Much like daily Juice Generation runs, using face masks on the regular can come at a dear price—and you can't exactly whip up a homemade sheet mask like you can a Blueberry-Acai smoothie. But that's about to change...
At a recent International Beauty Expo in Korea, Refinery 29's K-beauty editor discovered a juicer that creates hydrogel masks at the press of a button. All you have to do is add fruits and/or vegetables, a special tablet, and water. Five minutes later, voilà! You've got an ultra-fresh mask packed with antioxidant-rich fleshy fruits and leafy greens.
What's more is that you can replace water with milk for brightening, serums, or essences. If you're asking yourself what "essences" refers to—you're not alone. Essences is a skincare category created in Korea that consists of liquids or lotions loaded with active ingredients, such as moisturizing hyaluronic acid and skin-repairing glycerin, which deliver next-level revitalization for the skin after cleansing.
Unfortunately the mean, green, and breakout-fighting machine is still in testing mode, but is slated to hit the market in 2016. When it does, it will come with a recipe book that will be your guide to pH-conscious mask-mixing.
Now, fingers crossed the next edition of the juicer comes with a bespoke multi-masking feature. Just, you know, a thought.
