There are many types of clays used in skincare, with a variety of benefits to skin. Yes, there are the clays great at absorbing oils and clearing pores. Did you know there are also clays that soothe irritation, detox skin, exfoliate, and even offer anti-aging properties? It’s all true.
How often should you use a Clay Mask?
Start out with doing it once a week and see how your skin responds, then use twice a week if needed.
Take about 1 teaspoon of the clay powder and about 1 teaspoon of water in a bowl or cup.
Mix the two ingredients until it forms a paste consistency. You can add a little more water or a little more powder, if the consistency doesn’t seem like it will easily spread on your face.
Apply the clay mask to your face. You can also spread it down their neck and upper chest too.
Leave the mask on for about 20 to 30 minutes. As the mask dries, your face will start to feel tight.
Rinse off the mask using water or a steaming washcloth.
*If you use a spoon to mix the Bentonite and Green clays, make sure it isn’t metal because this causes metals to leach from the spoon into the clay, making the clay not as effective.
