Green Illite Clay is the most sought after for skin conditions and cosmetic purposes. It naturally draws impurities from the pores and makes it perfect for detoxifying and rejuvenating the skin.
Illite Clay can be used for both normal and oily skin because of its ability to restore skin to its natural pH balance. It also stimulates blood circulation to the skin to help with many types of skin conditions, including acne, psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, bug bites and sunburn.
Cleansing Rosewater is great for mature and sensitive skin, whilst Geranium Essential Oil may reduce a blotchy complexion, prevent dryness and may reduce sensitivity for eczema sufferers or for people with sensitive skin.
Please note, once you remove the dried mask, your skin will be very red and may feel hot and tight. We highly recommend immediately applying our skincare products (spritz then cream) to rehydrate your skin. Depending on how dehydrated you are, you may wish to apply a second layer of cream before finally sealing the skin by applying a pump worth of our Age-Defying Face Oil (once the cream has sunk in). Rehydrating and sealing your skin with high quality products after use is highly recommended.
We do not recommend applying make up to the skin immediately after use. Any redness should go within a few hours, leaving your complexion bright and glowing.
Please note this mask may draw out toxins from the skin, so you may get a breakout a few days later, so do not apply this mask in advance of a special event. However, if you do get a break out, we can highly recommend using our Intensive Hand & Body Butter with Lavender & Chamomile on any blemishes. We also recommend drinking lots of water to help flush any toxins from the body.
How to make a clay mask
- Shake your Floral Water before use. Combine a small amount of the clay (approx. 1/2 a teaspoon) with a few drops of your Floral Water & Organic Pure Geranium Essential Oil blend. Mix until it forms into a smooth paste.
Please note, adding 1-2 drops of floral water at a time, will prevent waste. If you do make too much, your mixture can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for another time (we recommend using it within 7 days).
- Apply the clay mask on the face or body and allow it to stand for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until the paste dries/changes colour.
- Rinse with lukewarm water and pat the face dry with a soft towel.
- Pro Tip: Before drying your face, we like to rinse our face cloth in hot water and lay it over the skin. This gives your skin a mini steam and really opens up your pores before applying our skincare products.
