Natural Oil Dispersion Technology in nügg Face Masks

By nügg Beauty
on October 19, 2016

Best Face Mask

The face masks from nügg are made using an innovative technology called Natural Oil Dispersion Technology. The technology makes use of physical properties to bind oil and water which eliminates the need for chemical emulsifiers and also results in very small particles that can deliver powerful actives and natural oils to the skin more effectively.

Usually, chemical surfactants or emulsifiers are used in beauty products to mix oil and water. As we all know, oil and water do not usually mix at normal conditions, so these emulsifiers are used to bind them together to form a stable emulsion. However, over time chemical emulsifiers can weaken the natural skin barrier function, as they affect the lipid structure in your skin. A weakened skin barrier function is often the culprit behind skin issues like irritation, dehydration, dryness, redness, premature aging, and many more. In addition, such skin damage can lower protection from allergens which is negatively affecting your skin.

Natural Face Masks

This is where the significance of the use of the Natural Oil Dispersion Technology in nügg Face Masks comes in. The technology uses a high shear, high pressure process through which the size of the oil particles is made very small and the surface energy of the oil particles is changed, allowing for a stable oil-in-water emulsion without the need for chemical emulsifiers. This allows nügg Beauty to offer effective, yet gentle skin care products that nourish the skin while at the same time protecting and enhancing the natural skin barrier function.

This breakthrough technology paired with high quality ingredients and practical single serve pods that protect the product from oxidation makes nügg Face Masks a must-have for all who care for their skin.

Easy Tips To Develop A Masking Routine

Some individuals find it hard to take care of their skin care needs and this might cause undesirable skin problems. The busy lives we lead, work stress, and many other factors might be the reasons for this. Thus, developing a masking routine might seem tough and challenging. However, effective skin care does not always mean taking a lot of much time, and it can be done with ease at your own convenience.

Face masks from nügg are highly recommended by beauty experts because of their ease of use and convenience. nügg face masks come in single-serve pods, which maintain the freshness of the product and makes them easy to carry around. nügg face masks can also be easily stored in your cosmetic bag or carry-on due to its small TSA friendly size.

Time Of Day

It is better to pick a time of day, which is less rushed to do your masking. If you are planning to do masking in the morning, then wear the mask while you are making coffee or eating breakfast. Similarly, if you are planning to apply the mask in the evening, then do so while you are catching up on your latest Netflix obsession, cooking dinner, or while reading a book.

Commit Yourself

Set a masking goal that you are confident you can achieve. An initial goal of using a mask once or twice a week is a great place to start. Pick a day that is particular easy for you, maybe during the weekend when time tends to be a little more open. The ease of nügg face masks will help you to get in habit of using a mask. Once you get comfortable with incorporating one facial mask into your routine and see the wonderful results, you will easily find time to use them more frequently.

Keep Them Handy

Often time we keep skincare products buried in drawers in our bedrooms and we completely forget about them. Try keeping your essential skincare products in the bathroom so that you are more likely to maintain a consistent routine after cleansing. This should include your weekly face mask. If the face masks are handy at the time of cleansing, then you will certainly use one of them. nügg face masks are an excellent choice for this purpose due to their small size and the instant results they offer.

Camellia Flowers are an amazing gift of nature, and are quite beneficial for our skin. Camellia oil is rich in polyphenols, fatty oleic acid, plant proteins, as well as Vitamins A, B, D, and E. Studies say that camellias have the largest number of naturally occurring antioxidants present within them.

Originally found in East Asian countries, camellia seed oil has been in use for centuries. Traditionally, Chinese households used camellia oil for cooking as well as in salad dressings and marinades, for its rich nutritional benefits. Apart from that, camellia oil was also used as a lubricant to prevent corrosion of woodworking tools in many Asian cultures.

Facial Mask

In skincare, camellia oil was originally used in soaps, moisturizers, and lip-gloss. But today, camellia seed oil is well known all over the world for it’s ability to deal with dry skin and acne, and many beauty products use camellia oil for its skin care traits.

Why nügg Face Masks Use Camellia Oil

Camellia seed oil is a light, low-viscous oil that acts as a natural moisturizer for dry skin. The oil also helps to prevent breakouts, fight wrinkles and stretch marks, as well as sustain a healthy, dewy glow on the skin. As camellia oil is blessed with abundant amount of naturally occurring antioxidants, it can also help to protect your skin from free radical damage. Being a key ingredient in the nügg Hydrating Face Mask, camellia seed oil leaves the skin looking & feeling soft, plump, and hydrated.

