I have a love hate relationship with Sunday’s. I love them because it’s the only day I devote to just being lazy but hate them because that means tomorrow is Monday and let’s face it, no one likes Mondays. I try to make Sunday’s my reset days and my favorite thing is this amazing green clay mask.
First let’s understand what green clay is and what it can do for you.
Clay masks are most commonly used on the face, but can also be used on the hair and the body. They can help to clear up skin conditions such as acne too.
Using aztec clay is safe and easy to use, as well as being affordable. A large two pound container will last you for several months so you can make it into a variety of skin mask recipes.
It contains only 100% natural calcium bentonite clay, free of any additives, fragrances, or animal products. One container can last you several months. While you can use the powdered clay directly from the container, it’s better to make it into special clay masks that can be tailored to suit your skin’s needs. This will also extend the lifetime of your clay.
Benefits of Aztec Clay Masks for the Skin or Hair
There are many benefits to using an Aztec clay mask for skin or hair. Bentonite can actually lure out the positive-charged contaminants on your skin, due to a ionic pull. It can also energize the body, and has an alkalinity of 9.7 pH. It will draw the blood flow towards the cheeks and T-zones of the face due to constricting the skin and tissues.
It helps to heal acne-prone skin and eases the appearance of scars. It can also help to control skin sebum production.
Not only is an Aztec clay simple to use, but it doesn’t leave an uncomfortable film on the skin after treatment. It is non-oily and non-greasy.
