Nothing is more annoying than having clogged pores and dead skin cells. Spare yourself a visit to the spa and use this facemask to clear out clogged pores and instantly refresh the skin. It even helps to get rid of the appearance of discoloration. To make full use of this mask, use it in combination with the “Gentle deep Pore Cleanser” by Institut Esthederm as well. The mask is a formula that combines an exfoliant and a treatment to eliminate dead cells and even out the skin tone.
Apply a thick, even layer on cleansed, dry skin then leave the mask on until it starts drying. Finally rub the residue off your face using your bare hands, this removes all the dead skin and clears out the pores. The mask has a high tolerance-cleansing base which thoroughly cleanses while protecting the hydro lipid surface film, leaving the skin pure and clean. The exfoliating texture eliminates dead cells and refines the skin’s texture to reveal softer, brighter skin and tighten pores. It also works great on sensitive skin, it’s fragrance free, and it’s gentle on the skin, yet very effective.
