masks

Treat your skin once a week

Always patch test on a small area (side of face or neck) to check for allergic reactions!

Masks are a stand alone treatment for the skin. Each mask has a different and specific purpose.

Masks are generally used once a week, but you can use them twice – depending on your skin.

How to apply masks

You can either use your fingers or a facial sponge or a facial brush to apply the mask.

The following recipes are all one use recipes.

The amount of time the mask is left on the skin varies with each mask.

Rinse with warm water.

After removing the mask, apply a moisturiser, to replenish the skin. If you do not have access to a moisturiser, you can apply either Grapeseed oil or Rosehip oil to your skin instead – but not too much.
