STEM CELL FACIALS
Now, have you heard of stem cell facials? It sounds intriguing and so enticing and unfortunately oh-so-expensive as well. When I heard about Beautigenix sheetmasks and their main ingredient is stem cells, I have to give it a try and create my own experience with a stem cell facial at home. What is the hype about stem cells and skin care?
Stem cells are incredibly unique as they have the potential to transform into any cell types by stimulating growth of new cells and encourage production of fundamental building blocks of skin such as collagen and elastin, as well as repair of damaged cell. Stem cells have been the heat of research for scientists and in medicine for these regenerative and reparative properties. The philosophy behind stem cell facial is regeneration of skin cells. Aging causes loss of collagen and elastin; sun and environment causes damages to cells result in laxity in skin, wrinkles, loss of radiance and formation of pigments, spots, scars and uneven skin tone. It is hoped that with properly formulated stem cells, they can get incorporated into your skin, revitalize the skin’s building blocks, and help to stimulate epidermal stem cells to thicken the skin, which leads to tightening, firming and prevent wrinkle formation.

WHY I LIKE IT
Beautigenix recommend that these sheet masks be used regularly two to three times weekly to get the most benefits. I have been using these mask right after I do an at-home chemical peel, and these are the perfect skin soother to help heal and repair after the treatment. These masks feel heavy because the material is simply supercharged with the serum, slowly delivered into the skin over the course of 20-30 minutes. I feel that masks that are highly absorptive often contours to the face better, and really enhances moisture retention.
My favourite part of this sheet mask is massaging the serum onto my face after the mask is removed. The serum is like a lightweight oil blending serum (perhaps due to castor oil) that really contribute to a luxury experience. I can just see and feel that the serum has penetrated the skin, and provides instant replenishing the skin with essential moisture and create a moisture barrier for skin brightening. It feels so light on the skin, and absorbs quickly without leaving sticky or greasy feel, which makes it a perfect mask treatment for daytime look – even under makeup or sunscreen.
I do feel that this mask produces results above and beyond what I usually expect of a facial mask. It is of professional quality, after all! It is unbelievably good at boosting the moisture levels in my skin, and the result is the longest lasting effect of all the masks I’ve used, while maintaining a stable skincare routine. I feel like I just had a proper facial, with skin feeling consistently soft, plump, and looking more radiant for days. The mask packs hydrating, plumping, and brightening punch that I feel is above its price tag with its hero ingredient: stem cell. I can definitely see myself using this mask on a regular basis.
