Power Blending Series: Zinc and Sulphur Masque

This is the ultimate guide for adding the Zinc and Sulphur Masque to your routine.


What is Power Blending? It is combining the best aspects of our product line to create a customized treatment for your skin in seconds based on what life has in store for you. It can be cheaper and more cost effective to buy customized smaller bottles of high quality ingredients and mix it with a favorite base product instead of buying individual products for every single occasional issue your skin faces. Whether it's occasional break-outs, dry weather at unpredictable times, or frequently traveling, power blends are recipes for successfully keeping your skin balanced and nourished.


But before we get to the power blends, a word from my daughter:

"Honestly, the Zinc and Sulphur Masque is what made me believe that there are companies making products out there really are trying to work towards seriously managing acne and not just selling you bottles of brightly colored water claiming to cure it. When you are looking for products to clear acne, you end up spending hundreds of dollars and own 30+ bottles of items that just don't work. This stuff seriously changed my life at a time where I was a candidate for Accutane and seriously considering it because of how cystic and persistent my acne was. Even online estheticians on YouTube list every single ingredient that is in this masque as the things you need to help clear your complexion.

I'm not going to say it was a miracle worker of pure magic and my acne went away and now I have glamorous model skin. I still manage my acne. You need to clean the skin consistently (but not obsessively), keep up with your routine, and I still needed a prescription for Retinol cream which I use to this day. However, this is both acne fighting AND soothing which is a big deal when you're using Retinol. It also eliminated the need for many products from my routine so I could keep up with my skin care more easily. I don't think either the Retinol nor the Masque by themselves would clear up my skin as much as it currently is, but together they are such a powerful combo that I no longer use 10+ bottles of potions nor spend all the extra money and it makes it much easier to travel.

When I started trying to manage my acne, I was doing something to my face 3-4 times a day, and putting upwards of 7-10 bottles of 'stuff' on my face and frequently having to change products. When I first started using the masque, I used it every night for nearly 3 weeks to initially purge my skin and I left it on the entire night and washed it well in the AM. Now, I wash with water + a light toner and use moisturizer in the morning (yeah, that's it, It takes maybe 30 seconds total), and I exfoliate (sometimes just with a washcloth), wash with a cleanser, and apply the retinol and moisturizer at night. The masque comes in as I need it, and I have a soothing gelle masque I use for winter time when I get wind burnt sometimes. I now use the Zinc masque it roughly once a month for 2-3 days in a row and leave it on for about an hour before I hop in the shower and more often as an overnight spot treatment. (Once a year I go to an esthetician to have extractions done to my face and have a facial treatment, it really helps keep my skin balanced out the entire year.)

It is nice to have manageable skin without constantly buying and keeping up with products or blowing tons of money. One jar of this stuff lasts me almost a year. I have used this skin care routine for 8+ years now, and have not changed hardly a thing in the routine since I made the switch. I am, most days, noticeably blemish free, and able to spot treat and not pick at the few blemishes that do crop up."


This masque has gotten some amazing reviews on it's versatility and acne fighting power, and we're so happy it can help not just our family members but young people everywhere.
