Should you ever visit an apiary take note the condition of the beekeeper's hands during honey season. Most likely they will be soft and smooth. Honey is a natural humectant which means it retains moisture. Exposure to environmental factors and chemical agents hinder our skin's ability to stay hydrated. Not only does honey help dry skin cells to plump up and wrinkles smooth away, it also contains natural antioxidant properties that aid in skin rejuvenation. Watch minor acne flare-ups disappear as honey's antimicrobial properties hinder bacterial growth.
Roses have long been used in skin care due to their high content of vitamin C and ability to relax both inflammation as well as jangled nerves. Roses remind us of days past when roses were valued for more than just their beauty. They were used in many ways to help women retain beautiful, glowing skin as they age. The Rose essential oils within the petals and buds contain vitamins and minerals for skin nourishment as well as antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties which can help with skin conditions.
Rose Honey Facial Wash combines the beauty aid of a floral honey with another humectant, Glycerin, and the gentle action of Castile soap. Glycerin is a natural product made from Palm oil and is popular in soaps because it doesn't irritate. Glycerin acts as a barrier to lock in moisture, and provides great hydration to the skin In doing so, it helps immensely with dry skin and conditions resulting in itchy dryness.
Geranium essential oil is often a favorite for women. A mood lifter and stress reliever, there is a reason the rose geranium is found in many aromatherapy products for women. Aside from the psychological benefits, geranium oil has been shown to decrease sebum production and return the skin to a normal balance. What that means is that people annoyed with blemishes may find its use beneficial for healing those breakouts.
Don't expect this facial wash to be like what you may be used to in a cleansing face wash. It won't have a sudsy lather because it does not contain any chemicals such as sodium laureth sulfate, which is a foaming agent or inexpensive detergent. Foaming agents are also what they call surfactants. Surfactants reduce the surface tension of water, and by doing that they break up oil and dirt which is then washed away. This is how laundry detergents clean your clothes. The problem with these chemicals being in our soaps and shampoos is that they can irritate the skin and absorb into our bodies. There are alternatives to cleaning your skin without stripping the natural oils.
Castile soap is a basic liquid soap without harsh ingredients that strip delicate skin of its natural oils. Splash warm water on your face to open the pores, massage a bit of wash and rinse. You'll find your face feeling soft and refreshed without that dry, tightness which often follows the use of facial cleansers. Apply a bit of moisturizer if desired and enjoy your glowing complexion.
