In the ever-evolving world of beauty, the face mask category has quickly become the most innovative! But the latest craze, the magnet mask, isn’t exactly a novelty. They really work. In fact, they’re formulated with the very same magnet therapy practiced by Cleopatra, who slept with a magnetic amulet on her head to maintain her youthful appearance. And if I correctly recall history class, the Egyptian queen was all innovation in the vanity and beauty department!
New releases in the world of beauty masks, like Dr. Brandt’s Magnetight Age Defier Skin Recharging Magnet Mask, consist of a thick, creamy, iron-based powder that you smooth onto your skin, leave on for five to ten minutes, then suck up off the skin with a magnet. That’s right—no water necessary! And bonus: Watching the negatively-charged particles jump off the skin is truly mesmerising.
But beyond being absolutely fascinating to watch in action, the small, safe electromagnetic interaction zaps up pollutants on the skin, attracting and entrapping these impurities minus the abrasion to the skin. Clogged pores don’t stand a chance. And as we know, free radicals contain toxins that accelerate the process of aging, as well as damage the skin’s barrier and elasticity, which causes inflammation. This effect, teamed with the antioxidants, like peptides, in the mask leave your skin brighter, bouncier, and smoother.
Basically, when you lift the mask off the skin using the magnet, it generates a very small, but revitalising, electromagnetic interaction, the magnetic particles bind to and draw out the pollutants on the skin while stimulating circulation.
My verdict: The magnet created a tingling sensation as it sucked the mask out of my pores, and once fully removed the product had an immediate brightening effect and left my skin feeling soft, smooth, and intensely hydrated.
So if you’re looking for a mask fit for an Egyptian queen, taking the magnet route is definitely worth its weight in luxe and fun!
