Clay Facial Recipe


Choose the right clay for your skin type (see Library for information regarding clays). Choose a wetting agent. While plain water will do just fine, you can also try wetting agents such as fruit purees (strawberry puree will act like an alphahydroxy), cucumber puree (cools the skin), yogurt (cools and softens the skin), milk (removes dead skin cells and softens the skin), honey (acts as an anti bacterial), & rosewater or other floral waters ( a nice substitute for plain water). Make a thick paste of the clay. You can also add citrus peel powders for astringency, rose petal powder for fragrance, neem powder for anti bacterial action (especially useful for acne prone skin), colloidal oatmeal for soothing the skin, and/or milk powders. Essential oils can be added and jojoba is a good additive to help balance dry spots. Apply the mask to your skin and let it dry for 20 minutes. Rinse well with warm water and pat dry. Repeat weekly.
