Customise Your Facial Mask With This Innovative New Skincare

I’m a big fan of sheet masks. They are not only fuss-free and fast, but also tend to be quite gentle on skin (which is a must-have for more sensitive complexions like my own). The only problem is, it’s harder to tailor your at-home treatment with them. With creams, I can apply hydrating, calming or anti-ageing masks on my cheek areas, while using a detoxifying or clarifying on my T-zone, to get a more targeted treatment.

To combat this, local brand Skin Inc is introducing its latest innovation from Korea, the Facial In A Flash collection. Its hydrogel sheet masks are infused with Skin Inc’s fortifying serums, precious metals and plant extracts to nourish and treat skin. But what we love about it is that each mask comes in two portions, that are packed separately. One for the top half of the face (T-zone and eye areas), and the other for the bottom half (cheeks, mouth and chin areas).  This allows you to personalise your home “facial” according to the different needs in the different areas of your face.

There are three different variants in the series: Soothe-n-Purify Black Gold Mask, Lines Be-Gone Rose Gold Mask and Get Glowin Platinum Mask. With them, you can create up to nine different masking combinations to address a variety that can answer a multitude of skin concerns. Our favourite combination at the moment: the Soothe-n-Purify Black Gold Mask for the top half of our face to balance skin and treat pores, with the Get Glowin Platinum Mask to brighten our cheek area.

#1: Skin Inc Soothe-n-Purify Black Gold Mask, $17
Great for calming and detoxifying skin, this is infused with the brand’s Vitamin C Serum and natural skin-loving plant extracts, enhanced with purifying charcoal and pure gold, which is said to help slow down the depletion of skin’s collagen levels, prevent premature skin ageing and improves blood circulation. All these ingredients work together to provide intense hydration for skin, repair and strengthen skin’s natural barrier, while purifying skin of irritants and regulating sebum production to minimise pores. #2: Skin Inc Get Glowin Platinum Mask, $17
This has the Skin Inc Vitamin B3+ Serum, together with a potent blend of brightening natural floral extracts and Pure Platinum, a strong antioxidant said to be able to boost tissue regeneration and skin renewal. Developed to refresh the complexion by improving overall skin tone, reduce redness and sallowness while reducing the appearance of pigment spots, this leaves you with radiant, luminous skin. #3: Skin Inc Lines Be-Gone Rose Gold Mask, $17
If you want to treat premature ageing, fine lines or sagging skin, then try this. Infused with Skin Inc’s Vitamin A Serum and an innovative blend of anti-aging natural rose and floral extracts, enhanced with precious pure gold, this is designed to help reverse the signs of ageing by plumping and invigorating the skin. Nourishing ingredients help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, while gold boosts the effects of potent antioxidants to protect your skin’s support structure. Like this?
