Texture: The lotion is runny and spreads evenly. It gets absorbed pretty quickly but does make my skin feel a little greasy. . I do like to use it as it makes you sweat  lot if used under foundation. I am sure this is going to be more useful during winters as it moisturizes skin pretty well.IMG_20160309_084156

DERMAL STRAWBERRY COLLAGEN ESSENCE MASK

Hi beauties 🙂 😀

This product which i’m going to review now will suit those ladies who are using anti-ageing cream and is mostly used by ladies above 35.My mom has shared her experience of using “COLLAGEN MASK”

WHAT IS COLLAGEN MASK AND THEIR BENEFITS??

If you haven’t tried collagen face mask before, you’re in for a treat. Paper collagen face masks are infused with a variety of nourishing ingredients, not the least of which is collagen. The main structural protein found in connective tissue, collagen makes up approximately 25% to 35% of the total protein content in the human body. Collagen gives young skin its firm, supple appearance.

Gone are the days of applying goopy creams and sticky face masks that make a mess. Paper collagen masks give your skin an instant glow, yet are incredibly easy to use. All you have to do is unfold the mask and apply it to your clean face to give your skin a rejuvenating dose of collagen. Below are 5 benefits of using collagen mask.

1. Hydrate and nourish your skin

Collagen face mask comes prepackaged in a foil pouch, which keeps it moist and sterile. The mask is drenched with beneficial ingredients and maintains a tight seal on your face, ensuring that the active ingredients and moisture deeply penetrate your skin.

2. Slow down collagen depletion

As we age, collagen production diminishes. It is estimated that by the time we reach the age of 40, the body has lost approximately 15% of its collagen production. Collagen face mask slows down the breakdown of collagen and protects the collagen in your skin by combatting damaging free radicals.  

3. Fight the signs of aging

Using collagen face mask helps maintain the skin’s youthfulness and fights the signs of aging. Apply the mask at least two to three times per week to improve your skin’s texture and firmness as well as reduce the size of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles.

4. Convenient and easy to use

Unlike other types of face masks, which require preparation, sloppy application, and cleanup, paper collagen face masks go on quickly and easily. There’s no effort involved, so you can begin to enjoy your facial immediately, whether you want to soak in the tub, watch TV, or lie down on the couch and listen to music while letting the mask do its magic. There’s no fuss or mess before, during, or after treatment.

5. Relieve stress

Stress shows on your face. Collagen face mask is a pampering treatment that not only makes your face look refreshed and rejuvenated, but also offers psychological benefits. Schedule some time each week to apply a collagen mask, sit back, and relax. Collagen mask is a spa-like treatment you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home.

Using a Collagen Mask: Treatment Options and Side Effects

There are a number of treatment options for those who want to look younger, from cosmetic surgery to laser skin resurfacing, but when it comes to ease of use and avoiding after-procedure downtime, a collagen mask may be a useful option for some people. These masks are designed to rejuvenate skin and boost collagen production to tighten skin and get rid of wrinkles and fine lines. Collagen mask kits can be purchased at spas, pharmacies, and beauty supply outlets, as well as through a multitude of online retailers. While masks like this can be beneficial to the skin, anyone who uses them should temper their expectations for rapid results and make an effort to understand how to increase collagen and improve aging skin. Therefore, before as you consider using a collagen mask, take the time to understand your skin type, how the mask will work to address your specific problems, and whether you might suffer from any side effects.

How a Collagen Mask Works

During the natural aging process, the skin loses elastin and collagen, and over time, the skin loses its ability to snap back into place after being pulled. While there is no effective way to replace the skin’s elastin, as the body mostly stops producing it in early childhood, the skin’s collagen continues to be rejuvenated throughout your lifetime. With some treatments, like collagen pills, or a collagen serum, the body’s own natural production cycle can be amplified in a variety of ways. While some treatments can be expensive and painful, such as collagen injections, others are safer and not as costly, such as a collagen mask, for example.

When applied to the face, a collagen mask is designed to tighten skin in the long term, as opposed to a surgical procedure like a dermal filler. Environmental toxins and the free radicals in the sun’s UV rays all destroy collagen, but the ingredients in a collagen mask may rejuvenate the skin by moisturizing it and boosting protein production in order to eventually smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. There are a number of different masks available, from those that come in a cream that you spread over to the skin to individually-wrapped masks that are designed to fit over the face and have holes to accommodate the nose and eyes. No matter which collagen mask application method you choose, be sure to read the ingredients and select one that is free of artificial fillers and parabens.

Preparing the Skin for a Collagen Mask

In order to achieve the best possible results with a collagen mask, it’s important that you prepare your skin before applying the product. First, wash your face with a gentle cleanser and then softly exfoliate the skin to remove any old makeup residue and to open up the pores on your face. It’s not necessary to steam open your pores before you use a collagen mask, but you can add this step for improved results, as open pores increase the product’s ability to penetrate deeper into the skin. If you use a collagen mask that you must spread on yourself, use only your fingertips and spread the gel evenly over your skin, avoiding the eyes and mouth. If you’re using a pre-wrapped mask, ensure that you apply it evenly so that the ingredients penetrate the skin more evenly.

Collagen Mask Side Effects

While dangerous side effects from a collagen mask are rare, some people have reported itching, redness, irritation, and in some rare cases, bruising, from the use of these masks. The more sensitive or thin your skin is, the more likely you are to experience these side effects.

My Mom’s Experience

The mask is a Korean brand company named”DERMAL” .After my routine and having Dermal’s Collagen Essence Mask on, I definitely felt the moisturizing and firming properties! It doesn’t sting, burn, itch or irritate. It has a lovely cooling feel to it and a slight firming feel which means its working. I had it on for 15 minutes (you can leave it on for up to 20 minutes, though) and I didn’t feel too smothered haha! I kept smoothing it over my skin and I laid down while I had it on.

After my 15 -20 minutes, i removed the collagen mask and let the wet collagen present over my skin to get absorbed itself.

What a difference! My skin was velvety smooth, silky soft and definitely firmer! I was actually really shocked! It’s still feeling the same way. Super smooth and soft. I see a bigger difference under my eyes
