Singaporean skincare brand Kyssva recently launched their microbiome-friendly sheet mask – AGLOW Instant Dewy Mask. The mask uses prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics to restore and maintain the balance of microorganisms on the skin. Because, promoting a healthy microbiome can in fact help improve skin hydration, reduce inflammation, and even protect against premature ageing.

If you are new to the term microbiome, it is basically the collection of microorganisms that live on and inside our bodies, including the skin. Recent research has found that maintaining a healthy microbiome is crucial for overall skin health, which is why microbiome skincare products are designed to nourish and support the beneficial bacteria on our skin, while helping to keep harmful bacteria at bay.

This ecosystem plays a crucial role in maintaining skin health by forming a protective barrier against harmful bacteria, maintaining moisture balance, and regulating inflammation. When disrupted by factors such as chemicals or environmental stressors, it can lead to various skin concerns such as dryness, irritation, and breakouts. 

While the concept of the skin’s microbiome is not a recent discovery, it has gained increasing attention and recognition in the skincare industry in recent years. Through ongoing research and technological advancements, we have come to better understand the crucial role that the microbiome plays in maintaining healthy, radiant skin. At Kyssva, we’re committed to harnessing this knowledge to create innovative, microbiome-friendly skincare products that support the skin’s natural balance and promote optimal skin health,” – Francesca Tan, Founder of Kyssva. 

The AGLOW Instant Dewy Mask is an excellent choice for those with sensitive skin who desire a glass-like, hydrated appearance. Each box comes with five sheets of freeze-dried masks and five glass vials of Aglow Essence (20ml).

The mask contains four types of Hyaluronic Acids, which work together to deliver a hydrated glow and promote cellular repair. Additionally, the star ingredient, the desert resurrection plant, helps to prevent premature ageing by protecting the skin from oxidation. 

To soothe and reduce redness, the mask also contains Cica (Centella Asiatica, a plant with soothing and barrier repairing properties), making it a great choice for those with sensitive skin who prefer clean beauty products without any preservatives.

The AGLOW Instant Dewy Mask priced at $59 for five pieces, is available for purchase on the Kyssva website.
