Calcium Bentonite Clay Face Mask

Raw Apple Cider Vinegar - Pure Calcium Bentonite Clay - Bowl
It might not smell fantastic and you may temporarily look like the Creature from the Black Lagoon but the benefits are there!

I have a bottle and a bag full of calcium bentonite clay and even though the benefits are there sometimes I can be quite a lazy bum and don't feel to create! [Sometimes you just want it ready made to slap on your mug]

Let me stop and give a list of benefits of this clay mask :

  • Dry up blisters 
  • Relieve itching skin
  • Draws excess oils to the skin surface
  • Boosts circulation to tighten skin
  • Stimulate blood flow
  • Acne
  • Under eye circles
I use it for the excess oils, tighten skin, stimulated blow flow and of course ACNE! I haven't yet used it to treat under eye circles but I feel I may just need to this week.

To make this mask you'll need :

  • Pure Calcium Bentonite Clay
  • Bowl
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Raw Apple Cider Vinegar 
  • or
  • Water
  • or
  • Oils { jojoba / tea tree oil }
  • Face Brush {optional}

To be honest the amount I had in this bowl was more than enough.
Mix equal parts of the clay with your liquid of choice or as I do sometimes - add a tablespoon clay, tablespoon water or vinegar and a few drops of oils.

Mix and shake your hips as you do so and really get a nice paste going and apply to the face or affected area.

Allow to dry on your face thoroughly before washing it off!

Rinse with lukewarm water.

Whenever I ever use this mask most times my skin becomes quite warm and red but I do feel any spots are drying and where I'm feeling more oily is less so.

The redness don't last and to sit and look like him...

 ...for roughly 10 - 15minutes it's painless.

    I love Bentonite clay masks, I find they don't irritate too much on my sensitive skin!

  3. Only problem I've found with using the ACV, is that the fumes burn my eyes. Am I the only one with this problem?

  4. The only problem I find with using ACV is that the fumes burn my eyes. :(

  5. I like to use coconut oil to replace some of the ACV. It makes it much less irritating for my skin and adding in some vitamin E as well helps take care of any scars!

    where did you purchase it?

  7. Don't use pure apple cider vinegar, always mix with water unless you're 100% your skin can handle it. I'm bright red atm!

    1. Yes some people's skin is more tolerable than others because some use pure ACV as a daily toner. Sensitive skin types shouldn't really use anything acidic.
