Nourishing + Anti-Inflammatory Colostrum Face Mask
Posted by Jessi Surthrival on
Looking for a DIY spa experience right in your own home? We’re about to reveal our biggest beauty secret!
Taken internally, Colostrum helps our skin to glow from the inside out with its rich suite of nutrients, growth factors and probiotics, but Colostrum — a potent anti-inflammatory substance — can also be used topically to beautify, soothe and heal our skin (works great on burns too!). In its simplest form, all you really need is water (and/or honey!) to mix together with Colostrum for a soothing mask, but when we’re feelin’ like a spa day, we like to get a little fancier…
Here’s our favorite recipe:
Honey (bonus points if it’s raw, unfiltered and from local bees!)
Rosewater (or your favorite floral water)
Oats (optional, if you’d like to do a bit of exfoliating massage)
For best results, you’re after a semi-thick paste to coat your face and not drip. You’ll want to play around with different ratios of these ingredients until you find a texture that feels juuuuust right. There’s no science to this; have FUN!
Once you’ve coated your face and neck, light some candles, turn on some soothing tunes and relax. Let the healing, anti-inflammatory powers of Colostrum work their magic for at least 15 minutes before you rinse!
p.s. This recipe is NOT just for the ladies… Fellas will benefit from this act of self-care too!
