Clay Face Mask 3 Ways - All Skin Types

 View the video at the end of this post to learn the benefits of the ingredients in these masks.



Clay has been used on the skin for centuries for its variety of benefits. Going to the spa and getting a clay or mud treatment can be quite expensive. Recreate the spa at home with these 3 masks I have created in this post. Each one is formulated for a different skin type but can be experimented with. You never know which one you will like the best. Feel free to substitute different carrier oils and clays to make your own masks.

Acne Fighting Aloe Vera Clay Mask

This cooling and invigorating mask will leave your skin incredibly smooth. When using Bentonite clay some redness may occur, this is common and should subside after a short time. Follow with your favorite moisturizer if desired.



Ingredients:

  • 1/2 TBSP Bentonite Clay
  • 1-2 TBSP Aloe Vera Gel
  • 4 drops Tea Tree Oil

Lavender Oatmeal Clay Mask

This mask no only smells great but does wonders for dry or combination skin. Use it as to exfoliate right before rinsing to remove any dead skin. This mask feels great on skin and is a rich texture. It won't slip around once its on.

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 TBSP Kaolin Clay
  • 1/2-1 TBSP Sweet Almond Oil
  • 1/2 TBSP Ground Oatmeal
  • 6-10 drops Lavender Essential Oil

Brightening Anti-Aging Clay Mask

After rinsing this mask off of your skin you will notice its brightening and lifting effects. Use a daily sun cream to protect your skin from further damage form the sun.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 TBSP French Green Clay
  • 2 tsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Raw Honey
  • 6 drops Frankincense Essential Oil
I purchased the ingredients for my clay masks at my local health food stores and also on these sites:
