And most important of all, have a exceptional time at our sanctuary!
The theme I chose for our night together is detoxing your skin from impurities with Charcoal mask!
Charcoal seems like an odd thing to put on your face, right? When I think campfires, I don’t exactly jump to clean. However, when sustainable bamboo is burned in a controlled way, it is oxidized which creates a highly porous surface. This allows the bamboo charcoal to absorb things like toxins from your face, while the consistency of the mask won’t let them soak back into your skin. It also helps tightens pores and reduces inflammation, making skin look smoother and cleaner. Bamboo charcoal is naturally antibacterial, antiviral, and antimicrobial; as such it has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries.

Lycopene is the pigment that gives tomatoes their red color. It is a carotene similar to beta-carotene, it is a potent antioxidant being 10 times more efficient than Vitamin E.

Pomegranate Seed Oil reduces the appearance of wrinkles, improves skin elasticity, lightens acne scars with continued use, high in antioxidants, helps produce elastin and collagen.
Clean Clay masque This detoxifying masque pulls excess dirt and oil from the skin, leaving it feeling smooth, tight, and toned. The pure plant-based ingredients in this powerful clay masque work with minerals and enzymes to leave your skin nourished and rejuvenated.
If you have any allergies please let me know in advance so that I can make necessary adjustments to the food and masque.
