When I hit my thirties, I realized that I was in need of a true skincare routine. Up until then, I had used good products (or so I thought) but I wasn’t really sure what they were doing, what order I should be using them in, or if they were even the right things for my skin. When I finally went to an aesthetician for a proper consultation, I learned that the products I was using weren’t actually doing anything to address my concerns and may have actually been making things worse. I was so frustrated! But my aesthetician had a solution. She recommended that I look into Maskād, a skincare company that recently launched to at-home consumers after becoming popular with doctors and aestheticians over the past few years.
When I got home, I went on the Maskād website to do some research. I was immediately impressed. The brand was started by a really interesting husband and wife team. Dr. Sanjay Batra has a PhD in medical physiology and completed post-doctoral training in Japan and Switzerland. He’s also a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology and an Adjunct Professor at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine. Amy Batra has 20 years of experience in start-up companies and big pharma, and her core expertise includes aesthetics, dermatology, regenerative and functional medicine.
So the team behind the brand was super impressive, but what about the products? I did a deep dive on the website and learned that, yes, they were backed by strong credentials as well. Not only are all of the products plant based, dermatologically tested, and cruelty free, they also include some incredible ingredients. Here’s a breakdown of the products in the Maskād routine:
The Anti Aging Serum (aka the Maskād Peptide Bomb) is made from a host of peptides and growth factors that encourage skin cell renewal and support collagen and elastin levels. Clinical studies have shown that products containing growth factors can help reduce appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve appearance of age spots and even out pigmentation, reduce skin roughness, improve skin texture and elasticity, and improve skin smoothness and tightness. So basically all the things I was looking for.
The Hydrating Serum replenishes nutrients the skin needs to feel smooth and appear younger. This oil free moisturizer contains highly purified water and hyaluronic acid which provides weightless moisture, and antioxidant benefits, revitalizes skin’s outer layer, smooths fine lines and wrinkles, helps draw and retain moisture, and reduces inflammation. Did I mention that it only has 3-ingredients? Meaning there aren’t a bunch of unnecessary additives diluting the main ingredients, giving your skin the best chance of using those ingredients. This also makes the Serum ideal for even the most sensitive of skin - as they say, less is more, especially when it comes to skincare.
Thanks to the recommendation from my aesthetician plus what I learned on the website, I was intrigued enough to go all in and buy all of the products, plus the Derma Roller which promises to create exfoliation and allow the skin to get the full benefit of the products. My order arrived quickly and that night I started my new routine. After cleansing, I rolled the Derma Roller across my skin, applying light pressure. Once my skin was a little pink, I applied about 5 drops of the Anti Aging Serum to my face and chest, followed by a few drops of the Hydrating Serum. I really liked the texture of the serums, and was excited to start seeing results.
After using the Maskād routing for a few months now, I’m blown away by the results. Fine lines are diminished, dark spots are almost gone, and my skin feels smoother and tighter. For anyone looking for a science-baked skincare routine that really works, try Maskād. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
