Start with a Clean Canvas: Begin by gently washing your face with a mild cleanser to remove all traces of dirt, oil, and makeup. This ensures the mask can work effectively by penetrating deep into your pores.
Apply the Mask: Spread the mask evenly across your face using a brush or your fingertips. Be careful to avoid the sensitive areas around your eyes and mouth. The layer should be thick enough to cover your skin, but not overly so, as it will only waste the product and lengthen the drying time.
Patience is Key: Allow the mask to dry for the recommended time on the packaging, typically about 10-15 minutes. A slight tingling sensation is normal as the clay mask works to extract impurities from your skin. If you feel any severe discomfort, rinse off immediately.
Time to Rinse: Once the mask is completely dry, gently rinse it off with warm water. Using a soft washcloth can aid in removal, but remember to be gentle to avoid irritating your skin.
Don't Forget to Moisturise: After washing off the mask, hydrate your skin by applying a moisturiser. If you're using this mask at night, consider the Restorative Organic Night Cream with Frankincense Oil for added nourishment.
Regular Use: For the best results, use the mask once or twice a week. Overuse can lead to dryness as clay masks can draw out skin's natural oils.
Skincare Etiquette: Remember not to use other strong skincare products like chemical exfoliants or retinoids on the same day as the mask, as this might be too harsh for your skin. Allow your skin to rest and rejuvenate post-treatment.
Enjoy the process and the results of your skincare routine. Remember, consistency is key to achieving a healthy, glowing complexion.
