Description

Hollyhocks help your skin to maintain moisture, leaving your skin feeling soft and supple. It also helps with skin inflammations by soothing and calming the skin. The extract of this plant (which is what the hydrosol is) is known to hydrate the skin, lock in moisture and keep the skin supple and soft.

The non-greasy emollient is known for its softening and smoothing properties, making it a welcome home remedy for dry skin. The extract is also known to give the skin added pliability and elasticity, keeping it young and radiant. On top of all that, hollyhocks are known to be a natural astringent, thus, making the perfect botanical ingredient for a facial toner!

What is standing between you and unclogged pores might be just adding one product into your beauty regime. The secret weapon to healthy skin? Dr. Hadley King, a New York City board-certified dermatologist, had a simple answer: toner. She says not to pile on extra makeup to mask acne and oil problems. Instead, use a gentle, soothing toner to remove oil and traces of dirt and grime. "Toners are most helpful and necessary for people with oily or acne-prone skin, or for individuals who want extra cleansing after wearing makeup or other dense skin products such as sunscreen," she explains.

♦ Shrinks pores
Applying a small amount of toner to a soft cotton ball or pad and gently blotting and wiping your face with it will remove oil and give the appearance of smaller pores.
♦ Balances your skin pH
Skin is naturally acidic, normally with a pH balance of between five and six. After cleansing, due to the alkaline nature of soap, the pH balance of skin gets disturbed. When this happens your skin needs to work overtime to restore the balance (and that may result in oil), but using a toner helps to restore this balance quickly.
♦ Adds a layer of protection
Toners can help close pores and tighten cell gaps after cleansing, thus reducing the penetration of impurities and environmental contaminants into the skin. It can even protect and remove chlorines and minerals present in tap water.
♦ Moisturizes dry skin
Hollyhock toner is a humectant, which means that they help to bind moisture to the skin.
♦ Refreshes skin
Toners can also be used instead of washing your skin when it's oily or dirt. It will leave your skin revitalized, even when you're on-the-go.

Tip:
Add this Hollyhock Hydrosol Toner to Apple Cider Vinegar (1:1) to use as an Herb Based Yellow Hair Toner. You can use this homemade hair toner for fixing yellowish hair, generally obtained after a hair dye. Yellowing of the hair happens when bleach lightens hair color, and the natural pigment shows itself. Based on the natural shade of your hair color, the pigment can be pale yellow to dark red. While many people use food-coloring agents to take on bleached hair, there is a natural alternative to this toning approach. It is ideal if you are uncomfortable using chemicals on your colored hair.
♦ Shampoo the hair and squeeze out excess water.
♦ Then saturate the hair with the Hollyhock Toner mixed with Apple Cider Vinegar
♦ Gently massage the scalp with fingers. Let the vinegar solution remain on hair for at least 5 - 10 minutes.
♦ Rinse with clean water and air dry.

Directions for use:
Shake well before using. Apply a small amount of toner to a soft cotton ball or pad and gently blotting and wiping your face with it will remove oil and give the appearance of smaller pores.

FAQs

There are 2 methods to sugaring
**For beginners & those whose hairs are naturally thick, I always suggest starting with sugaring paste. Once your hairs begin to grow back thinner & sparser (given you've heeded the advice of removing hairs at 1/8" growth Anagen stage with sugaring), then would be a great time to try the sugaring wax.
**For those whose hairs naturally grow thin and/or have been faithful waxers & would like a different, natural alternative, go ahead & try the sugaring wax. You can still use sugaring paste as well.
If you are not certain which way to go you can message me directly and I’ll walk you through picking out the best product for you.
It is possible to become permanently hairless if you sugar yourself correctly and regularly. If and how long it will take you to stay hairless depend on several factors. As every human being is an individual, there are individual hair types, so it could be the case that you stay hairless after a few treatments whereas others may need much more. Also, the method you previously used to remove hair has a strong influence. Hair growth intensity is stronger in some areas of the body than in others; in these areas it will naturally take more treatments.
Use Sugaring Paste at the Anagen stage of growth if your goal is permanency.
Refer to http://www.jbhomemade.com/science-sugaring-leads-to-permanent-hair-removal for more science on the matter.
You should close the container immediately after using the paste. When kept dry and stored at room temperature (65-70 degrees) in a dark place JBHomemade Sugaring Paste and Wax should last at least 12 months.
I can answer in my opinion No way. (Depending on your sensitization, tolerance of pain level, etc., that is.) This answer varies as well.
Variants:
#1 - Length of hair (most people report that the longer the hair is, the more the sugar is felt is the spreading action, but less so in the removal action).**Trim hair to 1/4" for best results for a first time user.
**After the first use, hair can be as short as 1/8" and it is even less painful than the first time because hairs are already finer and sparser.
#2 - Use of corn starch or powder greatly reduces the amount of pain.
#3 - Follow instructions to the tee! Research, watch vids, and see in action before attempting blind. Know what you are doing before you try it.
I have over 30 herbs and flowers I grow in my organic gardens to give you the best of ingredients for my skin care and sugar scrub products. And if I can't grow it - the Amish do! I have a full list of ingredients and their benefits. Are you unsure which herb or flower will best suit your skin and skin's needs? It's not just about scent. You want to think about what that herb or flower can do for your skin. Check out all of the ingredients and take the Natural Skin Care Wish List here: http://www.jbhomemade.com/botanical-skin-care

When it comes to skin care, one can never be too careful. Gone are the days when I will venture to the local drug store or department store and choose my skincare based on the name brand.
Sugaring MUST be stored at room-temperature. Do not store it in the fridge. Close the container tightly and securely so it will not absorb moisture from the room which can change sugar gel texture. Always store you’re Organic Sugaring Paste and Gel/Wax in a cool, dry place, ideally between 60-70°.
There are a few basic things you can do to reduce and get rid of ingrown hairs. First and foremost, exfoliate and moisturize! Using a natural bristle body brush, exfoliating cloth or brush, or our exfoliating scrub (recommended); you’ll keep dead skin cells from trapping new hair growth under your skin. The second step is to keep your skin healthy and moisturized. A good rule of thumb is, whenever your skin gets wet (after every shower or bath) moisturize.
If you find your ingrown are painful and pustulous, add an antibacterial ingredient to disinfect and help draw out the bacteria.
Before Sugaring: Oatmeal Mint Brown Sugar Scrub
After Sugaring: Any of the oil based scrubs are great for after care!
Short and sweet, some of the benefits include:
Much less painful than traditional waxing
Eliminating ingrown hairs and preventing new ones
Extracting all hair colors and textures
Gentle on skin allowing for reapplication for missed hairs
Improved skin tone and texture
More sanitary than waxing, Sugaring is never recycled and there is no “double dipping”
Can lead to permanent hair removal
Water soluble for an easy clean up
Eco friendly
All natural ingredients
