All Natural Rose Water & Matcha Face Wash
Crafting natural skin-care products made out of REAL FOOD might be one of my favorite past times. It's no surprise that when creating my latest all natural face wash I chose to use ingredients like rose water, Matcha, and honey!
Why do I love smearing food on my face? Because your face absorbs around 100% of what you apply to it! I can think of nothing better than applying ingredients that are healthy for you internally externally.
Matcha is a is a powerful antioxidant that has been used in Japan for thousands of years. It's made form a whole green tea leaf that's stone grounded into a fine powder. Matcha is the perfect addition to any mask or face wash because it prevents and removes acne, prevents from sun damage, reduces puffiness and evens your complexion.
Organic Rose Water is an ingredient I include in my face masks whenever possible. In fact, if the recipe requires water, I always use rose water! It's perfect for toning the face, neck, eye area, and dry skin! It balances pH levels, acne prone skin, and dark marks. This botanical astringent is perfect for all skin types.
Manuka honey is my go-to ingredient to use in all masks and cleansers! With medicinal and healing properties it's best known for healing acne and scarring, fighting infections, cleaning pores while gently exfoliating, and moisturizing, softening and rejuvenating skin. It is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and extremely high in antioxidants. I usually purchase mine at Trader Joe’s but it can also be found on Amazon.
Avocado Oil derived from my favorite fruit ever- the avocado- is rich in fatty acids, heals and softens cracked skin, calms itchy skin, acts as a natural sunblock and it is perfect for dry or aging skin by adding moisture.
Castile Soap is a soap naturally derived from olive oil that serves as gentle cleanser without clogging your pores or stripping your skin of his natural oils.
For added benefits, I turned to another ingredient that I've also been using on my face for years- Geranium essential oil. Geranium essential oil is amazing at is an age-defying powerhouse that prevents sagging, reduces wrinkles, fights infections and heals acne.
