There are only a few things more relaxing than an at-home spa day. A cup of coffee, comfy pajamas, messy bun and your favorite products are all you really need to treat yourself on a weekend afternoon.
The best part…there are endless varieties of skincare treatments. Two of the most popular are exfoliating peels and treatment masks. If you haven’t tried either, we’re here to help you get started.
To begin, both masks and peels sit atop the skin’s surface and assist in promoting healthier, brighter skin. However, there are several differences worth bearing in mind.
Peels are designed to remove the outermost layer of your skin. They’re often described as a deep exfoliant, typically not ideal for sensitive skin…until now. Our gentle peel touts only five ingredients, allowing lactic and glycolic acid to handle the heavy lifting, therefore eliminating harsh and unnecessary ingredients.
A treatment mask typically offers a nourishing benefit, as individuals may choose the best one based on their personal preference. Also, a mask does not have to live in the form of a sheet mask; it might be a rich moisturizer you already use on a daily basis. A treatment mask is truly about restoring skin to its prime condition.
Still not sure which treatment to choose?
Pick a peel to:
- Diminish the appearance of fine lines
- Reduce dark spots, or acne scars
- Smooth skin’s appearance
Recommended product: Silk Therapeutics Renewing Peel – leave on for up to 10 minutes to allow the gentle product to brighten and smooth the skin; rinse with tepid soda. For sensitive skin, leave on for up to three minutes. Also, if you want to learn more about how peels work and why we’re different, read prior blog posts here and here to understand the appeal behind our peel!
Choose a treatment mask to:
- Reduce irritation and inflammation
Recommended product: LabGrab Rich Hydration – apply a thick layer to the face and neck. Leave on for 10 minutes (or more) to hydrate and plump the skin; rinse with warm water.
