Pro Tips:

1. When making a DIY face wash, avoid using alcohols, potent essential oils, fragrances, or abrasive materials such as pumice or walnut shells.

2. We recommend using warm water to wash off a DIY face mask. When wearing makeup, make sure you remove it with micellar water or cleansing milk first, and then use your cleanser. Follow it up with an ultra-hydrating face moisturiser to lock in the hydration.
