Red Raspberry Facial Mask

This fresh mask is great for combination skin.  The Organic Honey Powder acts as an antiseptic to help fight acne and oily patches while Organic Red Raspberry Oil, which is rich in antioxidants and fatty acids, nourishes the skin.  Gentle Pink Kaolin Clay provides deep cleansing action without over-drying.  Our main wetting agent in this mask is Neroli Hydrosol, a gentle, but effective astringent with a sweet fruity and floral aroma.  This recipe makes about a third of a cup (or about 3 ounces) of mask.  You can share with a friend or two when you make this up or you can store the remaining mask, sealed tightly in your refrigerator for 3 – 5 days.  As with all natural formulations, the mask will run the risk of becoming contaminated or going rancid  prematurely without a preservative added.  Discard your mask if it changes color, odor or if appears “off” in any other way.


Red Raspberry Facial Mask

2 tablespoons Pink Kaolin Clay or Rose Clay
2 tablespoons Raspberry Seed Powder
1 tablespoon Honey Powder
1/2 ounce Neroli Hydrosol
1/8 ounce Organic Red Raspberry Seed Oil

In a small mixing bowl, combine the Pink Kaolin Clay, Raspberry Seed Powder, and Honey Powder.  Stir the ingredients together, making sure to break up any clumps.  Next, add the Neroli Hydrosol and Red Raspberry Seed Oil.  Stir the mixture thoroughly, forming a smooth paste.

Before applying the mask, gently open your pores by dabbing your skin with a warm, damp towel.  This mask can also be used on your neck, shoulders or any other problem zones.  Allow the mask to dry for about ten minutes before rinsing it away.  The Fruit Seed Powder makes a great exfoliant so be sure to gently massage the mask onto your skin before rinsing.  Follow the mask with the toner and moisturizer of your choice.

This mask is gentle enough to be used about twice a week.  Please be aware, though, everyone’s skin is different.  If you experience any negative effects from this or any other recipe, discontinue use immediately. Print Bar 2
