Tell us about the new Super Hydrating Overnight Mask – what is it about this product that makes it unique?

Our skin undergoes stress throughout our normal daily lives from environmental aggressions, resulting in a weak skin barrier, which in turn can lead to premature ageing, fine lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity, dryness, redness, and irritation.

Wildsmith Skin’s Super Hydrating Overnight Mask is a moisture boosting face mask to strengthen and restore the skin for plumper, soothed and hydrated results, visibly improving the appearance of redness and soothing irritation. Containing an anti-redness complex of ginger, turmeric and probiotics to soothe any irritation, improving moisturisation and protect against oxidative stress. Instantly improving the overall texture and appearance of skin. Grape extract works in tune with the skins rhythm to control the skins action to moisturise during the daytime and recover skins barrier at night.

What can cause our skin barrier to weaken and how might this have an effect on our skin?

Daily exposure to environmental aggressors, such as pollution, UV rays or blue light, is known to weaken the skin barrier. Other factors that can cause stress to the skin barrier are over cleansing and exfoliating or using too many actives and high percentages of actives.

These factors can cause redness, irritation, elasticity and dryness which can potentially accelerate the early signs of ageing.

Any advice on transitioning from summer to autumn or colder weather routines?

As we change seasons the skin can become drier and more dehydrated due to the drop in temperature outdoors and the increase in temperature indoors. The skin can feel tight, rough in texture, fine lines and wrinkles may appear and skin may appear red, in particular, across the cheeks. It is important to notice these changes in your skin and adapt your skincare routine. It maybe using a richer moisturiser in the evening, adding a facial oil or facial serum to your routine in the evening.

Do you have any tips or key ingredients for those tackling redness?

To help keep redness at bay, use tepid water when cleansing the skin in the morning and evening, avoid direct heat to the area from any portable heater and avoid over exfoliating.

Wildsmith Skin’s Super Hydrating Overnight Mask contains an anti-redness complex of, ginger, turmeric and probiotics has been clinically proven to instantly and continuously calm the skin and reduce irritation.

What are the main differences we need to consider between a morning and evening routine? How can I incorporate the mask into my routine?

Our morning routine should be about moisturisation to protect our skin from external factors that we are faced with on a daily basis from the environment around us. Using a nourishing cream to keep the skin moisturised will ensure the skin stays soft and supple throughout the day.

In the evening it is important that we thoroughly cleanse our skin, to remove daily dirt, grease and impurities from the skin. We recommend double cleansing in the evening to ensure everything has been removed so when we apply our beautiful serums, eye creams and moisturisers, our skin can really absorb these products while we are sleeping and to get the best results.

We recommend incorporating Super Hydrating Overnight Mask once or twice a week into your skincare routine. After double cleansing, smooth a thin, even layer to your face and neck, avoiding the eyes and lips and leave to absorb overnight. In the morning, cleanse the skin as normal to remove any traces of mask, the skin will appear softer, smoother and soothed.

What are the best benefits of using skincare with lab grown actives along with botanical ingredients?

At Wildsmith Skin, the performance of lab grown actives in our formulations are strengthened by combining them with botanical ingredients to rejuvenate and replenish, transforming skin health and wellbeing.

Lab grown actives have been created in the lab and engineered to mimic the skin’s natural systems, often starting with naturally derived ingredients and using science to enhance their effectiveness – this process has led to many breakthroughs in skincare and is recognised as being gentler on the environment using less energy and waste in their production.

The performance of lab grown ingredients in our formulations are strengthened with botanicals, these are plant extracts, oils and butters derived from flowers, herbs, nuts, seeds, roots and bark. Providing a vast range of benefits to the skin, including anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidant protection, hydration, and enhanced cell renewal.
