Hey guys! So today I’m talking about a skin care product that I’m particularly excited about – because I actually helped develop it! I may be biased, but it’s my DREAM MASK called Hydroxy Glow. I wanted something hydrating and anti-aging that would give an instant visible glow and smoothness to the skin and I had not found anything that fit this niche. So I begged my mom to come up with something and I’ve been extremely involved in the process – from hand picking out my favorite ingredients to even naming the product! I have been testing different versions since last April – yes that long – I’m probably the pickiest person you’ve ever met and I wanted it to be perfect.
ABOUT THE MASK:
If you’ve been reading my blog you’ll know about my love affair with alpha hydroxy acids and their power to exfoliate and smooth the skin. So that’s the basis for the mask – hence the name Hydroxy Glow. It contains lactic and glycolic acid at pH 3.5 (the ideal pH for maximum effectiveness) and you will know it’s working because the mask tingles when it’s applied -that tingle is your dead skin being gently dissolved. The hydroxy acids work by removing the “glue” from the upper layer of skin that holds onto the old, dead skin cells. Lactic acid primarily exfoliates the top, dead layer of skin & gives an instant glow while glycolic acid (a smaller molecule) goes deeper into the skin and helps stimulate the growth of new collagen.
The mask also has some of my other favorite all star skin nourishing and anti aging antioxidants -Alpha Lipoic Acid, Ester C (Vitamin C), DMAE, and Glutathione to nourish, hydrate and restore the skin.
Here’s the best part – it comes with a beauty oil to apply after using the mask and this takes it over the top – it feels like you have newborn baby skin.
