Deep Pore Honey Matcha Cleanser

Here in Ontario, we are getting hit with very hot, humid weather. Spending the day out and about, particularly in cities, leaves our skin feeling congested and sticky. We head straight to our Honey Matcha Cleanser when we walk through the door at the end of the day; it pulls the smog, sweat and dirt out of our pores and leaves us feeling refreshed and detoxified. 

  1. In a mortar and pestle, combine 5 drops Oily Skin Synergy with 1 tbsp Matcha Powder, 1 tbsp Green Clay & 1 tsp Jojoba Beads. Mix thoroughly and transfer into a jar (this mixture can be stored in a dry place).
  2. In a small bowl stir together 1 tbsp of your Powder Mixture and 1 tbsp of Natural, Liquid Honey. This should create a nice, thick paste.
  3. To use, first spritz your face with Rose Bulgarian Hydrosol.
  4. Gently massage your Honey Matcha Cleanser into damp skin, creating small circular motions. 
  5. Allow your cleanser to sit on the skin for 5 minutes before rinsing with warm and then cold water. 

 

Calming Kaolin Face Mask

For us, summertime means outdoor time! Our precious chance to bike, hike, canoe, or just sit outside soaking up some much-needed vitamin D. The elements of summer can be harsh on the skin, between the extreme heat and the sun, many of us experience redness and inflammation. This face mask is our key to calm. 

  1. In a mortar and pestle, combine 5 drops Sensitive Skin Synergy with 1 tbsp White Kaolin and 1 tbsp Oat Flour. Mix thoroughly and transfer into a jar (this mixture can be stored in a dry place).
  2. In a small bowl stir together 1 tbsp of your Powder Mixture and 1 tbsp of Natural, Liquid Honey. This should create a nice, thick paste.
  3. To use, first spritz your face with Roman Chamomile Hydrosol.
  4. Gently massage your Kaolin Facial Mask onto damp skin. 
  5. Allow your mask to sit for 15 minutes before rinsing. 

 

Get that Glow Facial Toner

This toner is great for all skin types at any time of year, but it’s our favorite for these hot, muggy days. The ingredients in this recipe are the best for brightening and balancing skin tone, while keeping the skin clear and radiant. Store your Toner in the fridge and get that glow every time you spritz ;)

  1. Place 30 drops Glowing Skin Synergy directly into a 100 ml bottle of Rose Bulgarian Hydrosol
  2. Shake well and enjoy!

 

Light & Luxurious Hydrating Elixir

For those with combination skin, summer can be a challenging time; finding the balance between hydration and clear pores is tricky. This Hydrating Elixir uses our most moisturizing Skincare Synergy in a very light and easily absorbed base, it strikes the perfect balance between nourishment and detoxification. 

  1. Place 15 drops Dry Skin Synergy into the bottom of an empty 50 ml Lotion Bottle.
  2. Fill the bottle with Aloe Vera Gel and shake well.
  3. Apply to clean skin in the morning and evening.

On days where you feel more moisture is required: Add a small squirt of Evening Primrose Oil to the Elixir in the palm of your hand before applying it.
