What does Dirtea do? How does it work?
To see how Dirtea works you should take a look at the 'About' section of this website where you can read all about how Dirtea aids in clearing skin conditions and skin health.
How do I get Dirtea?
Dirtea should be used to exfoliate 2-3 times weekly. When starting on your course try to leave the scrub on your skin for at least 5 minutes. Ideally the longer you leave the scrub on the better it works.
The consistency of the scrub can vary when you receive it. Simply due to temperature fluctuations during delivery. If it's cold the scrub will be relatively hard but don't worry. Just rub it around in your hands for a little and maybe take a cool photo! :) The gentle consistency on your skin can be a little unexpected at first but you'll soon get used to it and you'll love the benefits.
