FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is collagen?
Collagen is the most prevalent, naturally-occurring protein in the human body and one of the most critical ingredients to overall health and physical well-being. Derived from the Greek word for ‘glue,’ or kólla, collagen forms and holds together the skin, bones, muscles and tendons. It can also be found in the blood vessels, teeth, corneas and many other parts of the body.
Supplementing the body’s collagen levels through topical treatments has proven to improve the skin’s elasticity, firmness and overall appearance. Products like Pour Elle Anti-Aging Collagen Peel Off Mask infuse the skin with marine collagen and other natural ingredients to hydrate and reduce lines and wrinkles.
What are the benefits of collagen masks?
Collagen masks absorb through the skin to supplement its natural supply while stimulating the cell’s physiological collagen production. Collagen face masks reduce the signs of aging by adding firmness and hydration to your face while softening the skin’s texture. Collagen gel eye masks and lip masks are specifically designed to target typical trouble spots by moisturizing and plumping the skin, effectively minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.
What do collagen eye masks do?
Collagen eye masks are great alternatives to full face masks when you are short on time or don’t need a full face treatment. Used in either an at-home or spa setting, collagen gel eye masks like Eyes by ToGoSpa™ rejuvenate the delicate under-eye area by brightening, hydrating and moisturizing, boosting collagen production, reducing puffiness and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.
How often should you use a collagen face mask?
Collagen face masks, gel eye masks, lip masks and other collagen enhancing products can be used as often as everyday or a minimum of 2 to 3 times per week. Using collagen masks as a regular part of your skincare routine will maximize the anti-aging benefits of the treatments and leave your skin feeling supple, smooth and firm. That said, experts recommend using masks with different additives to address the current needs of your skin. Some collagen masks offer pore detoxification qualities while others calm your complexion. Having a variety of collagen mask types on hand will give you the flexibility to change-up your protocol as needed.
