Science: It is true that your skin can only absorb so much oil. If a product is seeming to not absorb into your skin – whether it be a facial oil or a facial balm – consider first that you might simply be using too much. A facial cream is always approximately 70% water; this is just how all emulsifiers work. In a cosmetic emulsion, the water has to be dominant at well over 60%, typically closer to 70-80%. When you are switching to a Balm or Oil from a Cream, it is important to consider this information and use only 1/4 of what you would normally expect to use with a cream. Balms and Serums are dramatically concentrated by comparison to normal commercial skin care. If you are looking to reduce that shiny glow, then simply use less product.
Ritual: This Balm can be used as a mask, and I highly recommend it! Many of you with oily skin express that you would love to benefit from the phytonutrient content and actions of this product, but you don’t want to wear a Balm everyday. This Balm can also be used as a nutrient dense superfood mask. Simply apply to the skin in a rich thick layer, and massage away. I recommend a deep facial massage to release muscle tension followed by a light lymph massage to promote downward toxin drainage. Leave on for 10-30 minutes. Use a warm steamy towel to remove any excess Balm, and GLOW!
