Jouviance Soft Peel Mask

Jouviance Glyco Laser Soft Peel MaskRecently, I have been testing out Jouviance’s Glyco Laser as home peel treatments, which sound scary with laser in the name and glycolic acid being a key ingredient.  But, before anyone gets too scared and clicks away I have to tell you, my skin has never been happier. My skin looks more radiant, smooth and even.

Jouviance’s Soft Peel Mask is formulated with 5% glycolic acid. It exfoliates, boosts the skin’s radiance and resurfaces the skin. It helps to reduce fine lines, fight photoaging and wrinkles. It will help reduce pore size, hyper pigmentation and sun damage, while treating blackheads and pimples. It is a product suitable for all ages and skin types (even sensitive).

Having recently over exfoliated my skin with a physical exfoliant (probably the most painful experience ever) I love that this product can exfoliate my skin without having to use a physical exfoliant. The non-drying formula uses BHA and AHA along with two earth clays to provide amazing multi-action exfoliation.

I use this product about once a week and I have noticed amazing results. I apply a thin layer for 10 minutes and then remove with warm water. It does have a slight tingling sensation on the skin that I really enjoy. It makes me feel like the product is really working on my skin. Instantly my skin is smooth, soft and glowing. It is an amazing product if you are looking for that instant gratification.

Beauty Sleep = Dream Cream

Overnight Face MasksI don’t care what Beyonce says, I did not wake up like this. Unfortunately, I don’t know her secret, but I do know a secret about how to wake up with happier skin. It comes in the form of overnight facial masks or what I like to call dream cream.

What is an overnight face mask? Overnight face masks, like your everyday masks, are applied to the skin after cleansing, but rather than wearing it during an episode of your latest Netflix binge you wear it while you sleep and wash it off in the morning. Also, I should point out it is best to let it dry for 15-20 minutes before you hit the pillow, otherwise it is going to be enjoyed entirely by your pillow. I found that out the hard way with white bedding.

What makes dream cream so great? While you sleep your skin goes into restoration, the fastest way I can explain this is by saying that your skin works to repair any damage and rejuvenate skin cells. For a much more detailed scientific definition google it – it is actually so cool all the things your skin does while you’re sleeping. Applying an overnight mask creates a protective layer over then skin and further enhances the restoration process by adding hydration, antioxidants and all that other good stuff into the skin. As a result you wake up looking refreshed and your skin will thank you for it.

Another great thing about overnight masks is that they offer a variety of different treatment options – hydrating, brightening, anti-aging… Here are a few to try (captured in the photo above):
