Made by local Edmonton business, Ember.
This Detoxifying and Beautifying Clay and Charcoal mask helps clear up acne and blackheads, Tightens and shrinks pores, and helps to regenerate skin tissue combating wrinkles and encouraging youthful, glowing skin. Bentonite clay consists of aged volcanic ash also known as “Montmorillonite.”
Mix 1 part dry face masks powder (Approx 1 teaspoon) to 2 parts Liquid.
You may use Purified water or Aloe Gel.
Optional: For oily skin you can add apple cider vinegar and for dry skin you may want to add Jojoba oil or hemp oil.
Mix mask in a glass or plastic bowl until it is a smooth paste adding more liquid if needed. DO NOT USE METAL BOWL OR SPOONS. The clay will lose its effectiveness if it comes in contact with metal. Any leftovers may be stored in a plastic or glass container in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks.
Use fingers or a brush to apply mask to clean dry face. First a thin layer, then a second layer over top, beginning where you first started. Let mask dry for 10-15mins ~ 5-10 mins for sensitive skin.
DO NOT LET MASK DRY COMPLETELY ON SKIN.
Leaving the mask on too long is a mistake most people make all too often, the mask does not have to be dry before you take it off, you do not want the mask to strip your face of natural oils. Rinse mask off well with warm water and pat dry. Follow with a moisturizer such as Ember Jojoba & Lemongrass or Emu & Rosehip face oil.
You may use 1-2 times per week.
