These wonderful clays work amazingly together in the clay face mask.
NZ Glacial Clay is available to purchase on its own for those of you who have skin like me which is very acne prone and oily, this provides the ultimate detox that’s a bit stronger than the original mask.
Read about them below!
- A very versatile clay! Great for helping to clear skin and is great for light exfoliation, but all skin types will benefit from its gentle magic.
NZ Glacial Clay (bentonite clay)
- Known to absorb toxins by producing an “electrical charge” when the components change when mixed with water.
- Suited for all skin types but even more so for mature skin, it improves softness and because of its soft nature it is very gentle for sensitive skin.
Always patch test before use.
Cleanse skin before application so the face mask can work at its full potential.
In a bowl, add clay (approx 2-3 teaspoons) and add some water (approx 1-2 teaspoons) and mix until you reach a paste that is the consistency of smooth peanut butter or the consistency of your personal preference, the thicker the better!
Apply evenly to freshly cleansed and dry skin, lightly use your fingers to scrub it onto your skin as the clay gently exfoliates. Avoid eye area! Leave on skin for up to 20 minutes or until completely dry and firm, then thoroughly wash off and pat skin dry. Follow with your favourite face moisturiser then facial oil. Use 1-2 times a week for the OG Clay mask, and once a week for the ultimate detoxifying mask.
Please note, after washing off the ultimate detoxifying face mask, redness is normal - but if your skin is irritated discontinue use!
These can also be used all over your body, not just your face - Just mix it up like above, apply to your body then shower off after 20 minutes. I love using this as a spot treatment too on problem areas, but please don’t apply onto broken skin especially if you’re like me and like to pick your pimples.
Product comes in a silver sachet and weighs 70g. The sachet can be reused once finished as it is resealable. You can get well over 20 masks from this if used as directed.
