HOW TO CREATE YOUR CREAMY, DREAMY EXFOLIATING CLEANSER!
The mix ratio is about 1:1 (I add about 1/2 of a dinner spoon full of powder, and about the same amount of water. Mix this in the small container I send along with your order.
The mixture needs to be thin enough to pour. If it doesn't pour easily add a little more water.
If you tend to have dry skin or want extra conditioning add up to 1/2 teaspoon of an oil, such as cleansing oil blend, (just not liquid coconut or castor oil) I'd recommend sweet almond oil, jojoba, hempseed oil, grapeseed oil. Mix a little more. This will reduce the amount of bubbles but adds a lot of conditioning and will reduce any dryness that might result from using a foaming cleanser.
Pour some of the mixture into your palm. Rub briskly together to create a creamy lather, or pour onto a washcloth. The washcloth method is less messy, since the mixture is dark due to the charcoal, the washcloth greatly reduces the amount of cleanup if you are washing in the sink.
Scrub your face and neck, rinse very thoroughly with quite warm water.
FOLLOW UP WITH FACIAL OILS: Pat some of the water off your face but don't dry off completely. Alternatively, pat completly dry, then spritz with pure hydrosol as a toner. Apply a generous amount of facial oils to damp skin, massage gently then allow to air dry. Massage periodically as your face is drying disperse oils and enhance penetration.
NOTE: Since you have now introduced water, the remaining mixture will need to be used or discarded in 3 days. Clean the small jar well and allow to dry before making up a new batch.
Keep the powder away from moisture.
Use 2-3 times a week.
