Let’s have a closer look at this facial masque and explain each ingredient that it contains.
Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline is a plant derived ingredient that moisturizes and smoothes the signs of aging skin. You get three benefits: long lasting moisturization, firming, and antioxidant properties. A clinical study showed that after 45 days of using this ingredient a significant decrease in wrinkles were observed (-32%) and skin showed more flexibility and was perfectly moisturized (+18%). It also has a glam on the lips! After 15 days of application on the lips of 30 volunteers, improvements in moisturization, plumpness and reduction in depth of the wrinkles on the lips were observed. So make sure you apply the masque over your lips as well!
Coenzyme Q10 is another star ingredient in this facial mask that is vital to production of energy within cells. It is also a very powerful antioxidant. After the age of 20, the level of this coenzyme starts to gradually decline in our bodies, making it an essential addition to skincare regimen. When topically applied, CoQ10 can penetrate the cell layers of skin and may attenuate the depth of wrinkles due to photo aging. It can also contribute to epithelial cell turnover. CoQ10 supports the body’s natural defense mechanism against the damaging effects of free radicals.
Sweet White Lupin Seed Extract, known for its anti-aging and skin-firming properties, stimulates the synthesis of high-quality collagen in the skin. It restores elasticity and improves tone, particularly in saggy skin. In a study on 25 volunteers (45 to 65 years old) with saggy skin on the facial oval showed increase in skin elasticity and reduction in skin sagging volume were measured. These clinical results were confirmed by volunteers’ self assessment of 92% improvement in firmness of the skin and 72% reduction in sagging of the facial contour.
Sea Buckthorn seed oil is rich in flavonoids, lycopene, carotenoids, and phytosterols with a near 1:1 ratio of linolenic (Omega-3) and linoleic (Omega-6) acids and a high Vitamin E content along with high levels of carotenoids make this oil exceptionally nourishing and healing for your skin.
Astaxanthin is a freshwater algae with a high content of Vitamin C and E that may help with eliminating free radicals that cause premature aging. Rich in antioxidants, it is intensely hydrating to the skin, helps increase elasticity and keeps the skin looking plump and smooth.
Gently apply a teaspoon amount of the masque to clean and dry skin using fingertips. Avoid the eye area. Leave on for 10-20 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water and pat dry. Enjoy the glow!
