Health and wellness experts have dubbed the crimson berry a “superfood” and in the last couple of years the Goji berry has become a huge trend in Europe and North America. The truth is that the Goji berry (also known as the Wolfberry) is no newcomer as it has been consumed in Tibet and China for many years.
In addition to its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal properties they are also packed with vitamins and antioxidants and the experts claim that the only other substance richer in nutrients is bee pollen and Phytoplankton! Which is pretty impressive!
Of course, knowing what we know about our friend, the Goji Berry, we have formulated a facial mask that harnesses the amazing qualities of this super food. Aren’t we just amazing? ;]
What are antioxidants and how does it benefit me?
Antioxidants are tiny “free-radical-fighting superheroes” and they come in many different forms, Vitamin C being the most common. Free radicals are little monster molecules that can deform our cells, even destroy them. Even though our bodies are able to handle its fair share of free radicals we need antioxidants to help with the everyday fight against the harmful molecules all around us. When absorbed into the body regularly, antioxidants fight against free radical damage and can even reverse existing damage (ageing) leaving you with healthy cells and a younger looking skin!
Including a healthy dose of antioxidants in your diet (fruit, veggies and herbal teas for example) also helps to flush the body of free radicals and prevents degenerative, age-related diseases such as heart disease and cancer.
Absorbed into your body?
Many people don’t know that what they apply onto the skin gets absorbed into the body, but think about this: a hormone patch is put onto the skin and releases hormones which gets absorbed into the body through the skin. Taking this into consideration, you’ll probably think twice about what you put onto your skin from now on.
You don’t need to think twice about our amazing Goji Berry Facial Mask. It also contains Shea, Mango Butter, Green Tea, Honey, Glycerine & Essentials Oils which are all 100% natural and excellent for rejuvenating and moisturizing damaged skin. Think of it as a Goji berry skin smoothie … *slurp*.
How do I use the facial mask?
The purpose of this mask is not to go dry and flaky on your skin; it’s about soaking goodness into your skin. Apply a generous amount onto clean skin and enjoy watching your face going an orange shade over the following 15 minutes. Rinse off, pat dry and enjoy softer, more radiant skin.
Have some time on your hands?
Steam your face for 5 minutes prior to application of the mask. It will open up and clean the pores so that absorption of the goodness in the mask is maximized. Try our Botanicals Facial Steam Elixir. Add few drops in the steaming water will do wonders for the skin. Pat dry and apply the Goji Berry Facial Mask.
Now, sit back and enjoy your new skin.
