Did you know that Alaska’s glacier water is one of the purest waters on earth, surpassing normal drinking water standards by a staggering 500%? What makes Alaska’s glacier water so clean and pristine is its source: it comes from very ancient snowfall that has throughout the centuries compacted into extremely dense blocks ice of ice.
While all other types of water are continually re-cycling through the earth to the atmosphere and then back to earth again, picking up all sorts of toxins and pollutants along the way, the blocks of ice within which glacier water is frozen keep it protected from all these dangerous substances. As these blocks of ice slowly melt, they release crystalline water that’s rich in oxygen and natural minerals that deeply hydrate and soothe stressed skin.
This is precisely why Alaska’s glacier water is currently experiencing a wave of popularity in South Korea, finding its way in many lotions and potions as well as sheet masks. One of the best I’ve tried so far must be It’s Skin Glacier Water Of Alaska Pure Moisture Mask Sheet, an intensely hydrating treatment for dry and stressed winter skin.
In addition to Alaska’s glacier water, this sheet mask also contains glycerin and sodium hyaluronate, two powerful humectants that attract water from the environment into my skin and bind it in. Sodium hyaluronate is particularly potent because it can hold up to 1000 times in weight in water. Just wearing the sheet mask for the recommended 20 minutes is probably equal to giving my skin two full glasses of water to drink!
On top of it, the essence the mask is soaked in also contains allantoin and panthenol, two soothing substances that can reduce the symptoms of inflammation, such as redness and itchiness. This is why I find this sheet mask to be particularly useful now that the colder temperatures are seriously testing my skin’s resilience, putting it under a lot of stress.
Needless to say, It’s Skin Glacier Water Of Alaska Pure Moisture Mask Sheet feels very refreshing on my skin, infusing it with a waterfall of moisture and soothing any winter redness away.
