Despite all of our product boxes detailing instructions on how to mix your mask (which will give you a wonderful facial by the way), there are more great ways to use each one that can help you tailor your skincare experience to get more out of your product. All of our facial masks are waterless, meaning that you get an incredibly pure and potent product that's preservative free - one less clean beauty hurdle to navigate and it's eco-friendly too.
Let’s start with the best-selling Nourish Facial Mask, a green, mineral-rich powerhouse treatment mask that imparts an instant glow to the skin. It boosts circulation, minimises the look of pores, reduces redness and firms the skin. For the classic mask experience which will exfoliate, smooth and soften the skin, apply a thick layer on a clean face and leave for 20 minutes or until dry.
To really deepen the benefits of the mask, try a facial steam. Apply the mask to your face while you wait for the kettle to boil. Pour the boiling water into a large heat-proof bowl, drape a towel over your head to catch the steam, and breathe deeply. The eucalyptus essential oil will clear sinuses and boost circulation to the skin, increasing the delivery of nutrients to skin cells. The steam will help the nutrients in the mask penetrate your skin better, and get rid of dead skin to really clean it, reduce pore size, and boost cell renewal. When the water has cooled, rinse your face thoroughly with warm water, massaging gently in circular motions. Steam is also intensely hydrating for skin, which will help to plump out fine lines and create a more absorptive surface for your moisturiser.
To mix up your mask and amplify the skin healing benefits, try mixing with aloe juice or gel instead of water. The Nourish Mask contains a generous amount of gotu kola (more humbly known in the UK as pennywort), which has been widely studied for its skin healing and skin firming effects. Couple this with anti-inflammatory and healing aloe vera and you have yourself an incredibly effective treatment mask that quite literally appears to rewind time. If you have sensitive skin, this mix would work well with our Brighten Mask too.
To help treat and minimise spots, dab some of the Nourish Mask on a single spot or breakout area and leave overnight. The antibacterial and astringent trio of tea tree, lemon tea tree and eucalyptus will get to work on the bacteria and help reduce redness and puffiness.
