How to Use a Powder Face Mask
Using a face mask is a great step to add into your skincare routine. There are several different types of masks out there, but we recommend using a clay face mask, like our Saguaro Fizzing Face Mask. Saguaro Fizzing Face Mask is a 100% natural, powder mask that has amazing exfoliative properties but isn’t abrasive to your skin. If you’ve never used a powder mask before, we have some easy steps to follow to get you started.
First you want to start off by washing your face. Having a clean base to start with allows your skin to reap all of the benefits the mask has to offer. Once you’ve finished washing your face, you will want to make sure you pat your skin dry.
2. Prepare the mask
Put about 1 tablespoon of your powder mask in a bowl. Add enough water to make a fizzing mixture. The mixture should be just thick enough to spread. Lightly mix the clay and water with a brush or small spoon. The thickness of the mask is solely dependent on your personal preference. Some people prefer a thicker mask, so add less water. If you don’t want a super thick mask, add more water. You will notice when you add water that it starts to fizz up and change color from gray to sea foam green!
Optional: Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil or serum to the mixture. This will not only elevate the experience but the benefits of the oils and serums will also work while in the mask. We love to add a few drops of the Acadia Day Serum or the Katmai Night Serum.
3. Apply the mask
You can apply the mask in a variety of different ways. If you have a brush, you can apply it with that, it makes the application process a little easier and goes on more smoothly. Or you can apply the mask with your fingertips. Make sure you are covering all of the skin except the skin around your eyes.
4. Let it dry
Now we wait! Once the mask is on your face, let it dry, ~12-15 minutes.
5. Rinse off the mask
You can use straight warm water to rinse it off, or you can take a warm, damp washcloth to help clean the mask off. If you like, give your skin a finishing touch with a few drops of our Acadia Day Serum or Katmai Night Serum.
We wouldn’t recommend using a mask more than once or twice a week. The Saguaro Fizzing Face Mask has both chemical and physical exfoliative properties, and you don’t want to exfoliate your skin too much.
