Bentonite clay can be used in all kinds of ways to improve the health and appearance of your skin and hair.
One of the most effective ways to use bentonite clay is in a mask on your face.
This works well for two reasons: First, hydrating the clay creates the chemical reaction and slight electric charge that makes the clay so effective in drawing impurities from the skin.
Second, letting the clay dry on your skin gives it time to pull oil, dirt, toxins, and heavy metals from deep within the pores, using its electrical charge like a magnet to draw these things out.
The clay is also highly absorbent, and using it as a mask gives it time to absorb the impurities from your skin. By the time you wash the mask off, your skin has been deeply cleansed, and all the gunk goes down the drain with the mask!
So how do you use a bentonite clay mask?
The traditional, most common way to use the mask is to mix equal parts powdered Bentonite Secret Clay with water and/or apple cider vinegar until it forms a thick paste.
Start with half a tablespoon of clay to half a tablespoon of liquid, then add more if you need it.
Also, be sure to use non-metal bowls and utensils. Metal can interfere with the electric charge and pull minerals from the clay (which makes it less effective), so stick to wood, plastic, or glass.
Then, apply the clay to your face in a thin layer and allow 15 minutes or so for the clay to dry before rinsing off.
After that, apply an all-natural moisturizer. If you have oily skin, you can use the mask every day. If your skin tends to be dry, use the mask no more than three times per week.
This is an excellent and highly effective way to use bentonite clay, but we’ll admit, it’s a bit of a hassle to mix the clay, wait 15 minutes, and wash it off.
Luckily, we’ve created a much more efficient way to get all the benefits of a traditional bentonite clay mask.
An easier way to use bentonite clay
Our Bentonite Secret Clay Mask comes fully hydrated and ready to use, right out of the bottle. No mixing necessary! You just squeeze it out like toothpaste and apply it right to your skin.
Much easier, right?
Not only can you skip the mixing process, but our Bentonite Secret Clay Mask only takes 5 minutes to dry and cleanse your skin, as opposed to 15 minutes with the traditional mask.
And when you wash it off, it won’t get stuck in the drain, which is a common issue with the traditional mask.
Another benefit of the premixed mask is that it’s perfect for when you only need a small amount of clay.
For example, say you just need a little dab to apply to a pimple or insect bite for some spot treatment. Could you imagine trying to mix that tiny amount with powdered clay?!
The premixed clay makes it so easy to just squeeze out a tiny amount, apply it, and go. No hassle, no cleanup, and it’s so fast and easy, you could apply a little spot-treatment to a pimple in the morning before work and wash it off with time to spare. Simple!
