Educational Series: ALERT! Are you using the DMS Mask with Vitamins in your skin routine?

by | 20 September 2022

The dermaviduals DMS Mask with Vitamins is an essential must have in everyone’s skincare routine! This leave-on mask (which can also be used as a moisturiser), is fortified with physiological substances that mimics the biochemistry of the skin’s lipid profile, whilst also containing vitamins A, C, E and Provitamin B5 (D-Panthenol), to aid in cellular regeneration, hydration and protection of both the epidermis and the dermis.

Each day the skin suffers multiple attacks whether physical or mechanical, from undesirable microorganisms or the sun, and it withstands these with a very sophisticated detection, protection and defence systems in the epidermis and the dermis. However, as we age, our natural built-in defence systems decline, and our skin struggles to neutralise the damaging free radicals it comes into contact with daily. This in turn, results in dry, damaged, uneven and wrinkled skin.

What is the science behind the mask and why should I use it?


The DMS Mask with Vitamins aids in topical antioxidant support by supplementing the skin with the cellular nutrition it requires to function, in order to fight off damaging free radicals and to repair the skin barrier defence systems from the outside-in.

The DMS Mask with Vitamins has been formulated following the principles of Corneotherapy that specifically aims at the recovery and regeneration of the stratum corneum barrier (outermost layer of the epidermis), that has been rendered defective or disrupted by a multiple of physical, mechanical, chemical and psychological insults/stressors. When the stratum corneum is impaired, it has a negative knock-on effect to the viability of the entire epidermis and all of the related skin barrier defence systems, which renders the appearance of the skin compromised.

As mentioned, this mask contains a very effective combination of vitamins A, C, E and Provitamin B5 (D-Panthenol) together with our famous DMS, as well as Vitamin F in the form of liposomes and nanoparticles. The effects of this mask are still measurable in the skin after 72 hours – it really is the mask that keeps on giving! Its physiological composition repairs, replenishes and regenerates the first three lines of skin barrier defence and is absolutely essential if the skin is showing signs of cellular damage and premature ageing.

What are the benefits of the mask?


Let’s take a look at the benefits of the vitamins used in this mask, and what they provide to the skin in more detail…

Vitamin A:

– Cellular regeneration
– Reduces wrinkles via stimulation of collagen synthesis
– Induces wound healing
– Increases skin smoothness
– Protects the skin against UV radiation
– Diminishes pigmentation

Vitamin C:

– For protection and support of collagen formation
– Free radical scavenger
– Tyrosinase inhibitor i.e., slows down the synthesis of melanin within the skin
– Strengthens collagen strands and protects DNA
– Anti-inflammatory

Vitamin E:

– Free radical scavenger
– Support of epithelization (renewal of skin cells)
– Increases hydration and improves skin elasticity
– Great for stretch marks and perineum massage during pregnancy
– Protects cell membranes against UV damage
– Protects skin lipids from peroxidation
– Anti-inflammatory (reduces diffused redness)

Provitamin B5 (D-Panthenol):

– Moisturising
– Skin smoothing
– Inhibits itching
– Anti-bacterial
– Accelerates wound healing
– Supports regeneration of the skin
– Stimulates cell proliferation


It is well established that the daily application of stabilised vitamins on the skin can slow down collagen degradation, rebuild connective tissue, as well as improve the conditions of pigmentation, fine lines/wrinkles, acne and scarring.
