How Do Anti-Aging Creams And Anti-Aging Face Masks Compare?

While there’s no fountain of youth, there are a number of products to help you discover younger looking skin. The challenge is knowing which ones will give you the most bang for your buck. Perhaps you’ve seen the explosion of anti-aging face masks on the market lately and wondered how they compare to therapeutic creams. We asked beauty gurus to weigh in. Here’s what they had to say.

For relaxation and dry skin

Anti-aging creams are going to be your best defense for dry, aging skin. While masks are not left on long enough to get maximum penetration of effective ingredients, masks are usually a go-to for when you want to unwind and relax while nourishing your skin at the same time.

A sleep mask is different, however. This is a mask that is massaged into the skin at night and left on to get maximum penetration and effectiveness from the scientific ingredients that help reduce and reverse the signs of aging.

Alike in many ways

Anti-aging creams and anti-aging face masks are alike in many ways. Creams are incredibly nourishing and aim to combat aging issues like dehydration, wrinkles, and collagen reproduction.

Face masks are [much] the same; however, when most people think of anti-aging face masks, they forget about LED masks. LED face masks are also anti-aging, in that the lights give off colors that penetrate the skin to multiple layers. The results include cellular regeneration, a decrease of fine lines, and improved overall texture.

Anti-aging creams works like magic

I am a big advocate of anti-aging creams over anti-aging masks as creams sit on the skin for a significantly longer period of time, allowing the ingredients more time to penetrate the skin and work their magic.

Masks are also incredibly wasteful, and their popularity over the past few years has resulted in significant waste, from the packaging to the masks themselves. If you’re deciding between an anti-aging cream and an anti-aging mask, I recommend opting for the cream. Your wallet and the earth will thank you in the long run.

My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