Skin Breakouts And How Deep Cleansing Can Help Prevent It

By nügg Beauty
on September 30, 2016

Face Mask

There are numerous skin products available on the market that claim to help you prevent all types of skin breakouts. However, topical treatments are not always the entire solution to getting rid of spots and acne.

Breakouts can be a sign of internal issues and it can be stopped only by clearing the underlying problem. An example can be the hormonal acne that is caused due to imbalance of body hormones at teenage, which can be controlled by balancing the body hormones.

Breakouts On Different Areas Of The Face And Their Meaning

Some of the alternative medicine practices say that where your breakouts are forming can give clues about your internal health. This practice is called Face Mapping and uses the location of skin breakouts to diagnose internal problems. Face Mapping divides breakouts on the face into eight different zones:

Forehead: Breakouts relate to digestion problems due to lack of water and presence of toxins. The simple solution to counter that is to drink lot of water and stay away from junk food.

T-Zone: As most people have combination skin, theirT-Zone usually remains oily, making it more acne and breakout prone. As our noseis connected to the liver, acne at T-Zone could signify liver dysfunction. Putting a check on your alcohol intake and greasy food diet can help here.

Around the eyes: Acne around the eyes is connected to the health of kidneys. Even dark circles around the eyes show that your kidney is not working properly or that you are not drinking enough water. Staying hydrated is the simplest way to counter that.

Upper cheeks: Breakouts on the upper cheeks are related to the lungs.Quit smoking and avoid acidic foods to fight back. However, external factors like the presence of bacteria on cell phone surface or pillow cover can also lead to skin breakouts on the upper cheeks. Adding some green veggies and wheatgrass juice in your diet could help.

Lower cheeks: Poor dental hygiene is usually attributed to skin breakouts in the lower cheek area. The solution is to brush and floss regularly and to avoid sweet foods and drinks.

Nose: Acne on the nose is linked to heart, where bulbous or swelled nose signifies increased blood pressure. The best counter-measure would be is to modify your diet. Reduce salt, avoid energy drinks, and include more fruits and vegetables in your daily routine.

Chin: Chin breakouts are linked to intestinal issues, especially the small intestine. Here too, a modest diet change can be a life savior. Avoid oily foods and dairy products, increase your fiber intake, and drink herbal tea to boost up the digestion process.

Ears: Skin issues at the ears are also linked to kidneys, and breakouts at ears can signal dehydration. As said earlier, the solution here is to drink more water and stay hydrated, but make sure you stay away from aerated drinks, coffee, and alcohol.

Face Mask For Dry Skin

Combating Breakouts Externally

Of course, taking care of your skin from the outside is just as important. We recommend using the nügg Deep Cleansing Face Mask to rid the skin of excess sebum and ultimately keep the skin balanced and clear. The gel formula of the Deep Cleansing face mask will never dry out your skin and leave it stripped.

The jojoba oil and cucumber extract in the nügg face mask provide a deep pore cleanse, while the Aloe juice helps to hydrate and balance out your skin. Our Deep Cleansing face mask is made with 98% naturally derived ingredients.

If you have oily skin, you can use the nügg Deep Cleansing Face Mask up to twice a day. nügg Deep Cleansing Face Mask is a great supplement to anyone’s skincare routine and perfectly helps to keep your skin balanced, remove excess sebum, and to maintain an overall clean look and feel.

Post Workout Skin Care Tips To Keep Your Skin Glowing

Best Face Mask

Finishing a workout feels amazing – minus the fact that your skin is sticky and you’re dripping sweat. The bad news is that letting sweat sit on your skin can lead to some pesky skin problems. This is because sweat carries the grime and dirt built up on your pores and if it is allowed to sit on your skin, the dirt will settle back to your skin and can lead to irritation and breakouts. Jumping in the shower and giving your skin a good cleanse immediately after your sweat session is important in order to prevent all that sweat from doing any damage.

nügg You might be familiar with the importance of having a proper post workout skin routine, but only a few know that sometimes your cleanser just doesn’t cut it. We recommend using the nügg Deep Cleansing face mask to help balance your skin and remove excess sebum and dirt. After you cleanse your skin, apply the mask for 5-10 minutes while you moisturize your body or dry your hair. The single-use pod makes the mask super easy to bring with you to the gym so be sure to keep a couple in your gym bag at all times.

