The best just got better. Dermalogica®, researched and developed by The International Dermal Institute (IDI), have reformulated two of their award-winning masques – Skin Refining Masque and Skin Hydrating Masque – both containing new and dynamic botanical ingredients that enhance the effectiveness of the products.
Annet King, Director of Global Education for Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute, says, “Masques are a beneficial step which consumers frequently overlook. By definition, Masque formulations are highly concentrated, are designed to remain in contact for a specific period of time, (generally 10-15 minutes) and therefore can deliver potent “problem-solving” ingredients deep into the skin. As part of our ongoing mission to educate individuals, we have reformulated two of our award-winning Masques (Skin Hydrating Masque won Best Hydrating Masque by In Style Magazine) to be even more effective.”
The new formulations address two primary skincare issues: reducing oiliness and refining the appearance of pores, and the need for deep hydration. The updated formula for Skin Refining Masque has a unique suspension of natural earth clays and minerals to absorb excess oil, while botanicals like Eijitsu Rose and Lentil Seed Extract reduce sebum-production, provide astringent qualities while refining skin texture by reducing pore size. Other purifying extracts in this formula—Black Cumin Seed, Magnolia Bark Extract, and Chaulmoogra Oil – suppress microbial activity and soothe inflammation.
For individuals with dry and stressed skin, dehydration is quenched through new ingredients and technology in Skin Hydrating Masque. A unique cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid provides timed release moisturization to skin, boosts moisture retention while Glasswort (Salicornia herbacea) improves cellular lipid production. Tomato Seed Oil provides thirsty skin with a rich source of lycopene-rich lipids that help restore the protective barrier function, while Lysine promotes plumper and supple skin. In addition, Carrot Root Extract (a powerful Beta Carotene antioxidant and source of proVitamin A) which converts to Retinoic Acid in the skin is also added.
“Dehydration and congestion are common skin conditions experienced by all skin types due to lifestyle, travel and environment” adds King. “Masquing with these products once a week can help maintain the healthy function of the skin and keep serious skin problems like breakouts and dry skin related sensitivity at bay.”
Staying true to the same strict formulation that all Dermalogica products follow – free of known sensitizers such as artificial fragrances or colours, mineral oils, S.D. alcohol, and comedogenic or allergy-causing ingredients – the Skin Refining Masque and Skin Hydrating Masque are two great solutions for tackling thirsty or oily skin in just under 15 minutes!
