The use of Green Clay?

How to make Base Mask

1 cup of Fine Green Clay,

1 tablespoon of Honey,

1 tablespoon of Sweet Almond or Olive oil,

½ cup of natural mineral water.


These four natural substances are rich in solar forces and solar heat.

In one cup of mineral water, dissolve the honey, add the oil and mix well, then gradually add 1 cup of fine clay continuing to stir energetically until the mixture is smooth and creamy. This is the base mask.
Attention: After 3 minutes the mask will begin to pull at the skin, this is a normal reaction. After having removed the mask, in some cases the skin will be reddened, this too is a normal reaction on some skin types. In the case of very sensitive skin a light burning sensation can be felt on the skin accompanied by some reddening. This is also a natural reaction.
Important: A few minutes after applying a mask you will notice a pleasing sense of freshness and relaxation of the skin. After having removed the mask you will find that your skin has become softer.
How to use: Using a small spatula, spread the mask on your face and forehead, leaving it in place for the time specified in the recipe. Then remove the mask using a sponge dampened with warm water.

Bathing with clay does not dirty your skin, so it is best not to rinse yourself when you get out of the bath. You will note with pleasure that your skin has become softer. You can clean the bath of clay deposits with a jet of water from the shower. The clay will not block the bathroom plumbing.
