These Are The Best Face Masks For Redness

These Are The Best Face Masks For Redness

If you have hypersensitive skin, then you know how hard it can be to find a face mask that won’t irritate it. You may have even turned to a dermatologist for help, only for their prescribed products to be both a waste of time and money. Your sensitive, redness-prone skin shouldn’t feel like a curse or something you have to be ashamed of. There are products that work. You just need to know what to look for.

There are a number of reasons why your skin may be so hypersensitive and prone to redness. Erythema, or skin redness, can be caused by sunburns, allergens, temperature changes, hormone imbalances, or chemicals.

If your skin is hypersensitive to its environment and prone to redness, it is usually because your epidermal fibers have been comprised in some way. The most common cause for this damage to your skin barrier is sunburn. Even if the sunburn occurred when you were a child, and you’ve lived a sunburn-free life since then, that one sunburn could be the cause for your blemished skin.

Here is a list of some of the best face masks for skin inflammation and hypersensitivity. Review each product carefully and see which one may solve your particular cause for redness. 

The TreeActiv Treatment Exfoliating Cleanser

This face mask is advertised as an acne treatment, but it’s made with bentonite clay that has an electrical charge that draws out toxins, chemicals, and contaminants that irritate your skin. It is also made up of honey powder that has natural anti-inflammatory properties and essential oils that provide beneficial antioxidants that help protect skin from damage. This product can be used four ways: as a cleanser, a scrub, a face mask, or a spot remedy. The TreeActiv Exfoliating Cleanser is ideal for you if you have sensitive or redness-prone skin caused by allergens or chemicals.

$18.95

The Green Tea Matcha Facial Mud Mask

This mud mask reduces pores and inflammation. It also lightens dark circles around the eyes thanks to the vitamin K present in the green tea used in this mud mask. If you have acne or erythema caused by hormonal imbalances, then this green tea mud mask may be your next best friend. This face mask is vegan and cruelty-free. It also has antibacterial agents that will help block acne-causing bacteria from destroying your skin.

$16.71

The Rise ‘N Shine Dead Sea Mud Mask

This facial mask is affordable and 100% natural. It contains organic ingredients like almond oil, coconut oil, and jojoba oil. The dead sea mud present in it helps to even your skin tone by stimulating blood circulation. This mask travels deep into your pores and unclogs them for a near blemish-free appearance. This facial mask also improves your skin’s health and hydration by increasing its ability to absorb essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. If you need a natural face mask that can restore your skin’s pH balance while also leaving it vibrant and hydrated, then this face mask may be what you need.

Is This The End Of The Deciem Drama?

Is This The End Of The Deciem Drama?

In the beauty industry, the corporation Deciem has long been known for its affordable high quality products and unique and innovated marketing strategy.  But, they’re also known for their drama thanks to CEO and founder Brandon Truaxe. 

Now, I personally have yet to try one of the Deciem brands, such as The Ordinary, or Niod. But since their inception, they’ve been cult-favorites and the older I get the more tempted I’ve been to try them.  Every time I’m about to place an order however, drama erupts. And if you’ve been paying attention you’ll know that last week Truaze announced the closing of Deciem and all of its brands.

(don’t worry they’re back open now)

But how on earth did a cult-favorite beauty company get to this point of insanity?

Here’s how…

In 2013, Deciem was launched (later becoming the corporation behind 10 cult-favorite beauty brands).

In August 2016, Deciem released The Ordinary which was a line of minimalistic, simplistic, yet high quality skin care products. This was the microbrand that blew up in the beauty world. And for good reason. Just to give you an idea of their pricing, you could get a bottle of retinoid serum for less than $10.  That kind of pricing was unheard of in the beauty industry.

In June 2017 Estee Lauder began investing in Deciem and became a shareholder with a 28 percent stake.

In January 2018, drama began to unfold when people noticed that The Ordinary was running ads making fun of their competitor Drunk Elephant.  Right after that controversy settled down Truaxe, began his crazy Instagram habit that arguably almost killed his brand. On the 24th of January he made the announcements that he would be canceling the marketing plans of Deciem for the future and will be talking to customers directly.

In February 2018, Truaxe announced on Instagram that he would no longer go by CEO and would instead go by “worker”.  His reasoning for this change of title was that “responsible people don’t need a CEO”.  Right after this, news of difficult working conditions including yelling emerged and more controversy and drama erupted online.  Then on the 4th of February, Truaxe posted a series of videos showing litter and publically announced the end of the Decium’s partnership with “Peter of Mong Packaging”.  He also offered a job at Decium to Peter of Mong Packaging on Instagram.  A couple of days later Truaxe used Instagram to talk about ending Deciem’s partnership with Dr. Tijion Esho-cosmetic surgeon.  When Elle interviewed Dr Esho later, he said that he never received payment or an official documented end of partnership while working with Decium.    In addition to all of the public Instagram drama, Truaxe also let go his co-CEO of 5 years because she did not “subscribe to peaceful values”.

