Sneak Peek: Up Your Face Mask Skin Care Routine With These Vitamin-Rich Masks
What to enhance your skin's natural glow? Try these new face mask skin care products on your next relaxing night-in.
First popularized in South Korea, face masks have become one of the staples of modern self-care. Compared to other variants, sheet masks have gained popularity for their accessibility, convenience, and affordable price point. In the Philippines – where we love our K-pop, K-drama, as well as K-beauty – sheet masks are as integrated into our daily routines as cleansing and moisturizing. Wearing one is a nice way to de-stress and experience a little pampering at home.
Benefits of Sheet Masks
Sheet masks are single-use cotton masks that come pre-soaked in serums. The cloth creates an occlusive barrier that seals in the serum and allows the skin to absorb it. Through a wide range of ingredients, they promote softer, smoother skin right after each application.
Face mask skin care also helps tighten pores and brighten skin with regular use. They are an easy and convenient way to give your skin a hydration or nutrition boost, especially after a long day or right before an important event. Celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Victoria Beckham, and Zendaya love applying face masks right before going on the red carpet as a soothing and hydrating makeup prep.
Load Up on Vitamins with POND’S Vitamin Duo Sheet Masks
Here’s something new to add to your face mask rotation: POND’S Vitamin Duo Sheet Masks. By combining the best technologies in skincare, this sheet mask unites the power of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant-rich, skin-loving ingredients from nature to make the skin hydrated and glowing. Formulated by Korean experts, it has 50x Vitaboosters, which draw nutrients to the skin for a more effective and relaxing masking experience.
Fruits in Your Skin Care
Fruits are full of antioxidants that reduce inflammation, boost immunity, prevent infections, and protect the skin against UV damage. Apart from incorporating them into your diet, another great way to reap the glow-boosting benefits of fruits is through your sheet masks.
POND’S Vitamin Duo Sheet Masks come in multiple variants that harness the power of fruits. These sheet masks are infused with extracts from tomato, pineapple, avocado – three fruits with powerful antioxidant and nourishing capabilities. Tomato is known to stimulate collagen production and smoothen skin. Pineapple brightens skin and evens out the skin tone, while avocado has nourishing and healing properties to help keep skin healthy.
Let’s discover more about these ingredients and variants here:
POND'S Vitamin Duo Plumping Sheet Mask with Vitamin B6 + Tomato for plump and smooth skin
Vitamin B6, or pyridoxine, is a water-soluble vitamin naturally found in foods. It plays a vital role in disease prevention. According to a National Institutes of Health study, vitamin B6 decreases inflammation and helps synthesize collagen – the most abundant protein in your body. POND’S Vitamin Duo Plumping Sheet Mask harnesses this powerful ingredient to replenish natural amino acids and lipids, so the skin is kept plump and moist. It also includes the extracts of tomato, an antioxidant-dense fruit, to help restore the loss of skin elasticity and maintain skin smoothness.
Pro Tip: Take the sheet mask off before it dries completely. Letting the sheet dry up on your skin can lead to irritation and dryness, defeating its purpose.
POND'S Vitamin Duo Brightening Sheet Mask with Vitamin C + Pineapple for bright and radiant skin
This brightening face mask combines vitamins and antioxidant-rich natural ingredients to boost each other, resulting in brighter skin from first use. Vitamin C is a vital nutrient that helps suppress melanin production to prevent dark spots and exfoliate dull skin. Pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain, which has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties, and is known to make dark spots and acne marks less visible.
Pro Tip: Squeeze out excess serum from the packaging and apply it on your neck in brisk, upward strokes and other parts of your body that need a bit more moisturizing, such as the elbows, arms, and knees.
POND'S Vitamin Duo Nourishing Sheet Mask with Vitamin E + Avocado for nourished and moisturized skin
POND'S Vitamin Duo Nourishing Sheet Mask with Vitamin E + Avocado helps skin achieve a fresh, dewy glow with nourishing ingredients. It is formulated with vitamin E, another powerful antioxidant that fights UV damage in the skin and nourishes skin to prevent signs of aging. It also helps to prevent irritation and reduce the appearance of scars. At the same time, avocado – packed with oleic and linoleic acid – nourishes and heals dry and flaky skin from deep within the epidermis.
Pro Tip: While you're masking, use a jade roller to give yourself a gentle massage and boost absorption. Roll in long, upward strokes along the jawline, just below the cheekbones and up to your temples, and over your forehead.
Using face masks is more than just a way to relax. With these sheet masks in your skincare routine, your relaxing me-time is also an effective way to hydrate skin and give it a radiant glow.
