How To Use
Sacred Self Care
WHEN TO USE: Honoring your skin type is such an important consideration for our refining cleanser. That said, these are guidelines and your skin will always show you the way.
- Oily and problematic skin: 1-2/x day
- Combo/normal skin: 1/x day
- Dry skin: Perfect as a treatment, using as needed
- Double Cleansers: (we know there are lots of you!) This is an excellent second cleanse.
HOW TO USE: The amount of water added is the catalyst for this multi-use cleanser. So to begin lean into your intuition and ask your skin what it needs as this can be different from day to day. Make sure to always use enough cleanser to achieve desired results and properly cleanse. Finally, with any kind of exfoliation (including our cleanser) being gentle is key.
- Cleanse: Generously wet your face, neck, and hands. Add a nickel size amount to your palm. Start to gently lather and apply to your face/neck massaging gently for 30 seconds and rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.
- Exfoliating Cleanse: This is about using less water to begin! Lightly damp face and neck, apply a nickel size amount to your hands, gently massage on to the face gradually adding water for 30 seconds. Rinse with lukewarm water.
- Flash Mask: Looking to deeply unclog pores, address acne, and replenish nutrients? Take a nickel size (or more if needed) to palm and apply a layer over skin for one minute at most then rinse as above. Keep usage to one minute!
