A cleansing mask with this fine powder works to increase blood circulation and the flow of oxygen to healthy tissue (thus assisting nutrition, repair, regeneration and general resilience to infection). It is naturally detoxifying, antiseptic, curative and balancing. And it absorbs excess oil, exfoliates, rehydrates and delivers essential minerals. Finally, it leaves pores cleaned-out and closed-up for that wonderful smoothness that makes clay such an asset to natural beauty. Particularly suited to sensitive skin (Clay Powder doubles as baby talc), it is also tonic for stressed or irritated skin, and has proved useful in the treatment of both acne and eczema. For even greater therapeutic value we can add Evening Primrose or Rose Hip oil, or it can be blended using Neroli or Rose hydrosol. You can apply a clay mask treatment weekly, fortnightly or monthly, according to skin type. Clay Powder can also be added to the bath for an all-body 'milk' treat
Ways to use