The jojoba oil, cucumber extract, and Aloe juice in the nügg Deep Cleansing face mask not only cleanse your skin perfectly, but also hydrate and moisturize it. This nügg face mask will leave your skin clean, soft and with a silky-matte finish. Our Deep Cleansing face mask can be used on any skin type and it is a must-have in your post-workout skin care routine.

10 Foods You Can Eat For Better Skin

By nügg Beauty
on September 22, 2016

Natural Face Mask

You already know that adding lots of green veggies and fruits to your diet will boost your energy, help in the healthy functioning of your body, and fight diseases. However, apart from these benefits, certain foods can work wonders for your skin too.

Remember that what you eat really affects your complexion. Here are some of the best skin-benefiting foods, which you should include in your diet to achieve healthy and beautiful skin.

  • Dark Chocolate – Cocoa flavonals have great antioxidant properties that help to hydrate the skin. Eat a small piece of over 80% dark chocolate a day to reap the benefits.
  • Green tea – Antioxidants in green tea help to boost blood flow and rush oxygen to the skin, helping your skin receive essential nutrients for a healthy complexion.
  • Kale – Nutrients in kale help to absorb free radicals from the sun. Also, the Vitamin C and Vitamin A content in kale helps to make the skin smoother.
  • Walnuts – Walnuts are one of the best sources of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are great for keeping skin hydrated and soft.
Best Face Mask
  • Almond milk – Substitute regular milk with almond milk in your coffee or cereal. Dairy is known to be highly inflammatory, which can further irritate skin issues such as acne or rashes. So, replacing that would help to avoid such problems.
  • Olive oil – It contains monounsaturated fatty acids that reduce the signs of aging, where its antioxidant polyphenols content reduces free radicals. Overall, olive oil helps to preserve your youthful skin.
  • Kiwi –Rich in Vitamin C, kiwi fruit amazingly helps in reducing wrinkles and dryness from your skin.
  • Pumpkin –Cooked pumpkin is one of the excellent sources of beta-carotene, which helps in the growth of skin cells. This will help to keep the skin soft, smooth, and wrinkle-free - and no, your pumpkin spice latte doesn't count.

In conjunction with nügg Face Masks, these foods can help keep your skin in great shape. Try including them in your diet as much as possible.

Top 10 Masking Tips

By nügg Beauty
on September 21, 2016

Facial Mask

As The Face Mask Authority, the nügg team is doing a lot of masking day-in and day-out and a lot of research on masking. Here is a collection of our top 10 masking tips from our combined experience!

  1. Give yourself a lymphatic facial massage: The purpose of a lymphatic massage is to move fluid out of your tissues into your lymph nodes where bacteria and other harmful micro-organisms will be gotten rid of. While wearing a face mask, rub your face in circular motions, making sure to apply more pressure in the direction of the lymph nodes. Your skin will feel (and look) rejuvenated after this!
  2. Have an overnight facial: Sleeping with a face mask on is one of the best ways to treat your skin. It's especially perfect for solving dry winter skin. To do this, simply apply the entire contents of one of the nügg facial pods all over your face and leave on for about 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the excess with a damp wash cloth, leaving only a thin layer on your face when you go to bed.
  3. Try triple cleansing: Most cleansers strip your skin of moisture making it feel dry and tight afterward. Introduce some hydration into your cleansing routine by using the nügg Deep Cleansing mask a few times a week.
  4. Don't restrict it to just your face: The neck, hands and chest are one of the first places to show signs of aging, and therefore shouldn't be neglected. Applying the nügg Anti-Aging mask to these areas along with your face will help firm the skin and combat wrinkles.
  5. Use a mask before tanning: Exfoliation is key to achieving an even glow when self-tanning. nügg has an exfoliating mask that's great for preparing your skin and making sure your tanning application is smooth.
  6. Always have a face mask in your gym bag:  All that blood pumping and circulation when you exercise can only serve to make your skin glow and look more youthful. A lot of people don't get to reap these benefits because they leave sweat on their skin afterwards. Sweat can clog pores and lead to break-outs. Keeping a nügg Deep Cleansing mask in your gym bag will allow you to get all that sweat off your face right after your gym session, before it has the chance to do any damage.
  7. Keep masks on hand during air travel: Flying can seriously damage your skin, especially if you do it regularly. The cabin pressure and  dry/stale air can be a real ordeal for your skin. Using the nügg Revitalizing mask right after you travel can help refresh your skin.
  8. Use in preparation for lipstick application: Matte and liquid lipsticks need smooth and soft lips for an even application. Using them on dry/rough lips will make them crack and look unsightly. Applying the nügg Intense Lip Boosting Mask before and after application will prevent this and the common-place dryness that you face after taking off your lipstick for the day.
  9. Enhance your masking experience with a little chill: Put your facial masks in the fridge before you use them. This will infuse some invigoration and freshness into your skin. The best time to do this is after you've been out in the sun for a long period of time.
  10. Use it to recover from the effects of environmental pollution: Premature aging, uneven tone and skin cancer are some of the horrible effects of environmental pollution on our skin. Face masks can help your skin recover from exposure to harmful elements out there. The nügg De-Stress mask is a great fit for this purpose.

