Why Laneige Cica Sleeping Mask?
The Laneige Cica Sleeping Mask combines patented Forest Yeast Ferment with three Centella Asiatica extracts for their repairing and regenerating benefits.
Laneige research uncovered that Forest Yeast Ferment boosted skin recovery by about 112%. Combined with Asiaticoside, Madecassic Acid and Asiatic, it works to calm the skin, strengthen the barrier and ease dryness.
What is a sleeping mask?
A sleep mask is lighter and has a higher water content than a night cream because it’s meant to be applied over your moisturiser.
A sleep mask puts a veil on the skin that traps the active ingredients and holds in moisture.
Use it to create a hydrated, fresh and plump-looking skin, and relieve the look of dullness.
The Laneige Cica Sleeping Mask contains Forest Yeast Ferment and three active components of the widely recognised and clinically proven Centella Asiatica.
Forest Yeast Ferment, or Aureobasidium Pullulans Ferment, is a patented ferment made from a species of split peas growing in the Gotjawal Forest on the famous Jeju Island in South Korea. According to Laneige, this ferment has skin cell restoring and regenerating powers.
Centella Asiatica, also known as Gotu Kola, has become widely recognised around the world for its beneficial properties. Centella Asiatica soothes, hydrates promotes healing and provides antioxidant protection. It can restore the barrier and revitalise the skin, and may even help offset the visible effects of sun damage.
To increase the beneficial effects, Laneige has gone for the active components in Centella Asiatica: Asiaticoside, Madecassic Acid and Asiatic Acid.
Glycerin is included for its humectant properties. It draws water into the outer layers of the skin and holds it there. This gentle ingredient makes the skin feel soft and supple.
Panthenol, or Vitamin B5, is a hydrating ingredient that promotes healing and speeds up the skin’s natural restorative processes. It reduces redness and irritation, increases hydration and reduces water loss from the skin.
Shea Butter is a nourishing ingredient that’s rich in fatty acids and vitamins. It moisturises and softens the skin, but also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties.
Combination, dry, normal and sensitive skin types, including rosacea.
It has no discernible scent.
This mask is intended to be used as the last step in your skin care routine.
And don’t forget to apply the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. You don’t want your lips looking shabby while the rest of you looks gorgeous, do you?
