The potent ingredients in the SOMA Mask boost collagen and give a youthful glow to dull skin while improving elasticity and suppleness and speeding the repair of dry patches, blemishes, acne, rosacea and eczema. The basis of this mask is skin loving raw honey. It is full of phytonutrients antioxidants, enzymes, and minerals, all of which repair and maintain the natural radiance of our skin. Raw honey's antibacterial properties clarify the pores and ward off bad bacteria, fungus and viruses. A touch of beeswax acts as a humectant drawing moisture to the skin for rehydration.
*We highly recommend mixing SOMA with our dry clay masks for added moisture, skin soothing benefits and for a less drying effect from the clay.
*Tip: Use overnight to boost skin repair while you sleep.
Royal Jelly: a gelatinous secretion that worker bees feed to their queen. It's acids increase the speed of collagen production and cell regeneration. Royal Jelly contains nutrients that support skin renewal: B-complex, minerals, enzymes, zinc. It is also anti-inflammatory making it good for reduction of skin irregularities such as rosacea, eczema, dermatitis, and acne.
Propolis: powerful wound healer, antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-viral that has been found to inhibit many forms of cancer including skin cancer by Dr. Seema Patel of the Bioinformatics and Medical Informatics Research Center, San Diego State University. It is a resinous mixture that honey bees collect from tree buds, sap flows, or other botanical sources. In the hive, it’s being used to both seal the Bee Larva chambers and as a natural disinfector, this is why it is very effective for fighting acne. Recent research also suggest that it may be effective in speeding the healing and reducing the symptoms of cold sores.
Argan oil: a quick absorbing oil that makes the skin softer and more supple, balances oily skin, moisturizes dry skin, and speeds the healing of acne and acne-related scarring, UV damage (aka sun spots), and dry leathery skin from over-exposure to sun. It is non-comedogenic and will not clog pores. The saponins in argan oil reactivate skin cells ability to regenerate.
Raw honey also contains gluconic acid, a mild alpha hydroxy acid that brightens the complexion. It is a humectant helping to naturally draw moisture to the skin restoring and maintaining skin structure. It has more naturally-occurring antioxidants than almost any other botanically/natural derived source meaning that it slows the signs of aging.
This mask is meant to be blended. Combine 1/2 tsp of mask with just enough water to create a thick soup, then apply a thin layer to freshly cleansed damp skin (using a brush is recommended). Rest with legs up for 20-30 minutes or longer. For a dose of extra healing and hydrating power, leave on overnight. (Cover your pillow with a towel.) Remove with a warm wash cloth. Follow with the IMMORTAL Oil, Serum and balm.
