How To Use Pearl Powder On Your Face

I’ve already heard about using pearl powder as a beauty product for many years, but it is until recently that I started to give it a try. Pearl powder has been used by many female impresses of China in the ancient days as a skin care preparation and cosmetic. Today, you can see many Asian cosmetics and creams contain pearl powder. Many People take it internally too, but let’s just stick with what pearl powder can do to your skin for now.

So, what is pearl powder? Pearl powder is actually grinded powder from pearls. There are two types of pearls, sea water pearl and fresh water pearl. Fresh water pearls are more abundant, therefore, less expensive than sea water pearls. But it doesn’t really matter which type of pearl powder you put on your face, it will have the same effect. Just make sure it says “100% pure pearl powder” and nothing else added.  Pearl powder is rich in calcium, protein and vitamins and very high in amino acid, so it is great for all skin types. It helps ease skin inflammation, promotes healing, and enhances elasticity and luminosity.

Recently, I use the pearl powder in 3 different ways:

  1. As a mask. I either mix pearl powder with honey or yogurt, and apply it on my face for anti-aging and also getting rid of acne scars and any kind of redness on my face. It is great for removing blotches and rosacea as well.
  2. I mix pearl powder with my beauty products like foundations and creams. This helps for oil control and also it helps even out my skin tone.
  3. As a finishing touch to my makeup routine. I spread a thin layer of pearl powder on my face with a brush after I’ve done my makeup. This will help to control oil and act as a setting powder. Don’t spread too much, or your face will be too pale and white like a geisha. Oh, and pearl powder helps filter out UV rays and prevent hyperpigmentation too!

After mask or before makeup, don’t forget to apply a thin layer of cream or serum to protect and moisturize your skin!

Add A Little Sweetness To Your Skin

You know that honey is a natural sweetener that has lots of great benefits for the body when taken internally. But did you know that you can also benefit from honey when using it externally? Yes, this amber colored, dewy looking sweetener can do wonders to your skin. Not all honey though, only raw honey contains the most natural vitamins and nutritional elements that are beneficial to your skin. How? Let me tell you a little bit more in detail.

Raw honey is loaded with nutrients, antioxidants, and healing compounds. The thick texture of the honey contains a substance called humectant which attracts moisture from the air and retain the moisture in the skin. This can be very beneficial to dry and itchy skin. Honey is a natural antioxidant, which can protect the skin against sun damages such as premature wrinkling. Honey can also promote healing and prevent infection due to its natural antimicrobial properties.

Now we know the benefits we will get from honey, here are some ways you can use it:

  • DIY honey mask: Spread a thin layer of raw honey on your damp, clean skin and leave it on for at least 20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water leaving you with soft, radiant skin. Apply a serum or cream to enhance the softness and smoothness of your face.
  • Honey acne treatment: This is perfect for people who are prone to breakouts. Swirl a small amount of honey onto a Q-tip and dap onto your blemish. Honey has anti-inflammatory properties that will reduce redness and irritation.
  • Honey cleanser: Mix the honey with either coconut oil or jojoba oil to make a great cleanser that will dissolve some makeup and moisturize your skin at the same time.
  • Honey gentle exfoliator: Mix honey with baking soda and gently rub it on your face or body in a circular motion. Rinse well with warm water leaving your skin clean and smooth.
  • Honey bath: Now this is my favorite! Add a cup of honey to a tub of warm water and soak for about 15 minutes. The antioxidants from the honey will repair and moisturize the skin, leaving your skin feeling fresh and new. Oh! Don’t forget to rinse your body with clean water after soaking. You don’t want your body tasting too sweet attracting unnecessary insects.

Have fun adding a little bit more sweetness to your skin care routine 😉
