"In Ayurvedic tradition, the earthy, yellow root turmeric was known as the Golden Goddess of medicinal herbs, for its vivid color and dramatic healing abilities. Ayurvedic doctors dispensed it liberally to members of the royal family who suffered from blemishes and impurities in their skin. With Uma Deeply Clarifying Face Mask, we’ve recreated the holistic face packs that helped the women of ancient India maintain their naturally flawless complexions, by gently disinfecting the skin and restoring its delicate balance of moisture and nutrition."
This powerful clarifying mask is as gentle as it is potent – it draws out impurities from deep within the pores, while soothing the skin and minimizing visible signs of irritation. While detoxifying skin instantly, this legendary formula promotes the skin’s natural turnover and cleansing functions, providing benefits for days after use!
Natural antibacterial agents like turmeric, clove and neem destroy acne-causing bacteria on the surface of the skin, while astringent botanicals dramatically tighten pores.
Fuller’s earth, honey and lemon regulate skin’s natural oil production functions to prevent future breakouts and eliminate blackheads.
Orange peel and cinnamon stimulate cellular regeneration to fade acne scarring, while nourishing botanicals like natural camphor and mint minimize inflammation.
This potent mask works at the surface and sub-dermal layers of the skin to minimize the appearance of existing acne and eliminate the impurities and bacteria that cause it. It is appropriate for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Note: To keep this mask 100% organic and preservative free, we use a unique formulation mechanism to keep it moist over time and continued use. The aloe vera combines with the oils and ingredients to release the moisture. Sometimes if a package has been shaken around by the carrier, it can produce extra moisture and result in some seepage. While your mask remains perfectly safe and effective, that can give the appearance of an “oil” leak – when it’s actually just moisture seepage. Water can be safely be added to the mask if it feels dry. The unique formulation and ingredients also make the mask untraditional in how it spreads on the skin when applied, feeling more ‘grainy’ than regular masks. However, we encourage you to trust the results this incredible formula creates!
After cleansing, apply a thin layer to wet, clean face and neck with fingertips in circular motions. The mask will spread more readily on wet face; water can also be added to mask for easier application. Leave the mask on for 7 minutes or as long as you desire. Remove with warm washcloth or warm water. Finish with a cold water rinse.
This mask is made without water so that synthetic preservatives are not needed (which are not good for your skin!). For best results you can either -
add water to the pot and leave it overnight (how much depends on how much mask you have left and how dry it is - typically a few teaspoons); then leave for about a day, and it’ll balance out to a creamy texture. The mask will stay good for 6 months after adding water to it (since it does have natural preservatives in it).
or....you can scoop out what you want to use in a small Tupperware or bowl with a cover and add a bit of water to it to use the next day.
