What Is The Hanacure Effect?
Korean skincare regimens keep evolving and introducing new innovative products that we can’t help but notice. Hanacure is another one of these innovations and it has taken the world by storm; celebrities have taken to Instagram to share their pictures while wearing the mask that supposedly changed Drew Barrymore’s life. As the mask dries and forms cracks, users tend to look zombie-like but this is all just a fun part of this whole mask experience.
Hanacure masks are supposed to shrink pores, and reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and wrinkles within a month. The active ingredients working in this mask according to the manufacturer are mainly botanicals that include extracts from lotus leaf, oriental raisin tree, green tea, honeysuckle flower, peony root, sophora root, and rosa canine fruit oil, and other peptides. To use the mask, one has to mix a serum and solution together, which can be applied to the face using a brush and kept on for 30 minutes before washing it off.
The experts who weighed in on the mask felt that the mixture of calming botanicals and peptides included in the mask do work on brightening the skin while minimising the appearance of pores. The lotus leaf extract is an amazing ingredient that can minimise oil production while the copper peptides stimulate collagen. The mask is also quite moisturising and does have an effect on hyperpigmentation especially with the inclusion of nicotinyl dipeptides that improve spots. However, the mask’s effect on wrinkles was not confirmed but it was felt that the moisturising properties of the mask do improve the appearance of wrinkles but not for long term. But all in all, this is indeed a mask worth trying as it does deliver solutions to a number of problems but it does not replace your other skin care routines.
