In Japanese philosophy, cleansing rituals are an essential part of the pursuit of enlightenment. They say that when you clean, you’re not only cleaning in the physical realm, you’re also cleaning on the energetic realm. It gets rid of any energy that is contaminating your environment or having a negative influence on you. Whether it is your space, your body or your heart, the act of purification gets rid of what doesn't bring you joy to make room for what does.
We put a lot of energy in cleansing our skin, making sure our largest organ is as pleasant as possible. A well-loved treatment is the Skin Mud Power Mask, which gives a deep cleanse while softening the top layer of skin. Use it on its own or do a cleansing ritual by pairing it with our other products.
To start, perform a thorough cleanse and exfoliation using DAMDAM Nomad's Cream Purifying Cleanser. Doing this step allows the nourishing effect of the mask be more thoroughly absorbed into the dermal layers of your skin.
After rinsing, apply a thin layer of DAMDAM Skin Mud Power Mask as @gracepiehl does. Leave on for 3-5 minutes, or until mask is dry. While waiting, inhale deeply to breathe in the spicy woody scent of frankincense, to ease feelings of stress. The mask has a faintly cooling effect, refreshing on a summer's day.
Rinse off with warm water or use a steam towel to remove the mask completely. Make sure to pat skin dry. Finish with a few drops of DAMDAM Magic Drops Balancing Oil Serum to bring in a fresh flow of vitality and seal in the moisture of the skin. The smell of jasmine and vetiver is reminiscent of fresh plants in the rain, a little portable world you can escape to for a few minutes.
