Mask Grains for Oily and Break-Out Prone Skin
Free Lion Mask Grains for Oily and Break-Out Prone Skin are a blend of natural plant powders and extracts selected for their ability to absorb and balance out oil production; moisturize and soothe break-out stressed skin; kill bacteria that may cause acne; and fade acne scars. Many of these ingredients were staples in my grandmother's Ayurvedic Beauty cabinet.
How to Use
Once to three times a week, use Mask Grains to replenish and exfoliate your skin. Take a tablespoon of grains. Add one pump of Night Oils, a few drops of Hydrating Tonic and enough distilled water to make a paste. Spread mask over your face, avoiding eye area. Leave on for 20 minutes. With damp fingers or damp washcloth, work the mask in little circles on your skin to exfoliate. Rinse off mask with warm water. Follow up with cleansing routine.
