Quick Exfoliant: Sprinkle 1/2 tsp of Almond Exfoliant in with your Cleanser for an exfoliating cleanser. Or to use as a quick exfoliant alone, moisten face and hands. Place 1/2 tsp in palm and trickle in a few more drops of water. Massage and exfoliate over skin and rinse. Use 2-3x per week.
Exfoliating/Hydrating Mask: Put 1/2 tsp Almond Exfoliant into a small dish. Trickle in a bit of water with your fingers until its just slightly runny. Allow to steep and thicken for a few minutes. The mask will thicken to a rich oatmeal consistency. Pat and massage onto skin to exfoliate. Leave on for 10-20 more minutes, then rinse. Follow with Elixir and Serum.

Science: Hyaluronic Acid, B Vitamins and Polysaccharides! These are some popular isolates for hydrating the skin. Luckily for us, they can all be found in plants, and are incredibly concentrated in many grains, roots and petals. Ingredients like those found in this Exfoliant: Oats, Marshmallow, and Rose Petals are all ones that are truly beyond compare for their ability to thoroughly hydrate the skin.
Ritual: Skin care rituals can be as lengthy and in depth or as simple and short as you make them. This is one product that we make that is quite versatile and can be used quickly and simply or as a long drawn out ritual. I love to reap all the benefits possible from these superfood ingredients, so I like to carefully steep my mask as it turns into an oatmeal consistency. This draws out many nutrients making them even more available for my skin. I pat it onto my skin and gently exfoliate minimally during application. I then allow it to sit on my skin for 10+ minutes. Before removing I exfoliate more thoroughly prior to rinsing.
