A Wonderful Green Clay Mask For Our Skin
When you make this green clay mask, we are actually mixing up a very small quantity. Measuring the parts out can be quite difficult so it is recommended to use measuring spoons instead of scales for this one.
Making face masks at home is one of the joys of life. Often for me it can be an impulse thing. Something good is coming on the tv later, a nice dinner with hubbie and a cuddle later.
When you make a clay mask with water, they dry out very quickly in our warm homes and on our warm skin. This is why it is not very practical to try and store them. This recipe makes just one mask and you can change and adapt it for your skin type. Keep the quantities the same but just change the essential oils, type of clay and infusion depending on your preferences.
Sometimes a cleanser is just not good enough and hence we use a mask. The juniper and lavender oils are actually antiseptic and can be decongesting. Aloe Vera again will of course help with inflamed skin as we all know from those holidays where we got a bit sunburnt. Green clay is suitable for all skin types and is excellent at pulling out dirt from the pores of your skin. The green clay also has a wonderful soothing effect.
Apply the green clay mask and leave it for 20 minutes. Go and relax and let the mask work its rejuvenating magic.
