Aside from an R&R session with your favorite esthetician, there’s nothing like using an at-home mask to detoxify your skin and deep clean your pores whenever your skin starts to feel dull and stressed. But for those of us with sensitive skin, the challenge is to decongest without leaving skin feeling tight, dry, itchy or red. A mask should also do more than purify; it should deliver a concentrated boost of skin-rejuvenating nutrients and hydration for a healthy glow. Without this soothing, comforting element, using a detox mask may feel like it’s stripping your skin barrier along excess oil, dirt, and toxins.
Our PURITY Marine | Mineral Detox Mask was formulated to answer the sensitivity problem with detox masks. It features a moisture-rich complex of three organic seaweeds (Irish Moss, Bladderwrack, and Kelp) to quench dry skin and restore its vitality. Because of the super hydrating, cooling, and protective potency of the seaweed trio, delicate skin isn’t compromised or over-stimulated—it stays perfectly balanced and calm. PURITY also includes Dead Sea Salt to re-mineralize skin and boost micro-circulation. Antioxidant-rich Green Tea, Gotu Kola, and Spirulina help neutralize free radical activity that causes the visible signs of aging, while Kaolin and Sea Clays gently clarify, exfoliate, and balance oil production, the goal of every detox mask.
Customize Your PURITY Mask to Deliver Maximum Results
PURITY comes in powder form, which you mix with liquid or gel to activate the cleansing and hydrating ingredients. This gives you unlimited options to customize your mask depending on what your skin needs at that moment. Whether your skin is feeling especially congested or you’ve enjoyed a decadent weekend that’s left your complexion dull and depleted. You can alchemize your own skin solution by mixing your PURITY mask with ingredients you may already have in your kitchen pantry or ones readily available from beauty retailers.
All you need to do is combine 1 teaspoon of the powder mask with 2.5 teaspoons of any the below additives. Mix thoroughly into a gel paste and let sit for 2-3 minutes to activate before applying to your face.
Here are our favorite add-ons to boost your detox treatment:
Aloe Vera Juice
This anti-inflammatory plant is a go-to remedy for irritated skin because of its amazing cooling, hydrating and soothing properties. Mixing it with your mask will saturate your skin with antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, vitamins (like vitamins B, C, and E) and minerals (including calcium, potassium, and magnesium).
Choose a high-quality brand, preferably organic, that’s free of additives like colors, flavorings or sugar. We recommend Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Juice.
Herbals teas add a multitude of vitamins, mineral, and phytonutrients to the skin. Here are some of our favorites for mask mixing.
Green Tea – provides a boost of powerful antioxidants to help skin harmed by environmental damage
Licorice Tea - soothes dry, inflamed, red skin
Ginger – gently warms the skin and improves micro-circulation and blood flow.
Burdock and Dandelion Roots – help to detoxify congested skin.
Simply steep an organic tea in hot water, let it cool a bit, then scoop out the amount you need for the mask. We love using tea in PURITY because we can sip on a cup while we wait for the mask to settle in. The ultimate inside-out beauty ritual.
Greek yogurt contains probiotics, which help provide skin with beneficial bacteria that are essential to dermal health. This sour morning staple is also rich in moisturizing amino acids, youth-boosting vitamins B6, B12 and C and minerals such as calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Milk fats help to hydrate, cool and soothe skin while lactic acid provides gentle exfoliating properties. This particular combo is especially great for days when your skin is flaky and dehydrated.
Choose an organic, whole milk variety.
Floral and Herbal Hydrosols
Floral or Herbal Hydrosols are a by-product of the essential oil distillation process. They possess many of the same skin loving properties of the herbs and flowers they come from.
Rosemary – Stimulating, encourages microcirculation, a powerful antioxidant, and anti-bacterial. Good for oily skin that needs to be cooled and energized.
Witch Hazel – Astringent, toning, antiseptic and possesses strong anti-inflammatory, helps to calm and sooth dermatitis good for oily/sensitive skin. (Do not confuse with ordinary drug store Witch Hazel that contains high amounts of drying alcohol).
Calendula – Anti-inflammatory, helps to soothe and calm dry, itchy, damaged skin.
