Go Gluten-Free for Brighter Skin

Anit Hora

Posted on May 18 2018

At one point or another, we’ve all been on the hunt for the perfect brightening cleanser. Whether its uneven skin tone, brown spots, age spots, acne scarring, or just an overall dull complexion, brightening and exfoliating can mean the difference between skin and glowing skin. In the realm of brightening cleansers you’ll find that Vitamin C is a recurring ingredient and with good reason. Vitamin C is a highly potent antioxidant which corrects irregular pigmentation, promotes healthy collagen production and repairs past sun damage. On top of that, the results are relatively fast and are visible within a few weeks of consistent use. But like all good things, there’s a caveat. The biggest disadvantage of Vitamin C is its instability- particularly in its most popular avatar – the Vitamin C serum. Light and air can denature the active ingredients and render them useless and for sensitive skin users, Vitamin C in this form can feel like a harsh acid on their skin. What to do? Hit the pantry of course!

Our Cleansing Powder was inspired by the Ayurvedic tradition of going to the kitchen and the garden and using all-natural ingredients to cleanse, exfoliate and beautify skin. With a base of gluten-free flours like chickpea and oat, both known for their gentle and soothing exfoliating properties, the benefits of this Powder are amplified by the more assertive orange peel powder, sandalwood powder, walnut shell powder and turmeric.

But Why a Powder?
..
It’s simple: Powders are shelf-stable, travel well and make for a pretty cool customizable experience because the user can create her own consistency of paste (Yes- you can use this as a face mask!) or light foam to cleanse. It’s totally up to you! Users can also also intensify or dial back the degree of exfoliation with each cleanse, a great option for more sensitive skin days.

Orange Peel Powder- Natural Vitamin C
To give your skin an all-natural fix of vitamin C, we recommend using it in its natural state, orange peel powder- Stable and effective. Orange peel powder is actually more concentrated with vitamins, minerals, and nutrients than the fruit itself. Naturally rich in vitamin C, it is known to brighten skin and reduce the appearance of acne scars and uneven skin tone.
..
Turmeric- Bye Inflammation!
This tasty ingredient found in golden lattes actually packs a punch for your skin, too! Turmeric is a plant native to southwest India that has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. It contains curcumin-- a powerful compound that holds anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. This compound is responsible for reducing UV damage on your skin and clearing up acne due to its antioxidant and antibacterial properties.

Sandalwood – Glow On
We owe the beautiful pink hue of our brightening cleansing powder to another staple in Ayurvedic beauty- sandalwood powder. Sandalwood powder is known and powerful skin brightener. Say goodbye to dull, tired skin! It is also great for delaying signs of aging, tightening the skin, removing excess oil, and healing any scars or imperfections.
