If you read our previous post about us trialling numerous sheet masks, you would know that we have found one that we absolutely love. We hope you all love it as much as we do! What makes the Salmon Mask from Dr Su Cosmetics and FOREVERSKiN so special is the 1% HPDR (Highly Polymerized Deoxy-Ribonucleic Acid) Solution Salmon DNA Extract ingredient. This particular ingredient has been researched for the last TEN years developed by a dermatologist Dr Su Min Han and thanks Dr Han for an amazing creation that is readily available to us consumers.
HPDR is a substance derived from the wonderful fish - salmon. It is said that salmon DNA base structure is very similar to us humans and have been used in aiding regeneration of joints and diabetic foot ulcers. Salmon DNA has been proven in clinical studies to create a protective barrier on the skin like a film to prevent skin damage especially from sun exposure and other environmental factors - you know, all the bad stuff that makes us age quicker!
Have we lost you yet? Not to worry, we promise to keep it simple.
The salmon extract has the ability to block certain parts of UV rays (ones that can destroy our skin DNA cells in particular). It has properties that can inhibit early breakdown of collagen and elastin in our skin which are the two important components of the ageing process. What's even more amazing is that not only does it promote hyaluronic acid production in our fibroblast department but it can prevent moisture loss from the skin layers known as TEWL (trans-epidermal water loss).
So the next thing you'll notice from using these Salmon Mask on a regular basis is significant improvements in overall skin health, anti-ageing, brightening complexion, improving hydration and skin texture.
You may notice instant effects but to maintain long term results, sheet masks should be used regularly and can complement with your current skincare regime.
