For a few years now I have become a more conscious consumer in what I eat and also with what goes onto my skin. I have read about the benefits of using clay, specifically Bentonite clay and was in the market for something to try.
I decided to try Aztec Secret, Indian Healing Clay, 100% Natural Calcium Bentonite Clay and it claims to provide your pores with a deep cleansing.
So what is Bentonite Clay? Well it is actually a type of volcanic ash that has amazing properties. It’s a detoxifier, ridding your body of impurities and chemicals. People have been said to use this stuff in different forms, such as internally but I am not that much of an adventurer lol…external use is well and good for me! 😉
After using this clay mask, my skin always feels extremely clean and refreshed. It is recommended to use once a week but I feel comfortable just using this once a month because of the strength of the mask itself. I use another maintenance mask on a weekly basis.
How to use:
Mix Clay with equal parts of Apple Cider Vinegar or water.
I like to use Apple Cider Vinegar as it’s a great natural astringent for the face. (But always spot test and see which mixture works best. Sensitive skin should always be patch tested to avoid any reactions when using a new product.) I like to apply just a thin layer as this stuff can really be layered on thick. Let it sit for about 15-20 minutes and lay a warm water-soaked wash rag on the face for about five minutes to loosen the clay (because this stuff gets tight) and remove with warm water…no added cleanser is necessary. There you go!
Good Tip! Do not run the clay into the sink when removing. Clean with warm cloth and bowl of warm water to avoid the clay from running down the drain.
Useful for: (per label)
Facials, acne, body wraps, clay baths, foot soaks, chilled clay for knee packs and insect bites!
I have only used this on my face but what intrigues me is the use of this on insect bites which I have yet to try…(shall we wait for the summer months?…we shall. 😉 )
I really enjoy using facial mask and I am really happy with this one in particular. Perfect for a little self-pampering. Spread some on, grab a glass of wine, something to read or a good show on Netflix and you got yourself some ‘ME’ time!
When I’m cooking, wiping butts, cleaning after everyone and making sure everyone one else is happy it’s needed every now and again… 😉
