Cleopatra also loved clay face mask and so do I.
Clay has many wonderful properties and is really easy to implement as a DIY mask. There are very different types of clay, from different parts of the world.
In this example I am using kaolin. It is especially recommended for sensitive skin.
Ready-mixed clay masks need a lot of additives. I have often had more irritation after use than before.
You know that less is more for me and that I want to use fillers and stabilizers as little as possible.
This DIY has a liquid and a dry phase. You always stir your mask together freshly before use.
What else you need:
- A libra
- A pair of gloves
- A disinfectant
- A spoon
- Two glass bottles, each 30ml with a cap
- Kaolin (white): 30g
- 7g of chamomile water
- 3g glycerin
- 3g Biogard 221
- Fill the kaolin in a glass bottle
- Mix the chamomile water, glycerin and Biogard 221 together and pour into another bottle.
- Mix 10 ml of liquid and 10 g of kaolin for application and apply to the face.
Leave the mask on for 5-10 minutes (do not let it dry completely) and then remove with luke warm water.
Then treat your face with a tonic and a facial oil. Clay can dry out your face, therefore use it only once a week.
Happy mixing :)
Why I chose the ingredients:
Minerals are activated by the moisture and bind sebum and metabolic products. Soothe the skin and refine the pores.
The hydrolate contains azulene, which has a very good effect on impure skin. The skin regenerates and inflammation is calmed.
A natural moisturizer and keeps the moisture of the skin together.
A natural preservative, which is necessary for the moist phase to avoid the formation of fungi and bacteria. Keeps the product stable and it is well tolerated by the skin.
