Detoxifying Clay Mask

Ok, so I don’t know about you, but after the holiday weekend I feel like my skin needs a little extra detoxing too.

Just about anytime my diet gets even just a little bit off, I start to break out…so this detoxifying face mask is a MUST when I’m traveling or when I’ve had a little weekend splurge.

I know I have already shared a recipe you can make with a few ingredients from your pantry — but this clay mask is seriously AMAZING.

You know I am all about natural beauty, so this Aztec Healing Clay is right up my alley. It’s a calcium bentonite clay that has been around for thousands of years. Bentonite clay is super absorbent and helps to pull excess oil from your skin.

A Few Benefits of Using Bentonite Clay:

♥︎ Unclogs pores and shrinks them to banish blemishes and leave you with smoother looking skin

♥︎ Removes toxins from the skin — Bentonite clay has a very strong negative electrical charge and most toxins, heavy metals, and chemicals have a positive charge, so the clay bonds to them and pulls them from the skin.

♥︎ Bentonite clay also pulls hydrogen from cells, allowing room for oxygen. This helps with circulation, and overall skin tone and health.

And there are really so many more benefits — but those are the biggies!

I like making my mask with a little bit of witch hazel — because I honestly feel like it’s the holy water of beauty. But, you can also use water or apple cider vinegar. I personally feel like apple cider vinegar is a bit harsh and it leaves my skin blotchy and red, but others swear by it… so see what works for you.

I also like to add a drop of tea tree essential oil too, because it’s like a zit eraser — no lie, SO good.

You just mix your simple ingredients in a little bowl, and then apply it to your face. I like using a nice wide face brush to apply it evenly. 

Hang out and read your favorite magazine — or blog 😉 — for 15 minutes, and wash off all the toxins from your gorgeous face.

Detoxifying Clay Mask


Ingredients

Scale

Instructions

  1. Combine ingredients in the small bowl, and mix to create a paste. Apply the paste to your face with the brush, avoiding the eye and lip area. Let the mask sit for 10-20 minutes, and then wash off with warm water.

Notes

  • A slight tingling sensation is to be expected, but if the mask begins to feel too itchy or stings, go ahead and wash it off early.
