3-Minutes to Brighter, Smoother Skin: Ursa Major Bright & Easy Flash Mask
As a new mother, I find myself in need of a little more skin care TLC than usual (thank you, sleepless nights!)—yet my time is more precious than ever, so my skin care routine needs to be efficient. These days, my skin needs a combination of brightening and moisturizing to look its best, and I recently found that duo in one of Ursa Major’s newest products—the Bright & Easy 3-Minute Flash Mask.
This gentle mask lightly exfoliates skin and removes dull, dead skin cells using AHAs (derived from hibiscus and pineapple), BHAs (derived from aspen bark), and pomegranate enzymes. With a base of aloe and witch hazel, it hydrates skin and combats inflammation for a balanced, soothed complexion. The mask also contains alfalfa, which functions like retinol to improve skin’s firmness and elasticity. Finally, this multi-tasking wonder features sodium hyaluronate, a derivative of hyaluronic acid that more readily penetrates skin to hydrate and plump cells (read: reduced appearance of fine lines).
This mask is such a treat for me because it gives my skin a noticeable brightening boost while allowing me to indulge in a little “me time” without a major time commitment. Indeed, this innovative treatment is for anyone who loves skin care but is always pressed for time! Alternatively, this mask could have an important role in a multi-step skin care regimen as it prepares skin to better absorb serums and moisturizers.
The ritual: Apply a quarter-sized amount of Ursa Major Flash Mask to freshly cleansed skin and leave on for three minutes. Rinse and pat dry. Follow with moisturizer. Use 1-2 times a week. Safe for all skin types.
