Devotion Face Mask
Devote some time to yourself!!
Our DEVOTION face mask is a lovely blend of powdered rose petals and lavender flowers, and gentle white kaolin clay. White kaolin clay can be used on all skin types and does not draw oil from the skin, making it especially ideal for those with dry skin. Rose has long been considered a symbol of beauty in many cultures. In herbal medicine, roses are believed to have anti inflammatory and pain-relieving properties, but it is their delicate floral scent that has made them a household name and a staple in beauty products. Lavender flowers have a sweeter floral scent and have also been used in bath and body products for centuries. In fact, the name came from the Latin word “lavare” which means “to wash” and was given to the plant by the Romans who used it to bathe. Historically, lavender was believed to be antibacterial and antiseptic, so it was used for disinfecting minor cuts and wounds, as well as easing pain and supporting the body's natural healing process. Though lavender is known to help with relaxation, it is actually a gentle stimulant, and a great option for a mood boost without putting you to sleep.
Directions: Always begin your skin routine with a clean face and hands!!!! We recommend steaming your face before applying, to help open up your pores and loosen up stubborn dirt clogged inside them. This can be done by adding boiling water to a bowl, covering your head with a towel, and positioning your face over the bowl for 10-15 minutes. Check out our new REFRESH and RESTORE facial steams for some added benefits! Add a tsp of the mask to a non-metal bowl, slowly add liquid of your choice (see below) until a smooth, clay consistency. Apply a thin layer to face, avoiding eye area, and allow to sit for 15-20 minutes. If you steamed before hand, you can soak up the hot water with a small towel and lay it over the mask. Be careful it's not too hot!! Rinse mask off, apply a toner like ACV or witch hazel (or just splash with cold water), then apply a moisturizer of your choice, like our ROSE GOLD face oil!
What to mix with your mask: There are a few options for what liquid you can add to your face mask! The easiest option is plain old water! This works well for those with sensitive skin. Another choice is apple cider vinegar (ACV). It is a natural toner, softens skin, and helps balance pH. For those who do have more sensitive skin but want to use ACV, try diluting it with water before mixing into your mask. Honey is a tad bit messier, but worth it! It is antibacterial, moisturizing, a gentle exfoliator, and may help lessen redness and clear up blemishes. For dry skin, try adding freshly blended aloe vera juice! Check out our Instagram (@rosies.apothecary) highlights for a how-to video! Other options include: milk, milk substitute, avocado and egg whites. Add a few drops of vitamin e oil or our ROSE GOLD face oil for a silky, extra-lush, nourishing mixture! Your skin will thank you.
