The Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask is a low-irritation sugar mask, with extremely fine granules. It serves as a physical exfoliator to brighten and clear the skin, or as a wash-off mask that deeply moisturises the skin. It helps exfoliate dead skin cells and dry patches, to reveal clearer skin. Formulated with a low pH, the mask also serves as a cleansing paste, that removes makeup and impurities without making the skin dry or tight. The sugar mask also nourishes and moisturises the skin for a healthy glow.
The mask is enriched with antioxidants from grapefruit and raspberry, and other key ingredients that keep the skin nourished. Grapefruit extract and kaolin soften skin and improve skin texture without irritation. Shea butter, raspberry oil, and jojoba oil add rich nutrition and leave the skin feeling moisturised after washing off. The mask also contains anti-inflammatory calamine to soothe your skin. Together they help reduce dullness and dryness.
Sucrose: A natural sugar found in many exfoliating products. It is popular for its hygroscopic (moisture-retaining) abilities. It helps with blemish control and balances the skin’s oil production. The Glycolic acid present in sugar also helps soften and condition the skin, as well as protect it from pollutants. Its ability to easily dissolve makes it an ideal exfoliator.
Raspberry Seed Oil: It is a great source of fatty acids, moisture and vitamins. The fatty acids are known to help soothe and reduce inflammation and fight acne. Raspberry Oil also contains great levels of Vitamin E that serves as a natural antioxidant – to fight oxidative stress and prevent premature skin ageing.
Grapefruit Extract: Rich in nutrients that protect, nourish and brighten the skin, Grapefruit extract is a rich source of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. A natural source of salicylic acid, it helps clear pores, and heal acne breakouts. It contains a component called lycopene (that gives its red colour) which helps reduce inflammation.
Kaolin: Kaolin clay is a popular, naturally occurring soft clay that is often found in cleansing or exfoliating products. It has high absorbing power and the ability to soothe skin making it ideal for use in an exfoliator. It helps control oil production and can help clear pores without causing flakiness or overly dry patches.
