This product comes in a screw lid tin and you need to add some hydration (water, yogurt, floral water, milk, tea etc) to make it into a paste and apply on your face for a deep skin cleansing.
Mineral clays have the power to draw out impurities from the skin and you can finish your cleansing routine by applying a gentle scrub and a moisturizer.
How to Use:
Mix 1/2 teaspoon of clay with 1/2 teaspoon of a liquid of your choice. Mix well and add more liquid if necessary to reach a paste. Apply on your face with your fingers or a makeup brush.
Leave on for 15 minutes and you will see the clay dry on your face. Remove with clean, warm water.
For dry skin: We recommend a few drops of vegetable oil (such as rosehip, jojoba, sweet almond oil) with your clay/liquid mix as the clay has very drying properties.
Wash as above.
