Mix a small amount of the powder in the pam of your hand or a small dish. Activate by mixing the mask powder with water or with, Anti Inflammatory Toner, or Soothing Toner (Breanna's favorite method) to form a paste. Apply a thin layer of the light blue green mask to your cleansed skin and allow to dry. Drying time depends on the thickness of the mask. The thinner the past, the less drying time & the lighter the treatment. The thicker the past, the longer it will take to dry, and more detoxification, purification, and firming will take place. Rinse well with water. Complete your treatment by wiping your skin with Anti Inflammatory Toner or Soothing Toner, follow with 1-2 pumps of Liquid Hydration, then proceed with your skin care regimen.
Can be used 1-7 times per week. May be applied all over, as a spot treatment, or in combination with another mask (multi-masking) to contour your treatment to the specific needs of each area of your skin

It's a derivative of the B vitamin choline. Some people have called this ingredient "facelift in a bottle" which is a pretty fantastic claim, I prefer to think of it as a temporary skin lifter, rather than a "too good to be true" quick fix. Although, over time with consistent use many of my clients have been pleased & feel like their skin looks more firm & lifted. it's akin calming effect is an added bonus as well.
MSM is short for methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) and is basically sulfur and it is in our bodies, as well as in some plants. It has the ability to enhance collagen bundles and keratin (the building blocks of healthy hairs, skin, and nails). It helps skin cells to become more permeable which helps them absorb other nutrients (like the nourishing blue green algae, DMAE< & vitamin C in this mask). It has been know to calm redness, and even out pigmentation in the skin, contributing to a greater overall brightness.
"Algae? Sounds gross! Why would I put it on my skin?"
While the thought of putting pond scum on your skin may initially sound revolting, once you learn of blue green algae's benefits you'll change your mind. (Also, keep in mind, for skin care purposes blue green algae is processed for the utmost purity).
Many of us have put spirulina a form of edible blue green algae in our smoothies because it's so high in protein, amino acids, and extra essential fatty acids. Our skin loves these things too! When applied topically & in the proper form the blue green algae feeds, nourishes, and ahas a firming affect on the skin. It's great for sensitive skin types, and has showing hat it can increase our skin's hydration levels. Try it, your skin will love it!
