The Idea Behind the Acne Mineral Mask from fangocur – A Natural Way to Get Rid of Acne
The skin is thoroughly and deeply cleaned of metabolic waste products. Dead skin is removed, the normal metabolism of the skin is restored, and the active ingredients (sulphur and other elements) work to inhibit the inflammation process. Simply apply in the evening, let it work for 30 minutes (or up to an hour, if you like), and then rinse off with water. No cream or other moisturiser should be used after the treatment – this allows the skin to continue the detoxification process.
If you notice that your skin is uncomfortably dry and you have the feeling that you really need to apply a moisturizer, use only the skin cream intended to supplement treatment with the Acne Mineral Mask: our 100% natural Mineral Cream N°4. Feel free to moisturize the skin in the morning with a high quality natural skin cream – the fangocur Mineral Cream N°4 is ideal for this purpose.
Tip: Through simultaneous use of fangocur Bentomed, an internal detoxification can support and increase the effectiveness of the treatment of acne.
