facial Mask Guide
Clay masks are fabulous for refining the skins texture without harmful chemical peels, which dissolve the skin’s epidermal layer, or irritating microdermabrasion. Clay masks can be used to cleanse skin by actively drawing out blackheads and pimples and to detoxify the bacteria that contributes to clogged pores and infected blemishes. Natural clays gently exfoliate the skin’s surface, allowing for better absorption of moisturizers. A regular weekly mask will smooth and soften lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of scarring, and with consistent use, fade hyper-pigmentation, resulting in softer, smoother, more even skin tone.
Directions for use: Mix approximately 1 Tablespoon of clay with 1-2 teaspoons of water, hydrosol, or liquid of choice, either in small cup or in the palm of your hand. Spread the wet clay mixture in a thin layer over face and throat, avoiding eyes and mouth. Let dry. Remove dry mask with warm water or warm facial cloth. Pat dry. Follow with moisturizer of choice. May also be used as a decollete mask.
Natural mineral clays WILL STAIN light colored fabrics. We recommend you use a dark cloth or set aside one or two just for your mask treatments. We would also recommend you set aside a dry towel just for this use as well. If you have not completely removed the mask from your face before you pat it dry, the remaining bits will stain your nice towels. Enjoy your new reveal 🙂
