What does the lemon essential oil in Redmond Clay Charcoal Cucumber Mask do?

Lemon essential oil has purifying and slightly astringent qualities that cleanse and rejuvenate the skin.

Lemon is one of Mother Nature’s many impressive, multi-tasking ingredients. The fruit is full of nutrients and the aroma has been shown to reduce stress, ward off mosquitoes, and more. We included lemon essential oil from lemon peel in our masks because it can benefit the skin in many ways. 

Studies show that lemon essential oil can protect against impurities, and help clean, soothe, and refresh the skin. It is also slightly astringent, assisting in the removal of dead skin cells that can clog pores. In addition, it has powerful antioxidant activity that can help protect your skin cells from environmental stressors so they stay healthy.
