How To Make An All-Natural Clay Face Mask

DIY Clay Face Mask

There’s something about springtime that makes me want to revamp and beautify everything! Whether it’s a spring cleaning project or filling my pots with flowers, I can’t resist the urge to make everything look fresh, new, and full of life. This applies to my home, but also to myself as well!

For the past few days I’ve been feeling like my skin could use a post-winter makeover. I started looking for homemade solutions that could help brighten and deep-clean my skin, and decided a homemade face mask would be just the thing! This clay-based face mask is easy to make and is just what the doctor ordered for a springtime skin wake-up call.

This simple face mask can help you address a number of skin issues, like acne, dryness, and dullness. The star ingredient is bentonite clay, a super absorbent clay that absorbs excess oils and helps to dry out and eliminate blemishes. Bentonite clay also helps tighten your pores, which can keep dirt and grime from coming in a wreaking havoc in your skin.

The supporting cast of ingredients includes ground oats, which add an extra boost of exfoliation to this skin mask, and as well as a good dose of hydration. You’ll also find raw honey, avocado oil, and lavender essential oil, which all help moisturize your skin and leave it feeling soft and smooth. This mask is quick to throw together, and can be used 1 to 2 times per week to rejuvenate and rehydrate your skin. Go and get that glow, girl! :-)

Beauty Tips

  • Just FYI: you need to use plastic, ceramic or glass when working with bentonite clay. It detoxes; and if using metal, the bentonite clay will react to that metal and be voided for detoxing your skin. Just use glass, plastic or ceramic instead of metal when working with it.

  • I do a mask similar to this. Here’s what I do instead:
    1/4 cup bentonite clay
    2 Tbsp ground oats
    2-4 Capsules of activated charcoal
    5 drops lavender essential oil
    Apple cider vinegar or rose water
    I mix all the dry ingredients together and leave them in a jar, then once or twice a week (we’re a busy family) we take some and either mix rose water or apple cider vinegar into a bowl with the powder, and paint it on our faces. While we all wait for it to dry we play charades until the masks crack.
