What is it?
A super hydrating mask from one of Korea’s leading sheet mask brands, the Leaders Amino Double Moisture Mask features a super concentrated Amino Acid Ampoule ready to be freshly mixed in with the original Leader Amino Moisture Mask.
Amino acids are the building blocks of both peptides and proteins, and each has a specific role in skincare. Amino acids maintain skin’s hydration, texture, resilience, and an overall supple, healthy appearance.
Amino acids are naturally present in skin, as part of what’s called our natural moisturising factors (NMFs).
They work in harmony with Aquaporins (the body’s water transport system) to move moisture throughout skin. Because of this, the primary benefit is that the amino acids help maintain skin’s smoothness and hydration, something they also do when applied via skincare products. Topically applied amino acids help strengthen skin’s natural defense system, making it less likely to show signs of ageing from environmental damage. A few different Amino Acids contained in the Ampoule are Arginine which plays a role in repairing visible skin damage, Histidine which has antioxidant ability and can soothe skin, Methionine neutralises damaging substances before they can harm skin, Lysine helps visibly firm skin’s surface by reinforcing its supportive elements, Proline, Leucine, and Glycine diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
The serum contains Ceramide ingredients combined with a complex of 17 amino acids that help strengthen the moisture barrier of the skin to keep moisture locked in.
This product works well to address wrinkles, dead skin, dryness and dullness. Amino acids are super gentle on the skin as they help to repair the skin surface.
