To use as a cleanser apply ACTIVATE to damp skin. Massage to exfoliate, cleanse and nourish. Use circular, upward motions starting with the extremities and moving toward the heart. Although ACTIVATE should not stain, we recommend standing out of the water to avoid splatter and to concentrate product on your skin. It can also be applied as a mask prior to bathing. Massage onto dry skin and allow 3-10 minutes for product penetration before rinsing in the shower or bath. ACTIVATE is a welcome addition to warm baths and steamy showers during cold and allergy season as the steam will help volatilize the therapeutic oils of eucalyptus, balsam fir and palo santo.
