Recipe Box: Purifying Mask for Mature Complexions

Written by   Elina Fedotova, formulator and CEO of Elina Organics

This soothing mask combines the anti-aging properties of red clover, a great source of phytoestrogens, with the calming, healing effects of chamomile. In this treatment, these herbs are combined with rose hydrosol and the nourishing phytonutrients provided by sea buckthorn oil. When mixed with the white clay’s ability to draw out impurities, these ingredients help detoxify and rejuvenate the skin.

1/4 teaspoon of powdered red clover blossoms
1/4 teaspoon of powdered chamomile flowers
2 teaspoons of kaolin (white) clay
1/2 teaspoon of sea buckthorn oil
Rose hydrosol (flower water)
*If you like, you can substitute powdered red clover and chamomile with tea made from these botanicals.

Combine the powdered red clover blossoms, chamomile flowers, and the sea buckthorn oil with enough rose hydrosol to make a paste.

To Use:
Leave on for five to eight minutes. For personal treatments, simply rinse the mask off. With clients, gently remove with warm compresses.
