Victoria Beckham’s Secret To Youthful Skin (And Where You Can Buy An Affordable Version)

Victoria Beckham’s Secret To Younger Looking Skin – And Where You Can Get An Affordable Version

Hey Lovelies!

You may have seen news reports flooding the Internet today, revealing Victoria Beckham’s apparent secret to achieving younger looking skin. According to sources Victoria attributes her flawless complexion to a sheet mask. This particular sheet mask consists of caviar and crushed pearls and its results last for approximately 2 weeks. However, the sheet mask is priced at…wait for it – a shocking £1,000! Hmmm.

Should you wish to get your hands (and face) on this amazing-sounding sheet mask (a-hem, like the sucker that is me), but don’t have a spare £1,000 in your back pocket (again, like me)), read on. Here are some pretty awesome sheet masks alternatives that will give you incredible skin and won’t leave you wondering how to pay the mortgage! Not surprisingly, these products are mainly K-beauty brands.

1.Oh K Caviar Hydrogel Mask, £7.95, www.thebeautystore.com.

Combined in this exceptional formula is moisturising caviar (like Vitoria Beckham’s mask). This nourishing ingredient is loaded with amino acids that greatly improves the look and feel of your skin, leaving it appear gorgeously radiant. This little gem may not contain crushed pearls but it does include red tea extracts (brimming with antioxidant value) and charcoal powder to further detoxify. Go on – pamper yourself without breaking the bank!

2.Anthropologie Keep Cool And Shine Sheet Mask, ($12, Set of 3), www.anthropolgie.com

When it comes to anti-aging skincare, pearl is definitely having its moment in the spotlight. Known for its anti-aging and antioxidant-rich properties, as well as being highly beneficial for brightening, prohibiting skin discoloration, exfoliating and protecting, makes this a must-have ingredient in your sheet mask.

Anthropologie’s awesome sheet mask combines pearl extract, B3 and ginger root; thus, ensuring intensely anti-aging brightening benefits and deep rehydration. The ginger root further compliments the antioxidant support provided by pearl extract to guarantee a beautiful and youthful glow. (Shhh, it only costs $12).

3.Life Brand Anti-Aging Sheet Mask Caviar & Pearl Powder, $1.99, www.beauty.shoppersdrugsmart.ca (eBay for UK residents).

This brand is really difficult to get hold of in the UK – but if you can, it’s totally worth it. Combining both caviar and pearl powder, this mask makes light work of brightening, firming and creating that all-important youthful luminosity. For less than £2, you really can’t go wrong!.

N.B. Steer clear of this if you have particularly sensitive skin.

K-Beauty Skincare Part 2: Essence, Ampoule And Sheet Masks

Here is part 2 of the best K-beauty products to achieve fabulous results by using the much-loved Korean 10-step beauty system. The first article focuses on the adored double-cleanse, exfoliator and toner. You can find the article here.

This piece features awesome essence, ampoule and sheet mask products.

1.Essence: Try Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence (100ml), £14.99, www.asianbeautyplus.com

If you can get past the truly icky image that snail secretion evokes, the benefits of this essence will prove to be outstanding. Anyone out there with dry or damaged skin should give this essence a go. You may be thinking that perhaps it is just called Snail 96 Mucin Power and has no real relevance to an actual snail – but, alas, you would be wrong. Included in Cosrx’s lightweight and super-hydrating formula is filtered snail mucin – and it truly delivers exceptional results for replenishing and repairing damaged/dry skin. Better yet, this little secret weapon even offers anti-aging properties to help combat those pesky fine lines and wrinkles. Hooray (ish).

2.Ampoule: Try Leegeehaam – Grow Vita Propolis Ampoule (15ml), £13.46, www.yesstyle.com

Should you suffer from acne or blemishes, this is one ampoule that will be worth its weight in gold. Combining antibacterial and anti-fungal qualities found in propolis, the formula makes light work of diminishing nasty bacteria, as well as healing, regenerating and smoothing the skin. Also included is sea buckthorn (known for its cleansing, exfoliating, healing and regenerative abilities).

Furthermore, centella and witch-hazel are combined to provide a boost of skin-loving antioxidants, improve elasticity and reduce inflammation.

This product boasts a rich supply of antioxidants and vitamins that effectively nourish the skin, transforming it into a brighter and healthier complexion. I found the formula is quickly absorbed into the skin and noticed a significant improvement to my overall complexion within a week of use.

3.Sheet Mask For Dry Skin Try: Tony Moly I’m Real Aloe Mask Sheet Moisturising (21ml), £5, www.beautybay.com

Sheet masks are hugely popular amongst Korean women due to the fact that they WORK. However, there are so many different types available and it is worth doing a little research and sourcing one to suit your specific skin concern. I love Tony Moly’s I’m Real Aloe Mask Sheet Moisturising.

Before I continue, I should state that you must keep the mask on for the correct amount of time and don’t be lulled into the idea that keeping it on for longer will be an added bonus. Keeping the mask on for longer is said to have a reverse effect!

For superior hydrating and moisturising capabilities look no further than this awesome Tony Moly sheet mask.

Love this!
