Premature Aging Facial Mask RecipePremature Aging Facial Mask Recipe

We recently have created some new homemade facial mask recipes. We made each of these with a different purpose in mind for the skin. This one in particular that we will be talking about today is for skin that is aging prematurely. Aging happens to all types of skin, in any stage of life, and it could be experienced by both men and women. We at Natures Garden carry a plethora of herbs and powders such as rose hips powder and carrot powder. These herbs have been used in many of the recipes found on the Natures Garden website. Our herbs and powders are highly versatile in cosmetic products, and we wanted to show how they can be utilized in products like face masks, starting with this premature aging facial mask recipe!

Dead Sea Clay Powder
Rose Hips POWDER
Camu Camu Fruit POWDER

First, you should clean and sanitize your work area and all of your packaging materials. We also suggest that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.

Why Facial Masks Are GreatWhy Facial Masks Are Great

Exfoliating, moisturizing, and taking care of your skin, in general, is very important and it should be a daily routine. In everyday life and through nearly any activity, your skin will attract all sorts of bacteria. This can, unfortunately, lead to clogged pores, impurities, acne, and toxins entering the skin. One thing that can help with these skin issues is using a facial mask. There are so many different kinds of face masks out there that cater to all types of skin. If you have skin that is on the dryer side, you might enjoy our Pumpkin Face Mask. If you want to remove blackheads, try using our homemade Activated Charcoal Facial Mask. Establishing a daily skincare routine can really improve the health of your skin. If you are washing your face every day and moisturizing the surfaces of your body, it will really help to heal your skin!

Background on the Recipe PowdersBackground on the Recipe Powders

Before we begin, you might like to know a little bit of background information on the five powders we will be using. We carry plenty of herbs and powders at Natures Garden which have many beneficial properties to them. Understanding the certain elements each can bring will help you decide which ones to use in your items. There are also some additional recipes on our website that use these powders.

Dead sea clay powder:Dead sea clay powder:

This comes in grey and green shades. This is a powder that is mined from ancient sea floors, including the Dead Sea. Additionally, this powder is also rich in many nutrients, including calcium, potassium, iron, and aluminum, which nourish the skin. Dead sea clay also exfoliates and removes dead skin cells and any toxins. This was also used in our recipe for mechanics soap.

Rose hips powder:Rose hips powder: 

These come from wild roses. They also contribute to anti aging, brightening and moisturizing the skin, and may help with acne issues. Rose hips have high levels of vitamins A, E, D, and C. Each of these qualities make it an ideal herbal powder to add to cosmetics. Check it out in our foaming rose petal bath bombs recipe!

Camu camu powder:Camu Camu powder:

Camu camu is another powder that contains many vitamins, such as vitamin B1, B2, B3, and C. It also has many essential amino acids and antioxidants. This is a great powder to use in cosmetics for premature aging, dark patches, and scarring. In addition, you can try our blueberry bath bomb or acai berry smoothie sugar scrub!

Noni fruit powder:Noni fruit powder:

This type of powder is great to use in soap and other body products. Noni fruit originates from Tahiti and has actually been named the queen of all health plants. This is because it contains approximately twenty amino acids, along with minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants. It is fantastic for health benefits and the health and elasticity of the skin. Some of these properties are shown through our lavender fizzy bath recipe.

Carrot powder:Carrot powder:

This herbal powder is very beneficial to the skin. It helps repair, tone, reduce scars, and it contains many vitamins as well. In addition, it has calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus. A great thing about this powder is that it can naturally color your cosmetic recipes orange. Another recipe we have with carrot powder is a facial mask that you will see from Natures Garden, which helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Weigh Out the Dead Sea ClayWeigh Out the Dead Sea Clay

For the first step, we need to get out a large mixing bowl and our scale for weighing. Each of the powder ingredients need to be measured out to ensure accuracy. First, add 224 grams of the dead sea clay powder to your mixing bowl.

