Activated Purifying Mask with Charcoal & Flowers
Nominated for Refinery 29's 2016 Best in Beauty Innovator Awards
This mask is handcrafted with a blend of clays, activated charcoal and organic flowers to decongest the pores, clarify the complexion, and nourish the skin. Activated charcoal and French green clay pull out impurities and deliver nutrients to optimize skin barrier function. Hibiscus, willow bark and sugar extract gently exfoliate and deliver antioxidants. Rose and chamomile beautify and calm irritations. Use this mask on a weekly basis to detoxify and decongest the pores while simultaneously soothing and nourishing the skin for a clarified complexion.
Directions: Mix a small amount of the mask (about ½ a tbsp.) with about ½ tsp of water, milk, and hydrosol, one of our toners or herbal tea until you create a thick paste. Add more liquid if necessary. It is recommended to start with less liquid than you think you need, and then add more as needed. Apply paste to clean face and let dry (10-15 minutes). Remove by rinsing with warm water. Follow by cleansing the skin with one of our toners and a cotton pad. Finish with a facial oil or balm. For best results, use after an herbal steam.
For dry skin: Try mixing with honey, milk, rose water, rose/chamomile tea or our Rose Hydrating Toner
For combination/oily skin: Try mixing with honey, green tea, diluted apple cider vinegar, witch hazel hydrosol, orange blossom water, or our Neroli Clarifying Toner.
