The Science Behind Hydra-Firm Gel Mask
Our Hydra-Firm Gel Mask leads to age-defying results using a synergistic blend of five cutting-edge active ingredients. Its clinically proven results are remarkable, such as a 33.4% increase in elasticity and a 56.3% increase in firmness in the first four weeks of treatment.
Hydra-Firm Gel Mask is packed with peptides, marine algae, Vitacell® botanical yeast complex, strawberry seed oil and more. It helps tighten lines and wrinkles to lessen their appearance while hydrating, protecting and revitalizing younger-looking skin. Five potent active ingredients combine to make Hydra-Firm Gel Mask one of the most multitasking gel masks on the market.
There are five main active ingredients in Hydra-Firm Gel Mask:
- Tetrapeptide-4 supports elastin- and collagen-depleted skin to reduce lines and wrinkles. As a small molecule, this peptide readily penetrates skin. It also reduces free radical damage caused by blue (HEV) light.
- Botanical Yeast Complex increases skin cells’ oxygen uptake and respiration. This increases skin cell energy levels, lifting them and reducing sagging. It also helps skin cells remove pollutants, repair, regenerate, and grow faster and more effectively; restoring the appearance of tired, dull skin.
- Marine Algae targets skin laxity and protects from the visible effects of pollution. In particular, marine algae is especially effective at tightening under-eye bags and sagging/wrinkling skin. Like the botanical yeast complex, marine algae also boosts energy levels in cells by increasing ATP production.
- Strawberry Seed Extract is an occlusive that restores and protects the skin barrier by promoting ceramides, filaggrin, and involucrin. This protects the skin by preventing harmful substances from entering, while moisturizing by reducing water loss.
- Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil is a natural antioxidant that protects and detoxifies, eliminating free radicals in the skin before they can cause any damage. This ingredient also gives the mask its naturally pink color.
In addition to these active ingredients, Hydra-Firm Gel Mask includes rose essential oil, giving it a pleasant, light fragrance and a calming aromatherapeutic effect.
Clinically Proven Results
Subjects applied Hydra-Firm Gel Mask over their evening regimen every night in a four-week clinical study.
In just four weeks:
- Skin elasticity (tightness) increased by 33.4%.
- Skin firmness increased by 56.3%.
- Improvements to skin smoothness were measured in 100% of patients.
- 90.3% of subjects agreed that their skin appearance improved within the first two weeks of use.
- 100% of subjects agreed that their skin felt more hydrated.
- 100% of subjects agreed that their skin felt softer.
Patients who try Hydra-Firm Gel Mask note that their skin feels significantly more hydrated, softer, and tighter, with lessened appearance of lines and wrinkles. Because of this, Hydra-Firm Gel Mask is a fantastic product for a strong anti-aging regimen.
To Maximize Results
There’s more to using Hydra-Firm Gel Mask than simply as a facial mask. Here are two secrets that will yield even better results.
First, have patients apply the mask over their evening regimen, as the last step, and leave it on overnight. As an occlusive mask, this causes their other skincare products to get absorbed even better, increasing the whole regimen’s potency. Rinse the mask off in the morning. “Slugging” – using an occlusive substance overnight to increase regimen potency – is popular these days on social media. Instead of using petrolatum, which is frequently cited on social media, we highly recommend Hydra-Firm Gel Mask thanks to its clinically proven results, multiple benefits, and pleasant feel.
Second, patients can apply Hydra-Firm Gel Mask to their neck, chest, and hands to help keep skin hydrated throughout the day. It’s great for dry winter weather, airplanes, rough skin, and the eye area especially.
Who It’s For
Hydra-Firm Gel Mask is safe and beneficial for all skin types. In addition to its anti-aging properties this mask helps moisturize acneic, reddened and irritated skin and prevent future irritation. It’s a powerhouse product for anyone seeking more youthful-looking skin. For a more purifying, pore-clearing sensitive skin intervention, we recommend our Pink Clay Purifying Mask.
Combine It With These
Hydra-Firm Gel Mask is a must-try for anyone seeking younger-looking, healthy skin, and it’s a fantastic synergizer to increase the potency of other products in a regimen. We especially recommend combining it with these two products.
Hydra-Firm Gel Mask is fantastic when used with retinoid-containing products, like Advanced Retinol, significantly reducing the sensitizing effects of retinization. Applying the mask over a retinoid-containing evening regimen will help the retinoid get absorbed while simultaneously providing the skin with nutrients and moisture to preserve the skin barrier and avoid dehydration, redness, and peeling.
We also recommend combining with Lip Benefits®, our fast-acting lip plumper, which uses peptides to increase lip volume in both the short- and long-term. These two pink products are a great combo for Valentine’s Day, helping patients look and feel younger and more beautiful with more radiant, firmer skin.
