Beauty tip: Clay masks

Going to school in the middle of a city does a real number on my skin. The dirty city air can really clog up my pores and the hard water leaves my skin looking oily and sad. No bueno! Thankfully, I've come up with a method that helps to combat this problem, and keep my skin looking relatively normal!

I use bentonite clay! Bentonite clay is a volcanic clay that draws out toxins and blackheads, kills bacteria, exfoliates, and delivers anti-aging benefits. Yes, please!

Here's what you'll need*:

-1 and 1/2 tbs of bentonite clay (I use Aztec Secrets)
-2 tbs of purified water or aloe vera juice
- (optional) 1/2 tsp of apple cider vinegar (for a really deep clean or really oily skin)
-(optional) 1/2 tsp of honey (great for normal to dry skin)

Combine the ingredients in a small, non-metallic bowl and stir with a non-metallic instrument. Let the mixture sit for a couple of minutes, and then apply a generous layer to your face using clean hands. Leave it on for at least 15 minutes, which will give it time to harden. Then, rinse with cool water and apply a light layer of your moisturizer.

I do this treatment 1-3 times per week for clean, closed pores, skin that's more evened out, and a brighter complexion! 
Give it a try!

*This recipe is good for two generous batches. Refrigerate any leftovers, covered, for no more than 5 days.
