Lately I have been using the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay to help shrink my pores and dry out and heal some pretty nasty zits on my face. I must say it is an excellent facial mask to use for removing unnecessary dirt and oils from my face and skin, and it sure does leave my skin and face bright, clean and younger looking. However, it does tend to dry out my skin a little.
The way I have been using the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay comes in a clay dry powder for that involves adding a liquid to it to help turn it into a wet clay facial mask. I usually like to take 3 to 4 tablespoons of the clay powder and mix about 1 to 2 teaspoons of witch hazel with it until I get a wet grayish looking clay mask that is slightly thick and not to runny. You want the clay mask to come out sort of looking like a thick toothpaste so it stays on your face. If you make the mask to runny it will make a mess and drip everywhere if you try and place it on your face. After I am done making the clay mask I take it and place it on my face in a nice even layer using my hands and fingers. Once it is on my face I have been allowing it to stay on for about 30 minutes. During this time the clay mask turns a lighter color, begins to dry and harden to your face. This is okay because it is just drawing out the oils and dirt from your pores so your skin can be clearer and healthier appearing. Once the 30 minutes is up I simply rinse the mask off with plenty of water, pat it dry and apply a light organic facial moisturizer to keep my skin and face hydrated and protected.
Now the only ingredients in this mask is green clay. This mask is excellent for people with all kinds of skin types I believe because it doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals or irritating ingredients in it that could possible give someone an allergic reaction. I know I personally have sensitive skin and didn’t have any kind of irritations at all while using this facial clay mask. I will say my face was bright red after using it, but the redness went away within 5 minutes.
The store I got the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask at Amazon.com, but you can get it on Vitacost.com as well. I know I paid around $7 for a 1 pound jar of the stuff and I think it is going to last me several months if not a year. I would recommend this clay mask to anybody over any of the other clay facial mask out there because it is really gentle and purifying on the skin.
Anyways, I hope this helps someone out there looking for any excellent green clay mask to help cleanse and brighten up the skin. I know the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask has worked well for me and has done an excellent job with helping me clear my acne up. I wish you all the best of luck with your green clay mask and hope you get the skin results your looking for if you do decide to use.
