April is when new life begins to grow and we see small evidence of it in nature. This month’s mask was in honor of sakura- cherry blossom season in Japan. A time of hope, growth, and beauty.
The cherry has both protective and balancing properties. High in Vitamin C and an incredibly potent antioxidant. The hibiscus brings antioxidants, skin toning properties, and hydration. This mask supports your skin by bringing a full-on antioxidant boost.
Beauty in Growth
Cherry: Cherry extract is, in fact, an incredibly potent antioxidant that helps your skin defend itself against environmental aggressors whilst calming any inflammation. Plus, black cherries are rich in vitamin C, which is our favorite brightening ingredient. 'Because the cherry has protective and balancing properties, it will help to maintain skin barrier function and help to bring skin to homeostasis.'
Hibiscus: Anti-aging, Evens skin tone, Hydrating, Antioxidants. The natural acids present in Hibiscus help to purify your skin by breaking down dead skin and increasing cell turnover, they can even help to control acne breakouts
Licorice: Licorice root extract is known to contain a compound known as glycyrrhizin, which has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It is used to treat skin conditions like eczema and acne. As a rich source of antioxidants, it also offers skin lightening and anti-aging benefits.
Gotu kola: Gotu kola is a great help with cell regeneration.
Encourage collagen production, reduce scarring, and stretch marks, and increase antioxidant levels in newly formed tissue. Keeps skin cells 'tough' and boosts their resistance to sagging.
