OTHER KEY INGREDIENTS
Aloe Vera Leaf Juice – extracted from the leaves of the aloe plant, aloe has been used medicinally for thousands of years. Packed with vitamins and minerals, aloe has many benefits for the skin (is often used to help burns, etc.), but is also a natural cleansing agent and moisturizer. It is a humectant that can decrease dryness by keeping skin soft and supple. It is great for all skin types, including sensitive.
Licorice Root Extract – Licorice root has been a favorite of ours because it is a multi-tasker and wonderful for sensitive skin. It contains an active compound, glabridin which inhibits tyrosinase (an enzyme) which is responsible for making pigmentation (darkening of the skin). It is a powerful antioxidant and may help to reduce dark spots. It can also help balance oils making it fantastic for oily skin. It is great for all skin types.
Bearberry Extract – this beautiful bright red berry has wonderful antioxidant properties and can also help to brighten skin. The leaves of this plant contain alpha arbutin which helps to diminish dark spots and gives the skin a more even tone. Pairing bearberry with licorice provides double the brightening power for more beautiful looking skin.
Watermelon Extract – rich in vitamin C, naturally occurring carbohydrates and amino acids, this potent extract contains water binding properties helping to keep skin hydrated, soft and supple. It is also rich in lycopene (a phytonutrient) and beta carotene. An overall powerful antioxidant!
Hyaluronic Acid – a natural substance found most abundantly in our skin, joints and eyes. Also called hyaluronan, HA has the ability to hold 1000X its weight in water/moisture. It has superior hydrating benefits helping all skin types stay soft and supple. It can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. A must have anti-aging ingredient.
DIRECTIONS: Apply to clean slightly damp skin. Begin by using gentle upwards circular motions to activate manual exfoliation. Allow mask to remain on skin for approximately 5-20 minutes then thoroughly rinse with warm water. Always let your skin be your guide! Rinse immediately if you feel any irritation. Some tingling sensations are normal. Use 1-2X per week. Avoid the eye area.
