Make Up Remover Balm: With clean, dry hands, scoop out a small amount of balm and warm between your fingers. Apply balm onto dry skin in a forward circular motion to lift away makeup. Massage for between 30 seconds to two minutes. If you have eye makeup on, lightly massage the eye area until the makeup starts to break down. Use a clean damp cloth to wipe away. Take your clean and soft face to the kitchen and pour yourself a glass of wine or tea. Know you are Amazing.
Licorice Love: Use a small amount of water to make a rich scrub and exfoliate, use more water to achieve a thinner consistency to gently clean your face, or leave on to dry in the desired texture to use as a mask and draw out toxins and oils. For specific troublesome areas, or blemishes, use a small amount of water to make a rich paste and apply to wet skin. Leave on for about 5-10 minutes to use as poultice (herbal mask) about twice daily for persistent redness and troublesome areas. Wash off with warm water and follow immediately with an oil, butter or salve. If using Licorice Love to assertively calm a particularly itchy or red area, it may work best for you to add as much water as you can before it becomes too runny to leave on. The longer the licorice is on the skin, the longer it has to share its love. That said, we have to watch out for irritating the area with too long of a treatment, so as always, pay attention to your skin.
Magic Face Potion: After cleansing with Licorice Love, place 5-10 drops onto fingertips and massage together. Gently press oil onto clean and still moist face and neck. If applying to dry skin, mix with a few drops of pure or herbal water from Take a Breather steam in the palm of your hand before applying. If your skin is extra thirsty, use a little more. Listen to your skin, it will tell you how much it needs. Absorbs beautifully and differently than an emulsified lotion, give it 30 extra seconds. If it does not absorb, please reduce amount of application next time and remove excess with a gentle face cloth.
