Dandelion Face Grains
By Aster & Bay
Dandelion Face Grains is a blend of delicate botanical exfoliants chosen for their unique anti-inflammatory and skin-soothing properties. Made with clays, resins, roots, flowers, and grains.
The star of this exfoliating powder, dandelion root is packed with vitamins and minerals. It is an excellent treatment for drawing toxins, soothing inflammation, eliminating blemishes, and brightening dark spots.
Although designed to be mixed with Aster & Bay's Cleansing Oil, these grains can be added to any liquid to form a mask or a gentle scrub. Simply mix with your chosen liquid (see below for suggestions).
To use: Put a small amount of the grains into a clean bowl. Add water or cleansing oil and mix until you reach the desired consistency (if it does not spread easily, you may need to add more liquid). Apply to the face and gently scrub in light, circular motions. Can be left on the face for 5-10 minutes as a mask. Rinse with warm water, follow with toner and serum.
Water, for a more astringent and detoxifying treatment.
Whole milk (or cream) for a more nourishing, hydrating treatment.
Plain yogurt for a cooling, calming treatment.
Fruit juice (aloe, apple, grape, blueberry, etc.) for a brightening, slightly more exfoliating treatment.
Warm herbal tea (chamomile works great) for a soothing treatment. - Add some raw honey to any of the above liquids for extra skin softening and healing action.
