With countless options of wash-off masks out there, it can be a challenge to find one that does it all for senstive and acne-prone skin types. One point in particular that most of us may agree on, is that clay masks aren't always the one to rely on for adding a helping hand in fighting skin irritation and healing breakouts.
First of all, clay masks should only be used once weekly to control or reduce oil production; more frequent use can subsequently dehydrate skin even if your sensitive and acne-prone skin is oily. And let's face it, not all acne-prone skin types are oily. This often results in having to look for soothing skin care ingredients in other types of skincare products, and you may find your breakouts take longer to heal due to absense of a wash-off mask in your skincare routine that you can reach for daily.
What if we told you, you can reap in the benefits of a pore care clay mask without the clay? You're intrigued, right? That's where the Axis-y New Skin Resolution Gel Mask comes in to save your skin from inflammation and other common signs of irritation closely associated with sensitve and acne-prone skin types. As the name suggests, this is a gel type wash-off mask with a hydrating and soothing texture that balances skin as opposed to depriving skin of essential moisture.
THE BENEFITS OF THE AXIS-Y NEW SKIN RESOLUTION GEL MASK

WHY HEARTLEAF EXTRACT?
Aside for Niacinamide for brightening and pore care, Heartleaf greatly contributes to this formula in order to care for the skin types described earlier. Heartleaf excels at providing rapid soothing relief for common skin sensitivities. The mask contains intact Heartleaf leaves to reduce redness and inflammation without a coarse texture, so you don't need to worry about abrasiveness or causing futher irritation by friction.
Heartleaf has been compared to Centella Asiatica and Green Tea for it's skin-calming benefits, potent antioxidant content, and skin-balancing and hydrating qualities. Heartleaf has become a trending skincare ingredient among Korean skincare brands as it grows naturally in Korea and neighbouring countires with a similar climate. The use of this ingredient also dates back to centrury old medical practices, and was used in a similar way as a topical treatment for inflammation of the skin and the healing of minor wounds.
