|Due to its porous structure, Green Clay is a natural adsorbent, which literally removes all kinds of by-products our skin leaves behind or builds up inside of its layers, like oils, dirt and toxins.
The mineral content of green clay is extraordinary, including but not limited to: magnesium, calcium, potassium, zinc, silicon, selenium, iron, copper, and cobalt
The absorbent properties of green clay work in beauty treatments by drawing out impurities and toxins from the skin, toning and firming while stimulating circulation
Estheticians use it to tighten pores, exfoliate dead skin, and reveal a smoother, fresher complexion
It is known to clear skin and heal blemishes, usually in the form of a clay mask
It is a comforting remedy for aching muscles and joints, especially when combined with the essential oils of rosemary or lavender.
|1. Facial cleanser
Use glass or plastic bowl ( not a metal one). Combine the green clay and water in a bowl and stir. Leave it for 20 min. After this period of time the clay „ activates“ and becomes a really effective cosmetic mean. Wash your face (and body) as using a liquid soap with gentle massage for a few minutes. The clay is detoxifying and cleansing so much that people with dry skin should be careful in using it.
Another way of making facewash: pour a 1/2 teaspoon of the powder into your hand. Run your hand under some running water and then drip the water into the powder. Mix in your hand until you get a paste. Rub all over your face for 2-3 minutes. You can also leave on as a mask. Rinse off with warm water.
2. Purifying face mask.
To make a facial mask from powered clay, combine ½ to 1 tablespoon of the powder with 1 – 2 tablespoon of water and apply it to the skin, rinse with warm water after 10 – 15 min. This kind of mask is suitable for the skin with enlarged capillary, with impurities, blotches and skin with clogged pores. After washing the mask apply a natural oil on the wet face skin.
3. Hair mask.
Mixing Dosage: 2-4 tablespoons (1 part clay, 2-3 parts warm water)
Clay’s super tiny particles do their job of going further and penetrating deeper into the hair follicles, scalp and skin to purify, detoxify, rejuvenate and help regenerate new hair and skin cells and promote healthy hair growth while ridding you of dead skin.
Green Clay will promote hair growth and will halt hair loss. You can use Green Clay as a hair conditioner or a scalp mask before, instead of or after shampooing on a regular basis.
