As bentonite clay comes from volcanoes, it is natural and rich with minerals.
While the mask is drying on your skin, why not pop a couple of slices of cucumber over your eyes to refresh tired looking eyes, relieve dark circles, and make you feel really relaxed like a proper spa facial?
Use this mask every fortnight for a deep cleaning facial.
Like with any other mask, this face mask is best used on cleansed and toned skin.
So if you are paying for expensive clay treatments at spas, they're really just using expensive versions of kitty litter!
Clay and spa like mud is known for purifying the skin.
To avoid clumpy mixture of clay and water, add water and let it stand overnight so that clay absorbs water and ends up smooth.
Also, the minerals from the clay will get soaked up easier when the pores in your skin are open, so using this mask after a bath or shower would be good.
Even though mud or clay treatments might sound dirty, if the right kind of mud is used (clean mud, not the type in your back garden!), then it can work wonders on the skin!
Can't find bentonite clay anywhere? Just use clean unscented kitty litter! Cat litter is actually made from bentonite clay!How to Make a Clay Face Mask

How do I know which clay is right for me – Redmond, Bentonite, Rhassoul? Where can I get it? How often should I use it?
We get asked a lot of questions about clay masks, so we decided to put together a special Skincare Saturday post. The Purely Primal Skincare Guide focuses primarily on the following single-ingredient options: Bentonite, Rhassoul, French Green, and Aztec Indian Healing Clay, which is a Bentonite clay.
Not sure what is right for you?
While a large chunk of the Skin & Body Care Section of the Purely Primal Skincare Guide is devoted to healing masks, you can learn a lot about these skin-care powerhouses by simply following your instinct and giving one a try! There may be one that’s uniquely perfect for you, but you can’t really go wrong with any of them. Here’s a few of Liz’s recommendations:
– Bentonite Clay (normal, oily, or acne-prone skin)
– Rhassoul Clay (normal to dry skin)
– French Green Clay (oily or acne-prone skin)
Where can you get it?
I ordered Aztec Indian Healing Clay, a Bentonite clay, from Amazon. You can find it here, or another, slightly more gentle Bentonite from Redmond Clay here. These are fairly inexpensive, and will last a long time. Primal Life Organics and Mountain Rose Herbs have an assortment of clay options available as well – some blended clays, some solo-type.
Now, let’s get started…
How do you use clay?
photo 80final Skincare Saturday: Healing Clay Masks!
Clay is extremely easy to use, and with most clays, you’ll find the directions on the label.
Remove makeup prior to using clay for best results.
From the Aztec label: “Mix clay with equal parts of raw apple cider vinegar and/or water. Stir the mixture well to a smooth paste. Apply ¼ to ½ inches to the face or other area. Let it dry for 5-10 minutes for delicate skin and 15-20 minutes for normal skin.”
I prefer apple cider vinegar to water. Learn more about the many benefits of apple cider vinegar here.
Note: it’s not necessary to apply 1/2 or even 1/4 inch of clay – that’s far too much to deal with! Simply coat your skin with a layer of clay. You won’t lose any of the clay’s effectiveness.
How much should you make?
A little goes a long way. I usually mix 1 tbsp of clay with enough liquid – whether ACV, water or a homemade toner (be creative!) – to form a paste. Some clays “take” water differently than others (for example, Fuller’s Earth Clay, a less-commonly used clay, will require less liquid than others to form a paste) but a good rule of thumb is equal parts clay to liquid.
The consistency of your clay should be slightly thick, but easily spreadable. If you make too much, simply store any excess in the fridge for up to a week. That way you won’t have to mess with mixing it again the next time you go to use it. It’s always best to blend and store in a glass jar or bowl, and to use a wooden spoon or your fingers to mix.
Spread across your skin with your fingers. Once the clay starts to harden, it will form a hard-to-remove layer on your skin as shown below.

Don’t forget to pull your hair back! You will feel your face pulsate!
As the mask starts to dry, you will start to feel your skin tighten. That’s normal.
Remove clay by washing with warm water and a washcloth (be gentle). A slight redness is normal after you remove the mask, as circulation has increased at the surface of your skin. That’s a good thing! This will disappear within a half hour. Once the redness fades, it will leave your face feeling soft and smooth. Clay is packed full of minerals and will help detoxify while nourishing your skin.
If you have acne-prone skin, clay masks are a must-have.
How often should you use clay masks?
It’s generally recommended to use clay masks once a week. For trouble skin, however, you may use it more often. I have been using it every 3-4 days. If used too frequently, it may cause dryness and irritation. If that starts to happen, then cut back on usage. It depends on your skin-type and your needs. If you prefer a more frequent deep pore cleansing (like I do), then you should use it more often. Experiment to find out what works best for you. You know your skin better than anyone else.
Are there any additional uses for clay masks?
Yes! Healing clay has been around for a long, long time. It’s very versatile.
You may use it as a spot-treatment. If you feel a pimple coming on just dab a little on before bedtime. It’s also excellent for bug bites, cuts, and burns. Some folks even choose to take it internally, which we’ll discuss in a future post!
What’s another fun use for clay? Hair care! Stay tuned to the blog for an upcoming post from Liz on clay hair care!

Thanks for reading – here’s to another great week of skincare adventures! A facial is a procedure involving a variety of skin treatments, including: steam, exfoliation, extraction, creams, lotions, facial masks, peels, and massage. They are normally performed in beauty salons but are also a common spa treatment. Facials are generally categorized, for example:
LED light therapy facial
Facials are used for general skin health as well as for specific skin conditions.
There are different kinds of masks (e.g. cactus, cucumber, etc.) for different purposes: deep-cleansing, by penetrating the pores; healing acne scars or hyper-pigmentation; brightening, for a gradual illumination of the skin tone. Some masks are designed to dry or solidify on the face, almost like plaster; others just remain wet. The perceived effects of a facial mask treatment include revitalizing, healing, or refreshing; and, may yield temporary or long-term benefits (depending on environmental, dietary, and other skincare factors).
Masks are removed by either rinsing the face with water, wiping off with a damp cloth, or peeling off of the face by hand. Duration for wearing a mask varies with the type of mask, and manufacturer's usage instructions. The time can range from a few minutes to overnight. Those with sensitive skin are advised to first test out the mask on a small portion of the skin, in order to check for any irritations. Some facial masks are not suited to frequent use. A glycolic mask can only be used once a month without the risk of burning the skin.
Masks can be found anywhere from drugstores to department stores, and can vary in consistency and form. Setting masks include: clay, which is a thicker consistency, and will draw out impurities (and sometimes, natural oils, too) from the pores; a cream, which stays damp to hydrate the skin; sheet-style, in which a paper mask is dampened with liquid to tone and moisturize the skin; and lastly, a hybrid/clay and cream form that includes small beads for removing dead surface skin cells. Non-setting facial masks include warm oil and paraffin wax masks. These different forms are made to suit different skin types (e.g., oily or dry), and different skincare goals or needs (e.g., moisturizing, cleansing, exfoliating). Clay and mud masks suit oily and some "combination" skin types, while cream-based masks tend to suit dry and sensitive skin types.
