10 Degrees Cooler by Apothecary 90291 | 06 Royal Jelly & Enzymes Hydrating Mask
This wonderful, nutrient-dense mask is an excellent way to protect your face from the free radical ravages of environmental pollutants. This is due to its very high ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity), which stems from its numerous antioxidant ingredients. These antioxidants, along with a blend of amino acids, enzymes, fatty acids and other skin-health-boosting nutrients, penetrate deeply to feed and hydrate your face. As a result, the skin will become healthier, smoother, and younger looking.
Unlike most masks available today, Apothecary 90291 Royal Jelly & Enzymes Hydrating Mask comes to you in powder form for you to mix yourself. This ensures maximum potency of the ingredients which remain unactivated until you are ready to use the mask. Your experience will be tailor-made to your own preferences and fresh every time.
This mask is basically a super-food for your face! It can be used by people with all skin types. The great influx of powerful antioxidants along with vitamins and the wonderful benefits from the amino and nucleic acids from the royal jelly and bee pollen will give your face a healthy rosy glow after each use!
The raw royal jelly in this mask is designed to create life within bee hives. As such, it is an incredibly rich source of protein that also contains high levels of minerals, B vitamins and 17 amino acids, making it a strong weapon in the fight against inflammatory skin conditions and the effects of aging. Royal jelly creates firmer, more toned skin by stimulating cell renewal and promoting the synthesis of collagen and elastin.
The royal jelly and bee pollen in this mask also contain high levels of nucleic acids (which are building blocks of DNA and RNA). These nucleic acids penetrate deeply to stimulate the growth of new cell tissues. Powerfully supplemented with vitamins from goji berries, the skin-brightening alpha hydroxy acids found in pumpkin, and the age-defying zinc and B vitamins of bananas and other ingredients, this mask will hydrate and nurture your face with the finest skin care tools nature has to offer.

Ingredients — 100% Certified Organic:
Aloe barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Powder, Oryza sativa (Rice) Powder, Musa sapientum (Banana) Fruit Powder, Bee Pollen (Pollen) Powder, Cucurbita pepo (Pumpkin) Powder, Apis mellifera (Raw Royal Jelly) Powder, Lycium barbarum L. (Goji) Berry Powder
Aloe Leaf Powder -This amino acid and enzyme-rich powder, derived from the raw interior of the aloe leaf, nourishes and soothes the skin, leaving it more smooth and supple. When applied as a mask, this powder, packed with vitamins and minerals, will also help lock in moisture, helping reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Rice Powder -For thousands of years Asian women have known to balance oily skin and control acne with oilabsorbing rice powder. The vitamin B in rice powder helps protect the skin from the sun's damaging rays and slows the aging process. When applied as a mask rice powder also acts as a great skin tightener and exfoliant.
Banana Fruit Powder -It probably comes as no surprise that bananas are full of nutrients and antioxidants, but what makes super-hydrating banana even more valuable is how gentle it is on sensitive skin. All skin types will benefit from the direct application of the age-defying zinc and B vitamins found in banana (along with vitamin C that improves the appearance of acne and age spots).
Bee Pollen -Those who 'know' know that bee pollen is not just a superfood for the body (which it is) but that its intense concentration of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, silica and fatty acids are pure, organic 'skin food'. Bee pollen is uniquely bursting with nucleic acids which are the building blocks of both RNA and DNA. What does this mean for you? When bee pollen soaks into your skin it immediately starts stimulating cell growth which is the key to fighting free radical damage and aging.
Pumpkin Powder -Pumpkin powder smoothes and brightens skin because it is positively bursting with alpha hydroxy acids (AHA's) and fruit enzymes that increase cell turnover. Its uniquely small molecular structure allows it to really penetrate the skin deeply, helping to control pigmentation and other signs of aging skin. What's more, this iconic fall staple can be used year round to fight acne due to its high zinc content (zinc balances skin by controlling oil producing hormones) and its vitamin A and vitamin C antioxidants boost collagen production which combats wrinkles.
Royal Jelly Powder (Raw) -Royal jelly is a superfood made by male drone bees to feed every bee larva in the colony (but especially the queen, hence the 'royal' name). Along with vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5 and B6, royal jelly also contains zinc and the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. All of these, as well as nutrients like nucleic acid and flavonoids, work to feed your skin and the muscles beneath it. As we age, slowed collagen production makes skin thinner and less elastic. Minerals in royal jelly such as silicon lead to increased collagen production giving skin greater elasticity when applied regularly.
Goji Berry Powder -Goji berries have achieved high status in the world of natural health in recent years and not without good reason. Each raisin-sized fruit packs a massive antioxidant-rich punch when eaten and when applied to the skin. Our certified organic goji berry powder directs all of its vitamin and antioxidant goodness at the free radicals that cause facial wrinkles. A great antiinflammatory, goji berry powder also firms and tones the skin while helping hide the appearance of scars and healing sun damage.
1. In a small bowl or cup, add a bit of warm water or your favorite toner to 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of mask powder.
For a great enzyme and hydration boost, add a little raw honey and/or some organic plain yoghurt to the mask.
2. Mix your mask until it reaches your desired consistency (While some prefer a creamier mask, others find a more liquid mask easier to apply. Either way is fine.
3. Next, 'paint' the mask on with a fan brush or makeup brush, or you can simply use your fingers. Be sure to apply the mask under your jawline and even down your neck and décolletage.
Allow your mask to dry 5-15 minutes. Most people with normal to oily skin should easily be able to allow 10-15 minutes of drying time. Individuals with more sensitive skin may wish to only leave the mask on for 5 minutes or less before removing.
4. To remove, use a warm wet washcloth to soften the dry mask before gently washing off. Alternatively, you can apply your mask treatment just before your shower and simply wash it off there.
Feel free to enjoy the benefits of this mask 1 to 2 times per week.
Avoid contact with eyes.
