Posted by RainShadow Labs' Resident Esthetician on 12/14/2020 to Lifestyle
Peptides are one of those ingredients that are getting a lot of buzz in the industry lately.

Using eye cream, moisturizer, and serums that contain peptides can lead to firmer, more supple, and younger-looking skin. 

Why You Need To Be Masking Your Skin Weekly

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 11/23/2020 to Lifestyle
There is nothing quite like relaxing with a face mask on to level up your skincare regimen. Using a face mask in between facials can help you reach your skincare goals no matter your skin type. Like serums and moisturizers, a face mask is a skincare vehicle. It delivers highly concentrated actives and vitamins to the skin to improve the overall quality of the skin's appearance. Face masks are occlusive - they create a physical barrier that locks in beneficial ingredients, allowing them to work more efficiently. Using a face mask two times a week that’s suitable for your skin type can assist with better looking tone and smoother texture. Masking should follow cleansing, toning, and applying a facial toner. These steps clear away impurities and excess oil, provide a base layer of hydration, and prep your skin to better absorb the benefits of your face mask.