Obviously February was a rough month for Deciem, but the drama didn’t end there.  In March 2018, Truaxe goes on Instagram to report a “racist” incident at the Ham Yard Hotel and threatens legal action.  He also states that he has “allocated $100,000 to promote this post on Facebook and Instagram”.  Two days later a piece is penned by David Yi asking if the Ordinary is “the Donald Trump of beauty”. 

In April, a photo of a man who appeared homeless outside of a Deciem location was posted on Instagram, causing internet drama.  Following the drama of the day, Truaxe let go of the ENTIRE U.S-based corporate staff. Was the photo a inkling of the firing to come?  Who knows.

 At the end of April, Truaxe posted two Instagram videos saying he was concerned about his safety and asking his followers to contact the police for him. A day after this incidence he posts another video in response to those concerned about his mental health saying those who believe he had metal health issues were “idiots”.

From April until October nothing major really happened, other than the ex-CEO being returned to her position.

Then on October 8th, Truaxe posted a video on Instagram geotagged with “The White House” announcing the shutdown of Decium due to “Major criminal activity” of “almost everyone” “which includes financial crimes and much others.”

 He then continued by saying “You have no idea what a solider I’ve been… for more than 13 years, I’ve been made fun of as a porn actor, as a fucking drug dealer… it’s all ending now.”   The Instagram video tagged a large group of people from George Clooney to Too Face, To British Beauty Blogger Caroline Hirons.

The Deciem’s website was then replaced with an entirely red screen.

Obviously with these announcements the beauty world went crazy.  But on October 11th, Truaxe posted screenshots from Mark Gelowitz and Estee Lauder showing terms that had been violated and the shareholder agreements.

On October 12th, an injunction was officially granted and Truaxe was removed as the company’s CEO.

As of today, websites have been reinstated and most of the closed stores have been reopened.

So, the only question that remains: Is the drama with the Deciem finally over?

The Truth about Adding Collagen Supplements To Your Beauty Routine

The Truth about Adding Collagen Supplements To Your Beauty Routine

Over the last few years there has been a craze for increasing our collagen intake. Whether it is from the influencers on your Instagram feed, your aesthetician, or your girlfriends. Collagen is the new trend that all of the makeup bloggers have been promoting and adding to their shakes or coffees.

So, what exactly is collagen, and why is it the new beauty and wellness trend? Should I eat it?

Should I drink it? These are a few questions that came to my mind when I first learned about it. So here I am to tell you the truth about collagen supplements!

What is Collagen?

Collagen is the most important protein found in our bodies that helps give structure to our nails, hair, skin, and bones. Think of collagen as a jelly that is keeping our bones together, or glue that is keeping our skin properties together without drying out.

Collagen also helps give our hair that luxurious shine, our skin that natural glow, and our nails that healthy appearance. As we get older, we begin to lose collagen in our bodies and begin to start looking up our nearest botox clinic!

However, there are a few types of collagen that we have in our bodies. Each type of collagen helps make up various properties throughout out hair, skin, nails, and bones. 

The types of collagen generally found in skin include I, II, IV, and VII. These types of collagen help keep our skin smooth and youthful. Type I is the most important because it connects the tissues of the skin, type II is found around the eyes and nose….you get the picture. 

We need collagen to help our bodies function regularly, but I still was wondering if collagen supplements really could make our hair, skin, and nails better. Here’s what I found.

Does Collagen Work?

Lately there have been many Instagram posts about adding collagen powder to your protein shake, coffee, or even eating it in a gummy bear form. Do these supplements really work?

Although these influencers might be giving us their real opinion, you should still be a little skeptical.  After all-money talks.  I can testify for this myself.  I’ve been sponsored on Instagram and this website and while I only agree to take on products I use and believe in from the start, being sponsored by a company creates a greater appreciation for the company from my perspective.  So, when it comes to edible health and beauty products, it’s possible an influencer could have some placebo effects and think the product is better than it is because they’re sponsoring them.  

The truth of the matter is that there isn’t any evidence to support the idea that collagen supplements are beneficial for skincare purposes. The studies just don’t exist to back that up. However, other studies that have focused around joint health and shown that there is pain reduction when users took collagen supplements. Showing that the collagen probably is doing SOMETHING upon consumption.  What is it really doing and is it beneficial to your skin?  We don’t really know.

The Bottom Line:

So, is it possible collagen is beneficial for your skincare routine?  Absolutely? 

Is collagen a skincare miracle you should splurge for if you’re on a tight budget?  Maybe not.

Would I splurge on collagen?  I’m seriously considering it. Skincare is something I’ve only just started exploring and collagen supplements are definitely on my list of things to try, but as someone who only has face wash currently, they don’t take first priority. Instead I’m going to be adding in moisturizers, skin peels, and things of that nature first.  However, over the next few months, I will probably give them a try.

The Best Collagen Supplements?

From the research I’ve been doing, here are some of the collagen supplements I would consider buying.
