Peel-off face mask infused with glycolic acid to erase pigmentation, refine skin’s texture and purify pores. Glycolic acid gently exfoliates and brightens skin eliminating dark spots and freckles for an even and clear complexion. The peel-off mask removes dirt and oil from deep within the skin’s pores helping to minimise the appearance of pores.
How to use
Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, avoiding the eye area, eyebrows, hairline and lips. Once completely dry, gently peel off mask starting from the outer edges. Wash off any residue with water. Follow with moisturiser or a Skin Republic Face Mask Sheet.
Warning: These masks are serious on exfoliation. Please conduct a patch test before using to check skin sensitivity. Apply a thin layer avoiding sensitive areas such as around the eyes, eyebrows, hairline and mouth.
Glycolic acid belongs to the alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) family. The small molecular structure of glycolic acid allows it to penetrate the skin more readily, allowing it to work deep within the pores. Glycolic acid loosens the build up of dead skin cells and oils to help reduce blackheads and breakouts.
The exfoliating action of glycolic acid removes old skin cells, helping to reduce pigmentation for a more even skin tone. Glycolic acid has also been shown to stimulate collagen production, which will help reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Glycolic acid also improves absorption of other ingredients, like retinol or vitamin C, enhancing their effect on the skin.
