HOW TO APPLY A FACE MASK
STEP 1: REMOVE MAKEUP
Before you apply anything to your face, it’s essential to have a clean canvas to let your products get to, you know, your actual skin. So, make sure your face is free of makeup with our Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil. Massage this nourishing-feeling oil all over your dry face, add water to emulsify, then rinse off. It’s enriched with camomile extract from Norfolk, England and helps to remove all makeup, even waterproof mascara, revealing clean and fresh-feeling skin.
STEP 2: CLEANSE
The double cleanse is lauded for helping to clear out as much dirt, oil and impurities from the skin’s surface as possible. After clearing skin of make-up, here comes part two of that technique. Using our cleanser, the Vitamin E Gentle Facial Wash, you’ll help to rid your face of anything that might still be clinging on after step 1, leaving skin feeling refreshed and ready to soak up all the good stuff from your face mask.
STEP 3: APPLY MASK
The crux of how to apply a face mask comes down to this. Make use of our Facial Mask Brush to smooth the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask evenly over your entire face, avoiding the eye and lip areas. You might want to use your fingertips to apply to targeted areas, too. Make sure you get into all the hard-to-reach nooks and crannies of your face and sweep underneath the jaw line and onto the neck too, if you like.
STEP 4: LEAVE ON FOR 10 MINUTES
The easiest step to follow – now’s the time to chill. This is that pampering time we’ve all heard so much about, but never actually gotten round to. Trust us, you can carve this out – 10 minutes is all it takes to let the mask set to work. In that time you could do anything from the washing-up to, dare we say it, lie back and relax for forty winks. We won’t tell if you won’t.
STEP 5: RINSE
10 minutes up already? By now you should have felt the effects of your face mask, especially if you’re using our tingle-teaser of a Charcoal Mask. You might even notice that some areas of your face appear darker where the mask has soaked up more oil than in other places. Wonderful – it’s time to rinse using warm water and one of our Muslin Cloths. Gently massage the wet cloth around your face until all product is gone.
STEP 6: MOISTURISE
What to do after removing the face mask? Little known, but there’s one step left. Now you’ve helped to purify skin with our invigorating charcoal mask, you’ll need to help restore moisture. Your skin will drink up our Drops of Youth™ Youth Cream, a whipped face moisturiser that’s infused with plant stem cells. It helps skin to feel more supple and smooth and rounds off your regime, making you feel like you’ve been to a spa without ever leaving your bathroom.
