What makes our mask purify, resurface and recharge your skin?
Kaolin & Bentonite Clays
Kaolin clay, also known as white clay, is a type of soft, fine-grained earth. It helps to absorb oil and impurities from the skin. The adsorption qualities of kaolin clay draw out toxins and built up oil from your pores to leave your complexion looking smoother and clearer.
Bentonite clay has similar adsorption qualities as kaolin but has less oil absorbing power - it only removes about 80% of sebum (the oily substance in your skin). Still, this makes bentonite clay an ideal ingredient for those who have oily or combination skin since its sole purpose is to pull out dirt and grime without dehydrating the face like some other products do.
AHA Glycolic Acid & BHA Salicylic Acid
Acids are a necessary part of your skin's natural exfoliation process. Additionally, they can help to reduce excess oil, unclog pores and minimize the appearance of dark spots and blemishes. The Clarify & Brighten Face Mask uses a combination of AHA’s and a BHA acid that work harmoniously to instantly brighten your complexion: AHA glycolic acid (derived from sugarcane) and BHA salicylic acid (derived from willow bark).
Benefits of these include:
🖤Gently resurfaces skin with no irritation or dryness
🖤Stimulates cell growth by removing dead skin cells
🖤 Helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles
Sulfur is a natural skin detoxifier, as well as an anti-inflammatory agent. It helps to clear up acne and reduce redness by promoting cell turnover, which helps to remove dead skin cells that can clog pores. Sulfur also has antibacterial properties that fight off the acne-causing bacteria. As an added bonus, sulfur’s blemish-fighting properties also help to clear up blackheads and whiteheads, as well as other blemishes on your face!What does this mean for your Clarify & Brighten Face Mask? It means that when you use our mask (which contains 3% sulfur), you’re getting all of these benefits in one easy step.
ZincZinc is an essential trace mineral that plays a key role in the synthesis of collagen, elastin and keratin. Zinc also helps with wound healing, immune function, making it a great aid in healing irritated and sensitized skin.
Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3. It’s also known as nicotinamide and nicotinic acid, but the name most commonly used is niacinamide. Niacinamide works to moisturize, brighten and even out skin tone by increasing elasticity, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It helps to reduce inflammation caused by acne breakouts while soothing inflammation around the eyes, mouth, or nose area due to rosacea or eczema flare-ups. What makes niacinamide especially effective in treating acne-prone skin types is that it inhibits sebum production (sebum being an oily substance that clogs pores).
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps to brighten the skin. It reduces fine lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen production, which keeps your skin firm and smooth. Vitamin C also works to reduce hyperpigmentation (dark spots or discoloration on your skin) by lightening dark areas of the face. The Clarify & Brighten Face Mask contains vitamin C, as well as licorice extract, which helps to detoxify and protect against free radical damage in the skin.
Also referred to as the “Crystal Queen of Calmness”, Amethyst is known for it’s therapeutic, purifying, regenerating and healing energy. It's also thought to have positive effects on the skin, particularly when it comes to reducing inflammation and healing wounds.
The power of amethyst lies in its structure: it has a hexagonal crystal latticework that transmits light energy very efficiently, which means energy from the sun can be transmitted through amethyst crystals into your body during meditation or sleep. Amethyst crystals are also said to promote spiritual growth while helping you achieve higher states of consciousness.
These potent ingredients, working harmoniously together, is what creates the beautiful real results experienced when using this mask. Your skin will be glowing, purified, resurfaced and feel recharged. It’s easy to use at home or on the go; just apply it once or twice a week for best results.
