Can we talk about my December skin for a moment? It decided to flip the heck out on me and not only broke out, but decided it would be great to top things of with some serious dry skin. Flaking and breaking out. Real cool skin, real cool. Thankfully I had this gem in the beauty stash. Osmia Organics Detox Exfoliating Mask* to the rescue! It’s a fantastic multi-tasker that not only helps to purify the skin, but also helps to smooth away those nasty winter flakes.
While this amazing mask already has raw manuka honey powder (seriously didn’t even know you could powder honey), my favorite way to use it is with MORE HONEY! Mix a little of the powder with a dollop of your favorite raw honey and then slather it all over your face. Now wait. Sensitive gals like myself probably only want to leave it on about 15 minutes or so. Rinse it off in soft circular movements to make use of the bamboo charcoal and olive leaf powders exfoliating action. DO NOT SCRUB! Your face isn’t in need of sanding. I promise. After rinsing, pat dry and follow up with your favorite serums.
Post mask my skin felt like it had been professionally polished by a fellow esthetician. Needless to say I’m in love and it really helped get my skin back on track.
