Skin Care Product Focus: Masks

What are masks and why do we want to use them?a mask

There are different kinds of masks for different purposes.

  • Deep-cleansing, by penetrating the pores.
  • Healing acne scars or hyper-pigmentation.
  • Brightening, for a gradual illumination of the skin tone.
  • hydration to saturate the skin in water.

Some masks dry on the face, others remain wet.

Masking, besides delivering the desired effect of the mask, provides a sense of calm and relaxation.

Makeup Gourmet currently offers one mask which deep cleanses pores in order to minimze them, and, uses Glycolic Acids to aid exfoliation.

Key ingredients

Kaolin Clay

  • Purifies and detoxes the skin and makes it moist.
  • Contains high content of silica that helps in removing the dead skin and makes it to regenerate.
  • Contains minerals and phyto-nutrients which aid in eliminating toxins and excess oil from the skin.

Sodium Hyaluronate
A powerful humectant that attracts and holds on to water, making it the ultimate skin moisturizer. This helps to hydrate skin and keep it moist and supple by binding up to 1000 times its weight in water.

Because it attracts and binds to water, it causes slight swelling. This swelling helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and gives skin a more youthful appearance. The added water reflects light better to physically make skin look younger.

Glycolic Acid

A natural ingredient derived from sugar cane, though it is now often made synthetically.

Glycolic acid safely loosens the outer layer of dead skin cells on the surface your skin, bring fresh new skin to the surface. This is beneficial for those who are looking for ingredients that help with anti-aging. Glycolic acid can also help lighten discoloration of the skin, such as sun spots and help those with acne-prone and blackhead-prone skin.
