We continue our Spring Clean with a look at face masks.
What is a face mask? Consider a face mask as an extra treatment on top of your daily skincare routine. Add a face mask to your weekly routine whether it be as part of your selfcare commitments or whilst you are multitasking (yes you can get the benefits of a face mask whilst doing the hoovering). A face mask is a facial treatment which shall deliver antioxidants as well as refine, smooth and clarify the skin. Our face mask powders also deliver targeted treatments for specific skin types such as activated charcoal and tea tree to treat oily/problem skin.
Why a face mask powder? Our range of face masks are clay based powders. We love our face mask powders because they are formulated with botanical extracts and clay or mud (yes MUD!!!)... kaolin, charcoal, rhassoul mud. Clay based face masks are clarifying, they absorb excess oil from the skin as well as draw out impurities, they clear congested skin and calm breakouts.
How do you activate a face mask powder? This is the most asked question regarding our face mask powders. You activate the face mask powder but adding water to it to make a paste. It takes a little concentration as it needs to be a paste, so add water a little at a time. You can also use natural yoghurt, aloe very juice, honey, floral waters, coconut milk etc.
PRO TIP: Apply your face mask after you have steamed your face. Steaming your face opens your pores which will allow the face mask to draw out the impurities leaving you with glowing, clean skin.
So which face mask powder is for you?
Purifying Face Mask Powder: Activated charcoal and tea tree essential oil come together to deal with problem skin, remove excess oil from the skin and calm breakouts. I deal for oily/teenage skin or skin that is prone to breakouts. Activate with lavender or tea tree floral water to make it a little "extra" and use in conjunction with our Activated Charcoal Cleansing Bar.
Rejuvenating Face Mask Powder: Bring some balance and calm to your skincare routine with geranium rose and patchouli essential oil, ideal for dry/mature skin types. Treat your skin like a Goddess with our Pink Clay Cleansing Bar and our Rejuvenating Facial Oil.
Detoxifying Face Mask Powder: Super cleansing with lemon and grapefruit essential oils to take on dull, lifeless skin head on. Consider this a deep clean for the skin. Kaolin and green clay withdraw impurities and soothe the skin. Create your own spa treatment with our Juniper and Kelp Detox Bath Soak.
Nighttime Face Mask Powder: Clarifying and soothing with a bespoke blend of lavender, chamomile and cedarwood. Ideal for all skin types. Make bedtime, skincare time... cleanse your skin with our Nighttime Cleansing Bar and give your skin a kiss goodnight with our Nighttime Facial Oil.
