What is a raw mask?
Raw masks are a combination of skin-loving dry ingredients, like clays and powders. A liquid is added only right before use, to preserve the ingredients without the need for preservatives. Adding liquids to masks makes them susceptible to mold, so store them in powdered form, and add your liquid to the amount you’re using.

Moroccan red clay:
Moroccan Red Clay has been used for centuries to beautify & refresh when used as a facial mask. Red clay has strong cleansing properties to draw excessive oils from the skin and stimulate circulation for an undeniable glow.
Bentonite clay is prized for treating skin conditions, as it’s known to remove impurities and toxins on the skin.
Camu camu is high in both vitamin C and niacin, and has incredible effects on skin cells, and is well known for it’s ability to remove sun damage or discolouration left behind by acne will fade over time.
Rose hips are a great anti aging remedy as it’s high in vitamin A.The extract is packed with with molecules that are small enough to penetrate deep layers of the skin, improving moisture and collagen levels, while reducing wrinkles and fine lines.
Rose has a variety of vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals and its oil are fantastic for tackling dry skin. It also offers astringent properties, making it an excellent combatant of acne, redness, and inflammation.

Mix 1.5 tsp of raw mask with 1.5 tsp of rosewater to form a smooth paste. Apply to cleansed, dry skin and let set until dry. Rinse with warm water and cloth. It is normal for this mask to cause rosey cheeks after rinsing.
Ultra-Boost Tip |
Raw masks can be customized to suit your specific skin needs. Try replacing water with skin-boosting apple cider vinegar, which contains alpha hydroxy acids & is high in vitamin C. For additional healing and beautifying properties, add a drop of your favorite essential oil (I love rose, blue tansy and neroli) of course you will want to add a carrier oil to dilute if you choose to add a drop of your favorite essential oil.
