It’s no secret that I think Painted Earth Skin Care line is exceptional. Product after product that I’ve reviewed is better than the last!! This one is one of my top favorites!! Color Therapy masque is a dry powder, only activated after you mix it with a liquid of your choice. I mixed my Color Therapy with vitamin C serum.
Color Therapy is made with beet powder, turmeric powder and vitamins B & C, this masque is well-rounded and mild for all skin types. It can be especially useful for dry, mature, sun-damaged skin. That would be me!!
Now, as far as how it works! I love that I mix this mask myself! I know the ingredients are fresh because I’m the one doing the mixing. The mask isn’t sitting on a shelf forever waiting for me to come by and grab one off the shelf. I mix my Color Therapy Masque with Vitamin C Serum. I make a paste using 2 parts masque and 1 part liquid. I leave my masque on for anywhere from 5 minutes to 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. My face is baby soft! BABY SOFT with no tightening or drying!! So I thought I would try the masque on the back of my hands WOW!!! NOW that IS amazing!! If a masque can make your HANDS soft think of what it will do with the skin on your face!!
A little background, Turmeric root has long been used in medicine as a natural anti-bacterial agent to treat skin infections, boils, wounds and burns. Traditionally, it was pounded into a paste and applied to the skin.
Beet powder is extremely rich in iron, potassium, niacin, copper, vitamin A, vitamin C, folic acid, biotin, niacin, zinc, phosphorus, sodium, calcium, manganese and mangnesium. Beets provide a natural source of phosphate and copper, which are necessary for the skin to stretch.
Vitamin B5 improves the moisture-retention capacity of the skin and stimulates skin regeneration. Dry skin fortified with vitamin B5 stays supple and elastic for longer than it would, otherwise. It also lends an anti-inflammatory, anti-itching effect.
Ascorbyl Palmitate, a form of vitamin C, is found naturally in fruits & green vegetables and is an essential part of normal metabolism, wound healing, and tissue repair. Solubility enables this form of vitamin C to reach the surface of the skin rapidly in amounts greater than can be achieved by water-soluble vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid), therefore providing a readily available form of vitamin C to skin.
Color Therapy Masque can be used by individuals who have normally sensitive skin.
