Bentonite Clay Mask
I love my bentonite clay mask! I did this homemade face mask tonight. As I am writing this, I’m having trouble keeping my hands off my super smooth & soft cheeks! Find bentonite clay here.
I do this as often as I can. I would love to do it weekly, but that just doesn’t happen. I usually get to it once every 2-3 months.
Bentonite clay is, well, clay. It’s all natural volcanic ash from Fort Benton, Wyoming. It’s an excellent detox (taken orally). I have never done that but I hear great things about it.
Mix equal parts raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar (find it here) with the clay (find it here). You can not use a metal spoon or bowl because of the electrical charge of the clay. I reuse that disposable plastic spoon and keep it in my silverware drawer.
Make a thick, muddy, paste.
Put the mask on your face. Don’t forget your neck.
Leave it on for about 20 minutes. I usually take a bubble bath. It will get tingly. That’s normal. It will dry quickly. It will crack as your face moves. All of that is normal and fine. Leave it on at least until it drys. It doesn’t matter how long it’s on as long as it dries. I wash it off with a washcloth and water.
Afterwards, your skin will be red and blotchy. That’s normal and fine. It’s the electrical charge of the clay doing it’s thing.
