The Mask by WOW facial 

Whether you usually pay particular attention to your skin or not, it's likely that you’ll have noticed that this past year hasn’t been great for skin health.  

We recently emphasised the detrimental effects blue device screen lights can have on your skin in our recent Lockdown Skin is Really a Thing’ article; highlighting the repercussions of being home for longer periods. Staying indoors means less vitamin D and wearing masks can also leave pesky bacteria on your skin causing media dubbed ‘Maskne’ (for us normal folk, that’s acne caused by wearing a mask, don’t you know…).
The effects are clearly noticeable; whether you have drier skin, you’re breaking out more often or seeing unusual redness, your skin is probably not looking its usual tip-top self.  So it’s clear that now more than ever, taking care of your skin matters as it’s getting a bit of a raw deal! Whether you usually see a practitioner for regular professional skin treatments or not, it’s never too late to start looking after your skin (and believe me, it will thank you!). 

Skin Saviour “Where Art WOW”?

The WOW Mask by WOW facial is a hydrogel sheet mask that is used as one of the stages of our full WOW facial treatment, however, it was originally designed to be a stand-alone treatment and it can be used at home with ease. The WOW Mask is loaded with stem cells and peptides which both calm and hydrate the skin. 

The Mask by WOW facial is created using a unique technology called TCD (Transdermal Cosmetic Delivery) whereby the active ingredients that sit on the underside of the mask are activated by the temperature of the skin which aids their penetration power. The mask is used after clinic needling procedures due to its brilliant calming and penetrative properties, it’s also a fantastic home skin booster, leaving the skin feeling bouncier and looking beautifully dewy. Not only is it great to use before applying make-up when you want to give your skin that extra bit of WOW, but it’s also great at reducing redness and rehydrating your skin after drinking alcohol.

An Active Ingredient Powerhouse

The active ingredients within The WOW Mask offer anti-inflammatory, calming and anti-septic properties, making it the ideal treatment after needling, but essentially to calm any form of redness or inflammation.

With 4% Hyaluronic Acid added to strengthen the skin structure, and prevent water loss, the mask helps to form a protective layer on the skin, to hydrate and promote skin regeneration from deep within. The Rhododendron Leaf Extract supports and stimulates epidermal regeneration while Alpine Rose Leaf Extract combined with Malus Domestica Fruit Cell Culture Extract work to both improve and enhance stem cell regeneration by enabling faster multiplication to give you more elasticity, for thicker and stronger skin.  Last but not least, the Chamomilla Recutita Flower Extract provides highly healing, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that help reduce any redness and improve the appearance of broken capillaries, acne, rashes, and burns.

Your Face or Mine?

Unlike other masks, The Mask by WOW facial actually comes in two halves; so that you can place the top and bottom half perfectly on your face, making it suitable for all face shapes and sizes. Additionally, eye covers are included to rehydrate and rejuvenate the most delicate area of your face, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and puffiness at the same time.

Whether you try a The Mask by WOW facial at your chosen skin clinic, as part of the full six-stage facial or you simply want to pamper your skin at home with professional product, rest assured your skin will be truly boosted, leaving it looking revitalised, rejuvenated and beautifully luminous with a glow that really WOWs.
