Can also be used to reduce redness and inflammation overnight when used as a spot treatment. It's great for gentlemen too especially if you don't want the full mask experience and just need a quick dab of healing power.
To Use: Mix approx 3/4 tsp of the mask with 1/2 tsp water. (Add 1/4 tsp of SOMA for extra healing and hydration.) Apply a light layer of mask to cleansed skin avoiding the area around your eyes then rest with your feet up for 15-20 minutes. Rinse using circular motions to buff away dead skin cells. Follow with the appropriate mist, oil, serum or balm. For spot treating mix a tiny bit of the NENEKTI with just enough water to form a past, apply to blemishes and allow to dry, then hit the hay. The spot treatment can be rinsed off in the morning.
Turmeric helps to reduce and clear acne scars and inflammation while controlling overactive oil glands. It also speeds the healing time of wounds and encourages collagen production and tissue regeneration meaning that it's a potent medicinal for repairing skin damage. Turmeric has the ability to prevent the formation of pigmentation caused by radiation, and is useful for brightening the skin.
Zinc is a great anti-inflammatory and helps to repair the skin quickly especially when it comes to acne flare ups and inflamed skin conditions such as rosacea. It regulates cell production and turnover, and can help reduce overactive sebaceous secretions thus reducing the formation of blackheads and acne. And, because it's a natural astringent, it also helps to reduce the size of large pores.
Green Tea Extract works superbly to prevent wrinkles and sagging skin as well as healing hormonal acne. It's catechins are anti-bacterial warding off acne causing bacteria in particular. With powerful antioxidants, it delays premature aging, helps to heal damaged cells, and fight free radicals.

Cinnamon is antiseptic, anti-fungal and antibacterial helping to successfully eliminate acne causing bacteria and helping wounds to heal faster. With cinnamaldehyde, it's main chemical component, it is able to activate growth factors and improve collagen expression making it helpful in reversing the signs of aging. It also helps to improve the texture and complexion of the skin.
Raw Cocoa can prevent premature aging as well as increase hydration and calm and soothe the skin. The polyphenol antioxidants found in cacao are higher than that of green tea, black tea or red wine. They repair skin cells and neutralize harmful free radicals from damaging new skin cells.
Marshmallow root works as a mucilage which contains moisturizing, soothing and cooling properties that help to reduce inflammation. Marshmallow root has low concentrations of ceramide precursors, a natural hydrator which helps to repair the skin barrier.
