A pleasant, invigorating scrub to remove dull surface skin cells, made of four herbs powdered into very fine grains. Exfoliation, I believe, is one of the secrets to really healthy skin, and this is a simple, natural, and sweet-earthy-smelling blend to remove whatever might be dulling your prettiest complexion! It can also help prevent clogged pores, since one of the main culprits there is dead skin cells sticking and building up in them. Men will like this too - it is not too 'girly'-smelling.
Chinese herbal theory has everything to do with balancing botanicals in careful combinations to maximize the benefits of each and minimize any unintended effects.
Here I have combined powdered coix seed ('yi yi ren' in Chinese), sometimes known as Chinese barley. it has a well-established reputation as a dermatology herb, and is used to control puffiness and redness.
Amber is called 'hu po' and is held to be calming and invigorating at the same time.
Pomegranate seed husk - 'shi liu pi' - is generally used internally, but I have included it here for its astringent energetics, as well as for its idealness as an exfoliant.
And vanilla - OK, well thats not a Chinese herb but it works great, and smells so good!
This is a good, robust exfoliant, recommended for use once or twice a week in a dime-size amount for normal skin. Mix with cleanser before bed and just lightly scrub for a few seconds as you wash. Use in smaller amounts and with more cleanser (to buffer it) for more sensitive skin. Gentle Creamy Lavender Cleanser is ideal for most skin types and works beautifully with this; http://www.etsy.com/listing/49217364/gentle-creamy-facial-cleanser-wtih
Feels great and so glowingly refreshing. You can also mix with plain water and leave on for a minute, let all that gentle, peaceful qi soak in and condition your lovely and oh-so-deserving face!
Comes in a boston round, narrow-top bottle so tapping out a small amount is easy, and keeping water from getting in (important here, as there is nothing but dry grains inside and water will glop and ruin the formula) is just as easy.
An ancient, simple but so very effective beauty treatment - the best kind!
Do not use on broken or already-inflamed skin, and as always stop usage if inflammation does occur. Some skin is more sensitive than others to rubbing, so be cautious the first time or two until you know how much pressure to use for yours.
