If you're looking for a mask that may work well for your skin, there are some things to know.
Dr. Jennifer Linder with Linder Dermatology & Skin Cancer Surgery Center offers the following advice:
--The cream base of a mask formulation is actually a great delivery system for active ingredients used to treat a variety of skin conditions. They can range from treatments delivering intense hydration for patients suffering with impaired barrier function or dermatitis to enzyme or salicylic acid treatments that remove cell build-up and fight breakouts and acne.
--Formulated with the acne patient in mind, Clarify: Therapeutic Salicylic Acid Mask is both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory to quickly and effectively clear and prevent breakouts. This treatment mask incorporates advanced soothing botanicals with salicylic acid, an effective keratolytic, to address the four main causes of acne.
--Retexturize: Therapeutic Pumpkin Mask combines exfoliating pumpkin enzymes and salicylic acid along with a host of antibacterial and antioxidant ingredients to address rough-textured skin caused by keratinization, leaving a healthy complexion following treatment.
--Revitalize: Therapeutic Papaya Mask combines a powerful combination of papaya puree and additional fruit extracts from lemon, orange and apple to brighten a dull complexion and effectively reduce hyperkeratinized cells, leaving the skin with a healthy glow. Green tea, vitamin E and honey reverse oxidative damage while drawing moisture to the surface of the skin, keeping the skin soft and hydrated. This results-oriented therapeutic mask is appropriate for all skin types and conditions.
--Hydrate: Therapeutic Oat Milk Mask was strategically formulated to soothe and hydrate impaired skin conditions of all kinds. Oat milk, an excellent humectant, is also a potent antioxidant that effectively manages dry or sensitive skin conditions. This unique treatment mask incorporates advanced botanicals and pro-vitamins such as cucumber, arnica and panthenol to alleviate inflammation, improving the overall integrity of the skin.
