From Willow & Oak:
Botanical Detox Mask
A cocktail of exotic
spices, flowers and earthen clays
to revitalize your complexion back to radiance.
Masque Your Problems Away will brighten and soften your skin with gentle exfoliation and deep detoxification to effectively balance oily, dull and acne prone skin.
When old skin cells start to accumulate this can lead to excess oil and clogged pores. A bad combination that will uncomfortably lead to acne breakouts. But this is a sign for you to take action and create a patient and kind ritual of self-care to prevent and heal these surface issues.
Why bother to exfoliate? Exfoliating will encourage fresh new cells to surface and will allow products to penetrate more deeply and effectively.
suitable for acne prone and oily skin, not for sensitive skin
Tips | Uses: ACHIEVING ULTIMATE RESULTS WITH A BOTANICAL MASK:
Cleanse skin first then apply a hot towel on face for a few minutes. The heat from the towel will open up the pores, soften the skin and allow the mask to penetrate deeper, which will help pull toxins and unclog deep rooted blackheads.
Scoop 1 tsp. of the mask to equal parts liquid of choice, mix until a paste-like consistency is formed. Apply to clean damp skin in light circular strokes, avoiding eye area. Leave on for about 10 minutes or less, but DO NOT let fully dry. Rinse with cool or preferably cold water to close pores. Follow up with “I Go To Work” spot treatment to help diminish scars and to rejuvenate your appearance.
Best mixed in a deep cup or bowl, with beauty brush. Do not use metal as this mask contains clay ( clay absorbs metals). Wood is ideal.
For a more hydrating mask use honey or aloe vera gel. For a more intense mask use raw apple cider vinegar
Apply mask to the T-ZONE of the face where the pores are the largest. During the wet phase of the mask, this is where all the nutrients get absorbed into the skin as it begins to dry (but not completely) impurities are drawn out, the skin tightens, blood begins to circulate which will give a suppleness to your face. It's important that you DO NOT let the mask dry completely. This will have the reverse effect of drying out your skin leaving it itchy, dry and absorbing all the good stuff you just put into it.
Rinse with cool or preferably cold water to close pores and to lock in all that good stuff.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
No synthetic preservatives or chemicals of any kind are used to make things last forever. Working with plant-based ingredients some variations in color will vary from batch to batch. Every season brings different results. Working in this rhythm and respect is what makes Willow & Oak’s products fresh and effective.
