I believe as a woman one has to take extra care of your skin. You need to invest in your skin, make sure that whatever you using is not going to affect it in the long run. The fact that men’s’ skin texture is tougher and has a higher collagen density than women, it has been said a woman’s skin is about 15 years older than a man’s of the same age. This is because collagen content is directly related to the signs of skin aging. So what I am trying to say here is the 10 in 1 products men buy should be left for men only and as women, we should stick to products that actually benefit us both in the short and long haul. What’s that skin care routine that you follow on a daily or weekly? I have several but today is all about my favorite masks.
As a Geoscientist I get exposed to the hash sun rays on a daily therefore sunscreen is my best friend! My other best friend is anything that hydrates my skin after the sun’s exposure. You may not be in a similar field but you have to make sure that your skin gets the hydration it needs and of course drinking plenty of water.
My favorite hydrating kit involves ; Sorbet’s hydration face serum mask, hydrating foot and hand mask. This products are developed in collaboration with sorbets beauty expects and clicks. This are my life savers!
HYDRATION SERUM MASK
This contains mask is enriched with witch hazel, vitamin E and aloe which are some of the best ingredients to a radiant and glowing skin. It contains a serum that you first apply and massage on your skin for 2-3 minutes before you can put the face mask on your skin with gentle patting motions. I absolutely love the refreshing and cool feeling when the mask is applied on my face. The best part is you get to leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes. I feel like the opening of this mask around the eye area are quiet small, as a result most my eye area also gets to be covered by the mask. To avoid this you can increase the size of the eye opening by cutting it out with scissors or you can do what I do; put on a eye patch under before you put on your mask. This is great because then you can treat both your under eye area and your face. After you remove the mask, you can also add the excesses serum to your neck, décolletage and hands. Its always good to apply the same care you give to your face to those areas.
After you peal away the mask pat your skin to allow the remaining serum to be absorbed and believe me you will already see your skin glowing but the best part is waking up in the morning and seeing just how radiant glowing your skin appears. This serum is bomb!
HYDRATING HAND MASK
This mask is enriched with argan oil, hyalutonic acid, shea butter and vitamin E. It aims to smooth , refine and revitalize you hands with olive and sesame oils and fruit extracts to help moisturize and treat the signs of ageing while leaving your skin glowing. I love this mask as my hands are too over exposed to the sun which thus dries and ages them, the ageing treatment is thus a bonus.
HYDRATING FOOT MASK
One thing I have noticed about most women is that they are very insecure about their feet. Most would prefer wearing closed shoes simply because they are scared of showing the imperfections on their feet. I feel like if you are going to hide your feet in closed shoes then at least make sure that they are not too tight fitting, if they are then you are just even making the situation worse. Let your feet breathe, wear open shoes and show off those feet. You know what will boost your confidence to do this? using the hydrating foot mask! This mask softens and moisturizes your feet with hyaluronic acid leaving it radiant and glowing.
Please take note that this masks don’t perform miracles overnight, you have to use the product for at least a month before changes start to occur. Like any other product, if you want it to work effectively, avoid mixing products. Impatient won’t get you the results you need. I have been using it for 3 months and I can see the glow it has brought to my skin slowly but surely. This is a great product at a reasonable price. Try and let me know what you think.
TIPS ON USING MASKS:
-Usage of face pack on daily basis can cause wrinkles lines that will start appearing when you discontinue the usage of the face packs. Stick to maximum 2-3 times a week.
-Avoid over moisturizing: Stick to the time limit indicated on the package
–Steaming your face beforehand will open up your pores and soften the debris within your pores, making it easier for the dirt and oil to leave your skin.
-Your neck and décolletage is just as important as your face, so don’t neglect your neck when applying a face mask.
