The ultimate skin goal is to have clear, glowy skin, right? With all of the skin treatments out there it can be confusing and overwhelming to find a facial treatment that actually works for your skin type (is there a magic ingredient that will fix my sometimes red, sometimes dry, sometimes puffy skin, AND the effects of the *occasional* Tim Tam binge..?). At the end of the day, we’re all just looking for something that makes our skin feel and look good. Cue, Esthemax Hydrojelly face masks.
What are Hydrojelly face masks?
Hydrojelly face masks are electrolyte rich jelly masks that are topically applied to our face. They are used to restore electrolyte imbalances that are often found to be a cause of dehydrated, dull and dry skin. In other words, Hydrojelly masks add moisture and can re-hydrate the skin. There are several options and Hydrojelly masks available for all skin types. Each mask is made from eco-friendly, cruelty-free, no nasties ingredients, which is a big WIN in our books!
Each mask is made up of a few core ingredients that are known to do some pretty amazing things for our skin:
Algae – nope, you don’t need to swim to the bottom of the ocean to reap the benefits of this bad boy. Algae is a powerful antioxidant that moisturises and protects the skin. When you apply algae to the skin, it will protect, repair and fight against environmental damage to the skin, wrinkles and signs of aging. It’s loaded with essential vitamins and minerals that work together to boost collagen, balance oil production, reduces puffiness and soothes redness.
Organic White Grain Oat Flour – In the words of Goldilocks… Organic White Grain Oat Flour is just right for our skin. Organic White Grain Oat Flour does a bunch of cool things to our skin – it has skin-soothing properties (helps to calm our skin down when it’s being irrational and rude… like when it decides to breakout the night before your work Christmas party) and can alleviate stressful skin conditions, such as rashes, allergic reactions, sunburn and other skin irritations.
Organic White Rice Flour – once again… carbs save the day. Organic White Rice Flour is filled with para aminobenzoic acid, ferulic acid, and allantoin, which means it’s a great alternative for sunscreen, it can be used to increase the absorption of Vitamin C in our bodies, AND works to repair the skin. It has amazing cleansing, exfoliating and conditioning properties, which we’re all about.
White Willow Bark – White Willow Bark is the real hero here. Since it’s soooo high in tannins, phenolic acids, flavonoids and minerals, it works really hard to soothe our skin and plays a big role in cell regeneration, which leaves us with beautiful, plump, and youthful skin. It also reduces inflammation and relieves stressful skin conditions, like rosacea, eczema and psoriasis. It can also reduce acne and excessive oil production, wrinkles and other signs of aging, and minimises pores. Our hero!
The application process
While each ingredient plays its own important role, the reason why Hydrojelly masks are so effective comes down to its application process. Before it becomes a mask, the masks come as a powdered formulation that is mixed and activated by water. Through this process, the powder works with the water to form a jelly-like substance. Once mixed and applied, the mask sets onto the skin and creates a ‘vacuum seal’ that gently penetrates the skin, pushing all of the nutrients within the mask into the pores – this application works its magic beneath the layers of your skin, with the benefits being showcased on the outer layers of our skin.
Other cool things and benefits of Hydrojelly masks:
· They’re a non-invasive, gentle treatment that requires little to no aftercare or additional steps post treatment
· They are a great way to manage and maintain our skin
· Can be used in conjunction with other treatments (in fact, we recommend this!)
· Hydrojelly masks don’t cause any damage to brow or lash tints
· Can be used to soothe the skin post-waxing
· They’re made from eco-friendly, cruelty free ingredients!
