If you are acne prone and have clogged pores, this will be great for you! The clay draws the impurities out of the skin and cleanses without drying out your skin. If I’m going to be performing extractions but can’t use steam at the time, I like to mix this in with the Aveda Hydrating Treatment Lotion until it has the consistency of sour cream. Massage the mixture into the skin for a few minutes, and then your pores will be opened up for easier extractions. I would recommend using this once a week, but the gentle formula can be used multiple times a week if you’d like to.
