How do Hydration Masks Work????

Hydration masks are traditionally used for people with dry skin, but in actuality they should be used for all skin types. Everyone needs to make sure your skin is well hydrated... 

Hydration Masks are treatment masks designed to be used 1 to 3 times per week, depending on your particular skin type and time of year.  People tend to need and use them more during and change of season and the winter.  In the Winter the air tends to be dryer, people in general do not drink as much water (as they should) and the heat is on inside which makes the air very dry as well.   Combining all of these factors it tends to leave you having dehydrated skin.   During changes of season, sometimes your skin just gets wonky....

I highly recommend using a daily moisturizer as well as a treatment 1 to 2 times per week as needed, if you are feeling like you skin is looking dull and drab.  Having Dehydrated skin can make you look older or more tired than you are.  

The type of ingredients you are going to see and look for in hydration masks are:

Butters to soften the skin like Shea, Coco and various nuts.

Oils to hydrate and balance and nourish unbalanced skin tone- grape seed, carrot, borage, primrose, sea buckthorn and coconut.

Vitamins to feed and replenish like B, F and K and especially E.  

You should also expect to see ingredients like Aloe, Green tea, and sodium hyaluronate.  Sodium Hyaluronate is a binder, in which it can hold up to 1000 times its weight and water to the skin.  The result will be a diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and healthier looking skin.  One of my favorite ingredients of all times
