This Series we will focus on deep cleaning of the skin. We will talk about what's great for the skin and what's not so much. Clays are great for their deep cleansing abilities and how they assist to shrink pores and soothe this skin. We use clays in some of our soaps.
What we first need to define is our skin type. Hmmm how do do that? This is simple. If you skin never sweats or you moisturize and it just sucks it up you're dry. If you have shiny face all day no matter what it's oily. If you have shiny face and your skin feels tight its dehydrated. If you have a small amount of shine on the T-zone area (forehead to the nose) and the rest of the skin absorbs products properly its normal. No worries there is a mask for all skin types.
You can create masks in the privacy of your own home. To avoid mold and bacteria from growing into your products keep them refrigerated and don't forget to use them. You can make your own masks every 14 days. This mask if going to be for all skin types. we will touch on other skin types in the upcoming blogs.
