Ingredients: Kaolin clay.
Clay masks can be very drying to your skin as your naturally occurring facial oils will be drawn out by the clay. You may want to organically rehydrate your face with one of our wonderful facial moisturizers.
Mix up to 1-3 tablespoon of your clay with 1-5 tablespoons of your chosen liquid until desired consistency is reached in a non-metallic container with a non-metallic mixing utensil (or your fingers!). Apply a thin layer to your face, avoiding your eyes, and allow to dry for 5-20 minutes; Keep your time shorter for sensitive skin, and go longer for deeper detoxification. Remove your clay mask with a warm, wet paper towel, or simply rinse off with water over your sink, in your shower, or even in your yard with a hose on a warm summer day.
