End your search for the ultimate detoxifying mask – thanks to the Sukin Super Greens Detoxifying Masque, it’s never been easier to get a glowing complexion. You’re welcome.
The natural Australian beauty brand aims to boost skin with this delicious smelling clay mask. Part of Sukin’s Super Greens range, it uses vitamin-rich green vegetable extracts to draw out skin impurities and refresh skin.
After a long week, your skin can feel clogged if you’ve applied various lotions and potions or if you’ve been busy perfecting your contouring. Perhaps you’re tired of battling with an oily/combination skin type and want to eliminate excess oil.
But where to start? An easy way to clear your skin is by using a clay mask. Clay masks work by absorbing oil and drawing toxins from your face. They help tackle a wide range of common skin problems such as acne, redness, oily skin or congested pores. To see the real benefits, it’s important to regularly use a clay mask, usually once a week will do.
Depending on how congested my skin feels, I try to use this mask at least once a week. Before applying it, I make sure my skin is clean with the Neogen Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Oil and the Blueberry Real Fresh Foaming Cleanser from Neogen.
I splash water on my face and use a flat brush to apply a thick layer to my neck and face, avoiding my eyes. I apply more product to my nose and chin to help tackle blocked pores around both areas.
This feels soothing on my skin and immediately cools it. Particularly helpful for gals with rosacea who know only too well the burning or stinging sensations associated with skin condition. This pulls any heat from my face.
I leave it on for 15 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water. I love how clear and clean my skin is with the Sukin Detoxifying Clay Masque. Stubborn pores are less noticeable, hurrah! Redness across my nose and cheeks is reduced, making it the best detox mask for sensitive skin.
Clay masks pull impurities from the skin, so it’s common for skin to feel dry after applying one but although my face is a little dry with this, I’m not bothered. I’m more impressed at how quickly this helps soothe my rosacea while thoroughly cleaning my skin. Whenever I use this, I apply one of favourite sheet masks afterwards to inject extra moisture into my skin.
The Super Greens Detoxifying Masque is packed with an impressive cocktail of kale, parsley, chlorella and spirulina. Because they’re full of vitamins and minerals, fibre and phytonutrients, these ingredients are commonly hailed as ‘super greens’.
The blend of antioxidant-rich kale, parsley, chlorella and spirulina packs a punch. Kale is full of vitamin K to tighten skin and vitamin A to help protect skin. Irritated or inflamed skin is calmed with parsley extracts, which also balance oil levels in the skin. Chlorella is a key ingredient to tackle redness and rosacea and spirulina is filled with a combination of vitamin A, B-12 and E to promote an enviable chok chok glow.
The Kaolin and bentonite clay types eliminate oil and act as a mild exfoliant for even the most sensitive skin. They reduce inflammation and shrink pores, too. In addition, kaolin and bentonite remove dry skin cells to make skin softer.
Known for its antioxidant properties, avocado oil nourishes the skin with vitamins A and C, which both play an important role in protecting skin against the ageing process. Other ingredients include rose hip, which according to Healthline contains more vitamin C that oranges. Vitamin C is also vital for boosting levels of collagen in the skin so with this mask, you’re guaranteed to get firmer skin in as little as 15 minutes. Result!
This clay mask is perfect for rosacea symptoms like flushing, redness, stinging and burning. I love it so much, I’ve already bought another pot!