Myths Of Masking

By nügg Beauty
on September 20, 2016

Facial Mask

Many women have an idea in their head of what they believe a face mask should feel like, how often they should use one, and what the results will be. With all of the new face masks coming to the market, it’s time to break down some of these beliefs because they are quite often myths. Here are a handful of myths of masking which we are here to debunk.

Masking Myth 1: Masks should dry down on the skin

For many women, clay masks were the only type of facial mask out there when we were younger so to use a face mask that doesn’t dry down on the skin feels a bit funny. However, a face mask does NOT need to dry down on the skin in order to do it’s job and gel face masks do not but stay moist all along your masking experience. nügg Face Masks have a pleasant gel texture and are made with an aloe juice base. This allows for the mask to be highly nourishing on the skin and will never dry your skin or leave your skin with that undesirable tight feeling after removing which is particularly important if you have normal, dry and sensitive skin.

Also, if you do use clay masks or sheet masks that dry on your skin, beware of NEVER letting it sit on your face when it is dried because once they are fully dry, valuable moisture actually gets pulled out of your skin.

Masking Myth 2: All masks do the same thing

In addition to thinking masks should dry down on the skin, many believe that masks are strictly for skin that is experiencing breakouts. In reality there are different face masks to address all sorts of skin types and issues. Whatever “mood” your skin may be in, the right face mask can work wonders in addressing it. Each nügg face mask pod is meant to address a different issue which makes it easy for you to mix and match to your skin’s ever-changing skin concerns (Want to find out which face masks is right for you? Click here). May you have dry skin or aging skin, dull skin or oily skin, stressed skin or accumulated dead skin cells, there is a nügg face mask that is just right for you!

Masking Myth 3: Masking is more of a treat than it is a truly effective skin treatment

Best Face Mask

When people think of masking, many think of it more as a nice pampering experience than a highly effective skincare treatment. Although it is true that using a face mask is a wonderful way to relax and relieve stress, incorporating facial masks into your weekly or even daily regime is an excellent way to address specific skin concerns and to keep your complexion glowing and your skin healthy. For example, if you face dry skin issues or dry patches, the nügg 4 day skin treatment regimes is an effective and easy to integrate remedy, if your skin looks dull or tired, our exfoliating face mask and revitalizing face mask are the right match, and if you have oily or acne-prone skin, you should use our deep cleansing face mask every night and our soothing face mask once to twice a week.

Masking Myth 4: Masking is inconvenient, time consuming& only for the weekends

Using a face mask doesn’t need to be a time consuming project. Unlike some masks, nügg face masks are easy to apply and wear at your own convenience. Whether it’s while you enjoy your coffee in the morning or in the evening while catching up on your favorite TV series, or working away on your computer, you can wear a nügg face mask whenever you please, and reap flawless benefits in just 5 to 15 minutes. The gel formula will stay in place until you rinse off and won’t become tight and uncomfortable! Work a face mask into your routine at least twice a week and you will see a major improvement in your skin’s overall health and appearance.

Masking Myth 5: Just a thin layer is enough for full performance of the mask

Although the amount of product in nügg face mask pods seems generous for one use, we assure you it’s for a reason! In order to get the most out to our face mask, we recommend that you use the entire content of one pod for one use. This is because masks are meant to be applied in a thick layer because that thick gel layer forms a barrier on your skin that helps drive the ingredients into your skin. So applying the entire content of a pod will give you the best results.
