13 Sep What are Hydrojelly Facial Masks?
We know that the facials at Fabriq Spa are already a glorious experience – who doesn’t love to have their skin gently exfoliated by all-natural products, feel the warmth of hot towel compresses on their skin, and breathe in the delicious spa scents? Well, we actually found a way to amplify your experience at the spa while delivering powerful skincare nutrients to your skin: our new electrolyte-infused Hydrojelly Masks!
These masks start off in powdered form and are activated with purified water for each application. As the water mixes with the powder, it forms a liquid “jelly” that is applied to the area. After about 15-20 minutes, the hydrojelly solidifies, creating a vacuum seal that pushes all the beneficial, yummy ingredients into your skin’s pores. After that it can then be peeled off with little to no residue.
Each mask is infused with electrolytes derived from algae that benefit your skin by helping achieve a natural moisture balance, resulting in healthy, hydrated, and supple looking skin. These hydrojelly masks have incredible soothing and calming effects – the perfect way to put the finishing touch on a facial, microdermabrasion session, or even a waxing treatment.
While drinking your daily intake of recommended water will make you feel better from the inside out, your skin cannot retain moisture without the proper balance of electrolytes. Did you know that one of the most common causes of dehydrated skin is an electrolyte imbalance? This can be caused by anything from improper diet, medications, or a hormonal imbalance. These masks will instantly infuse your skin with a blast of essential nutrient-rich electrolytes that your skin needs – including Potassium, Magnesium, Sodium Chloride, Phosphorus, Bicarbonate, & Sodium Pryophosphate.
Every Hydro-jelly mask shares the common ingredients of Algae, Organic White Grain Oat Flour, Organic White Rice Flour, & Organic White Willow Bark Powder.
- Algae enhances your skins barrier function, replenishes its natural moisture reserves, and increases its moisture-retention capabilities. A powerful antioxidant, it detoxifies and boosts your skin’s defenses against a variety of environmental stressors.
- Organic White Grain Oat Flour has skin-soothing properties and is hypoallergenic, alleviating rashes, allergic reactions, sunburn, and other irritations.
- Organic White Rice Flour has excellent cleansing, exfoliating, and conditioning properties for your skin.
- White Willow Bark is astringent due to its natural tannins and is rich in antioxidants, helping to tone and reduce inflammation as well as provide relief from conditions such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis.
We currently offer two masks: Egyptian Rose for dry and/or sensitive skin, and Intensive Aftercare with Lavender for oily or acneic skin.
Our Egyptian Rose mask leaves your skin hydrated and luminous. It contains actual bits of antioxidant-rich rose petals, and their natural oils trap moisture in your skin, resulting in more firmness and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Rose is also naturally high in Vitamin C, which nourishes and keeps your skin strong, reduces hyperpigmentation, and diminishes the appearance of age spots, blemishes, and discolorations.
Our soothing Intensive Aftercare mask contains Grape Seed extract, Bromelain, and Lavender. Its cooling properties are perfect after a facial with extractions, for post-wax care, or as relief from sun damage. Grape Seed is known to reduce the harmful effects of UV light, speeds up your skins healing response, reduces swelling and redness, and helps prevent cell damage. Bromelain, an enzyme derived from pineapple, has similar properties and is packed with anti-inflammatory and anti-swelling agents. In addition to providing a boost for your skins healing process, bromelain will also reduce redness and swelling. Lavender helps eliminate tension, relieve pain, disinfect the skin, and prevent harmful bacteria from forming. Lavender also assists in regulating your skins production of sebum and can reduce signs of scarring.
The masks themselves are a delight to experience. Most facial masks neglect the eye and lip areas, but our Hydrojelly masks can go over the eyes and lips, amplifying the benefits for your entire face. The mask causes no damage to your brows or lashes, and can be used immediately after a lash or brow tinting without affecting the color. As soon as the mask is applied by your esthetician, you immediately feel its cooling properties and smell its floral aroma. After the mask is removed, a warm towel compress completes the experience and removes any excess material from your face, leaving your skin hydrated, plump, and nourished.
These masks can be added to any Signature Facial and are also perfect as a waxing after-care treatment. Any redness after brows, legs, underarms, etc can all be reduced by adding the Intensive Aftercare mask to your treatment. Try these masks in conjunction with LED light therapy to provide a powerhouse of healthy aging or anti-bacterial properties, depending on your skins needs.
