Hops & Barley Facial Scrub - 4 Ounces

When it came time to make facial scrubs, we wanted to make something slightly more appealing for men. With that said, we decided we would use hops and barley as our base not because of what they're more commonly used for but for their amazing skin rejuvenating properties. We then took that and added some rosemary and bentonite clay to create an earthy men's facial scrub that revitalizes, detoxifies, and leaves the skin feeling fresh.

So here's the break down:

 - Hops contain humolone which can have an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin and decrease surface blood vessels.  In one study xanthohumol was found to inhibit enzymes in the skin that are a significant cause of aging as they break down collagen and elastin fibers. 

 - Barley contains selenium which preserves skin elasticity and protects it against free radical damage. By enhancing skin elasticity, barley help to tighten the skin, making your skin more supple and well-toned and giving it a younger appearance. The antioxidants in barley help in decelerating the signs of ageing. Barley water flushes out toxins from the body, giving a clean wrinkle free skin texture. Barley is a rich source of zinc which speeds up the healing properties of the body. Barley applied as a paste can heal facial lesions within 5-6 months.

 - Rosemary contains naturally powerful antioxidants, rosemary helps strengthen the capillaries and helps to slow the effects of ageing on skin. It helps tighten sagging and loose skin to help it look firmer and more elastic.rosemary stimulates biological activity and cell growth to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. With its powerful disinfectant and antibiotic properties, the herb can help to treat acne and oily skin conditions. When massaged into the face, rosemary oil can help lightens dark spots and blemishes on the skin resulting in an improved skin complexion.

 - Bentonite clay is composed of aged volcanic ash. It is unique due to its ability to produce an “electrical charge” when hydrated. Upon contact with fluid, its electrical components change, giving it the ability to absorb toxins. Bentonite is known for its ability to absorb and remove toxins, heavy metals, impurities, and chemicals.
To Use: Mix a small amount of scrub with water, rub on face and neck vigerously. Rinse clean.
