Why we recommend

While a sheet mask isn’t going to stop the passage of time from causing wrinkles altogether, this clever solution is brilliant for smoothing away tell-tale lines in the short term. In particular, before a big event, when you’re feeling stressed, or between toxin appointments, including when you are pregnant as it’s baby-safe. The mask is quick and simple to use too, which is a win-win.

    The Myo-Fix face mask is infused with not one, not two, but three types of ‘No-Tox’ peptides, which means they are designed to mimic the line-smoothing effect of toxin at least at a surface level. That includes Matrixyl – a popular collagen-boosting peptide – and Syn-Ake that is said to imitate snake venom. It also contains nourishing algae extracts to refresh your face, helping calm and plump your skin in just 20 minutes.For a more long-lasting effect on wrinkles, the brand recommends using the mask in conjunction with its best-selling Myo-Fix Concentrate (add link). 

     

    HOW TO USE IT

    Wash your face and use serum as normal. Open the sachet, take out the mask, unfold it and place it on your face. Hook the side slits to your ears, pull the lower part of the mask down to cover your chin and hook the second pair of slits to your ears. Leave on for 20 minutes. After taking the mask off, rub in the remaining gel until fully absorbed. You can use it once a week.

    How can face masks benefit your skin?

    Depending on the ingredients infused within the specific product, face masks can help improve your skin in a wide range of ways. Often they contain hydrating and calming ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and aloe vera to perk up dry, irritated skin. They can also be brightening if they contain vitamin C or other fruit extracts, or detoxifying if they are clay-based or use charcoal. Some face masks can also have a, normally temporary, tightening and firming effect on the skin, using ingredients such as peptides, making them great for before events.

     

    Does No-Tox skincare actually work?

    The question of whether ‘No-Tox’ skincare – aka products that aim to mimic the line smoothing effects of toxin injections – can ever measure up is a popular one, and we discuss it in detail here. In summary, yes no-tox skincare, such as those containing particular peptides, can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and crepiness so they can be a great addition to your skincare routine. However, topical products will always take longer to have that effect than injections and will not necessarily be able to treat deeper expression lines.

     

    What are peptides and why do we want them in our skincare?

    Peptides are short chains of amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins. They are used in skincare due to their range of benefits (depending on the ones that are used). This includes their promotion of collagen and elastin production because they are ‘skin cell signallers’, which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and promote skin repair overtime. They are also hydrating, can protect against environmental damage and have anti-inflammatory properties.
