Skin Better’s Detox Scrub Mask has such versatility in the skin types it is meant for (basically everyone) and how you use it through the changing seasons and monthly hormonal changes, whether you want a quick refresh or a more full-on home treatment, it’s all in the duration of your application.
The standard for dry/sensitive skin is about 3-5 minutes 1-2 times a week. Normal skin is about 5-7 minutes twice weekly. And with oily and acneic skin up to 15 minutes 2-3 times a week. But these are just guidelines.
Sometimes our skin condition can change with the weather, the seasons, health fluctuations, or for women, that time of the month. So this is where you may need to adjust time and duration accordingly. On any given day or week try to be “in tune” with your skin. If you’re feeling more dehydrated than usual, scale back a bit on the mask or other more active products and focus on moisture. In the same respect, if you’re feeling more oily or dealing with a bout of stubborn breakouts, you may need to step up your duration with the mask a bit and hold off on heavier creams and such. All that is to say, follow the directed guidelines for the Detox Scrub Mask, but as your skin may inevitably change throughout the weeks, months and the year, modify your routine as needed.
My last little bit of advice I personally learned the hard-ish way, which I will take as the universe’s way of me passing down the knowledge to you. Don’t worry, it wasn’t that bad.
But that bit of advice is to thoroughly remove the entire mask. Seems a bit obvious but it’s worth reiterating. I’m an aesthetician but I am also human and happened to be very tired when removing this mask and only did the bare minimum. I knew I could have been more thorough but sleepiness was taking over and I was like “meh, I’ll be fine.” And I was. Don’t get me wrong. But I did wake up the next morning with much drier and even slightly flaky skin. No irritation, I want to note but definite dehydration as that clay and the mild acids sat on my skin overnight.
So, I definitely recommend upon removing the mask to take a face towel, soak in lukewarm water, wring out and wipe off the mask as thoroughly as possible with the towel, repeating if necessary until all product is cleared away. Afterwards, use a toner to bring the skin back into PH balance and ensure you’ve removed all residue then follow with your favorite serum and moisturizer.
As always, if you have any questions regarding this product and whether it is right for you, you can book a consultation or facial treatment where your needs will further be discussed!
