Flowers + earthen clays gently exfoliate, smooth and tone the skin without stripping your natural oils.
Kaolin clay: A mild clay that helps to stimulate circulation while gently exfoliating. It will not draw oils from the skin leaning itself a good go to for drier skin types.
Chamomile: Universally loved for its calming and soothing properties internally and externally. This is due to its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. Exfoliating skin gently to reveal a softer more supple complexion.
Lavender: Known to create calmness and composure with its pleasant scent. Finely powdered lavender will masque your problems away, emotionally? Might be a tall order from such a small luxury, but being proactive will gain positive results. This is from personal experience of course and could require a bottle of wine, or tea, maybe coffee? Pick your vice. Wait, where was I? Externally its properties soothe and relax inflamed skin promoting rapid and reparative healing.
Maca: Maca has been playing low key when it comes to skincare. Loaded with nutrients and vitamins including B1, B2, C and E, along with minerals and trace elements. It has been studied to promote elasticity and help maintain suppleness. Have you noticed that a lot of Willow & Oak tonics have this running theme? I’m just saying, life is ROUGH, so these little luxuries are the business and help to keep us looking fresh and feeling motivated. Who does not want a radiant complexion? Come on now. MACA!
Rose: Ahhh, rose. Packed with antioxidants and vitamin C to keep our skin glowing. Great for all skin types as the rose is a great equalizer. Balances excess sebum, gentle enough for dry and sensitive types and it rejuvenates and hydrates.
How to use:
Start with 1 tsp. (depending on the area you are working on, more may be needed) Mix with equals parts or a little less liquid of choice. Apply to the area and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Gently dry the skin.
Please note that you do not need a lot of powder to do the job. DO NOT get editorial with this mask to create an opaque and thick look. A sheer finish is suffice to get the job done.
