Why I can’t live without my weekly replenish face mask!

Sunday night 7pm is like the triple white chocolate, raspberry and Nutella éclair of my week – sheer luxury and ultimate decadence!  I like to think of my week as a big beautiful buffet, and 7pm Sunday night as my dedicated dessert section – my time to totally replenish myself!

The clock strikes seven and the outside world slips away. I massage a large tablespoon of Hair and Scalp Elixir through my hair, wrap it up in a warm towel, let my incense burn, smooth on a creamy, indulgent Replenish Face Mask and put my feet up while I tuck into a good book & block of Fairtrade, organic Pico Chocolate (yum!).

I recently decided to schedule face masks in as part of my new commitment to really taking care of myself. And I’m so glad I did! Lathering on a 15 minute mask is simple and infuses mind, body & soul with a bliss I thought was only possible from a week-long Bali goddess spa retreat.

After experiencing first-hand the amazingness of face masks, I did some research to find out how it is they leave your skin feeling so toned and restored…

The skin-loving benefits of masks…

Our skin endures a lot, and sometimes it takes more than a standard cleansing routine to counteract it all. This is where masks come in. By drawing out impurities hidden beneath the top layer of your dermis, they take your cleansing routine to a whole new level. And after clearing out the bad, they deliver a wealth of nourishing goodness.

When using a mask, your complexion is blanketed in a world of healing actives, extracts & phytonutrients for up to 20 minutes! This means your skin has a chance to soak in all the moisture. Furthermore, the natural luscious botanicals and pure essential oils are better able to penetrate the skin and convey their potent healing properties right into the deepest layers of the dermis to provide maximum therapeutic effect.

The result of all this is improved hydration and a noticeably luminous glow and soft radiance that comes from true, natural nourishment.

The icing on this big ol’ nourishment cake is that masks don’t just love your skin. True masks are infused with pure, aromatic essential oils. So while your skin drinks in all the love and nutrition, your spirits are also replenished and uplifted by the beautiully healing qualities of aromatherapy.

Of course there’s a bit more to it then just whipping on any old mask. The mask you use depends on your skin’s particular needs.

 

The right mask for you…

In winter, the weather can be unkind to your skin. So right now, Sal & the team are loving Replenish Face Mask. Rich & totally20160621_104514 decadent, this smooth creamy mask contains jojoba, rosehip & avocado oils, olive leaf extract, calendula, as well as rose otto and lavender essential oils to nourish dry, dehydrated and chapped weather-beaten skin, making it perfect for wintertime!

 Would your skin benefit from a weekly replenish mask? 

Take the quiz below to find out… 

  • When I wake up in the morning my skin feels dry, tight or itchy
  • My skin feels sore or tight especially after showering, bathing or swimming
  • My skin looks or feels rough
  • I am noticing more fine lines and wrinkles than normal

If you answered yes to two or more of the questions above, than a Replenish Face Mask would be perfect for you! The mask itself is wonderful for most skin types, especially in winter. However, oily or acne prone skin would be benefit more from either a Green Tea Purifying or Fresh Faced Mask.

 

How to use…

In the same way you would ice a cupcake, smooth your mask over skin that is freshly cleansed and exfoliated (this will ensure you receive maximum benefits from your mask!). Be sure to avoid the eye and lip area. Leave on for 15 to 20 minutes while you put your feet up, meditate, read or whatever you like! When it’s time to remove your mask, simply hold a warm, wet wash cloth over your face for several seconds, repeat a few times to loosen the mask from your skin. Very gently wash the rest of the mask away with your wash cloth & plenty of water. Pat your skin dry with a towel, spritz over Replenish Fine Tuning Solution and follow with a layer of Replenish Serum

…and that’s all there is to it!
