Balancing the skin is a delicate dance between the right amount of exfoliation, treatment, hydration and nourishment. Dr. G created The Skin Balancing Mask  for this exact reason. Inspired by one of Dr. Goldfaden’s professional balancing treatments, which includes a combination of microdermabrasion, vitamin/enzyme infusion and oxygen. This multidimensional treatment works to reduce the appearance of facial lines and uneven skin tone, all while providing skin with a plumping effect that results in a firmer, smoother glowing complexion.

Formulated to utilize powerful anti-aging peptides and the efficient but gentle effects of malic acid, the Skin Balancing Mask provides anti-aging and nourishing benefits. This lightweight gel mask utilizes the next generation of hydrators, as it balances, soothes and calms skin while streamlining the process of intense exfoliation an in-office procedure would require. Other key ingredients include ginseng, honey, flower extracts, and vitamin E to improve skin elasticity and increase collagen production. Ginseng, Honey, Jojoba Oil, floral peptides and Vitamin E infuse moisture, vitality and nourishment back into the skin. 

Discover the benefits of Malic Acid

Derived from apples, this gentle alpha hydroxy helps to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, tighten pores, minimize the appearance of skin pigmentation, moisturizes and exfoliates skin ridding it of dead skin cells. 

The result: improved skin texture and appearance, leaving it softer and smoother.

Why you should be wearing a mask with Ginseng

Ginseng has been promoted as an anti-ageing treatment since probably forever. It contains a large amount of phytonutrients, which can stimulate and activate the skin’s metabolism. It rids skin of the free radicals, which get accumulated when your skin is regularly exposed to sunlight and environmental pollution. Ginseng also contains certain ingredients that can increase the production of collagen in the middle layer of the skin known as dermis, making the skin firmer. Collagen is responsible for making the skin more elastic and toned, thereby diminishing wrinkles or fine lines on the face and other body parts.

Ginseng roots and leaves are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, which are good for overall skin health. The roots and leaves metabolize skin cells and facilitate the elimination of dead skin cells to produce healthy new skin. Ginseng tea is particularly great for refining and rehydrating your skin, by regenerating skin cells by increasing oxygenation. It also improves blood circulation and is a great blood detoxifier. All these factors contribute to a healthier and brighter complexion. Topical use of ginseng leaves can keep your skin healthy and glowing.

Why you need the Flower Power

The flower extracts really set this mask apart. The beautiful and dainty elderflower promotes blood flow and is loaded with vitamins A, B, C and E. Bright orange Calendula (pot marigold) is responsible for moisturizing, soothing skin, pain relief and anti-inflammatory benefits. Beautiful red and fuchsia Geranium extract is calming, anti-bacterial and serves as an astringent.

Your skin is one of the major organs involved in eliminating wastes and impurities from your body (and the largest organ at that), mainly through perspiration. Sometimes, if your system is overwhelmed, your skin may develop issues to compensate (hello….congestion!), and try to get rid of these impurities.

A skin detox seeks to help the skin to get rid of the body’s waste products, which can, in turn, help your skin look and feel better. 

Some days our skin is extra dull or breaking out, especially after long flights, and we know it’s because we slept in our makeup, ate too much bad food, neglected our skin after beach days, or all of the above. If any other part of your body isn’t functioning properly, from your gut (too much junk food) to your brain (too much stress), it can show up on your skin because your pores get clogged up when trying to compensate for the other incorrectly functioning systems in your body.

Dr. G’s tips for giving your skin and body the detox that it needs: 

*Drink more water

*Sleep

*DE-Stress

*Cut out the junk

*Exfoliate

*Sweat 

*Exercise

*Dry Brush

In addition to practicing healthy lifestyle choices, it’s important to use products that have essential detox properties for mitigating congestion in the skin.

Dr. G has created a signature Detox ComplexTM, a proprietary blend containing White Horehound, Acai Palm Extract, Date Palm, and Gotu Kola; this specialty complex boosts the skin’s self-defense system and works to protect skin from environmental stress, pollution and free radical damage, which can result in premature aging.
