5 reasons why powder masks are the best

A Proven History

Powdered face masks are one of the oldest known natural cosmetics in the world. Ayurvedic medicine dates back over 5000 years and it teaches us that masks should be used for cleansing and nourishing your skin and hair. The masks, also called Ubtan in India, are a mix of herbs, roots, flowers and plants together with water, milk or oil and applied directly on the skin.

Face masks were also popular in the Middle East, Ancient Rome, and Egypt as cosmetics. The beautiful Cleopatra was well known for her love of beauty and care, used face masks regularly based on clay and herbs. By picking the best that nature has to offer to us we are not re-inventing the wheel. Rather, we are essentially going back to the roots of traditional beauty and skin care that have existed for millennia.


The ingredients used in liquid face masks are already activated. Hence, these masks need to be used quickly after opening. As a result, liquid face mask contain a certain amount of potentially unwanted preservatives to prevent the ingredients from spoiling when coming into contact with air.

On the other hand, powdered face masks contain dry ingredients that need to be activated by mixing them with water or milk. As a result the powder can stay stable for longer and needs significantly fewer preservatives, making it a safer alternative for the skin.


Powdered face masks not only cleanse the skin but also nourish and moisturize it. The powder also acts as a gentle exfoliator and improves blood circulation. Powdered face masks give you all of these benefits, while using all-natural ingredients! Exfoliating products work the best in a powdered form, which is why powdered face masks are highly recommended for those who struggle with uneven skin tone, post acne scars, etc.

For Every skin type

Face masks in powdered form can be used by every skin type, however people with oily skin can benefit the most from the amazing properties of these masks. For example, face masks with clay absorb the excess of oil that has gathered on the surface of the skin, remove dead skin cells, and clean dirt from clogged pores.

A Modern Ritual

Mixing a powdered face mask with water or milk gives you the satisfaction of preparing your own cosmetic product made at home, even if it only means simply adding water. Face masks are not for those who wish to simply apply some product while hurrying to get ready for the day. Instead, applying a powdered face mask should be treated as a ritual that requires you to slow down, relax and dedicate a few moments to take care of yourself and your skin. This is a ritual that has been cherished by countless women over thousands of years.
