Lime Stimulating Masque: It’s So Hot Right Now

Using a face mask once or twice a week will dramatically increase the elasticity and health of your skin!

The high amounts of concentrated vitamins and nutrient-rich ingredients in Eminence’s masques give skin added hydration and firming benefits. Our favorite masque from Eminence Organic Skincare is the Lime Stimulating Masque which leaves your complexion bright and revitalized.

This active mask contains stimulating nettle making it “hot,” and antioxidant rich lime and lemon provide a good source of vitamin C.

Thermal water provides a source of minerals, softening and nourishing the skin. Eminence’s BioComplex (a booster of antioxidants, Coenzyme Q10, and Alpha Lipoic Acid) reduce wrinkles and improve the overall appearance of the skin.

To use, emulsify a small amount of the mask with a few drops of water in your hand and apply evenly over the entire face. Allow it to dry for 5 to 10 minutes before gently scrubbing it off by using a circular motion with a lukewarm wash cloth and rinsing thoroughly with clean water.

The natural phytohormones and vitamins in the Lime Stimulating Masque will leave your skin appearing rosy with increased circulation but the redness will subside within a few hours after use, resulting in a healthy glow.

Though the Lime Stimulating Masque is not ideal for those with sensitive skin, it is recommended for mature, oily, dehydrated or problem skin conditions. Almost any skin type can use this active masque with great results.

After use, skin will appear firm, fresh and smooth and problem areas will be visibly improved. Its active ingredients assist in stimulating blood circulation, resulting in a rosy glow, making the complexion appear revitalized and more youthful.

One of our favorite ways to use the Lime Stimulating Masque is by double masking, pairing it with the Clear Skin Probiotic Masque for a ‘Fire and Ice” Facial.’

In this type of facial treatment, heat or stimulation is applied to the skin, increasing circulation and blood flow.

The warming sensation is then followed by a cooling treatment which reduces inflammation or swelling of the skin. Giving skin a workout with these two extremes causes skin to appear brighter, tighter and smoother.

First, the “hot” Lime Stimulating Masque is applied, arousing the circulatory system and encouraging cell turnover, allowing newer, younger cells to be brought to the surface.

Then the Clear Skin Probiotic Masque, with cooling ingredients like peppermint, tea tree and cucumber, is applied to gently soften the skin and reduce inflammation and redness.

Although the ‘Fire and Ice Facial’ may seem like a skincare trend, similar style treatments have been used in Hungary (from where Eminence Organic Skincare hails) for centuries with great success so why not give it a try at home?!
