Discover The Best Anti-Wrinkle Masks

Not to trigger lockdown memories in our readers, but when’s the last time you masked?
Quite a few of us equate masking with those hard clay, flaking all over the sink, impenetrable layers of our pubescent years. Well, what if we told you that masking is a lifelong practice that we should all adopt? Especially when looking for anti-ageing, wrinkle-diminishing benefits.
The masks of our teens were formulated to balance excess sebum production, constrict the appearance of pores, and purge skin of acne-causing bacteria. After a certain age, you might not need those benefits anymore.
In which case, we think it’s time to reach for one of the masks covered in today’s article. Pun intended.
Firstly, the secret to masking the RIGHT way is all in your choice of ingredients. As skin begins to change, so do its needs. Educating yourself about your skin’s ageing process and the accompanying necessities can help you keep that youthful glow.
One main side effect of ageing skin is wrinkled. They also tend to be the earliest to appear. A smile line here, a crow’s foot there, wrinkles are formed through our continuous facial muscle movements, a decrease in natural oils, and the loss of fat in the subcutaneous layer of skin.
When it comes to the treatment of wrinkles, the quicker it begins the better the long-term effects for your skin. That’s why in this article we’re going to cover some amazing anti-wrinkle masks and the benefits their ingredients hold for your skin.

Balm - Ayuna

This detoxifying cream mask is chock full of purifying charcoal. Far from drying, a base of lemon fruit water provides a burst of skin-brightening hydration. Gluconolactone gently exfoliates dead skin, while squalane moisturises without feeling heavy. Pullulan, a polysaccharide, forms an invisible film on skin, tightening and firming, thereby reducing the appearance of visible fine lines and wrinkles almost instantly. We recommend Balm for clients who have a bit of congestion but are seeing the first signs of wrinkles on skin.



Definitive Optimising Mask – Auteur

Auteurs mask definitely lives up to its name. Nourishing mango butter deeply infuses skin with moisture, while cacay oil, high in natural retinol works to combat loss of collagen. A blend of 5 peptides, palmitoyl hexapeptide-52, palmitoyl heptapeptide-18, palmitoyl heptapeptide-27, palmitoyl octapeptide-25, and palmitoyl oligopeptide-78, topically relax muscle contractions to provide botox-like effects on fine lines and wrinkles. The perfect mask to reverse and prevent future signs of ageing in all skin types.

Masque Caviar Vert – Biologique Recherche

When skin is tightened, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines is greatly reduced. Masque Caviar provides an immediate skin rejuvenating and tightening treatment. Combining fermented wasabi, rice bran protein, tara fruit, and red algae with palmitoyl tripeptide-1, this sheet mask lifts, tones and contours facial ovals. An instant treat, it’s superb for pre-event use, leaving skin smoother and redensified upon application.

Anti-Aging Enzyme Mask – Sapelo

Exfoliation is key for dry, ageing skin. This gel mask from Sapelo provides enzymatic exfoliation via the use of pumpkin seed, providing skin softening and tone evening benefits. Honey, algae and soy amino acids deeply hydrate dry, flaking skin. Natural soap bark flushes away impurities, ensuring skin is left refreshed and never dehydrated. Gentle exfoliation paired with nourishing extracts makes this mask perfect for sensitive skin types needing a bit of skin renewal.

Differentl Skin Types

Masking is great for many reasons, most especially because via this often-overlooked step, you’re able to infuse skin with a high concentration of actives and offer benefits that other parts of your skincare routine may not. However, not all ageing skin is the same. While some may need a bit of a detox, others just need a dose of hydration. The great thing about it is, just like cleansers, serums and moisturisers, there’s a mask for all skin types.
