Lordship Bean Facial & Bath Cleanser Powder

What’s wrong with using soap on your face?

Most facial washes are soap-based and strip the skin of its own beneficial oils. This can cause imbalances and underlying skin issues over time – dry skin gets drier and oily skin overcompensates by producing too much oil.

Cleansing grains and beans are suitable for all skin types and gentle enough for daily use. The simple blend of clay, beans, oats, and soothing botanicals will naturally cleanse, soothe, and soften skin. As you use cleansing beans, you’ll notice an improved tone and texture in your skin as they help retain the balance of moisture and gently exfoliate.

Facial Cleanser Powder for All Skin Types

Here is a rundown of the ingredients and their benefit/purpose in this facial cleanser:

Oats – Cleansing, soothing, moisturizing

Clay – Helps tighten skin, absorbs/removes toxins, smoothes skin

Almonds – Slight exfoliant, smoothes skin

Dried Flowers – Rose, lavender, and calendula flowers were chosen for their healing, soothing, and moisturizing properties

Lavender Essential Oil – Lavender is the most versatile oil and perfect for any skin type, including dry, sensitive, acne prone, irritated and inflamed, or oily

To Use as a Daily Facial Cleanser

Combine about 1/2 – 1 teaspoon of cleansing beans in the palm of your hand with several drops of water – enough to make a thin paste. (Any water introduced into the jar will cause beans to go bad – this is why a shaker top is perfect. You can also dip into grains with a clean, dry wooden or plastic scoop to extend the shelf life.) Massage onto wet skin (avoiding eyes), then rinse with water.

To Use as a Weekly Mask

For a mask, mix a few teaspoons of cleansing beans with a little water – enough to make a thick paste. Massage onto skin and leave for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with warm water before the mask dries on your face.

For an extra treat you can replace the water in this mask with pure aloe

Turmeric is both antiseptic and antibacterial, and has for many years been used both topically and internally for medical purposes. Honey is commonly used as a salve on open wounds, because when it comes into contact with body fluids it will slowly release hydrogen peroxide – this, in combination with its slight acidity, will kill bacteria and prevent infection. Turmeric also contains antioxidants, and is long believed to have many healing effects.

Nutmeg has long been used therapeutically to calm the mind and relax the body. Nutmeg oil has been used in aromatherapy to reduce headaches, clear the sinuses, and lighten a depressed mood. It is also thought to have antimicrobial properties.

Used in Europe skin care regimens for centuries, Lordship beans contain a natural foaming agent that helps cleanse pores by absorbing excess oils, removing dirt and dead skin cells, drawing out impurities and promoting circulation.

    How to Use

    Directions: 

  • Simple Facial Scrub: Place about 1/2 teaspoon of powder in your palm. Add a few drops of warm water--enough to form a paste. Apply to wet face with wet fingertips, gently scrubbing in small circles, avoiding eye area. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Optional--before drying, splash with a bit of cool water to close the pores.
  • The Simple Facial Scrub is great all by itself. If you like to experiment--there are many ways to use our versatile Lordship Beans Facial & Bath Powder!

  • Facial Mask: In a small bowl, mix 2 to 3 tablespoons of powder with 1 to 3 teaspoons of water. Apply mixture to your face and allow the paste to remain on face until it dries a bit (about 10 minutes) and gently rinse. Fun Tip---replace the water with green tea, yogurt, pure aloe vera gel or for extra moisturizing--one of our facial oils!

  • Exfoliate & Moisturize: Make a paste with the Lordship Beans powder and warm water. Add a dollop of your favorite Chagrin Valley moisturizer, face oil or olive oil, massage and rinse.

  • Exfoliate & Cleanse Bath: 
  • Rather than rushing through another quick shower, take 20 minutes out of your day to soak in a warm bath.

    The healing properties trapped in the herbs and released by the water can help boost your mood, calm the mind, soothe sore muscle and joints, opens pores, soften skin, and promote a more restful sleep.
