Baptize - Brightening and Resurfacing Mask
Created specifically for these skin types:
- Normal or Combination
What it does:
Baptize Resurfacing and Brightening Mask revitalizes your skin, helping to gently slough away dead skin and impurities without leaving your skin feeling tight or dry. With natural AHAs from apples, including Malic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, and Citric Acid, this lovely butter-gel mask will feel like you've just been baptized--renewing your skin just like you renew the soul.
How to Use:
Use Baptize after you have cleansed your skin with your favorite cleanser. Apply on area where most affected, avoiding the eyes and mouth area. Leave on for 10 minutes, then gently rinse off with warm water and a washcloth or fingers. Pat face dry. Use two to three times per week or as needed.
For first time acid users and those with super sensitive skin, work your way up to using masks that contain natural exfoliants. Leave on for no more than 5 minutes once per week. After you've built tolerance to the product, you may increase usage to twice per week and up to 10 minutes.
Why you need it:
Baptize is especially made for the dry, colder month. Infused with African Mafura butter to reduce excess drying from the white kaolin clay that's also integrated in this lovely formula, Baptize helps those with drier and sensitive skin keep up with a weekly exfoliating regimen that's both enriching and nourishing at the same time, without causing sensitization, flare-ups, excess drying/dry spots, or flaking.
Kaolin Clay gently draws impurities and cleanses the skin and creates a creamy, yummy texture.
Apple AHAs contains gentle acids to help exfoliate without physical exfoliation that would damage the skin. It helps to gently slough away dead skin cells that have accumulated on the surface of the skin, while encouraging softer, smoother skin.
Lemon Peel Oil helps to brighten skin for a glowier appearance.
Licorice Root Extract, Camu Camu Berry Extract, and Niacinamide supports evening your skin's tone from discoloration, possibly melasma, hyperpigmentation, dark spots from post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or erythema (from acne-scarring).
Calendula helps to soothe and protect the skin from free-radicals, making it a perfect addition to reduce redness and/or irritation from the acids and balancing.
African Mafura Butter helps diminish blemishes and has been shown to be anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory, reducing fungus and bacteria within the skin.
Hyaluronic Acid is a natural humectant that helps to draw moisture into the skin, working with the butters, clays, and acids to ensure your skin won't dry out, but is instead, replenished of its natural moisture.
