Peptides are one of the most talked-about ingredients in the field of skincare, you could even say that they’re #SOHOTRIGHTNOW. These little chains of amino acids demonstrate remarkable benefits when it comes to revitalising your skin and making it more resilient and stronger but if you’re sitting here thinking, “wait, what are peptides?” then click here and come back when you’re all caught up on our latest blog!
Read it? Perfect. Welcome back, honey! Do you feel like a sponge? Because there is a lot to take in. But that’s okay, we can take it slow and I promise not to geek out too hard. At ASI, we love peptides so much that we’ve sneaked these bad boys into a bunch of our products and this 4 part series is going to break down some of our favourite ones that champion these revolutionary peptide and growth factors. So buckle up, because today we’re highlighting our Dermal Face Lift Mask!
This revolutionary mask has been formulated as an instant anti-ageing solution and is suitable for all skin types. The sheet mask contains 5 revolutionary peptides and growth factors designed to dramatically reduces the visible signs of ageing on the entire face and ensures a hit of lasting hydration. It is instantly wrinkle filling and will leave you feeling rejuvenated. Because of her plumping effects that also boost collagen, elastin and hydration - she is the perfect party mask to be used before a big event or whenever your skin needs that extra boost. Because the mask is drenched in a concentrated cocktail of these active ingredients, and packed sous-vide style into a single use pouch, it is also the perfect healing mask for anyone suffering from skin issues such as acne, eczema or psoriasis.
What are the 5 key ingredients and their benefits?
Copper Tripeptide-1: is a small protein peptide that belongs to a group of emergency response molecules which are released during the body’s natural wound healing process to speed up tissue repair. This peptide improves the elasticity of the skin and smooths out wrinkles with increasing biosynthesis of collagen and elastin.
sh-Oligopeptide-1: also called Epidermal Growth Factor or EGF, this baby right here is probably one of the most famous peptides. It is a powerful protein that helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier functions as well as promotes skin healing, increases the rate of skin renewal, and slows down skin thinning.
sh-Oligopeptide-2: this peptide belongs to the same family as its far better-known sister, Sh-Oligopeptide-1 and can influence fibroblast functioning and collagen induction. It also helps to reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles by actively generating new skin cells.
sh-Polypeptide-1: a cell signalling protein peptide that stimulates fibroblast cell growth and proliferation which helps to prevent fine lines and wrinkle formation by creating new and healthy epidermal cells.
sh-Polypeptide-2: Strong antioxidant that reduces free radicals and inhibits the aged skin cells to provide a gorgeous, bright and radiant complexion by reinforcing skin’s defence and barrier function whilst also reducing redness and uneven skin tone
How to use the Dermal Face Lift Mask ?
- Simply tear or cut open the top of the Dermal Face Lift Mask pouch being careful not to accidentally cut into the mask itself.
- The pouch will have quite a bit of serum inside so careful not to spill it everywhere. Remove the mask and unfold it (it might drip a little… don’t worry there is plenty of serum).
- Find the eyes, nose and mouth cut-outs and drape accordingly over your skin.
- Smooth down the sheet and adjust its position, so it covers your face completely and leave on for at least 30 minutes.
- Pro-tip: pour out any leftover serum and apply to your neck, décolletage and hands. You want to get every last drop of goodness!
- Leave it on until it’s fully dry and simply lift it off and throw it out when you’re done.
So, go on... get glowing! Grab yourself a Dermal Face Lift Mask and get snapping!
