As you might already know, here at Moroccan Natural we love natural and organic ingredients and we believe that chemicals and stabilizers are unnecessary. One of our mottoes is "don't use anything that you wouldn't eat"! That's why a new rumour about one of the world's biggest stars recently grabbed my attention.
Nowadays it's all about glowy and plumpy skin and apparently, Madonna found a new way to temporarily plump up her skin's appearance using a one-ingredients mask: pure honey.
Honey is a delicious ingredient but not only. This sweet substance produced by bees is a natural anti-bacterial, helps the healing acne scars and burns and promotes the production of immune cells. Immagine, honey has been used in Ayurvedic medicine in India for at least 4000 years and is considered to affect all three of the body’s primitive material imbalances positively. It is also said to be useful in improving eyesight, weight loss, curing impotence and premature ejaculation, urinary tract disorders, bronchial asthma, diarrhoea, and nausea.
Although honey is a well-known skincare ingredient, Madonna’s method is one hadn’t heard about before. During her interview with Refinery29, she explained her unique technique: she applies a thin, even layer of honey all over her face, lets it dry for a few minutes - so it becomes “extra sticky” - and then rapidly taps the surface with her fingertips.
Since honey acts like sticky glue on your skin, everytime that you tap and your fingers leave its surface, the skin underneath lifts up too. This technique promotes blood circulation, skin oxygenation and radiance.
We decided to give a little twist to Madonna DIY honey treatment and I guess you know which one is our secret ingredients: Pearl Powder!
Pearl Powder will give you that extra glow and plumpiness thanks to conchiolin. This protein, found in pearls, is what promotes healthy collagen production which gives your skin that glowing appearance.
Here the only two ingredients you're going to need: Raw Honey and Pure Pearl Powder.
Using a mixing bowl, add one or two pearl-sized amount of Pearl Powder to one or two tablespoons of raw honey. You don't have to buy the most expensive honey, just go for the one that is 100% natural, organic honey. Now that you have a nice and smooth mask, apply it to your face and decollate and let it dry for 10-15 minutes or until you feel the right stickness. When your mask is ready, start to gently tap all over your face and neck to promote blood circulation and radiance.
When you're ready just remove the mask with a damp cloth. To boost the glowing, healthy effect, apply a few drops of oil mixed with Pearl Powder.
Now just glow!
