I can't get enough of this rose clay mask! Just look at that beautiful color!
Clay masks have been said to help clean and detox pores, nourish and tone the skin and even (with the right ingredients) help with red inflamed skin.
And even better, they are super simple to make!
There's so many endless possibilities, and who doesn't love spreading a muddy, colorful, and wonderful smelling mess all over their face?
There are so many options out there, how do you pick just one?
How do you know it's not going to stick to your face without ripping half your face off and pulling out more than just the bad stuff? (You have seen those videos right?)
Look, I don't know what's in some of those crazy masks that appear to almost rip your skin off when removing, (glue?) but we are making NOTHING like that.
These masks are pure and gentle and won't hurt to take off!
Let's get started!
How To Make A Rose Clay Mud Mask
What you will need:
You should be able to find all of the ingredients on Amazon if not at your local drug store.
2 teaspoons Rose Clay Powder (or French pink clay)
1 teaspoon Bentonite Clay (aka Indian healing clay)
1/2 teaspoon Colloidal Oatmeal (can usually be found with the bath soaks)
2 teaspoons Water
1-2 drops Essential oil of your choice
1. Simply mix your powder ingredients together in a small bowl and then add your water starting with just a little bit at a time until it makes a muddy consistency.
If you make it too thin it won't harden well, but if you make it too thick it won't spread well. So that muddy in-between is what you are shooting for.
You can also use mashed banana, avocado, yogurt, or any type of milk that you choose in place of the water! Just keep in mind that obviously mashed banana is thicker than water and you may have to adjust the ratios a bit.
2. Add a couple drops of essential oils. Lavender is calming, tea tree is great for acne prone skin, peppermint is cooling. Be careful with citrus though, lemon especially will make your skin more sensitive to the sun!
3. After you reach that perfect muddy consistency apply it to your face as thick as possible avoiding eyes, and inside of nose and mouth. You can use a clean makeup brush to apply if you don't want to touch it.
4. Let it dry completely. It will start to feel tight and crack. The amount of time will depend on the liquid you used and how thickly it was applied.
5. Then rinse off with warm water and a rag.
Note: Some ingredients may stain clothing and wash rags so use old ones that don't matter.
6. When fully rinsed off, pat dry and moisturize well. Then enjoy the nice clean, soft feeling your face is left with!
