Modeling Mask Vitamin C is specially formulated to brighten and boost skin through Vitamin C, a protective antioxidant that clears out impurities, enhances skin texture, and stops melanin production to reduce the appearance of dark spots and discoloration. Vitamin C also hydrates and fights free radicals that cause wrinkles to even out skin tone and reduce the signs of aging.
Primary ingredients and benefits:
Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) - A powerful antioxidant with anti-aging benefits of evening out skin tone, improving skin texture, and reducing or preventing signs of aging. Vitamin C prevents damage from free radicals that cause signs of aging and also stops melanin production to reduce the appearance of dark spots and discoloration on the skin.
Strawberry Root Extract - With their high Vitamin C content, strawberries contain amazing anti-aging properties. Its natural salicylic acid content lifts impurities out of the skin and prevents blemishes by removing the bacteria and dead skin cells that often clog pores and cause acne. Strawberries contain other natural acids that help moisturize skin, fight free radicals and lighten the appearance of age spots and freckles.
Sodium Hyaluronate - Derived from hyaluronic acid (HA), sodium hyaluronate promotes skin elasticity and moisture, reduces dryness, soothes skin inflammation and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Due to its lower molecular weight than HA, sodium hyaluronate is small enough to penetrate the epidermis (top layer) to improve hydration from the underlying skin layers thus having a greater hydrating effect.
Licorice Root Extract - An antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that detoxifies, soothes and protects the skin. Licorice Root Extract also inhibits melanin synthesis, which helps regulate skin tone, fade dark spots and treat skin conditions such as acne, dermatitis, and eczema.
Diatomaceous Earth is a natural detoxifier, made up of 89% silica, that fights free radicals, soothes inflammation and boosts collagen to prevent wrinkles and promote healthy, vibrant skin. Diatomaceous Earth prevents water from evaporating thus keeping skin moisturized and intensifying the skin’s absorption of active ingredients in the mask.
Algin is a natural, marine plant-derived emulsifier and thickener that creates a well-textured, spreadable mask. Also a water binding agent, algin helps water bind with the active ingredients, so skin can quickly and effectively absorb the moisture and nutrients in the mask.
1. After cleansing, apply toner to prepare the skin. Also consider applying appropriate ampoule, serum, or moisturizer for an additional boost.
2. If applying the modeling mask to the face only, weigh 7g of powder and slowly mix with 7ml of water. If applying to the face and neck, weigh 7g of powder and slowly mix with 7ml of water. Mixing slowly ensures the powder is fully incorporated. Once incorporated, then mix with more rigor. Tip: the thicker the consistency the easier the mask will be to remove, so start with adding the lower range of water and only add more if needed.
3. Apply the mask mixture quickly and evenly using a mask applicator. Load up the mask mixture on the applicator and make broad flat strokes along the contours of the face for even application, avoiding the eye area, mouth, and hairline.
4. After 15 minutes, remove the mask from the bottom to the top. With practice, the entire mask can be removed in one upward movement. Do not rinse. If any mask residue remains, wipe gently with a damp sponge or washcloth to remove. Then proceed with finishing steps of the facial such as applying moisturizer and sunscreen.
5. Typically the modeling mask is one of the last steps of a facial service, leaving the client refreshed from total body relaxation and intensely nourished skin.
