DERMALOGICA Skin Hydrating Masque

Dermalogica's light refreshing mask is a pleasure to apply, easy to remove and offers an added advantage, . . . it can be used around the eye area, and the face and neck. This is a big plus as the thin skin of the eye area is usually the first place to show dehydration, and often, the last place some masks should be applied.

Hyaluronic Acid, as well as some hygroscopic (water attracting) peptides, are the key moisturizing ingredients in this formula. We know hyaluronic acid is one of the leading ingredients for hydration because it is able to hold 1000 times its weight in water, makes up about 80% of what gives the skin its plumpness, and is easily utilized by the skin. Also, when combined with the soothing hydrating properties of mallow, the nourishing anti-oxidant properties of hops, and the anti-inflammatory action of arnica (reduces redness in the skin), this product will definitely impress.

This is one of those masks that could be used daily even though they are generally recommended only once or twice a week. For an easy way to change how your skin looks and feels, cleanse your skin, apply the mask, leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes, rinse and put a cream on afterwards to protect your skin and enhance the mask benefits. Prepare for the 'wow' factor.
