About Face: Céla Glacier Clay Mask

Winter skin is blah. It’s dry and tight, but also kind of oily and dull looking. Blaming the frosty outdoors and overheated indoors provides a little relief, that is, until it’s mirror time. So using a mask, like Céla Glacier Clay Maskto create hydrating and deep-cleansing balance is key.

Imagined and crafted by Toronto’s Hamman Spa owner, and fellow Canuck, Celine Tadrissi, the Glacier Clay Mask was made intentionally for Canadian skin. You know, because we’re the ones who actually rough and tough our way through four very distinct weather seasons.

Like the product’s name suggests, this mask is fuelled with real, not commercially processed, glacial oceanic clay that is derived from B.C’s coast and boasts around 60 skin-beneficial minerals and elements. It deep cleanses, exfoliates and eliminates dead skin, excess oil, dirt and grime from your pores, while leaving your skin soft, toned and healthy looking. The formula’s addition of chamomile extract and glycerin support anti-aging by reducing inflammation which can cause fine lines, wrinkles and redness, along with increased water retention for plumper, smoother and moisturized skin.

With the heavy lifting taken care of, the rest is up to you. And your part is pretty easy. All you have to do is wash your face with a skin cleanser, shake the mask’s tube-shaped container a couple of times before squeezing a dollop of the clay in your hand. Apply a thin layer to your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin, hang out for 20-25 minutes, then rinse it off and enjoy the fresh tingling sensation. Rub in a little face lotion and you’re looking great and ready to go…even if your destination is bed.

Céla Glacier Clay Mask $50 for 75 ml, available at Chapters Indigo stores and online at www.thisiscela.com.
