all the excess oils, sebum and dirt that has been building up all day. We recommend exfoliating the skin 2-3 times a week to really give your skin the treat it deserves.
The Lumiere de Vie Volcanic Exfoliating Mask does a lot more than deep cleaning. The formula allows it to detoxify and enhance the skin’s glow and radiance. The combination of exfoliating and masking is an intensive treatment that includes antioxidants from green tea and bilberry which helps reduce the effects of environmental stress on the skin.
Masking is an important part of your skincare routine whether you’re after something preventative for ageing, you’re after hydration or needing some exfoliation. Follow our 3 benefits of masking for an optimal skincare routine.
