How To Use Rodial’s Dragon’s Blood Eye Masks
Our social media executive Lucy gave these eye masks a go and LOVED them! And they couldn’t be easier to use either! Here’s our step to step guide on how to get the most out of yours…
- Remove each eye mask from the fabric sheet and apply the directly to the (freshly cleansed!) skin under your eyes. The narrow side should face towards your nose, while the wider side faces the outer corner of your eye.
- Remove the protective fabric sheet.
- Leave the masks on your skin for 20-30 minutes.
- After the allocated time, peel off the masks.
- Gently massage any residue into your skin and you’ll be left with gorgeously soft under eyes.
The Key Ingredients In These Eye Masks
- Dragon’s blood: comforts and restores by hydrating skin
- Hyaluronic acid: helps to retain moisture levels in the skin, leaving the complexion looking hydrated and healthy
- Arnica extract: a naturally derived active known to soothe and reduce the appearance of under eye puffiness
What Is Dragon’s Blood?
Blood of the dragon (Croton lechleri) is a flowering tree found throughout South America, which gets its name from its dark red, latex-containing sap. And it’s this sap that’s become so wonderful in skincare!
Dragon’s blood has been used for generations, as a result of its antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties. The Romans and Greeks were believed to have used it for medicinal purposes, while Chinese warriors were said to have applied it to help heal battle wounds.
The Benefits Of Dragon’s Blood
The naturally occurring compounds in dragon’s blood are thought to help skin in numerous ways. They can soothe skin, reduce inflammation and redness and even help create a ‘second skin’ barrier that locks in moisture…
Dragon’s blood can add volume to skin, making it look and feel plumper. Deeply moisturising, it also promotes cell renewal, can boost collagen production and is packed with antioxidants and wards off free radicals that cause premature ageing.
2. Treats Breakouts
The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of this sap repair and protect the skin from environmental damage. Anti-bacterial properties also help in treating breakouts by clearing bacteria and infection from the pores. Moisturising properties will also soothe irritable skin and reduce inflammation and redness.
3. A Known Healer
Since dragon’s blood has anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties, it’s great at healing. Scrapes, scars, wounds – whatever skin problems you may be facing, this sap forms a barrier-like second skin, shielding your complexion from environmental damage.
4. Relaxing scent
The Dragon Blood scent is known to soothe and relax, meaning products infused with this ingredient can take your pampering skincare routine to a whole new level.
