Now that the end of winter is finally in sight - we can breathe a sigh of relief! Time to start working on repairing our skin from the cold, harsh temps. One of my favourite products to help bring my skin back to life is our Crystal Waters Mask. Who is Crystal you may be asking? She is the sidekick you’ve been looking for, and she’s here to help you banish dry flaky skin!
Crystal Waters Mask is a Hyaluronate hydrating gel mask. Hyaluronate is the salt form of Hyaluronic Acid. Sodium hyaluronate has a smaller molecular weight, which means it penetrates the skin easier and quicker. It’s an effective and safe ingredient that draws moisture and absorbs a remarkable amount of water - leaving your skin feeling plump and hydrated.
She is full to the brim of antioxidants and vitamin C which will add life back into your complexion. And, not only will your complexion rejoice but she will also help fight against inflammation and pigmentation.
This skin saviour can be used in a multitude of ways. My two favourite ways to use Crystal Waters Mask depend on how thirsty your skin is and how much time you have.
For those short on time but that want that beautiful dewy glow, I’d recommend putting her on before applying your makeup. For a quick hydration hit, leave Crystal Waters Mask on for 10-15 minutes and then rinse off with warm water. Your skin will instantly feel soft and subtle. This also creates a hydrated and plump base, allowing your makeup to sit properly and leaving you looking your best when you follow with your usual serums and oils.
Now, for those of you with a bit more time, don’t be afraid to get into bed with Crystal. Personally, this is my favourite way to apply her. Great for those whose skin needs a little more TLC.
Once or twice a week I apply her as the last step in my skincare routine. Give your face a deep cleanse, gently exfoliate and then apply your personal favourite water based serum (I personally pair her with Stardust Tonic, though Botanic Facial Serum is also a great partner). After your skin is feeling squeaky clean and prepped, go ahead and apply a 20 cent piece amount all over your face (avoid around the eye area) and down your neck. Then all you need to do is fall asleep and let Crystal Waters Mask do all the hard work.
In your morning shower lightly wash Crystal away with warm water and continue with your regular routine. For maximum results, I'd recommend applying Botanical Facial Serum, Stardust Tonic and then Mermaid Oil.
