Hey Batty & Team-
I’m just curious- am I correct in thinking that the Cystic Acne Oil Balancing Mask is a hydrator for my skin? I am planning to use it 3 times a week (basically every other day). Should I be using my Tea Tree Scrub after to ensure the “dirt” is removed? I’m a bit confused as to where I should be fitting this into my routine.
Hey Radiant Rebel!
That a really good question. The Cystic Acne & Oil Balancing Mask is a multitasker that can be used a few different ways, so we could understand how it could be a little confusing. Here’s some guidance for you:
- If you’re wanting to use it as a hydrator (which it totally is), simply apply a light layer under your moisturizer each day. Just make sure you let it fully absorb before trying to apply any makeup.
- An alternative daily use is to apply a layer of the mask before hopping in the shower. Leave it on for the duration of the shower, and then wash your face last. This is a trick that Batty swears by to help keep her acne at bay.
- If you’re wanting to use it more as a traditional mask, apply a full layer and allow it to dry completely. Leave it on for an extra 5 mins for good measure. Then use your Tea Tree Scrub (or one of our other exfoliants) to removed the debris that’s been pulled from your pores.
Essentially, you can’t go wrong with this one! The first option can be used both during the AM or PM portion of your routine as well. Just work it in when it fits best into your routine for you and your skin.
Hope this helps!
With love and radiance,
