CLAY MASKS FOR CLEANSED, SOFT SKIN

CLAY MASKS FOR CLEANSED, SOFT SKIN
When it comes to skincare treatments, it doesn't get more natural than clay masks. Clay is a natural substance with a slightly grainy texture. That texture helps with exfoliation, while the nutrients in the clay tone, firm, and nourish the skin. Perhaps most importantly, clay is famous for its ability to draw out dirt, oils and toxins, resulting in deeply cleansed and softened skin.
A weekly clay mask is a relaxing, enjoyable ritual that results in cleaner, softer, lovelier skin!
YOUR HOMEMADE MASK HOW-TO:
  • Wash your face with warm water and soap or a natural cleanser. This gives the mask a clean start, allowing for better penetration. Pat dry.
  • Put a tablespoon or two of clay in a bowl. Add enough water* to make a paste. The mixture should be just thick enough to spread. (If you make it too thick, it won't dry on your skin. Too thin, and it'll run off.)
  • Apply the paste with your fingertips, covering all of the skin except the skin around your eyes.
  • Allow the paste to dry. (This is a good time to lie down and relax!) Depending on how thick the mixture is, this can take 10 to 30 minutes.
  • Rinse the clay off with warm water. Use a washcloth to finish up, if needed. Follow with a rinse of cold water, to close the pores. If you like, finish with a natural toner and/or moisturizer.
     
 Instead of water, you might use an herbal infusion (calendula to soften and smooth, lavender to cleanse and moisturize, marshmallow root to soften, peppermint to cool and refresh, for example). You can also make clay masks with other liquid ingredients -- such as milk or yogurt, honey, juices, and egg whites. And you can incorporate other nourishing ingredients, such as oats.

FIND THE BEST CLAY FOR YOUR SKIN TYPE:
(Clay is available through web-site)
Considered one of the finest of all clays, Bentonite clay powder is suitable for all skin types. It refreshes and cleanses the skin. You'll find it's also used for making poultices and mud packs and is often included in skincare recipes and baths.
 
FRENCH GREEN CLAY POWDER
With its high mineral and nutrient content and micro molecules (which enhance absorption), French green clay powder is often used in skincare treatments such as facial masks and body packs at spas. Because it's very absorbent, it's especially good for oily skin. This clay tones, stimulates, and cleanses.
FRENCH RED CLAY POWDER
Similar to French green clay powder but richer in iron oxide (hence the color), French red clay powder is best for normal to oily or combination skin. Red clay softens and tones. Sensitive or mature skins also benefit from the ability of red clay to refresh the skin.
KAOLIN CLAY POWDER
A very mild clay, Kaolin gently cleanses and exfoliates without drawing oil, making it perfect for sensitive skin types. At the same time, its astringent effect is suitable for normal to oily skin.
