Face Masque Guide

The benefits of “masking up” are bountiful. Not only are you taking some time to give yourself a little extra self-care, but you are also nourishing your skin with treatments that further enhance its health and beauty. Whether you are making a DIY mask, applying a luxurious treatment mask at home, or visiting your skincare provider for a professional mask, your skin will thank you for practicing this ritual.


How often you should mask will depend on the specific type you choose to apply. Some masks can be applied every couple of days. Others that are more intense should be applied on a weekly or even monthly basis.


Knowing what masque to use for your skin condition is also important. If you are dry or have sensitive skin, look for masks containing hydrating ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid. If you are blemish-prone and want to improve texture, look for masks that offer exfoliating benefits and contain ingredients such as Salicylic Acid.


iS Clinical offers a wide variety of masques for both at home and professional options. They are multitasking treatments that have been thoughtfully formulated to target several skin concerns that deliver noticeable results.

At-Home Masks

Hydra-Intensive Cooling Masque

Hydra-Intensive Cooling Masque is a rich, luxurious cooling treatment designed to invigorate, refresh, and provide soothing hydration. This professional strength formula (available for home-use) features powerful botanical antioxidants, which are perfectly balanced with botanically sourced Hyaluronic Acid - nature’s most powerful hydrator.


Apply this lightweight gel masque to quench dry, dehydrated, or sensitive skin. It is also excellent for sunburns and post-sun exposure. A great feature of Hydra-Intensive Cooling Masque is washing it off is optional. You can apply it without rinsing before bed and wake up feeling luminous, fresh, and hydrated.


Hydra-Intensive Cooling Masque can be used by all skin types. It is especially beneficial to those with dehydrated skin, blemish-prone skin, sunburn, or non-ablative post-procedure skin.


Benefits:


  • Delivers powerful hydration
  • Provides a cool, refreshing sensation
  • Contains soothing botanical antioxidants

Directions:


After cleansing, apply a layer evenly over your face and neck. Leave masque on 5-10 minutes. May leave on or rinse with water.

Tri-Active Exfoliating Masque

 

Tri-Active Exfoliating Masque combines powerful botanical enzymes, Salicylic Acid, and eco-friendly micro-beads to provide an ideal combination of both physical enzymatic and biochemical exfoliation. The luxurious aroma of Brazilian Blood Orange will have you feeling pampered and provides added antioxidant protection.

 


Apply this transformative treatment masque to clean skin once a week, or as directed to help dramatically smooth, brighten, and soften your skin. Tri-Active Exfoliating Masque can be used on normal, dry, oily or combination skin. It is designed primarily for those looking to target rough skin texture, fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged or congested pores, or dull skin.


Benefits:


  • Instantly smooths and polishes skin
  • Gives the appearance of smaller pores
  • Visibly improves the signs of aging
  • Helps improve the appearance of blemish-prone skin

Directions:


Moisten face with water then apply a thin even layer, gently rubbing in a circular motion and let sit. Leave masque on for up to five minutes to allow enzymes to function. A gentle warming sensation may occur due to an increase in micro-circulation. Rinse with water and immediately pat dry.


Pro Tip: Give your skin an at-home spa treatment by double cleansing and double masking! Apply Tri-Active Exfoliating Masque to clean skin. Once removed, follow up with Hydra-Intensive Cooling Masque. These hydrating and calming ingredients will pair perfectly after being freshly exfoliated. This is any easy at-home method to maximize results.
