Bubble, cream, sheet and mud—it is true that face masks come in many different forms. As a product that was once all about a moment of at-home indulgence, face masks have now become a key step in many weekly skin care routines. Trendy for a good reason, these luxe facial treatments are praised for their personalized take on skincare:
“When it comes to finding the right formula, your options are, quite literally, endless. No matter whether your complexion concern is spots, sagging, dehydration, dullness (you get the picture), there’s a mask for that.” -Byrdie
The most recent face mask to experience a surge in popularity is the luxe and lightweight Gel Mask. Designed to hydrate and nourish the skin, this skin-loving formula is the talk-of-the-town for those who struggle with ‘winter skin’. So, if you’ve been on the lookout for something to help tame cool weather dryness, listen up! COSMEDIX is about to dive deep into the all you need to know about gel masks, plus a sneak peek into our latest Elite launch!
So, What Are the Benefits of a Gel Mask?
Gel masks are the lighter alternative to mud masks and sheet masks. Usually made with a fun, jelly-like texture, these bouncy facial treatments wrap the skin in an invigorating and cooling sensation. Gel masks are typically formulated with a special focus on hydration, which makes them a match made in heaven for sensitive and dry skin types. They also tend to have a soothing effect on the skin, which is why the gel formula made its first appearance in the form of an under-eye treatment. Basically, you can think of them as a tall glass of water for a parched or lackluster complexion.
Any Special Ingredients I Can Expect?
Of course! Because gel masks tote moisture-rich benefits, they often contain skincare ingredients that help quench the skin and lock in hydration. Fruit extracts and marine complex are common in gel masks, as they help protect, calm and nourish the complexion. These lightweight masks also contain chemical exfoliants to help gently lift away dry surface skin for a complexion that feels softer and smoother.
Does COSMEDIX have a Gel Mask?
We do now! COSMEDIX just launched the first gel mask to join the Elite collection: Awaken Replenishing Gel Mask.
What Sets Awaken Apart from the Rest?
Maybe we are biased, but the Awaken Replenishing Gel Mask is something truly special! First, this cooling mask is part of COSMEDIX Elite collection—a spa exclusive line that features clinical level ingredients with potent, yet gentle formulas. No prescription needed here! Awaken is also the first gel mask to join the line and was made with our clean, clinical and luxurious skincare standards.
This cooling gel mask is packed with a superfruit extract, Marine Algae Complex, and Polyhydroxy Acids to help gently exfoliate the skin while adding a dose of deep hydration that lasts. Awaken is also formulated with a unique blend of powerful prebiotics that restore beneficial flora to the skin for a more balanced and protected complexion.
