How to use it

Use the mask only in the evenings. The citrus oils make the skin photosensitive. This can lead to discoloration or skin burns.

Apply thick layer on clean face avoiding the eye area. Leave for 5-10 min. Rinse with cold water to tighten the pores. Use 2-3 times a week.

How long it lasts

The product will be good for use within a week. Keep in a refrigerator. Before using it, take it out for an hour on a room temperature.

Tips and common mistakes

If you add too much powdered milk, it could be hard to apply the mask on the face. Add more honey to dilute the mixture.
