Use this lotion during evening skin cleansing. Store it in a cool dark place. Walnut leaves contain cleansing and fat binding substances.

- Massage is also an indispensable assistance. Massage the clean and dried skin with a soft brush made of wool in the morning and evening.

- Yogurt masks are not only useful but also very pleasant. For oily and often inflamed skin do masks made from whole yogurt and milk with a normal fat content.
