In the first quarter of the new year, many of us try to adopt new habits and make changes to our lifestyle. Maybe you’re looking to take care of your health a little more, ask for that raise, or pick up a good habit. Why not also think about doing a cleanse for your skin? I am a full supporter of a quality skin detox, especially when it is facilitated by Hard Night Good Morning’s Detox Mineral Masque.
The Detox Mineral Masque’s unique formula was updated in 2018 to be even more luxurious, detoxifying, and beneficial than before. One new ingredient, Beraclay Dark Red, helps to prevent dryness and preserve elasticity in the skin. This unique clay originates in South America where it begins to form high in the Andes mountains, collecting minerals all the way down to the Amazon. It is then collected by the natives and sold as an income source. There are several minerals gathered in the clay, and they each present as a different color, with their own unique property. We have found the natural dark red to be most effective in anti-aging and firmness.
Grape Seed Oil, another new ingredient in this formula, can help even out skin tone, prevent acne, and make your skin softer. Other key ingredients include Mala'Kite™, which helps detox the skin and protect against pollution, and Sea Salt, which helps to exfoliate, rejuvenate, and calm irritation. This masque also contains many fruit extracts, including those derived from oranges, lemons, apples, acai, and dragon fruit.
This Brazilian clay-based formula was designed with everyone in mind. It’s great for those with dry, oily, normal, or acne-prone skin, however, if your skin tends to be on the sensitive side, the deep cleansing effect of this masque may irritate your skin type a little more. I recommend using this masque when you’re having a staycation weekend at home, rather than the same day as a big event or somewhere your photo will be taken, as it may leave your skin a little red.
One of my favorite things about this masque is its ability to draw out dirt, impurities, and pore-clogging oil. These benefits are especially important during the wintertime when we have been wearing heavier makeup and exposing our skin to drier air. You know your skin best, so when you can feel it is suffering, grab this masque. It will deep clean your pores, which in turn will help your skin look more luminous and healthy.
The Detox Mineral Masque also helps to strengthen the outer layer of the skin, the epidermis, which tends to get hit the hardest when it comes to environmental factors damaging the skin. Keeping this layer of the skin strong can result in a more youthful appearance.
Using this masque once a week for 15-30 minutes can also help to repair oxidative damage, improve unevenness in skin tone, and supports metabolic functioning, which is related to growth and repair. Either brush it on or apply it with your clean fingertips to give your face the detox it deserves. For best results, carefully remove the masque with warm water and a microfiber cloth without pulling the skin.
