There’s a new skin care trend emerging and here at Your Luxe Lifestyle, we predict it’s going to be a big one. Enter: cryo face masks.
Cryotherapy is already a popular spa treatment and it’s all over Instagram at the moment, too. It works by subjecting the skin to cold temperatures in order to increase blood flow to the skin and banish puffiness. It could be as simple as leaving your jade roller or gua sha in the freezer overnight or using ice globes.
Cryo face masks, however, take cold therapy to the next level and offer some serious skin care benefits. With big names like Charlotte Tilbury and Dr. Jart + releasing cryo face masks, many more brands are sure to follow.
Cryo face masks combine acupressure and cryotherapy to lift, firm and smooth your face. Cold temperatures increase blood flow to your face and rejuvenate the muscles, giving you a beautifully contoured look. The rubber masks are also combined with powerful skincare ingredients which further replenish your skin. Usually, they come with an ampoule of serum you apply before placing the mask on your skin. Some masks are single use whilst others are reusable.
An at-home cryo face mask is the perfect way to prep your skin for a special event or a great regular addition to your skincare routine.
Place the mask in the freezer for 15-30 minutes, depending on the product instructions. While it cools, wash your face with a gentle cleanser.
Take the mask out of the freezer. Apply the serum to your skin or choose one of your own – for more on the best luxury serums on the market, check out this article.
Fasten the mask to your skin according to the packet instructions and leave it on for 10-30 minutes; again, check the instructions of your chosen mask. If you wish, you can gently massage your face.
Remove the mask and either dispose or clean and store for next time. Enjoy the instant results and repeat once per week to see lasting improvements over time.
As mentioned, Charlotte Tilbury and Dr Jart + are the leading cryo face mask brands right now.
Charlotte Tilbury’s mask is more expensive but it can also be used multiple times. The brand claims that skin feels lifted up to 258% and 243% smoother. It’s very easy to use and doesn’t drip everywhere, and it feels so nice and relaxing. It only takes ten minutes to use and you really can see an instant difference.
Dr Jart + offers four masks, each of which target a specific skin concern so you can tailor your treatment to your needs. It offers fantastic results and is more affordable than Charlotte Tilbury’s mask, but it’s single use only. It’s a good option for beginners.
I have to say it: I think that cryo face masks might be the future of skincare. I will definitely be incorporating them into my weekly skin routine from now on. If nothing else, they feel so nice and relaxing and I love the instant results.
