Hi. 🌚 Here I am. Trying to be casual about this. Not awkward. Everything’s fine.
Bentonite clay is a traditional clay with many uses for healing and detoxing different areas of the body. For the skin it is known to heal acne, clear pores and even reduce pore size, remove many toxins from the skin, diminish dark spots, reduce fine lines, balance the complexion, smooth the skin, and even more. Our skin is the largest organ of our bodies. Our faces are exposed to the elements most of all other parts of our body. It likes having some TLC on occasion.
Tip: Bentonite clay binds to metals, part of what makes it such a great detox agent as it has been said to draw heavy metals out from the skin and body. So when mixing, its best not to use a metal spoon or bowl.
Mix equal parts bentonite clay and apple cider vinegar in a glass bowl with a plastic or silicone spoon.
Spread across face, neck, décolletage, and/or underarms in a nice 1/8-1/4 inch thick layer. Let dry. Leave on for at least 5 minutes. Some leave it on for up to 45 minutes while soaking or doing tasks.
Rinse with warm water.
Moisturize as usual. I like Jojoba or Argan oil.
Some good bentonite clay. I’m using @aztec.clay here.
It will tighten and you’ll likely feel a pulsating sensation. Afterward your skin might be a bit red. And it will likely feel smooth and fresh and wonderful. Not for everyone. Always test a smaller patch first.
