Step-by-Step Dry Face Mask Application


Place 1  teaspoon of mask powder in a bowl. 

Add 1-2 teaspoons of wetting ingredients of your choice. 

You could use simple water or add floral waters, or your favourite fruit and vegetable pulps (e.g. avocado, banana, cucumber puree), or dairy products (yoghurt), or honey.

To ensure the overall pH of the final product is appropriate vinegar and citrus should not be used.

Mix together all ingredients thoroughly. You can adjust the ratio to achieve the desired consistency. 

The mask should be thick enough to spread evenly but not too thick that it's difficult to apply.



Clean your skin to remove makeup and debris.

Steam your skin with a hot, damp towel to open pores.

Using a face mask brush or spatula, apply the mask to your cleansed face and neck, avoiding the eyes and lips.

Leave the mask on for 5-10 minutes, without letting it dry out completely (follow the 3 phases of a clay mask).

Soften the mask with a warm, damp towel, then gently wipe it off using the towel.

Rinse your face thoroughly and follow up with your favourite  toner and moisturiser.



Phase 1: Clay mask feeds your skin important ingredients.

Phase 2: Clay mask begins to tighten, which draws out impurities in the skin and increases blood flow.

Phase 3: Clay mask dries out. (AVOID THIS PHASE) When the mask dries completely, it strips your skin of good nutrients and oils.



Our dry masks ensure a longer shelf life without the use of harsh preservatives. Ensure your hands or utensils are clean and dry when measuring the clay from the container.

Refrain from using metal tools or bowls when mixing your mask, as some clays may react with metal, compromising their effectiveness.

Prepare the mask immediately before application. Avoid storing any mixed product.

Be cautious, as certain clays and botanical extract can stain fabrics and may stain surfaces.

For external use only. Do not let the product come into contact with your eyes.



Using a clay mask once or twice a week is generally recommended, but this can vary depending on your skin type and specific needs.

If you have sensitive or dry skin, you may want to limit usage to once a week or less. Always monitor your skin's response and adjust frequency accordingly.

Conduct a patch test before applying the product to your entire face before beginning any new skincare routine, especially if you have known skin conditions or allergies.
