Although this mask contains many beneficial ingredients, the two superstars are organic turmeric powder and manuka honey extract. Here's a quick breakdown, but there's a plethora of information online if you'd like to dig deeper!
Turmeric is definitely trending in the industry right now, and understandably so. Although turmeric masks have been used for years, the recent spike in popularity is due to some recent studies confirming what ancient cultures knew long ago: this spice is "skincare gold"! Below is a list of benefits you can expect with regular topical use of turmeric:
Reduction in dark spots (hyperpigmentation)
Reduction in acne (due to it's antibacterial & anti-inflammatory action)
Brighter, more even skin tone
Reduced appearance of fine lines
Improvement in skin conditions such as dermatitis and eczema
Most people are familiar with the benefits of honey in skincare, but manuka honey is definitely the "mercedes" of all honeys! Produced by bees that feed on the nectar of manuka tree flowers in Australia and New Zealand, manuka honey contains potent (and highly beneficial) components for use in skincare. Below is a list of benefits you can expect with regular topical use of manuka honey:
Wound healing (the honey "recruits" fibroblasts, which are the cells needed to help wounds heal).
Improvement in inflammatory skin conditions
Protection against damaging free radicals
Increased skin hydration (due to it's natural humectant properties)
The turmeric and manuka honey extract are nestled into a creamy blend of four different earth-derived clays, each with their own amazing properties. Below are a few of the many benefits you can expect to experience with the regular use of clay masks:
Apply to face (or any other areas on the body you'd like to treat). Leave on until the mask has fully dried (about 15-20 minutes). Rinse with warm water, then pat dry. Skin may appear slightly golden due to the pigments in the turmeric. Some users love this effect, but you can easily wipe it off with warm water and a washcloth if you'd prefer. We recommended reserving a special washcloth for this purpose, due to the yellow staining that often occurs.
May be used once weekly, or more often if needed.
