Designed in collaboration with Yaupon Brothers American Tea of New Smyrna Beach, Florida, this Yaupon and Turmeric Mask features antioxidant powerhouses turmeric root and yaupon green tea, the only native U.S.-grown tea. It detoxes, exfoliates, and its mild caffeine content and anti-inflammatory curcumin deliver a rejuvenating boost of skin nutrition.

Like all of our powdered masks, this one can be customized to fit your skin’s particular mood. For basic detoxing and exfoliation, simply mix with water, but if you’re especially dry, add a rich oil like olive or shea, or if you’re breaking out, add some honey and tea tree oil. For mature skin, try nourishing jojoba or manuka oil. The possibilities are limitless.

We recommend using 2–3 times a month, customized however you like, as part of your specialty skincare routine and followed by a deep-moisturizing treatment featuring Cream and a serum. (For more customization ideas and tips for determining your skin’s needs, check out Adina’s books Skin Cleanse and Just the Essentials.)
