Homemade Green Clay Mask for Acne

We are spoiled with choices when comes to clay mask.  There are many type of clays : white clay, red clay, green clay, pink clay and yellow clay. These exceptional quality clays have a multitude of purposes and each one carries substantial quantities of minerals for general skin health.

Did you know that Green Clay works best on acne skin? Green Clay is the most absorbing of clays, and it is generally used as a facial mask for tissue repair, drawing toxins from the skin and to normalise excessive secretions of oil or sweat. Green clay also firms, tones and refines the skin, promoting a smooth, supple, and clear complexion.

Green clay can be found at your local health food store or online.

To make your very own homemade green clay mask, you will need the following ingredients:

Method

  1. Combine the clay, aloe vera gel and water in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Apply the paste to your face immediatiately, using gentle, upward strokes and avoiding the the areas around the eyes.
  3. Let the mask sit on your skin for approximately 15 minutes or until it’s dry.
  4. Rinse off well with warm water before applying a toner and moisturizer.

The aloe vera gel in this mask provides strong healing properties, and due to its soothing nature it can calm blotches, rediness and swelling to the skin.

Alternatively, you can also make  a Simple Yogurt and French Green Clay Mask.

The ingredients are

  • 1 tablespoon of French Clay
  • 2 tablespoon plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons distilled water
Method
  1. Mix together the yogurt and distilled water in a mixing bowl.
  2. While stirring, slowly sprinkle in the french green clay
  3. Apply the paste to your face immediately, using gentle, upward strokes and avoiding the the areas around the eyes.
  4. Let the mask sit on your skin for approximately 15 minutes or until it’s dry.
  5. Rinse off well with warm water before applying a toner and moisturizer.
Alternatively, if time is an issue to make your homemade clay mask, then the next best remedy is to purchase the complete mixture online. I recommend the Purifying Mineral Mask from Miessence.
