Believe it or not, you can achieve healthy skin without going for overpriced, complicated facial treatments. Good skincare starts at home by including the right products like the LOOKEE® G-Mask™ into a daily routine. Far-infrared (FIR) light therapy is a new up-and-coming skincare treatment known for treating sensitive skin and improving the effectiveness of other facial skincare products. Here's how you can use FIR therapy to heal spots, acne, and blemishes and start your skin's journey to becoming healthy and radiant.
How Does Infrared Light Therapy Work?
Just like all skincare treatments, it's essential to know how a product actually works and whether or not it will be suitable for your skin type. Infrared light therapy involves exposing the skin to gentle wavelengths of light. Like topical products, light photons can penetrate and be absorbed by the skin.
When this happens, cells within the skin are stimulated to produce higher levels of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a nucleotide that plays a role in various intracellular processes. ATP provides many skincare benefits such as anti-aging protection and ensuring that the skin is well-hydrated. Hence, regular use of far-infrared light therapy can prove to be effective in maintaining your skin's health.
Stimulate Collagen Production:
Studies have shown that far-infrared waves can stimulate the production of collagen when used as a facial treatment. Collagen is responsible for maintaining the skin's health and appearance. However, as humans get older, their bodies produce less of the protein. This leads to the formation of spots, wrinkles, fine lines, and dull skin. By using FIR therapy, you can benefit from increased cellular repair and blood circulation.
Increased collagen production can also offer the following skin care benefits:
- Skin rejuvenation & restoration.
- Brightens skin to fade blemishes, hyperpigmentation & dark spots.
- Smoothing fine lines & wrinkles.
- Increasing skin metabolism.
- Tightening skin & shrinking pores.
- Strengthening skin immunity & tolerance.
How to Use The LOOKEE® G-Mask For Glowing, Radiant Skin
The LOOKEE® G-Mask has different functions that provide unique skin benefits. The first is using the device to combat acne and promote cellular regeneration. By balancing the production of sebum and stimulating the skin to detoxify itself of impurities, The G-Mask emits wavelengths of 6 - 14 μm. Commonly referred to as “The Light Of Life”. Since these wavelengths are the same ones naturally emitted from the human body, they resonate with the skin cells to stimulate repair and regeneration.
The device can also be used in conjunction with other facemasks and products to improve their overall effectiveness. By putting on the G-Mask beforehand, it opens up your pores for maximum absorption, and wearing the device after you've completed your skincare routine promotes synergetic absorption.
Our skin's absorption increases by ten times its normal rate when the deep-skin temperature increases by just 1-degree Celsius. However, If your skin temperature is below 28°C (82.4°F), your products won't be absorbed as well due to your pores being closed. The G-Mask far infrared waves are able to surpass the surface skin, which allows for a phenomenal absorption boost. With daily use, the G-Mask will maximize the effectiveness of your facial skincare products & help you achieve unparalleled results.
The device has three temperature settings to suit your skin's sensitivity. It automatically starts with the white light, at the low temperature of 122°F - 140°F (50°C - 60°C). As your skin gets used to the device, you can move up to the next level, which is the yellow light at a mid-temperature range of 140°F - 149°F (60°C - 65°C). Finally, once your skin has gradually improved, you can try red light, at the high temperature of 149°F - 158°F (65°C - 70°C). Each session lasts 30 to 40 minutes.
