The Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask has become a staple in my skincare routine ever since I tried it early last year. My skin has the tendency of looking extremely dehydrated whenever I don’t drink enough water.
This tends to be more obvious on my face. I get patches of dry skin around my cheeks, nose and upper lips – sometimes around my eyebrows too. Regardless of the type of product I put on my face be it a moisturiser, a primer or even my foundation, my skin manages to drink up every liquid possible. Essentially, leaving me looking patchy by the end of the day. I especially suffer from this during the colder months and early spring.
My most recent bout was about three weeks ago. I tried every moisturiser in my stash but nothing got rid of the dryness. In fact, my face began flaring up due to how sensitivity. I forgot I had a spare tube of the this magic potion hidden away.
Enriched with avocado and apricot kernel oils, the Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask works to replenish moisture and is perfect for dry skin types. As recommended on the packaging, night time is the best time to use this produc. As we sleep, it quenches the skin’s thirst whilst creating a reservoir for the next day – however, on occasions, I have used it during the day when I know my skin needs an extra moisture shot.
I use this mask twice a week but as the weather gets warmer, I’ll cut back to once we week. After the first night, I always find that my skin looks and feels better. I get the best results whenever I apply it after cleansing, when the skin is still slightly damp. This is because skin absorbs more hydration when it’s moist and pores are still open.
