There are several different techniques in cleansing and detoxifying the skin. Every good beauty routine requires a good mask to pull out toxins and a bentonite clay mask is a great way to accomplish this task.

Bentonite clay is form of natural volcanic ash and is naturally high in minerals.  Bentonite clay’s benefits predominantly come from its drawing nature.   The mask promises to leave the skin softer, shrink pores and reduce black heads.  Everyone’s skin is different so start with doing it 1-2 times a week and for no longer than 20 minutes to determine the effect it can have for you.  The mask can be drying but if you don’t notice that you can increase the time you leave the mask on or the number of days you utilize this.


Start with 1 teaspoon of the bentonite clay powder to 1 tablespoon of water and mix together.  You can adjust thickness by adding more or less bentonite clay to the mixture.  Next apply to your face making sure to avoid the eyes. You should start by leaving the mask on for 20 minutes and then rinse off with warm water.
