The Benefits of a Clay Mask
Clay mask a forgotten hero!
Bentonite clay has some pretty cool properties. The edible form has been traditionally used by indigenous cultures to heal mineral deficiencies as it’s rich in silica, calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, and potassium.
Clay also binds to bacteria and toxins living on the surface of the skin and within pores, helping to reduce blemishes, alleviate redness, and fight allergic reactions from irritating lotions or face washes. It even helps relieve poison ivy and eczema, as well as accelerating wound healing.
When mixed with water, it swells and its properties become electrically charged to attract toxins like a magnet, drawing out impurities from the skin while replenishing minerals and oxygenating the skin.
15-20 minutes is all it takes. Mix with many different varieties to treat certain skin conditions; try adding one of these ingredients:
Yogurt: helps exfoliate skin and tighten pores with naturally-occurring lactic acid. Yogurt also contains anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties to help keep blemishes far away.
Honey: with antibacterial and antioxidant properties, honey is perfect for achieving that “glow” while fighting acne and nourishing aging skin. Honey also naturally opens pores.
Oats: contains anti-inflammatory properties and saponins, a cleansing agent, making oats perfect for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Tea Tree Essential Oil: Known for its antiseptic properties, tea tree essential oil has been used for everything from treating acne to dandruff.
Weekly treatment is best!
