Detox your skin- bentonite clay face mask

Bentonite clay is a volcanic ash. It can be used as a face mask as it draws toxins out of the skin. If you are interested in the science - when bentonite clay is mixed with water the resulting colloid is negatively charged and attracts positively charged toxins to it.  It is for this reason you should not use a metal spoon as there is a possibility that metal particles will leach into the clay and contaminate it. 

Using bentonite clay could not be more simple.  Using a plastic teaspoon measure a teaspoon of clay and mix in a teaspoon of water or rose water in a non-metal dish. Apply to your skin avoiding your eyes. You may notice a tingling or a tightening sensation which is normal.  Rinse well. Use weekly to detoxify and cleanse your skin, treat acne, exfoliate, reduce pores and wrinkles.

You can also use bentonite clay in your bath to draw out toxins from your body. This has the effect of reducing stress and anxiety on your body and mind.  Add a 1/4 cup of clay to your bath- DO NOT BREATHE THE PARTICLES IN, WEAR A MASK IF NECESSARY.  Also be aware that the clay may make your bath slippy and I would advise you not to get your hair in the water.  Enjoy up to a 20 minute soak then rinse well (ensure that no lumps of clay get washed down the drain).  Moisturise your body well (I would recommend coconut oil).

If you are pregnant or have a health condition, please check with your doctor before having a clay mask or bath.
