Everything You Need To Know About The Yeast Extract In Tightening Detox Mask

Forget everything you know about detox masks. Tightening Detox Mask is known as "a facial in a tube" and for good reason. This hydrating gel mask isn't the usual thick, drying mask you think of when you see "detox mask", instead, it features highly active ingredients to improve skin texture, elasticity and more.

Whether you use this mask as a 20-minute skin refresh or overnight tightening booster, that revitalized glow you'll see after using is thanks to this key ingredient: yeast extract.  

What is yeast extract? 

Yeast extract is an antioxidant derived from yeast that detoxifies and energizes skin for a healthy glow. It aims to revitalize cells by increasing ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which translates to healthier-looking and functioning skin.

What are the benefits of yeast extract?

As we age, our skin cells aren't generating as much ATP as they did when we were younger. An increase in ATP means your skin cells have more energy to repair themselves leading to healthier, younger-looking skin.

The yeast extract in Tightening Detox Mask increases your skin's oxygen consumption to slow down premature skin aging while simultaneously providing skin-repairing benefits. Think of it like this: oxygenated skin is firmer skin.

If you struggle with tired, dull skin and are looking for anti-aging benefits, yeast extract is the perfect match. 

What if I have a yeast allergy? 

While allergic reactions are more commonly associated with ingestion of allergens, topical application can also cause symptoms in sensitive individuals.

If you have a yeast allergy, you can potentially react to the yeast extract in this product. We recommend consulting your doctor before using.

How can I incorporate Tightening Detox Mask into my routine? 

Tightening Detox Mask works hard while you relax and provides that moisture surge your skin craves. Here are a few ways we love to use this mask:

  • Apply a generous amount to your face, neck and chest and leave on your 20-minutes for an instant skin refresh. 
  • Frequent traveler? Use this as an in-flight mask and get off the plane looking like you just came from a facial.
  • For enhanced results, apply as the last step in your nighttime routine, after your serums and moisturizers, and leave on overnight.
  • Our founder, Dr. Loretta, loves to apply this mask to her neck every morning and leave on throughout the day to tighten and uplift.
