All clay masks gently exfoliate as they tighten, stimulate circulation, re-mineralize, and soften skin. This mask can be customized according to skin type, making it gentle enough to be used by anyone. Mix as needed; do not store.

Yield: 1 treatment.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon powdered kaolin
  • For dry skin: About 2 teaspoons heavy cream, half-and-half, or full-fat coconut milk
  • For normal skin: About 2 teaspoons low-fat or whole dairy milk, almond milk, or coconut water
  • For oily skin: About 2 teaspoons purified water or commercial aloe vera gel

Instructions:

  1. In a small bowl, use a spoon or small whisk to combine the clay with enough of the liquid of your choice to form a smooth, spreadable paste.
  2. Using your fingers, spread the paste onto your face and neck. Let dry completely, 20 to 30 minutes, preferably while you’re lying down. The mask will feel like it’s lifting and tightening your skin. When you’re ready, rinse off with warm water, and follow with moisturizer.
