If you’re reading this, it means you have the internet, which means you’ve more than likely already seen Aceology’s face masks in action. That’s because when the brand launched last year, it quickly gained traction as an Instagram-savvy brand, as influencers everywhere seemed to be mixing their own masks at home with Aceology’s DIY ingredients and snapping selfies of themselves in a rosé face mask. But there’s a lot more than that to the brand, which was founded with science in mind. Here, we quiz the brand’s skin therapist, Diandra Politano, on what to know about the brand. The brand started with masks. Tell us about each of the masks in the range and what they’re intended to do?“At the moment, the Aceology range has three different types of modeling masks and two variations of Infusion Gel masks,” says Politano. The Infusion Gel masks, which are more commonly known as Hydrogel masks, come in Green T, which is for stressed and acne-prone skin and Frosé, which Politano describes as a “hydration soak” for the skin. Then there’s the masks you’ve likely seen everywhere on Instagram, which the brand calls Modeling Masks, a product which prompted the user to mix up the mask themselves. “The mask sets and very easily peels off leaving behind a hydrating glow. This mask also has a collagen powder activator which is mixed in fresh, and instantly plumps the skin.” Why is masking something we need to be doing in our beauty routine?“The right mask for your skin type can help with an array of skin concerns, ranging from acne to dryness and even dehydration,” shares Politano. “Masking helps brighten a dull/tired complexion by delivering powerful active ingredients deep into the skin and also rejuvenating the surface. It is an essential extra step for instant glowing, healthy skin.” instagram How often should we mask and why? Politano says we should all be masking at least one a week. “This is often enough to maintain your skin between facials,” she adds. “Another good way to incorporate masking is by using a mask every time you have an event. Anyone suffering from breakouts and excess oil can mask daily if they desire.” Can you tell us about the benefits of a peel-off mask versus sheet mask or cream?“Peel off masks, also commonly known as modeling masks, are very powerful and originate from spa treatments. They are formulated with potent active ingredients that get delivered straight to the skin’s surface and work instantly. Because of the mask’s ability to set firm, it aids in the instant lifting and tightening of the skin. Some peel-off masks even have active ingredients that draw out blemishes and remove the outer layer of dead skin and pollutants.” As for sheet or cream masks, they offer a “cocktail of ingredients” that delve deeper past the surface layer of skin. “They hydrate the skin instantly and are fantastic for very dry and irritated skin types, especially those affected by cool changes in the climate,” Politano says, adding that whichever way you go, “all masks are fantastic in their own way.” Aceology most recently launched a line of beauty tools. Where do they fit into our routine?“We launched a line of beauty tools because the complete spa experience should entail a focus on skin, and also muscular structure and benefits. The tools are not only a luxurious step in a masking sesh as a way of massaging the remaining serums deeper into the skin’s many beautiful layers, [they] are also beneficial for mindfulness, releasing tension and restoring bounce to your skin.” Among the brand’s range of tools is a rose quartz gua sha facial massager, a rose quartz roller and ice globe facial massagers, which are perfect for anyone who suffers from redness and puffiness. “Giving your facial muscles and tissue a little workout and leaving skin lifted and radiant.” instagram What’s next for the brand?“The Aceology team is constantly working on new developments in applications, discovering new efficient ingredients to include and working to make the masking experience even more enjoyable,” says Politano. But don’t worry, they’re going to continue making masks that you’ll want to double tap on Instagram, too.
