From the rich volcanic deposits of southern France comes one of the most prized materials for facial masks, GlamGlow Products. While France is not usually thought of as a center of volcanic activity, the country has a intricate series of tectonic structures, including active geothermal springs. From the South of France, off the coast of the legendary Riviera, Cannes, St. Tropez and Monaco, lay deposits of rich volcanic and mineral ash from now-extinct volcanoes. These form the basis of the formulas for GlamGlow Products.
The history of mud masks for facial skin care has a long history -- certainly this technique has been practiced over many centuries -- and for good reason. The effectiveness of long contact, usually at least a quarter of an hour, of a mineral-rich or volcanic material on the face allows the skin to absorb the vital minerals and nutrients, while the material itself absorbs the excess oils from the skin and helps to gently exfoliate the surface. The formulas of GlamGlow Products include extra ingredients to also help heal, strengthen and protect the skin.

Additional GlamGlow Products Information
The spas of southern France date back to at least the ancient Romans, where the combination of sun, warm waters and rich, healing minerals led to the idea of villas devoted to intensive skin care. GlamGlow Products continue this tradition, designed especially for Hollywood's entertainment, music, fashion and awards industries. The skin care formulas offered provide soft, glowing camera-ready skin for the stars -- and for you.
In addition to just the sheer relaxation that comes from a facial mask session, the ingredients in GlamGlow Tingling Exfoliating Mud Mask add to your pleasure by the wonderful results. The skin is left bright and soft, with a smoother, tighter texture. These accomplishments are the result of the rich ingredients in the mask material, particularly the mineral-rich Montmorillonite (French mineral clay), volcanic particles and ash and kaolin, a refined, white clay. These absorb the excess oils on skin, without interfering the natural sebum levels. Their gentle exfoliating action also removes the old, dead skin cells and accumulated dust, dirt and impurities from the skin, unpacking clogged pores. In addition, the formula contains extracts of marigold (Calendula officinalis) flowers, ivy (Hedera helix) and chamomile flowers to promote the production of collagen and elastin cells, restoring a smooth, firm tone to the skin. Green tea extract, and actual particles of the leaves, are provided for their antioxidant benefits, as is grape seed oil, which also acts as an emollient. Use this mask just once or twice a week, or as often as you feel the desire, to achieve star-like skin quality.
