I have a new breakthrough skincare product and I will shout it from the mountain tops! It’s a product that has been around for a while, but it’s recently become a staple in my skincare routine and I’m here to tell you all about it. 🙂
So, I give you, the greatest store-bought face mask of all time!
We know I am a lover of the DIY face masks made from two or three ingredients you can find in your kitchen. But when something this natural and different surfaces, I have no qualms whatsoever about including it in my skincare regimen. 🙂
It’s called Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay and it says right on the bottle “world’s most powerful facial” – right they are. For centuries, people have been using clay for beauty purposes, so sign me up too!
The product is made up of 100% natural calcium bentonite (green) clay. Also per the bottle: it is sun dried, no fragrances, no animal testing, no animal products, and no additives. LOVE. It’s really difficult to find good skincare products that don’t have a single harmful ingredient in them- including fragrance.
To add to the beauty of this clay, you can combine it with another favorite magical product- apple cider vinegar– to make the mask! Apple cider vinegar has tons of amazing properties for clearing and brightening skin, so incorporating it into a mask adds so many extra benefits. (You can mix the clay with water as well if you want.)
How to make it:
All you have to do is mix equal parts clay and apple cider vinegar (or water) and stir it until it becomes a paste.
At first, the two ingredients have a little reaction, but just keep stirring it and it will become a paste in a minute or two. (Of course you can add more clay or liquid as needed).
I applied the mask just with my fingers but you could use a brush as well if you prefer. This amount of clay made quite a bit of paste, so you could even do half of this amount for one facial. Since I made this much, I did two or three layers on my face 🙂
You can leave the mask on for 5-10 minutes for delicate skin, or 15-20 minutes for normal skin. I left mine on for 20 minutes. The bottle says “feel your face pulsate!” – accurate. You’ll experience a tightening and pulling sensation which is normal. 🙂 But relax and let the natural magic heal your skin! <3
The mask can be washed off easily with warm water. The only other effect to note is that you may see some areas of redness on your face afterward that will last only about 30 minutes.
Applying some Egyptian Magic cream after this is the only thing that could make your face any happier. 😉
This mask can be enjoyed 1-2 times per week. You can find a one pound container of Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay on Amazon for about $14 (!). I truly believe the best, most pure products for your skin are some of the least expensive ones out there because nothing artificial or unnecessary got added to it. You don’t have to spend a fortune to get excellent skincare!
I hope you guys enjoyed my post, and let me know if you have tried or are planning to try this product for yourself in the comments below! 🙂
