I have professed my love of hyaluronic acid in the past, but in case I didn't get my point across, I will now discuss my love of masks that contain hyaluronic acid. To be more specific, my new love for the Age Recovery Mask from Dr. Dennis Gross.
Dr. Dennis Gross is all about anti-aging, and probably most known for his Alpha Beta Daily Face Peels. The Age Erase Recovery Mask is another treatment product within his line that I think compliments the Alpha Beta Peel amazingly. The mask is self-heating, contains professional strength hyaluronic acid and active vitamin D. The combination of the hyaluronic and the mask warming up on your skin feels so soothing, especially of you have "crunchy" skin, like myself.
I like to use a peel (the Dr. Gross Alpha Beta Peels are great, but any glycolic or salicylic peel that you love is fine) to get my skin nice and exfoliated and then apply this mask and allow it to sit for about 10 minutes. The directions will tell you to use the mask weekly, but I find that every two weeks or twice a month is enough to keep my skin soft and glowing.
Not that anyone NEEDS to see that I actually use this product, but I do, as proven here in unnecessarymaskpic, or UMP. It is worth pointing out that the product tends to pool in the areas on my cheeks and around my mouth that tend to be the most dry. I definitely feel like my makeup, foundation especially, goes on one-million times smoother after I have used the Age Recovery Mask.
Side note: if you have acneic or even just very oily skin you may despise this mask. It is extremely thick, somewhat hard to remove and leaves skin feeling slightly sticky.
