WHAT IS MINERAL CLAY AND WHY SHOULD I PUT IT ON MY FACE?
Make your own Clay Masks with these Australian Pure Mineral Clays. They are packed full of nutrients and minerals and are a perfect natural option for skin treatments. Used to clean, detoxify, heal and rejuvenate you can be assured there are no nasty additives or synthetic colours that you’re putting on your skin.. Some benefits of clay masks include;
- Increases blood circulation to the face
- It helps to even out your skin tone
- Draws out all the bad toxins from your skin
- Prevents blackheads
- Decreases breakouts of acne
- Unclogs your pores
- Helps to repair skin tissue
- Tightens skin leaving it super soft
- Leaves you with a Blushing glow
These cute lil glass tubes will make approximately 9 masks in total. That’s 2 – 3 face masks in each tube. The great thing about a DIY mask is that you can add any liquid to the clay that you wish. When choosing a liquid, keep in mind each brings a different attribute and will have different effects on your skin.
Some popular options are;
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Coconut Oil
BLUSH BODY CLAY FACE MASK RECIPE:
Add to the bowl 1 heaped Tablespoon of Clay to 1 Tablespoon of liquid. Mix well to form a paste and apply a thick layer to your face, making sure to avoid the eye area. You can even apply to your neck, shoulders or everywhere!
Leave on for 15-20 minutes making sure it doesn’t completely dry, as then the clay will absorb all the moisture from your skin, leaving you with unwanted dry skin. You will feel your skin tightening as the clay works its’ magic and starts to dry. Before the mask gets crumbly and dries completely, wash off with warm water and softly pat dry with a clean towel. Your skin may look little pink for up to 1 hour. This is due to the Clay drawing out all the nasties from your pores. For the best results, follow with a small amount of your favourite moisturiser.
Note: When mixing clay mask do not use a metal spoon or bowl as this will cause a negative reaction with the clay reducing the healing qualities. I use my Wooden Spoon and Coconut Bowl for the perfect mix!
Repeat the mask a few times a week to maintain clear and healthy soft natural skin that leaves you BLUSHING.
I would suggest patch testing first as every skin behaves differently.
