Facial masks are quite unappreciated in the Philippines. I believe that this is going to change because I see a lot of them now inside beauty stores. A clear indication that this skin care regimen is “picking up”.
Facial masks are a good addition to your regular skin care routine. You can do it once a week or three times a week; depending on your budget, life style and patience.
I posted this photo on my Instagram page a few weeks ago. It was a very hectic week for me and I needed to relax. I’ve managed to convince my partner to relax with me.
I picked up the cucumber mask because cucumber, an anti-oxidant, is known for its hydrating and relaxing properties. I picked up the herb mask because lavender was the photo used in its packaging. I found out when I got home that there wasn’t any lavender on the ingredients list, but an assortment of herbs namely :Portulaca Oleracea, Paenonia Albiflora, Cornus Officinalis Fruit, Polygonum Multiflorum and Angelica Acutiloba. Most of these herbs contain Ursolic and Oleanolic Acid that has anti-inflammatory capabilities that nourishes + hydrates the skin (this would be good for those who have Dry Skin).
The first thing that I noticed once I opened these facial masks was their fragrance. They smelled so good. The cucumber mask had a fresh and minty aroma while the herb mask reminded me of the perfume “Light Blue” for women from Dolce and Gabbana . It added pleasantness to the experience.
The mask felt cool on our skins, it even made us doze off for a few minutes. After a little twenty minutes, we took off the masks and noticed that our skin was very well moisturized… plump. While my partner went straight to bed, I spent a few minutes trying to observe for any after effects. So far, none.
The next day when I woke up, I felt quite well rested. Yes, it can have that effect. I then went straight to the mirror to check for any unwanted effects after a number of hours. There were no red spots, no itching, no signs of chemical burns or any allergic reactions. Being quite happy with the results, I decided to make it a part of my kit.
Skinlite Facial Masks are made in South Korea. As we all now know, South Korea is well-known for their skin care products. You can’t go wrong with this.
I always store the masks inside my refrigerator. Before using one, I make sure that the facial mask has been inside the fridge over night. That way, when it is applied, the coldness of the mask helps in reducing puffiness of the face, closes the pores, and encourages blood circulation; bringing oxygen to the face.
This is good way to start the weekend after a long hectic week at work. A great way to help your skin recover from a wonderful night out with friends. This is also good to use during long haul flights! Keep a few pieces on your hand carry, and pop it on an hour or two before landing.
This is a GREAT way to start your makeup routine. Put this on for 10 to 15 minutes. Keeping still while doing this so that your body temperature goes down; not making you sweat. This slows down your heart rate placing you in a much more relaxed state once you start applying your makeup.
Now, what might work for me might not necessarily work for you. Make sure to read the proper instructions before using this product.
