Self Care Part 3: Practice Self-Love with KARUNA

Is social-distancing at home making you feel stressed-out and haggard? Why not consider giving yourself a break and indulge yourself with a spa day at home! It can be as simple as a short 20 minutes of "ME" time as you light up your favourite scented candle, put on a sheet of face mask and listen to your favourite songs on Spotify. Everybody needs to practice a little self-love once in a while for the sake of their mental wellbeing. As the saying goes "LOVING YOURSELF ISN'T VANITY, IT IS SANITY". 

Let Karuna's masks be part of your self-love journey and you will emerge feeling more beautiful both on the inside and out. :)

 

About the brand

KARUNA (KUH-Roo-NA) means: A loving compassion. Awakening the potential in people to bring optimism, kindness and care to all.

The founder, Linda Wang, suffered from eczema since childhood. One day, a doctor prescribed an ointment and instructed her to wrap the rash with plastic wrap to push the medicine deeper. The rash disappeared in a matter of days! That was the "AH HAH" moment! When she traveled to Asia and came across sheet masks, she knew instantly that this technique could work in the same way. She started to handpick ingredients that provided visible skin benefits and created Karuna –– "Wisdom for the Skin". Her collection of home beauty rituals offer cutting-edge skincare solutions designed to promote balance and beautiful skin, an act of self love reflected in your complexion. Karuna's custom-blended treatments combine innovative technology and natural ingredients from Asia and worldwide. Established in 2009, Karuna was the first sheet mask brand to be launched in the United States. Over the years, the brand has added to and expanded their skincare offerings to include daily essentials like cleansers, serums, and other treatments. They believe everyone should experience professional grade products that provide total and effective skincare at home.

 

What makes KARUNA different from other sheet masks?

1. The material of the mask:

Karuna's sheet masks are made from highest quality 100% biodegradable all-natural wood pulp fibres and Japanese sheer cotton. It retains 50% more moisture than synthetic material and forces pores to fully absorb nourishing ingredients that help create instant results –– much more than a serum would alone!

 KARUNA masks Other masks
  • 100% Biodegradable wood pulp cloth
  • Other materials such as Cotton, synthetic materials like Polyester etc.
  • Wood pulp absorbs 2 times better than cotton
  • Cotton absorb water while Polyester do not take in moisture at all and only leave a film on the skin surface
  • Wood pulp ensures bacteria will never get a chance to form between fabric and the skin
  • Cotton and Polyester leave moisture on the skin in humid weather without any anti-bacteria effect
  • A truly safe fabric for all skin types
  • May cause sensitivity with synthetic material

 

2. The ingredients in the serum

Unlike other products that focus on a singular skin issue, Karuna provides total 360, frustration-free skin care in every product they create. All the masks contain their "BEAUTY COMPLEX", a proprietary blend of serum which deliver hydrating, soothing, and antioxidant-rich ingredients to slow signs of aging, renew the skin and leave a youthful glow.
