Royal Jelly plays a leading role in this rejuvenating facial mask. Packed with beneficial components such as collagen, lecithin, hydroxy fatty acids, and vitamins A, C, D, and E, it makes an excellent anti-aging ingredient. Royal Jelly can help to soothe, moisturize, and nourish the skin, even when used at a very small percentage. The typical usage rate of Royal Jelly Powder is between 1 – 3%. The Queen Bee Facial Mask also contains Honey Powder, which helps to cleanse and soften the skin. Yellow Illite Clay adds extra drawing power to this mask, making it both cleansing and nourishing. Soothing Chamomile Flower Powder adds some extra absorbency to the facial’s texture, while Blackberry Seed Oil and Carrot Seed Oil provide extra nutrients and anti-aging benefits. The mask is wetted with Cistus Hydrosol, which can help to plump the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The Queen Bee Facial Mask
1 tablespoon Honey Powder
1/2 teaspoon Royal Jelly Powder
1 tablespoon Yellow Illite Clay
2 teaspoons Chamomile Flower Powder
5 drops Helio Carrot Root CO2 Total Extract
1/2 teaspoon Blackberry Seed Oil
1 – 2 teaspoons Cistus (Labdanum) Hydrosol
In a small mixing bowl, combine the Honey Powder, Royal Jelly Powder, Yellow Illite Clay, and Chamomile Flower Powder. Mix well, then add the Helio Carrot Root CO2 Total Extract, followed by the Blackberry Seed Oil. Mix again, than slowly add the Cistus Hydrosol. Add just enough Hydrosol to form a smooth, spreadable paste. You may need to add a little more or less than indicated here, depending on your own preference.
Begin the facial by applying a warm, moist towel to your face, or by performing a facial steam. Apply directly to the face, avoiding the mouth, eyes, and nostrils. This mask can also be applied to the neck and decollatage. Allow the mask to dry for approximately 10 minutes before rinsing with room temperature water. Follow with a toner and moisturizer for best results.
