Step 1 Squeaky Clean: Wet face, shake about a teaspoon of powder into a small bowl or palm of hand, add drops of water to achieve desired consistency and apply to face the same way you would a soap or scrub. Leave on for up to 2 minutes. Feel the hibiscus, rosehips and frankincense soothing away the irritation. Wash off with warm water while gently scrubbing face with forward circular motion. Feel the rosehip exfoliating and carrying away the accumulated, um, shmutz from under the mask. Aaaah. Enjoy the deep clean.
We enjoy taking this step immediately after removing our mask at the end of the day.
Step 2 Take a breather: Place 2 heaping tablespoons of herbs into 2 cups of boiled hot water. Position your face over the water, cover the top of your head with a towel, like a canopy. Be mindful this is hot water. We know, time is precious, enjoy the steam for 2-15 minutes.
Also may be used as a facial toner, rinse or spray, simply prepare as a tea and keep in the fridge for 3-5 days.
Step 3 Blissful Earth Body Oil: Although this is technically a body oil, the botanical oils, herbs and essential oils are perfect for soothing and moisturizing skin that may be combatting microbial growth due to irritation that a mask can cause. We love it for moisturizing skin after steaming and/or cleansing at the end of a masky day. Simply pour a few drops onto clean hands, spread between finger tips and massage into skin as you would any facial oil.
Step 4 All Purpose Salve: Depending on the environment, the mask, and the individual, some of us find it very helpful to apply a very thin layer of All Purpose salve to our skin before donning our masks. This salve is also a great hand salve for healing skin after washing frequently.
