Clay cleanses the skin from impurities and draws out toxins, leaving the skin very clean and silky smooth. Clay is suitable for sensitive as well as combination skin types.
Clay comes in a variety of pastel colours: pink, grey, white, green. Buy pure clay finely powdered rather than a ready-made mask in a pot or jar. Ready-made masks have chemical preservatives, alcohol and other nasty ingredients added to them, none of which is good for the skin.
2 spoonfuls of finely powdered clay
1 spoonful of water
Mix the clay and water until it forms a paste. Apply to the face, neck and décolleté. Rinse when the mask is nearly dry. Repeat once or twice a month.
