What they say: Pollution’s dirty secret is that it can enter every pore, every day. Defend your skin with PREVAGE® City Smart Double Action Detox Peel Off Mask. It acts like a liquid magnet to lift and remove impurities instantly while resurfacing skin and enhancing its natural detoxification system. Peel to reveal a brighter, smoother, virtually poreless-looking complexion.
Using powerful ingredients including antioxidants, a smart polymer and a botanical blend, PREVAGE® City Smart Double Action Detox Peel Off Mask helps to perfect your complexion by removing accumulated surface toxins, peeling away dirt, oil and pollutants from the skin — supporting skin’s natural detoxification system by gentle exfoliation. This smooth, gel formula delivers both immediate and long term detoxifying results.
What I say: Many things can cause skin dullness, but pollution is near the top of the list of main culprits. Dullness is a condition that afflicts all skin types and ages (some more than others, but we all get it at some stage). And those of us who live or work in cities or industrial environments are exposed to the most disgusting levels of pollution all day, every day. This is why antioxidant protection is an absolute must in every skincare routine.
But there is only so much antioxidants can protect against, which is why we need all the help we can get in the fight against free radical damage. And that’s where this mask comes in. As they say above, it acts like a magnet to draw out any impurities from the skin, allowing it to repair and protect itself.
As the names suggests, it’s a peel off mask. You spread it on, and leave until completely dry (normally about 20 minutes), and then peel off. I love the feeling of peel off masks, as I find it so satisfying – this isn’t one of those that rips all your hair out, either, it just adheres to the grime.
It leaves the skin looking fresh, smooth and bright. I use mine every two weeks or so, depending on how much time I spend in the city. If I’ve been in the CBD all day, I go home and apply it immediately. It’s great for all skin types, and is an absolute must-have for those in urban areas.
