Bio-cellulose Cooling Masks: The Benefits of a Wondrous Combination

The regimen towards beautiful skin is a unique blend of science, traditional techniques and pure pampering. While centuries’ old wisdom is golden to glowing complexions, modern advancements in beauty products bring an extra magical touch of nourishment to stop time in its tracks. This is precisely the background story of cooling masks and bio-cellulose. Cooling masks deliver the soothing effect of ice. At the same time, bio-cellulose enhances nutrient absorption and amplifies the beneficial effects of procedures. 


Aspiring to gift all beauty lovers with professional tools in the comfort of their home, FRAÎCHEUR has launched a new product line of Hydrating Arctic Biocellulose Masks. Used with the Fraîcheur Ice Globes, these promise to moisturize and deeply nourish the skin, for a complexion as radiant as it can get. And the promise is supported by science and traditional beauty techniques, for which we’re about to give you the complete background story.



What’s bio-cellulose?


The beauty industry is always searching for novel ingredients that have the power to make ‘beauty-ever-after” a dream come true. And every now and then, scientists discover a technique with beauty-changing potential. In this case, bio-cellulose, which is kind to the skin, but also to the environment, as it is completely natural and 100% compostable.


In a nutshell, bio-cellulose is an ultra-thin natural fibre created by tiny, tiny bacteria. These small ‘beauticians’ convert glucose into cellulose and need around 10 days to produce enough for scientists to ‘harvest’. Initially used in medicine to treat burns and chronic wounds, bio-cellulose caught the eye of beauticians due to its extraordinary absorption properties. In fact, bio-cellulose can absorb more than 100 times its dry weight, making any mask a nutrient power-house. Plus, bio-cellulose masks are incredibly durable and easily cling to the skin, ready to provide the full goodness of the beneficial mask ingredients.




Why cooling masks?


While the beauty industry is surging with innovative ingredients, it also draws inspiration from some of the simplest, yet most effective natural components. And without a doubt, water (especially at its cooler temperatures) is the Holy Grail of simple, yet miraculous ingredients. Ice, ice, ladies and gentlemen! 


We’ve talked about the beneficial effects of ice in several other articles related to the Fraicheur ice globes. Fact is that we simply can’t get enough of the refreshing sensation ice globes bestow upon us. That’s why we’ve taken things one degree further by creating a cooling mask - to be the better half of our ice globes for beauty-ever-after. 


Cooling masks have similar benefits to those delivered by ice, with the added advantage of tightly covering every bit of your skin to nourishing it profoundly. Cooling masks can relieve dry, puffy eyes, reduce dark circles or swelling after chemical treatments, brighten your complexion, alleviate migraines, improve blood flow and overall refresh and rejuvenate. Not to mention that cooling masks have a relaxing effect that can make your stress flush away and the worries dissipate - even if for just a few moments.



By their powers combined


It’s not hard to imagine how wonderfully bio-cellulose and cooling masks are together - a tremendously exciting association for all skin-lovers. Augment this match-made-in-heaven by sneaking in the Fraicheur ice globes, and you’ve got yourself a beauty regimen that will rejuvenate your skin and your spirit. Tre bien! 


The hydrophilic properties of bio-cellulose enhance the soothing benefits of cooling masks and their nutrients, creating a natural beauty product that lives up to its reputation - sophisticatedly simple and simply sophisticated. The cold temperature will put your blow flow into motion and help your skin enjoy all the nutrient-rich ingredients kept in tight by the bio-cellulose. Once you also pamper yourself with an ice globes’ massage, you’ll never want to treat your face another way again. 


Your skin will tighten and feel plumper, healthier, almost radiant. Your pores will decrease in size and that obnoxious redness you dreaded will tone down and be gone. You’ll be left with a bright complexion and feel refreshed and cooled. Plus, the combination of bio-cellulose masks and ice can also be the perfect remedy for headaches and sore sinuses.

A little less conversation, a little more skin-love, please! Take out your Fraicheur ice globes and prepare the bio-cellulose cooling masks to indulge in an ultra-pampering skin treatment.

Before you begin, give your ice globes 20 minutes alone in the freezer. Ice-love will soon emerge, and all your skin is going to be the main character in this love story. While they’re slowly chilling, make sure to cleanse your face. Then, unfold the Hydrating Arctic Biocellulose Mask and gently apply it to your skin, gel side down.

Then, once again, sigh with satisfaction. You’ve treated yourself. You’ve treated yourself well.
