A staple of the self-care movement, our rejuvenating mask ritual has become something we look forward to each and every week. The slow pace, the quiet moments and the commitment to self make this more than just a facial mask, it's a self-care experience.
Knowing that, it's still important to ensure you're using your mask to maximize benefit, without drying or irritating skin. Contrary to popular belief, unless you have an extremely oily complexion, it's unlikely you should allow your mask to dry completely during use!
There are three phases to clay mask application - the first two phases are beneficial for the skin: the damp phase, which is when the most beneficial minerals can absorb, and the beginning of the drying phase, which is cooling and tightening. The third phase is the dry phase - when the clay draws moisture back from the surface of the skin. If you have sensitive or reactionary skin - this is the phase to skip!
We love removing our mask just as it begins to dry, to take advantage of it's purifying powers without causing any irritation.
Today, we want to share how to effectively use our Rejuvenating Green Tea Clay Mask to prep, prime and purify for a radiant complexion, naturally.
How to use?
Mix 1 tbsp of our Rejuvenating Green Tea Clay Mask with water or activator of choice and mix to form a paste. Depending on the current needs of our skin, we love adding in a small amount of antioxidant rich aloe vera, raw honey, plant hydrosols or our favourite facial oil!
Gently apply to skin avoiding eye area and leave on until mask begins to dry (5-10 minutes). Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry with a clean towel. For an extra boost of radiance, follow with our Nourishing Facial Oil!
What does it do?
Crafted with detoxifying colloidal clay, rejuvenating green tea, seaweed, bergamot, grapefruit and orange - our mask brightens, minimizes pores, and leaves skin feeling fresh and clean!
Our mask is packed with potent antioxidants, specifically Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG) from green tea which targets free radical damage, particularly those caused by sun exposure or other environmental factors, and helps reduce hyper-pigmentation and inflammation.
Enjoy this nourishing weekly ritual, with Woodlot.
