HOW TO USE CLAY MASKS
- wash your face with warm water to ensure it is clean
- using a non-metal spoon, scoop out a tiny amount of clay (about a teaspoon to start) into a non-metal container. Glass or ceramic bowls work great. To activate your mask, add one of the following liquids: water, apple cider vinegar (oily skin), aloe vera, or yogurt (dry skin) to your dry mask. Start with a small amount until you get a nice consistency. You don't want the mask to be too thick, as you want to apply a thin layer across your entire face and neck. But, you also don't want it to be too runny, as it won't stick on your skin. If you'd like, you can add a drop of essential oil (like tea tree oil).
- when your mask is ready, test a small amount on the inside of your wrist to ensure your skin doesn't react.
- apply a thin layer of the mask with your fingertips over your face and neck. If your mask is exfoliating, rub it in gently with your fingertips in a circular motion.
- leave the mask on for 5 to 15 minutes. Follow your instincts... if the mask starts to feel uncomfortable, you can remove it.
- if you applied a thin layer, the mask should begin to dry. Once it is dry (or before, if it isn't drying quickly due to it being on very thick), rinse your mask off with water.
- if your mask is exfoliating, feel free to rinse off by rubbing gently in circles with your fingers to get more exfoliation.
- follow up with hydration, like a toner or moisturizer. Again, follow your instincts. If your skin feels too dry, add moisture.
- once a week or less
- using clay masks too often can be drying to the skin
