Just made one of my favorite masks – Plantain Purity!! Plantain (Plantago Major) is actually a common weed that grows pretty much everywhere (just to be clear – the Plantain herb should not be confused with banana looking Plantain Fruit!)
It should really be called “a miracle weed” due to its many healing properties. The pertinent one here is that Plantain is one of the Best Herbs for Drawing Toxins from your body and healing your skin with its cleansing and stimulating properties!!
It’s rich in vitamins A, B, C and K - as well as protein. We generally recommend this mask for someone with acne or skin impurities, but in reality everyone can benefit from it. This is especially true after the Holidays - when unnecessary foods/candies/drinks and their artificial contaminants may have been consumed with all the Holiday Fare!
I keep this mask on for about 10min or when I start feeling the heat or tingling, then wash it off. Redness may appear and that is totally normal - it means the mask is working! (Redness comes from the increased circulation, oxygen flow and drawing out of impurities.) The skin feels amazingly soft and supple afterwards. As with any of our products-little goes a long way - our 2oz jar generally lasts me up to a year!
