The Clay Mask is back.
The Basic Mask
Clay masks draw out impurities from the skin and allows your pores to shrink back to normal.
• 2 tablespoons natural clay
• 1 to 2 teaspoons distilled water
• 1 teaspoon light oil, such as olive or almond (for dry skin types only)
Mix together clay and water until you have a smooth paste.
To use: Spread the mixture on clean skin and leave on for 15 to 20 minutes, until dry. Rinse well with warm water followed by cool water and pat your skin dry.
For Women a drop or two of a light Rose essential oil brings back days of old. When women were doted after and always smelled of flowers. Lavender is also a nice choice as is jasmine.
For men who will try it the best addition is a drop or two of bay rum, sandlewood or lime essential oil.
For pimples use a drop or two of tree tree or peppermint. Peppermint is wonderful for killing the cold sore virus also.
For blemishes and dark spots. cut the water by 1/2 teaspoon and add 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice.
This can be made in bulk and stored in a jar with a tight lid.
