We recently celebrated the summer solstice and now we're immersed in the magic of summer. From the magnificent sun that bathes us in warmth to the chorus of birds, nature is ALIVE and BLOOMING.
Summer is the season to enjoy being outdoors, connect with nature, calm our minds and fill our lungs with fresh air. While we're outside it’s almost impossible not to notice the flowers gracing us with their vibrant beauty and divine fragrance. Flowers are truly a symbol Summer!
Along with summer and the change of seasons comes a necessary change in our skincare routine. A question I often get asked is whether it's beneficial to exfoliate in the summer months. My answer is yes, but GENTLY! Summer is not the time for strong exfoliation. If you over exfoliate, your skin will be prone to burning in the sun and more susceptible to hyperpigmentation. For a healthy, glowing summer complexion we need to choose slow and gentle methods of exfoliation to encourage cell turnover. The Dr. Alkaitis Organic Flower Mask provides the perfect amount of exfoliation for the summer months.
KEY BENEFITS OF THE ORGANIC FLOWER MASK
- Restores, balances and visibly improves skin quality.
- Effective beauty-enhancing mask for skin that lacks vitality or skin with enlarged pores.
- Gently exfoliates, revealing youthful looking skin.
- Stimulates circulation for a rosy, healthy skin.
HOW TO USE THE ORGANIC FLOWER MASK
Apply the following steps to use Dr. Alkaitis's Flower Mask:
Add a teaspoon of Flower Mask to the palm of your hand.
Blend it with approximately 1 tsp of purified water to form a smooth paste that would be the consistency of smooth yogurt. You may also use raw, organic honey instead of water.
Apply the mixture to damp, freshly cleansed skin using your fingertips or a soft facial brush.
Let the Flower Mask sit on the skin and work its magic for 10 to 15 minutes then rinse thoroughly. The mask must remain moist for the duration of the treatment, except for very oily skin which can benefit from allowing the mask to dry.
After thoroughly rinsing the Flower Mask I highly recommend applying either the Dr. Alkaitis Herbal Toner or Organic Soothing Gel followed by the Dr. Alkaitis Ageless Elixir or Organic Nourishing Treatment Oil and the Organic Day Crème or Organic Night Crème.
*Note: This is an active mask and not recommended for those who have active acne breakouts or highly sensitive skin.
A GENTLE SUMMER EXFOLIATING SCRUB
The Organic Flower Mask may be mixed as a gommage and used as a gentle weekly exfoliator. To do this we create a thicker paste by mixing the Flower Mask with a touch of water and two pumps of Nourishing Treatment Oil. This treatment is great for more congested skin. It smells wonderful and will leave you with a radiant and healthy complexion.
