The Organic Cellular Repair Mask for Sun-Damaged Skin

The Organic Cellular Repair Mask is perfect for repairing sun-damaged skin and brightening the complexion. This mask is rich in antioxidants and vitamins from ingredients like Maqui Berry, Pomegranate and Black Chokeberry which help restore and renew the skin. Supplemented with the skin brightening raw extract of Vaccinium Uliginosum berry, this explosion of sheer fruit power helps to stimulate regeneration on a cellular level.

To ensure the potency of the Organic Cellular Repair Mask, it is essential that it remains moist during application. Trish Alkaitis recommends mixing one teaspoon of the Cellular Repair Mask with one teaspoon of plain yogurt (organic coconut probiotic yogurt is preferred) and one teaspoon of organic raw honey for optimal results. This mixture helps maintain moisture and enhances the mask's benefits. Yogurt's probiotics and enzymes soothe and heal red, inflamed skin, while honey adds extra hydration and rejuvenation. It is important to note that this mask may also be mixed with water, however, in this case, it is essential to prevent the mask from drying on the skin.

Instructions for using the Cellular Repair Mask:

  • Preparation: After cleansing with our Organic Purifying Cleanser, soften your skin by placing a damp, warm towel on your face for several minutes.
  • Mixing: Combine one teaspoon of the Organic Cellular Repair Mask with one teaspoon of coconut yogurt and one teaspoon of honey to form a thin paste.
  • Application: Using clean fingertips, apply the mask to your face and neck, avoiding the delicate eye area.
  • Moisture Maintenance: Ensure the mask stays moist throughout the application by misting your face with water if needed.
  • Duration: Leave the mask on for 10 to 20 minutes.
  • Removal: Remove the mask gently with a soft cloth dampened in lukewarm water.

We recommend using a non-nano technology zinc oxide sunscreen if you must wear a sunscreen, and make sure it’s free of Titanium Dioxide. Eat a healthy diet high in antioxidants.

Good skin care requires a healthy eating habit first and foremost. A diet rich in vitamins A, C, and B-complex, for example, foods like brown rice, beans and lentils, organic vegetables, and fruits. Avoid white sugar and food prepared with white flour and deep-fried fats. Cold-pressed certified organic oils and butter are recommended. Daily exercise and fresh air are essential.

These 4 supplements may be highly beneficial when in the sun:

  • SOD (SUPRER OXIDE DISMUTASE) - a powerful enzyme, excellent for reducing inflammation and minimizing free radical damage.
  • ASTHAXANTHIN – a powerful antioxidant.
  • Beta Carotene - the orange part of carrots. Eat lots of them!

Embrace the summer with confidence, knowing your skin is protected and nourished with the best organic ingredients.
