‘This is Me’ Face Mask
This is is Me is an exfoliating Face Scrub and Mask made with Hibiscus powder, repurposed from our Hibiscus Teas.
Hibiscus is described by dermatologists as Nature’s Botox, and is a natural source of plant-derived Alpha-hydroxy acids which gently exfoliate dead skin cells. Known for its high level of antioxidants, the Hibiscus flower is also rich in anthocyanocides which cleanse and soothe the skin whilst helping to increase its elasticity. As if Hibiscus wasn’t enough of a miracle flower, it’s also a natural humectant. So instead of a product that strips and dries out your skin, This is Me will deeply hydrate your skin and keep the moisture locked in.
For me, This is Me is personal. With my own history of ingrown facial hair and scarring, I needed a natural product that was gentle enough for my sensitive skin, but effective enough to deal with my skin concerns.
So we also incorporated Honey for its anti-bacterial, antiseptic and humectant properties, Liquorice root powder to tackle hyperpigmentation, and soothing Oat flour and Red sandalwood powder to reduce blemishes and even complexion.
Instructions: To exfoliate and rejuvenate your skin, pour half a teaspoon of ‘This is Me’ into your hand. Add a few drops of water and mix into a paste.
To use as a scrub, apply to wet face in a gentle, circular motion. Rinse off immediately or for best results, rinse after 5-10 minutes.
To use as a mask, mix into a bowl. Apply a thick layer to wet face with a mask brush. Leave on for at least 10 minutes before rinsing off. Use this botanical mask twice a week for luminous, moisturised skin.
