Masques that maketh the skin (happy)

Why make the time to use a masque?

There are so many elements that maketh a masque (or mask – depends on how fancy you’re feeling) great. It’s not just down to ingredients, nor is it just the products textural considerations and it’s not just how it leaves the skin feeling post removal. It’s a powerful combination of all these elements that make the masque-ing experience a skincare force to be reckoned with. For many, taking the time to do a masque means they want both the impacts of a concentrated skincare product, as well as the therapeutic benefits too. There really is something to be said for stopping and taking a moment to let it all soak in (spirituality and physically).

Introducing the new DHC masques made by us, for you, with love and skincare devotion.

It is with this that we are beyond excited to introduce two new additions to our DHC skincare range – the Sea-Weed Saviour Masque and the Kakadu Plump Masque (everyone in the crowd goes wild). We have been itching to introduce you to these skincare additions for some time now, however, like all good things; we did indeed have to wait. We wanted to bring you two new products that a) we were genuinely in love with and b) we knew would offer visibly noticeable changes to the epidermis.

Take 1 – the Sea-Weed Saviour Masque.
This hardworking multi-tasker won’t stop until you are soothed, nourished, hydrated and protected beyond belief. The Sea-Weed Saviour Masque is packing a punch, however, it’s superstar ingredients are what we really want to draw attention to – seaweed, seabuckthorn (berry), cucumber and you know it, hemp seed oil! All skin types will fall head over heels for the Sea-Weed Saviour Masque, however, we know damaged and inflamed skin will be particularly grateful.

If your skin is in much need of a product that is going to serve up high vitamin concentrate and fatty acids aplenty, the Sea-Weed Saviour, in all of its anti-inflammatory and ultra-hydrating glory, is where you’re going to want to spend your cold hard cash.

Take 2 – Kakadu Plump Masque

Plump up the jam, plump it up. A plump it up yo, plump it.

Ok, so we took a little creative license with Technotronics’ Pump Up The Jam, because it just felt oh so right. As the name suggests Kakadu Plump Masque really is all about plumping that skin. The central anti-oxidant rich ingredients Kakadu Plum and Gotu Kola work to stimulate and boost the skin’s natural collagen production, targeting all those cute but ‘we’re not quite ready for you’ signs of ageing – fine lines, wrinkles and broken capillaries. The ever-hydrating rosehip oil absorbs quickly and easily, keeping your skin hydrated and glowing.

Kakadu Plump Masque is zoning in – this gal knows her targets and she is coming for them.

When & How To Use?

While you might be used to that feeling of a applying a masque, letting it “dry” and removing with a warm cloth before bed time, our masques are a little different. We encourage you to try our masques in two different ways:

  1. 1. Apply a generous layer of either masque to a clean, dry face. Light a candle, burn some incense and pour yourself a glass of GSM. Wait 20 – 30 minutes before lightly removing any residue from the surface of your skin with a warm cloth. Follow with your preferred DHC hydration product.
  2. Apply a slightly leaner layer of either masque to your skin, allow the product to penetrate for 15 minutes, give your S/O a hearty hug (human or furry friend – we encourage both), and head to sleep. Let the masques do the work while you dream of warm days, indulging in a Spritz on the Amalfi Coast.

So go on, give in to that all powerful skin glow that these two will bestow upon your complexion.
