Clay is alive. It is the oldest healing material on earth. It is present everywhere: ocean floors, fields, valleys, and riverbeds. It is a naturally occurring mineral rich in silica, calcium, iron, magnesium and other trace minerals; its structure depends on its environment. It shimmers with electromagnetic energy and has been around for a millennium as a natural, traditional healing substance for detoxifying the skin and drawing impurities out of tiny dermal pores. A weekly clay mask treatment supports the scaffolding network of the skin's fibers and adds, as its main claim to fame, its exceptional ability to deeply cleanse and purify the pores of the skin. Other benefits:
Absorbs and balances excess oil
Actively draws out pimples, blackheads and bacteria that contribute to infected skin
Stimulates circulation, bringing fresh blood and oxygen to the area where applied, thus reducing puffiness and inflammation
Exfoliates dry, dead skin cells increasing suppleness, tone and clarity
Refines and softens fine lines and wrinkles, fades hyper-pigmentation, reduces scarring
Suggested Use: An ideal preface to a clay treatment mask is to take a few minutes steaming your face over a pot of water that has been brought to a boil. (Do not steam your face while the water is boiling!) Steam actively penetrates the oil into tiny dermal pores loosening and softening blackheads allowing the clay to draw impurities out of skin. Add one or two teaspoons of the mask to a small bowl. Dribble water onto the powder until it becomes a thick paste. Using a facial brush or your fingers, stir the mixture and apply to your face, avoiding the eye area. Allow the clay mask to dry completely, then remove mask with splashes of cool water, and wipe clean. Drying times and thickness of the mask can be adjusted to accommodate your skin's current conditions.
