Beet powder is extremely rich in iron, potassium, niacin, copper, vitamin A, vitamin C, folic acid, biotin, niacin, zinc, phosphorus, sodium, calcium, manganese and magnesium. Beets provide a natural source of phosphate and copper, which are necessary for the skin to stretch.
Topical application of Niacinamide, commonly known as vitamin B3, has been shown to increase ceramide and free fatty acid levels in skin and to prevent skin from losing water content. It will decrease itching & inflammation, decrease oiliness, alleviate atopic dermatitis, help heal acne-stricken skin, decrease UV-induced skin cancers and help decrease facial pigmentation.
Vitamin B5 improves the moisture-retention capacity of the skin and stimulates skin regeneration. Dry skin fortified with vitamin B5 stays supple and elastic for longer than it would, otherwise. It also lends an anti-inflammatory, anti-itching effect.
Ascorbyl Palmitate, a form of vitamin C, is found naturally in fruits & green vegetables and is an essential part of normal metabolism, wound healing, and tissue repair. Solubility enables this form of vitamin C to reach the surface of the skin rapidly in amounts greater than can be achieved by water-soluble vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid), therefore providing a readily available form of vitamin C to skin. Can be used by individuals who have normally sensitive skin.
Directions: This fabulous mask comes packed with its own set of nutrient-rich properties that are designed to work with the liquid chosen to activate the mask. The mask can be used 2 parts powder to 1 part any liquid suitable for hydrating the mask. A thinner mask can be made by adding more liquid, and a thicker mask can be created with less liquid. Powder masks are designed for immediate use after hydration. The liquid you use is only limited by your imagination (within safe guidelines). Try hydrating your masque with water or yogurt. NOTE: Never add liquids or other things to the jar. Remove a small amount of powder from the jar to a small dish and gradually add water or yogurt until you reach the desired consistency. You want the mask to be thin enough to spread over your face but not so thin that it is dripping or too diluted. Leave on until it dries completely and then rinse off with warm water. Follow with cleansing and toning and the remaining steps of the skin care regime.
