One of the best things about owning a blog is being able to try new skincare and discover new ingredients, that’s why I’m so psyched about this new Active Renewal Masque from Lozano Skincare.
Now a bit of background, for the longest time Vitamin C has been known as the ingredient that helps brighten skin and bring out its radiance. Then a few months ago, I discovered Wild Rose which also brightens skin because it’s a natural source of vitamin C.
Now say hello to this Lozano Skincare SkinTea Active Renewal Masque which exfoliates, hydrates and also brightens skin thanks to its main ingredient White Tea.
This Masque also contains Hyaluronic Acid, Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid which all work together to remove dead skin and pollution from skin, unclog pores, reduce visible signs of wrinkles and make the whole face look brighter with continuous use.
Under the hood
Now let’s take a look at the ingredients individually and see how they benefit skin, starting with main ingredient White Tea. This Masque contains 5% White Tea (aka Camellia Sinensis) which research has shown to be 10% more potent in anti-oxidants than green tea and helps rejuvenate and maintain healthy skin by reversing DNA damage.
In skincare, White Tea :
- Reduces fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone
- Treats and prevents problematic skin conditions
- Reduces redness and calms irritated, sensitised skin
- Promotes skin hydration
- Promotes a glowing plump complexion
Next ingredient is Hyaluronic Acid, which at this point, I’ll be surprised if everybody didn’t know about. It’s one of the most famous skincare ingredients on the planet and is used in almost all skincare products, and for a good reason. It’s a powerful moisture-binding ingredient that holds a vast amount of water in the skin; effectively plumping out skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles as well as improving skin’s hydration and texture.
There’s also Glycolic Acid, which penetrates skin to exfoliate and help stimulate collagen and cell renewal through increased circulation. It also removes dead skin cells, dirt and debris to help the active ingredients in the masque penetrate. In effect, Glycolic Acid promotes a plump and supple appearance, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and prevents blackheads and breakouts.
The final ingredient Lactic Acid which also gently sloughs away dead skin cells and works on the surface of the skin to stimulate cell turnover, reduce pigmentation and brighten skin appearance.
So this Lozano Skincare SkinTea Active Renewal Masque is multi-functional and a great addition to any skincare routine. It treats dull, lack-lustre skin through mild exfoliation, evens skin tone and gives a soft, supple and glowing appearance. I believe using it at least 2-3 times a week will ensure skin stays hydrated and bright.
I’ve only just started incorporating it into my routine and I love how light and easily absorbed it is by my skin.
I apply it after cleansing. Leave it on for 10-15 mins and then rinse off with tepid water. I then follow up with a serum – either vitamin C or hyaluronic acid depending on what I got up to the day before, then I moisturise before applying makeup.
This Masque can be used either in a morning or evening skincare routine but I prefer morning routine so I have enough time for all the steps.
I’ve just started using this Lozano Skincare SkinTea Active Renewal Masque but I’m sold because of the active ingredients and I’m super excited to discover a new powerful ingredient – white Tea. I look forward to the glowing skin.
