Bentonite Clay | Powerful Indian Healing Clay Mask

I always tend to get breakouts around a certain time of the month, so i've been researching tons of natural remedies/products to clear my skin up since it's been a little out of whack lately. (I don't like to use products that have tons of chemicals because my skin is very sensitive to salicylic acid & benzoyl peroxide, depending on the percentage) I came across some info on bentonite clay & I was sold. I ordered a big tub from amazon.com that im currently waiting on to arrive. Below is a little info on bentonite clay:

  • Bentonite Clay is a powerful healing clay said to effectively absorb toxins, heavy metals, & impurities. It draws the excess oils & dirt out of your pores, removes dead skin cells, and boots circulation tightening the skin and improving blood flow. 
  • Bentonite Clay Helps With: Skin irritations, Acne, Blackheads, Dull Skin, Dull Life-less Hair, Hair product build-up, Skin Detoxing, & more
  • DIY Clay Mask: You can mix bentonite clay with various essential oils like tea tree, or lavender to increase effective-ness, I am going to try it with one part purified water, one drop tea tree oil, & one part apple-cider vinegar. Apply mixture and let dry completely for about 10 minutes.
  • The clay comes in powder form, as the clay is activated by mixing it with liquid, (do not mix with metal bowl or spoon) it doesn't get activated until you're ready to use it which gives maximum results. When the clay is mixed with liquid it expands and takes up a lot more space, so one jar of clay will last you about 32 facials or more, according to the website

    1. I have sensitive skin also, It is an all natural product (no fragrances, or harsh chemicals) I really wanted a mask free of dyes/perfumes/chemicals because I don't like the idea of leaving something that contains chemicals and artificial fragrances sitting on my skin for 10 minutes. Im really eager to try this mask, I will post in the comments a review as soon as it arrives in the mail & I have used it.
