Everything You Need to Know About COSMEDIX Sheet Masks

We’ve all tried our fair share of sheet masks, the indulgent serum-soaked facial treatments that are designed to give skin an instant boost of glow. They’re popular for good reason—easy-to-use, ultra-hydrating and hyper-targeted. But what makes them indispensable to a luxe skincare routine?

COSMEDIX has combined the best of its clean, clinical and luxurious skincare line with the accessibility of the sheet mask to create two powerhouse, skincare-infused sheet masks that are designed to help take your skin care to the next level. Today, we’re taking a deep dive into COSMEDIX sheet masks, the new Bio-Cellulose and fan favorite Micro—your next must-have facial treatments from COSMEDIX.

New Bio-Cellulose Radiant & Rejuvenating Mask Set

This new COSMEDIX sheet mask treatment set is just what your at-home or in-spa skin care needs to help promote an age-defying complexion. Including two Damask Rose-Infused Sheet Masks and two Vitamin C-Infused Sheet Masks, this sheet mask set helps Hydrate and Energize the look of your complexion.

Bio-Cellulose helps deliver intense hydration, reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles and brighten the appearance of skin for a more vibrant-looking complexion. It’s truly a stand-out performer, and here’s why:

Made with Bio-Cellulose Fiber:

  • Formulated with nata de coco, a fermented coconut fruit extract, Bio-Cellulose is made from completely natural materials and contains no parabens, sulfates or phthalates
  • Bio-Cellulose acts like a second-skin by fitting tightly onto the skin and creating a barrier that helps increase product absorption and prevent evaporation—providing an intensely hydrating skincare experience

Hydrate: Key Ingredient Spotlight

Infused with Damask Rose, Hydrate Sheet Masks are infused with a moisture rich serum that helps revitalize the look of skin. These skin-soothing face masks help improve elasticity and firmness of skin for a more radiant-looking complexion.

  • Rose Water: This deeply conditioning botanical replenishes the skin with vital moisture to help revitalize the look of skin and help prevent the appearance of aging with ultimate hydration
  • Sodium Hyaluronate: Everyone’s favorite cousin of Hyaluronic Acid that helps penetrate even better into the skin, this powerhouse skin care ingredient helps boost moisture levels in skin for the appearance of plumper, more supple-looking skin
  • Sophora Japonica Flower Extract: Also known as the Japanese Pagoda Tree, this skin-soothing plant extract helps protect skin from environmental stressors

Energize: Key Ingredient Spotlight

Infused with Vitamin C, Energize Sheet Masks help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for an improved look of skin tone and texture. These skin-conditioning face mask skincare products help brighten and awaken the appearance of skin for a more even-looking complexion.

  • Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract: Derived from the fruit of the lemon tree and rich in Vitamin C, this skin-conditioning extract helps promote a healthier-looking complexion
  • Vitamin C (Sodium Ascorbate): Converting to popular Vitamin C derivative ascorbic acid when applied to skin, Sodium Ascorbate helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve the look of skin tone and texture
  • Seaweed Extract: This sea-derived botanical ingredient helps soothe and soften the look of skin, as well as helping to improve the appearance of skin tone and texture

  • Almond Oil: Rich in Vitamin E, this deeply conditioning botanical oil helps soothe and replenish the look of skin
  • Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil: Derived from the coconut tree, this hydrating skin conditioner is rich in antioxidants for healthier-looking skin

Holiday Party Prep: A Skincare Routine That Truly Lets it Glow

Late nights, indulgent drinks and eye-catching makeup are all hallmarks of the holiday season—rites of passage, some might say—but can leave skin looking (and feeling) more than a little tired in the morning. COSMEDIX is here with 5 of our tried-and-true skincare tips that will help your skin look glowing for every “descending the staircase” moment this holiday season.

1. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate.

We know you hear this all the time, but it’s for a good thousand reasons. A combination of cold, dry outside air and indoor dry heat can really accelerate moisture loss within the skin. Here’s how we recommend hydrating your skin during the winter for holiday party prep:

2. Find a Lip Mask You Love.

Rough, chapped or cracked lips are often a result of having dry lips this time of year. To intensely hydrate lips and help protect/alleviate chapping and dry lips, try Enhance Lip-Plumping Mask. This serum-like mask treatment is formulated with a unique blend of high-performance oils and natural emollients that not only help improve the appearance of lips, but also help create a fuller-looking pout. Use as an overnight treatment or a few minutes before lip product application for best results.

