From the ultimate Sunday treat, to work their magic whilst you sleep it seems face masks these days are the ultimate at-home treat with salon facial results. From glow-boosting to deep hydration there is a mask out there for everyone but it ultimately comes down to the results you are looking for.
The main function of our skin is to act as a barrier against environmental damage. The outer layer is highly cellular and provides the barrier function and the inner layer keeps the strength and elasticity, both start to diminish with as we go through life or over-expose ourselves to UV radiation. When you are children or young adults the skin naturally contains high levels of Vitamin C which supports the collagen but also offers antioxidant protection. As we age these concentrations weaken and the need to supplement them becomes necessary - this is why we apply topical Vitamin C.
