Invite a subtle polish + revitalized glow

2 fl oz / 60 ml

A facial mask loaded with finely ground herbs, unpasteurized local honey and flower essences. Swirled together for an exfoliating mask that leaves the skin smooth and deeply nourished. Safe for sensitive skin.

I crafted this mask at the request of a lovely + local facial reflexologist who wanted a spirulina + honey based mask to use in her practice. Not satisfied with just spirulina, I tested several herbal combinations until this one hit the spot and left my ultra-sensitive skin radiant and nourished. 


BOTANICALS

Spirulina is a blue-green algae that is rich in nutrients, lipids and vitamins along with various minerals including iron, zinc, magnesium and potassium. It can help protect and firm the skin, fighting off free radicals and improving overall appearance through detoxification and boosting collagen production. It's been used to aid in the reduction of acne and boost cellular repair while preventing bacterial overgrowth and preventing moisture loss. 

Matcha has long been used to boost energy and improve health while being considered ceremonial. It has been shown to soothe inflammation with its extremely rich concentration of anti-oxidants and may soothe acne, eczema and rashes. It's used topically to prevent premature aging due in part to the caffein content which can energize the skin and promote firmness overtime. The polyphenols in Matcha have been confirmed to help protect the skin from the damaging effects of UV rays and pollution. 

Gotu Kola contains a potent combination of amino acids, beta carotene, fatty acids and phytochemicals which make it useful in fighting the signs of aging and protecting the skin from environmental stressors. It has a long history of use topically for promoting skin firmness and smoothing wrinkles. It has been shown to boost the formation of collagen and skin cell regeneration which may help in reducing scars, blemishes and broken capillaries. 

Colloidal Oatmeal is highly nourishing both internally and externally. It soothes inflamed skin and helps to hydrate dry skin with its minerals and mucilage. It also exfoliates beautifully without stripping or irritating the skin. 

French Green Clay is sourced from marine waters and is high in vitamins and minerals. It's wonderful at deep cleansing the pores and removing excess oils while also being hydrating and safe for sensitive skin. 

Raw Honey is loaded with natural enzymes, antioxidants, and minerals and has been used in first aid and beauty treatments for centuries. 

Magnesium Oil is used in the treatment of acne and premature aging of the skin. It may help in reducing skin oiliness, fighting free radicals and evening skin tone. 

Flower Essences to promote a healthy inflammatory response, soften liver stagnation (skin issues), open the heart and increase courage and confidence while building healthy boundaries.
