HERBAL CLAY MASK
HERBAL CLAY MASK
A deeply cleansing, stimulating, and toning mask with a boost of organic herbs, perfect for weekly detox.
A base of french green and bentonite clays, both rich in natural minerals, makes this mask great for drawing toxins and impurities out of the skin as well as minimizing the appearance of pores. Organic calendula, arnica, and white willow bark help to repair the skin and clear occasional blemishes as well as prevent future breakouts. Jojoba oil closely mimics the skin's sebum and restores moisture for a glowing complexion, and organic aloe vera packs an additional hydrating punch. Finally, a hint of bergamot essential oil adds a warm citrus and spicy floral scent that is clean and elegantly invigorating.
Suitable for all skin types, but especially great for acne-prone skin. Try combining with witch hazel or a floral hydrosol instead of water for extra benefits depending on your skin type. Also try mixing with raw or manuka honey for a gentle and enzyme-rich face scrub.
Ingredients: Bentonite clay, french green clay, zinc oxide, white willow bark*, calendula flowers*, jojoba oil*, arnica flowers*, aloe vera powder*, bergamot essential oil* (*organic)
Directions: Use once a week. To hydrate mask, mix 1 flat teaspoon dry powder with 1-1/2 teaspoons water (do not use metal vessels or utensils as it can deactivate the bentonite clay). Spread mask evenly onto face, avoiding eyes, and leave on for 15-20 minutes or until mask is completely dry. Rehydrate mask with water, then gently rinse. Follow with Daily Face Oil.
This mask is sold dry so that it can stay preservative-free; be sure to store in a dry location and scoop out with a clean, dry utensil.
Some redness may occur immediately after use due to the stimulating nature of the clays. However, if redness persists or if rash, irritation, or discomfort develops, discontinue use immediately. As always, if you are pregnant or nursing, please consult your doctor or midwife before using any product containing essential oils.
