Natural Born Cosmetics® Barrier Recovery Sleeping Masque is a uniquely designed triple task formula with targeted ingredients to support and maximize your night time anti-aging regimen; whether you use serums or prescription treatments. The creamy smooth lightweight texture delivers maximum hydration protection while fortifying skin’s natural protective lipid barrier. It helps increase the skin’s natural antioxidant production to fight and repair free radical damage, all while stimulating skin’s own ability to retain moisture. Come morning, visible signs of stress and fatigue have diminished to reveal a softer and more youthful-looking complexion.
Sleeping masks are the next generation night-time moisturizers, but are more powerfully formulated to go beyond what moisturizers alone can do. Clinical studies show that skin can lose a significant amount of water during sleep, which directly affects the skin’s ability to hold in moisture for repairing the lipid barrier. Natural Born Cosmetics® Barrier Recovery Sleeping Masque creates a lightweight, protective breathable layer on top of skin that boosts the performance of any treatment products applied underneath; this emulsion provides optimal skin penetration and product performance while you sleep!
Natural Born Cosmetics® Barrier Recovery Sleeping Masque contains a banquet of ingredients that work synergistically together to promote healthy moisture levels, smooth rough and flaky skin, and eliminate accumulated environmental toxins and pollutants – all which greatly contribute to dehydrated, dull and wrinkled complexion:
Liquid Crystals: these biomimetic “skin-like” molecules mimic the skin’s own tridimensional structure, and is vital to maintaining healthy moisture levels and barrier integrity. They reinforce barrier strength and resilience, and ensure better delivery of cell communicating ingredients into the skin. They also restructure skin surface layers that results in increased softness, cohesion and elasticity.
Detoxifying MicroGreens: Swiss Garden Sprouts supports the skin’s natural detoxifying enzymes while enhancing cellular resistance, and promoting the elimination of environmental toxins.
Sea Buckthorn Oil is rich in Omega 3, 6, 7, and 9, and replenishes lipids lost due to aging. Also helps to revive the skin’s barrier reducing dryness and delaying wrinkle and fine line formation.
Tocopherol Linoleate: A moisturizing Vitamin E, and forms a comforting “moisture pillow” to skin for up to 20 hours. Greatly aids in recovering a healthy, dewy and radiant complexion.
Olive, Safflower, Sunflower and Jojoba Oils: this fabulous quartet of antioxidant-rich, luxurious and emollient oils provides deep nourishment and protection for moisture-depleted skin. It guards the skin’s natural moisture reserves while it aids in recovering softness, elasticity and resilience.
Black Cumin & Black Raspberry: These ingredients are rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 which support skin’s suppleness while providing antioxidant protection.
Directions: Natural Born Cosmetics® Barrier Recovery Sleeping Masque is designed to be applied before bed, and over any treatment products if used, but it can be used effectively in 3 different ways:
As a Sleeping Masque: Use at the end of your basic skincare routine before bed. Apply an even layer on face and neck during your PM routine in lieu of a moisturizer. If you have extra dry skin, apply a thick layer of the masque over all other products. Let masque set for five minutes and massage gently into the skin before going to sleep. Leave on overnight and rinse off in the morning.
As a Wash-off Masque: 1-3 times a week, smooth a generous amount of masque over clean, dry skin. After 15 minutes, rinse well with warm water.
As a Night Time Creme Moisturizer: Use nightly as the last step of your basic skincare routine in place of your regular night time moisturizer to calm and instantly moisturize and hydrate skin. Especially important to use for mature skins, and those recovering from aggressive procedures, environmental exposure, and other extreme conditions.
