Face preparation

  1. Wash face thoroughly and remove any make-up that you have on.
  2. Pull back all hair away from the face (don’t want things to get too messy).
  3. Wear a top that you wouldn’t mind if it gets stained.  

(If you do end up getting something that you like stained you can give it a hand wash and leave it out in the sun to dry, should do the trick).

Preparing mask and application:    

  1. Combine all ingredients apart from almond oil into a bowl.
  2. Apply 80% of the mask to face and neck evenly.
  3. Add the almond oil to the rest of the 20% of the remaining mask and apply around the eyes. This will help moisturise, remove dark circles and ease out lines around the eyes.
  4. Wash mask off with warm water and dab the face down gently with a cloth.

How often to apply mask

We would recommend using the mask twice a month. This would keep the skin glowing and also keep it fresh and youthful. If you are suffering from Acne or have pimples and scaring you can use this more often.