3. Double-Cleanse.

Everyone’s least favorite party guest: the pimple. They’re *never* invited, but pre-party stress and increased heavy makeup usage can leave the door open for breakouts at the most inopportune times. While it’s so tempting to just give it a squeeze, it’s not worth the potential redness, inflammation or discoloration that may come as a result.

To help your skin stay as clean as possible (without drying it out), double cleanse with Purity Solution Nourishing Deep Cleansing Oil and Benefit Clean Gentle Cleanser to wash away daily pore-clogging impurities for a smoother-looking complexion. If you’re in need of spot treatment, apply Correct Rapid Relief Acne Treatment for a diminished appearance of blemishes thanks to Salicylic Acid and Aloe Vera.

4. Consider Your Neckline.

We recommend giving your chest the same skin-loving care you give your face… especially during party season! Apply Illuminate and Lift Neck & Décolleté Treatment with upward strokes from the décolleté to the jawline for a reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as a firmer look and feel of skin.

Acid v Enzyme Exfoliation: An In-Depth Look at Pure Enzymes & PHA Hydration Peel

If you’re in the market for the “glowing, dewy looking” skin that’s all the rage (for good reason), now is the perfect time to start implementing exfoliation into your skincare routine to help your skin look radiant all throughout the year. Today, COSMEDIX is here to shed light on two of our gentle exfoliating skincare products formulated with powerhouse ingredients that promote a healthier-looking complexion: Pure Enzymes Cranberry Exfoliating Mask and PHA Hydration Peel Refining Exfoliator!

Why Exfoliate?

Even if dirt, oil and impurities aren’t visible to the naked eye, the skin undergoes a lot beneath the surface. Washing your face sometimes isn’t enough if you’re hoping not only to wash off the day, but also to make strides in improving the look of uneven texture and other skin concerns. Exfoliating your complexion 2-3 times a week is the perfect extra step to help:

  • Draw out pore-clogging impurities
  • Shed dead skin and encourage healthy skin renewal
  • Even the appearance of skin tone and texture
  • Boost product absorption

Now that we know why we should exfoliate, let’s get into the products!

What is Pure Enzymes?

Pure Enzymes is a luxe Cranberry Exfoliating Mask that gently polishes away dead, dull surface skin to help reveal a softer, more radiant-looking complexion.

Powered by L-Lactic Acid and Cranberry Enzymes, this indulgent mask treatment focuses on lifting away dull skin to help brighten and even the look of skin tone. It also helps protect skin from environmental stressors and boosts hydration!

What is PHA Hydration Peel?

PHA Hydration Peel is a spa-like at-home peel treatment that gently exfoliates away dull, dead skin to help illuminate the appearance of your complexion.

A multi-acid Level 1 exfoliant that’s gentle enough for all skin types, this Refining Exfoliator helps soften, smooth and brighten the appearance of skin for a more even-looking complexion. It’s formulated with über-gentle yet exfoliating skincare ingredients like Polyhydroxy Acid and Alpha Hydroxy Acid to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Acids v. Enzymes

Enzymes, often derived from fruits, help break down keratin—i.e. the protein of dead skin cells. They help shed off dead skin and help create a smoother-looking skin surface.

Acids go deeper beneath the surface of the skin, helping to improve the look of your complexion from the inside out.

While enzymes are generally touted as the gentler option, both Pure Enzymes and the PHA Hydration Peel can be used on even the most sensitive of skin.

Use Our Skin-loving Pure Enzymes Cranberry Exfoliating Mask to:

  • Gently exfoliate away and shed off dead skin from the skin’s surface to help create a smoother-looking complexion
  • Indulge in exfoliation multiple times per week. We recommend using Pure Enzymes up to two times per week for 3-10 minutes
  • Provide a boost of radiance to your skin

As written in InStyle: “Expect to feel a slight tingle” while the mask rests, “but after rinsing it off, you’ll be left with a clear, dewy glow.”

Use PHA Hydration Peel to:

  • Gently exfoliate underneath the surface of skin for a brighter-looking complexion
  • Follow a simple, once-a-week exfoliation routine that helps improve the look of skin with just 10 minutes
  • Supplement trips to the spa with an aesthetician-grade at-home peel treatment

Owner and founder of luxe L.A. based spa, Glow Skincare—as well as 2018 COSMEDIX Aesthetician of the Year—Kasey Boone says, “There’s typically little to no downtime! This peel is going to lightly exfoliate and give deep hydration to the skin.”
