Beauty Tip No. 10: Channeling Ancient Beauty with Clay Masks


When it comes to beauty, we always believe that anything time tested is a gem for our skincare routine. Facial masks have been used for thousands of years, dating all the way back to Ancient Greece where women would make different masks out of clay, honey, olive oil, and other beautifying ingredients found in the natural world. The ancient Romans would sprinkle their gorgeous Roman baths with jasmine, saffron, and lilies, while using crushed rose petals and mulberry juice to stain their cheeks as a natural blush. 

While we can’t go back in time, we can find ways to be inspired by these ancient beauty routines and bring some of their magic into our modern day life. Our Pink Clay Exfoliating Mask is made with French pink clay for skin cell reneweal and rejuvenation. It’s also blending with Rosehip and Chamomile Flowers which soothe inflammed skin. Blending a facial mask with a facial mist can help add even more healing benefits to this skincare ritual! Our Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Facial Mist channels Polynesian beauty with nourishing coconut water, divinely-scented hibiscus flower, and ultra-hydrating rose water.


How To: 

After cleansing your skin, mix ½–1 tbsp. of Pink Clay with a few sprays of Rose Hibiscus Facial mist, until a nice paste is formed. Apply to face and let dry. Wash off.
