Different ways to use pearl powder in skincare

So on the whole, pearl powder is great for anti-aging, promoting a radiant and youthful appearance, evening out skin tone and smoothing the skin texture. Against the backdrop of such wonderful benefits, let us show you six ways to use pearl powder in your skincare routine.

1. Apply direct to face

Just like old days, you’ve been sleeping with pearl powder on your face by applying it direct to my skin in the night. It doesn’t clog up your pores and by the time you wake up, you don’t see any traces of powder on your skin. All you need is to use a small brush to dab some pearl powder on your face before bedtime. Do not rinse or wipe off.

2. As an anti-aging face mask

you also add pearl powder to yogurt, milk or honey and apply the mixture to your face like a mask for anti-aging. After cleansing, just leave the mask on your face for around 10 minutes and wash off with warm water.

3. As a face mask to nourish and moisturize

You can also mix a portion of pearl powder to a beaten egg white, two drops of lemon juice and a quarter of a teaspoon of raw honey to nourish and moisturize. Apply on face for 20 minutes and rinse with water.

4. As a paste to revitalize dry and dull skin

To revitalize dry and dull skin, form a paste with pearl powder and Coconut Oil. Apply on the face for 10 minutes and rinse with warm water.

5. Mix in mineral foundation

We’ve also been adding some pearl powder into my mineral powder foundation. It helps with oil control and we like the idea that it evens out your skin tone and add some radiance too.

6. Add to fave beauty potion

Alternatively, add a spatula of powder to your favorite beauty potion or serum. Ratio is approximately one spatula to one ounce of cream or lotion or 30ml of oil.

Used since ancient times

Pearl powder is not a new beauty aid, having been highly prized by royalty in Egypt and China even during ancient times. Cleopatra, the last Queen of Egypt and Wu Zetian, the only woman in Chinese history to ever attain the title of Empress, were famed for their use of pearl powder to maintain and achieve their youthful, beautiful skin. Modern science has also confirmed what the ancient medics have proven to be true—that pearl powder promotes the regeneration of new skin cells, increases collagen levels that help to firm and smooth the skin and improve the skin’s radiance.

Benefits of using pearl powder

Containing calcium, protein and vitamins and a very high source of amino acid, pearl powder is perfect for all skin types and helps with easing skin inflammation and promotes healing, enhances elasticity and luminosity. Additionally, it aids in absorbing oil and skin impurities, filters out UV rays and helps to prevent hyper-pigmentation by slowing down the melanin production in the skin. Its antimicrobial properties are also known to remove blotches, acne, acne scarring, dry patches and rosacea as well as address sun damage.
