Kourtney Kardashian recently posted a selfie of her and sister, Kim, wearing a decidedly odd-looking facial mask, and the world has gone crazy. Apparently, Kim fell in love with the facial mask and convinced her sister to give it a try herself.
The Kardashians are known for their glowing skin, after all, and they take skin care very seriously. But what’s so special about this mask? Why are Kim and Kourtney Kardashian going crazy over this face mask?
It looks weird when on
The reason people were so obsessed with Kim and Kourtney Kardashian’s face mask selfie is that it just looks so weird when it’s on. Once applied and dried, the face mask makes your skin look as though you’ve suddenly aged a few decades. It appears as though there are wrinkles, and the skin looks very dry. The good news, of course, is that it doesn’t stay that way.
The results are supposedly out of this world
Once the face mask is washed away, the skin underneath is supposed to be baby soft and smooth. The face mask is made by Hanacure, and is meant to soften the signs of aging. It costs $110, but the results are supposed to be well worth the investment.
This isn’t the only strange beauty hack the Kardashian sisters have, either. As stated, they take their skincare very seriously and have been known to use solutions that range from drastic to downright strange. So what else do the Kardashian sisters do to keep their skin looking that amazing?
Kourtney says no to dairy and goes organic
To help keep her skin looking smooth, young, and free of blemishes, Kourtney Kardashian has gotten rid of all dairy in her diet. She has also gone mostly all organic, and we don’t just mean with her food. According to Kourtney, she also uses organic skin care products, pillows, Q-Tips, and everything else she can find to make the switch with.
Kim Kardashian uses oil pre-workout
Before she works out, Kim Kardashian takes her favorite hydrating oils and slathers it all over her body. She does this when the skin is fully dry, and swears that it helps her skin stay looking clear and plump. A dermatologist disagrees with the pre-workout routine, stating it could actually clog pores if used this way and cause breakouts. That hasn’t stopped Kim from continuing what she feels works best for her, however.
Kim’s infamous vampire facial
Despite stating regret because of how painful it was, Kim Kardashian’s vampire facial has certainly reached infamy. The procedure involves taking very tiny needles and puncturing the skin all over the face. This is supposed to be cause the body to naturally produce new collagen, which is responsible for making your skin look young and supple. A bit of your own plasma (a part of the blood) is then administered to the same area to speed the process.
Kim Kardashian mixes up the typical application process
When most people apply their skincare products, they start with the thinnest product and work their way to the thickest. This method would have facial oil being applied first. Not Kim Kardashian, however. She applies her facial oil last, because she says that “Applying facial oil lasts acts as a barrier for the other moisturizers you applied. It seals all of the products so that they effectively hydrate the skin.”
It’s not only that she applies facial oils last, either. She applies most of her facial products to the majority of her body, not just her face. This includes applying both oil and moisturizer to other parts of her body. She has specifically cited the neck, arms, legs, and chest as areas she likes to use her facial oil.
