You love everything about balmy evenings and long days—except for the effect it has on your skin. You might be sporting an enviable tan and wearing broad-spectrum protection, of course, but warm rays have a way of expediting excess dryness and overall dullness. There is nothing like frolicking among the sands of Newport Beach or Padre Island… and then returning home to a super-powered solution that you can count on, minute by beauty-boosting minute.
It’s face-saving, beauty. Scoop a teaspoon-sized pile of the Purifying Mud Mask in a bowl. Add a dash of water, stir your mixture into a paste, then apply. Do you start with broad strokes beneath the eyes, like some warrior princess? A dab atop your chakra, under your bangs? A light brush down your cheeks, where a thick film compromises your selfie-ready radiance? It's up to you.
The countdown to removal is a slice of bliss, so give yourself permission to daydream. A minute passes, then five. You feel your complexion firm and exhale as a palpable dose of serenity enters the picture, courtesy of french rose clay. There are few things on this green or glacial planet that decongest pores and soak up surplus oils like this cool bit of solace.
Naturally, we played matchmaker and paired it with the topical equivalent of a soulmate—rhassoul clay. This precious ingredient harnesses some of the best beautifying minerals around, infusing skin (ever-so-gently) with a surge of skin-nourishing silica, magnesium, potassium, and calcium. They’re the invisible and not-so-secret ingredients that lend your sun-drunk skin newfound texture and smoothness.
Oh, and it's completely okay to look a little silly as you layer this mask on. It's almost required, actually. Grant our Purifying Mud Mask maximum seep-in time as steam fills the bathroom and your mirror becomes good and foggy. Stick your tongue out, grin with pseudo-growling gusto, and then draw a heart around your steamy reflection. All love starts at self-love, right?
