This is hands down my favorite face mask, and believe me I’ve tried plenty! Best part of all?…It costs $9.50!
Indian Healing Clay is bentonite clay from Death Valley, California, where it is sun- dried for up to six months in temperatures that sometimes reach 134 degrees. It can be used for everything from facials, acne, body wraps, baths, foot soaks, and insect bites. I use it weekly to help my skin look glowing!
Healing clays have been used throughout history for their nutrients and to help rid the body of toxins. Bentonite Clay is composed of aged volcanic ash and is one of the most effective and powerful healing clays. It has the unique ability to produce an electric charge when hydrated helping it absorb and remove toxins, heavy metals and chemicals. See why I use it weekly?
Bentonite clay carries a strong negative charge which bonds to the positive charge in many toxins. When it comes in contact with a toxin, chemical, or heavy metal, the clay will absorb the toxin and release it’s minerals for the body to use. Bentonite also helps get oxygen to cells as it pulls excess hydrogen and allows the cells to replace it with oxygen instead. It contains a high concentration of minerals including silica, calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, and potassium.
I like to mix mine up with a few drops of Young Living Frankincense to give an extra boost! Frankincense is known to be a powerful astringent, meaning it helps protect skin cells. It can help with blemishes, large pores, and naturally boost your skins natural appearance leaving it glowing.
So how do I mix up my mask? Its really SO simple anyone can do it! I pour a few Tablespoons of the clay powder into a glass dish and slowly add in enough water (or you can use apple cider vinegar) to make a paste. Then I add in 3-4 drops of Frankincense and mix to combine. Spread the mask over your face (I like to use an old foundation brush) and let sit for 10-20 minutes. Rinse off with cold water and apply your favorite skin care products. I like to apply a little frankincense mixed with jojoba oil to moisturize!
