The use of clays for all sorts of ailments and beauty regimens goes back for centuries and that in of itself speaks volumes. Not only is it great to use clays for overall beautification and hair care, but it is a great way of detoxifying the body, as well. And did you know, clays can be used as toothpaste substitute? How fantastic is that? Especially if you find yourself ultra sensitive to the ingredients used in modern day toothpastes. So, check out this article on natural beauty products / clay beauty products for ways to build a more effective skin care regimen using clay masks.
Clay Beauty Mask For Healthier Glowing Skin
For the purpose of beautifying, we love using French green clay and Rhassoul Clay Beauty Masks for healthier glowing skin as they tend to have a milder, smoother feel. They also tend to leave skin feeling softer and well nourished.
Beauty masks not only purify the skin, but tone it as well… removing grime and excess oil and leaving behind healthier glowing skin. With the added bonus of balancing your skin’s pH, which helps reduce the issues of open pores that can make it easy for grime, dirt, and bacteria to settle back into the skin.
So, if you are looking for a clay beauty mask that pulls out toxins and tones your skin, then look no further and give this a try.
- 1/4 cup French Green Clay (plastic or glass cup only, please do NOT use metal) – reduces inflammation, exfoliates, removes toxins; tones, and tightens skin
- 1/2 cup of Spring or filtered water
- 1 Tbsp of Rose water
- 1-2 drops Rosehip oil (nourishing, moisturizing, evens skin tone, healing and great for reducing the appearance of wrinkles)
In a glass bowl, pour in your water and with a wooden or plastic (silicone is okay too) spoon slowly add in your clay. Tip: add a teaspoon or so of clay to room temperature filtered water and mix clay in well until it is dissolved, this will make it much, much easier, to mix in the rest of you clay and not have to put in too much work.
Next, add in your rose water and drops of rosehip oil to complete your homemade beauty mask.
Now, take some time and settle down as you apply the mask in a gentle and circular motion. Lay back and relax for 10 minutes and then rinse well with filtered water. Note:depending on where you live, you may find that your clay masks tend to dry faster or slower than the time allotted, so adjust accordingly. Overall, the goal is to not let your clay mask harden to the point of being itchy, painful, and down right uncomfortable.
Deep Cleansing Face Mask
Why buy your cleansing mask when you can make it yourself? If you are trying to dodge the plethora of chemical fillers in average day to day skin care products, here is a good recipe to start.
- 1/4 cup bentonite clay (removes toxins by adsorption, cleans pores, exfoliates, and evens skin tone)
- 1/4 cup filtered or Spring water
- 1/2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar (promotes circulation, nourishes and cleanses by helping remove toxins)
- 2 tsp activated charcoal powder (deep cleanses, absorbing most toxins)
- 2-3 drops lemon essential oil (cleanses and refreshes)
- 1-2 drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil (purifies and cleanses)
