Ellie Malmin Reviews Illumask

The product & the claim…

If you’ve spent any time browsing the beauty aisle lately, you’ve no doubt noticed a new product called Illumask. It uses light-emitting diode (LED) to reduce the signs of acne & aging. This kind of skin care treatment is also known as photodynamic therapy (PDT). On the market now there are two separate masks, one for acne prone skin and one for aging skin, to accomplish these two separate skin care objectives. The product claims that in 30 fifteen minute light therapy treatments you can bypass the costlier dermatologist office visit and achieve the same results for a fraction of the cost at around $30 for each mask. We decided to do an Illumask review & report our results along with the expert analysis of the science behind the product.

The Science behind the claim…

For Aging Skin…

Skin cell regeneration, which is the secret to younger looking skin, has been shown to be stimulate with the right kind of light. Particular wavelengths of light will fuel an enzyme that works to promote skin cells to increase their renewal & restoration. This process increases circulation that in turn produces collagen & elastin. These last two elements make your skin more even tone, firmer, smoother as well as reduce appearance of those pesky wrinkles & fine lines.

For Clearer Skin…

Acne is caused when a buildup of skin oil causes an acne causing bacteria (Propionibacterium) to increase. This bacteria then works together with the excess oil & common everyday dead skin to clog your pores which causes inflammation & then you have an acne breakout. The red & blue light emitted from the mask work together to kill the acne causing bacteria when the bacteria’s light sensitive compounds absorb the light & generate a photochemical reaction.

The Results are in…

Ellie tested the anti-aging mask out along with a friend who used the anti-acne mask. They discovered that, along with the claims of reduced acne and reversed signs of aging skin, you’ll experience a calm time to completely relax. The anti-aging skin mask made their skin feel softer & rejuvenated after about ten days and they are totally in love with the results. The light action in the mask actually helps with hyper pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles & the pores themselves. Ellie’s friend, who often experiences acne breakouts, reported less inflammations and a tingling sensation that she equates to the light rays fighting the bacteria that is there. She also says that her makeup application feels much smoother and fresher, although she’d rather stay now all day makeup-less because her skin feels so good. Even so, these two treatments for acne and signs of aging should be use in tandem with your already well-formulated skin-care routine to achieve the best results.
