Firming face masks
Anti-ageing masks for providing intensive care for mature skin
The skin needs elastin and collagen for a firm, healthy complexion. Because the skin produces less of this as we age, the skin's elasticity is reduced. Anti-ageing masks provide mature skin with exactly the active ingredients it needs, giving the complexion more freshness. In this way, you can help prevent premature signs of skin ageing.
How does an anti-ageing mask work?
Anti-ageing masks contain a range of different ingredients that are particularly suitable for providing intensive care for mature skin. The products supply this type of skin with lots of moisture and important nutrients. Hydrating face masks should refresh your complexion and firm up the outer layer of skin, which can have a plumping effect. They make the complexion appear more youthful and full. Wrinkles appear reduced. Antioxidants such as omega-6 and omega-9 as well as vitamins A, C and E protect against free radicals. This lets the skin shine and improves its elasticity, and in doing so can combat the skin’s ageing process.
Most anti-wrinkle face masks contain hyaluronic acid. They have a hydrating effect and balance out the skin’s moisture content. These cosmetic products make the skin more even, visually smooth out wrinkles and give the complexion a delicate glow. Classic ingredients of anti-wrinkle masks include:
- Hyaluronic acid
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin A
- Amino acids
- Vitamin C
- Coenzyme Q10
Vitamin A (retinol) should give the skin a younger appearance and increase its elasticity. This active ingredient stimulates collagen production, which the lower layers of skin need to keep the skin elastic and firm. Anti-wrinkle face masks with retinol can reduce the depth of wrinkles. This creates a smooth, even complexion. At the same time, it increases the skin’s resistance against external influences. What's more, this ingredient supports the skin’s ability to regenerate and contributes to maintaining an optimal moisture balance.
Many cosmetics manufacturers rely on active ingredients from medical research, which allows them to set themselves apart from other brands, for example with plant stem cells or epidermal growth factor EGF. Spilanthol in particular has proven to be effective. This active ingredient obtained from paracress is known as organic botox. It should smooth out laughter lines, reduce the depth of wrinkles and give the skin a more even appearance. Unlike injections with the botulinum toxin, these products are completely risk-free.
Which anti-ageing masks reduce pigmentation?
Over time, the skin can develop what is known as hyperpigmentation. These dark spots are mainly caused by hormonal fluctuations and sun damage. Anti-wrinkle face masks with vitamin C combat unevenness in the skin tone. At the same time, they protect against free radicals. These are caused by pollution, UV radiation, stress and smoking. This vitamin stimulates collagen production and helps the skin to regenerate itself. Active ingredients such as melanoxyl reduce melanin production to prevent pigmentation.
How do you use an anti-wrinkle mask?
Before you apply the mask onto your skin with your fingers or a wide brush, you should first cleanse it thoroughly. It's best to use a scrub to open up the pores and get rid of any flakes of dead skin. In this way, the nourishing ingredients can be absorbed deep into the skin.
Spread the product generously onto your face, neck and décolleté. Avoid the mouth and eye area. Most anti-ageing masks have an application time of 15 to 20 minutes. Afterwards, you can remove any residue, depending on the type of product, with lukewarm water or a tissue.
A sheet mask is particularly easy to use. You simply place it on your face after cleansing and allow the beneficial, firming ingredients to absorb for several minutes. At the end of the application time, massage the rest of the remaining serum into the skin and throw away the masks in the normal household waste.