Incorporate the Other PowdersIncorporate the Other Powders

Next, once again, using your scale, weigh out the rest of the powders individually. To the same medium sized bowl, add in the rose hips powder, camu camu powder, noni fruit powder, and the carrot powder. Whichever order you want to add these is up to you, the order really does not matter in this step. Once everything is in the mixing bowl, mix all of it together. You can either use a mixing spoon or your hands for this step. We prefer using our hands so that we are able to break up any clumps in the mixture and to make sure that everything gets evenly dispersed.

Add in the Vitamin E OilAdd in the Vitamin E Oil

Now, you will need to get out a couple of disposable pipettes. First, you can get out the Vitamin E Oil. The version of this oil that Natures Garden carries is called Tocopherol T-50, which is the purest form. Many cosmetic recipes call for at least a small amount of vitamin e oil, this is because vitamin E will help slow oxidation. So, dip one of the disposable pipettes into the bottle and add 24 drops of it to the powder mixture.

Integrate the Amyris Essential OilIntegrate the Amyris Essential Oil

In this next step, you will need to grab another disposable pipette. You will dip it into the bottle of the amyris essential oil and add 32 drops of it into the mixture you have so far. Amyris essential oil originates from Haiti. This is often added to perfumes as a fixative in order to extend the fragrant life of a blend. It provides soothing qualities as well. After this is added, all of the ingredients for the recipe have been added! Give your mixture a final stir and mix the ingredients together with either a spoon or a spatula.

Scoop the Mixture into the JarsScoop the Mixture into the Jars

Once you have given the powder a final mix, the powdered portion of the recipe is completed. Next, grab the four jars along with their lids. You should have four 4 oz. clear jars. Take a spoon, spatula, measuring cup, or whatever you want to use and begin scooping the powder into each of the jars. Finally, once they are full, place a lid on each one.

Make the Vegetable Glycerin BottlesMake the Vegetable Glycerin Bottles

Since your powdered portion is now finished, you can get your 1 oz. clear bullet bottles ready to go. Fill each of these up with 12 grams of the vegetable glycerin. Once you have them all filled up, place a white ribbed lid on each bullet bottle.

Using Your Anti-Aging Facial Mask

When you are ready to go and use your brand new facial mask, you are going to need a small bowl or container. To the bowl, add in one tablespoon of the powder mixture, two tablespoons of regular water, and about 1/2 teaspoon of the vegetable glycerin from the separate bottle. This is the formula for making each face mask from your jars. Use a spoon and mix it all together well until it is smooth. However, depending on if you prefer a thin or a thick facial mask, you would incorporate more or less water to the bowl.

Preservatives in Face Masks

We wanted to mention something that is important to know in cosmetic products. When it comes to making things such as facial masks, they will require a preservative. This is because the product will not last longer than a couple of days without one. It can mold, it will develop bacteria, and other things may develop on it. Preservatives prevent that from happening and allow for a longer shelf life. We want to say that we purposely chose to package the powder portion and the vegetable glycerin separately from one another. For that reason, this facial mask no longer requires a preservative to make it last.

Instead, when you are ready to use them, you will need to create the individual masks by adding in the water and vegetable glycerin. This method allows you to prepare a quicker product to sell to your customers, increases the shelf life, and avoids bacteria from growing. Each of the four ounce jars will give you approximately 8 facial masks. We hope that you enjoyed following along and making our brand new premature aging facial mask recipe!

Powders for Facial Products

Finally, we found a website that we think our customers will find helpful and useful. This website for Fecund Herbals posted a blog about 3 Great Reasons to Use Powdered Facial Products, written by the owner of the company, Katya Herb. We thought this could be a great link to check out for all of you who are interested in make up! She proposes that buying or making powdered make up products as opposed to liquid ones is much better. The great reasons she provides are longevity, the economy, and the flexibility of them. Katya talks about making products without water so that they last longer, getting twice the value by purchasing powders, and being able to mix them with a variety of ingredients depending on your skin, such as honey.
