Reparative mask for all skin types This soft flower-dust of a mask rebuilds skin tissue that is compromised, damaged from environmental factors, sensitized, or unhealthy. The extraordinary range of nutrients in Sungod comes from roots, mushrooms, adaptogenic herbs, leaves, flowers, fruits, seeds, and mineral-rich Celtic salt.

This is not a face mask that offers a quick but ephemeral brightening or purifying effect. Botanicals with the ability to substantially improve skin health and radiance need to be given a proper chance, with frequent applications and time (at least a few weeks). The results you can expect are an improvement in chronic skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne, and cold-sore outbreaks; as well as faster skin healing and improved elasticity, thickness, coloring, firmness, and resilience (such as a decrease in tendency toward scarring). Mature and dry or dehydrated skin will look revitalised, thicker, and better nourished.

For all skin types, especially mature, with signs of aging, with eczema, and acne-prone. Some individuals are allergic to flower pollen; patch test first.

If you are wondering which face mask is the right choice for you:

Sungod is a soft powder mask designed to gradually yet significantly improve the skin over time. With regular use it helps reduce signs of aging and heal scars, eczema, psoriasis, and discolorations. The powder, a blend of wildflower pollen, shiitake and maitake mushrooms, and calendula and sunflower petals, forms a smooth, creamy paste when mixed with water or another liquid. This mask contains no essential oils, but does contain a small amount of mild clay.

While Sungod is nurturing, our Catharsis Face Mask is cooling and extremely versatile. It offers visible, immediate results, and has an invigorating, slightly bitter and green scent from the algae, aloe, and neem. We particularly recommend Catharsis for acne-prone skin and as a spot-treatment mask for blemishes.

Our third powder-format mask, Imhotep's Balsam, is hydrating and nourishing, with a scent that is evocative of mystical temples and a cedar forest. We particularly recommend this mask for dry or sensitive skin.

Catharsis and Imhotep's Balsam are both vegan and do not contain clay, while Sungod contains humanely-gathered flower pollen and a small amount of mild clay.

Measure out 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of the powder into a ceramic bowl and mix with a tiny amount of warm water to achieve a paste. Use your fingers to apply the paste in a thin, even layer onto washed, towel-dried skin, leave on for 10 to 30 minutes (mist periodically during rest time to prevent the mask from hardening, if you like), then rinse off. The mask can be used as often as desired.

Excellent as an in-the-shower mask, too. Add 1 to 4 drops of a facial oil or oil-based serum to the paste for a more nurturing treatment. Or add a bit of raw organic honey for an overall beautifying effect, or both the oil and the honey. Replace the warm water with a hydrosol of your choice or our Cistus and Moonlight Face Mist. Avoid inhaling the powder.

I don't have acne scars or any dramatic skin damage that needs healing so I can't talk about those results, but I did LOVE the effect that the Sungod mask delivered - softness and clarity of skin tone. I love to combine the Sungod powder with the Cistus and Moonlight Face Mist and a little raw organic local honey (the real stuff) - preparing a paste in a teeny little bowl, then lay back in the bath and relax for 15 minutes. If you have acne scars, or eczema or other areas that require a lot of TLC, then this is the mask for you. Given you are patient and dedicated to applying the mask once a week, you will - no doubt - be wonderfully surprised with the results.
