    • A.M. OR P.M.:

    Use morning or night. Apply a small amount to your fingertips and massage onto damp skin in a circular motion. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry. Gentle enough for daily use.

    RealSelf tips:
    • Masks like these are great for combination skin; apply only to the areas of your face that get extra oily, such as the T-zone.

    • This formula is gentle enough for daily use, but if your skin is on the dryer side, you may want to use it only a few times per week.

    • Make sure to apply a moisturizer after any type of exfoliation, to avoid overdrying your skin. Those with oily or acne-prone skin should stick with lightweight, oil-free formulas.

    • Activated charcoal: An excellent detoxifying ingredient, activated charcoal binds to and removes dirt, oil, and other toxins that can get trapped in the skin.

    • Wakame: This unique seaweed is rich in magnesium and potassium, a powerful antioxidant clinically proven to help protect the skin from environmental pollution.

    • Bladderwrack: Another antioxidant-rich seaweed, this has the added benefit of helping to keep skin hydrated, thanks to its water-binding properties.

    • Green Tea: Also a potent antioxidant, green tea offers excellent protection from damaging free radicals.
