Try bentonite clay mask to tighten skin pores

By Glowpink Staff   

Today I am going to share a magical recipe with all of you that have been largely forgotten in recent times and that is Bentonite clay mask. This clay is full of minerals including silica, iron, magnesium, sodium, calcium, potassium, many nutrients and is very effective and beneficial for your skin irrespective of your age.

How to prepare bentonite clay-apple cider vinegar acne clearing face mask

What do you need:

  •  1 teaspoon bentonite clay
  •  1 teaspoon water or apple cider vinegar
  • If you use apple cider vinegar, it makes the mask slightly more powerful/harsh on the skin, therefore if you have sensitive skin you should use water.
  •  A cup or bowl and a spoon to mix. Make it sure they are not made of metal.

How to prepare and apply:

  1. Take bentonite clay powder and water or apple cider vinegar in equal parts and place it in bowl or cup. Do not use anything metal, as the metal will reduce the effectiveness of the bentonite clay.
  2. Stir the two ingredients well to form a smooth paste of desired consistency. Add a little more clay or a little more liquid, to get a consistency that will easily spread on your face.
  3. Apply a thin layer of the bentonite clay mask on your face. You may like also to spread it down to your neck and upper chest. You may use your fingers, but a face mask brush, a cotton ball or cosmetic sponge also works great. There may be clumps in the mixture; avoid them and use the mixed parts. Make it sure to not apply a thick coat, as you will need to have time to dry, so keep it thin!
  4. For normal skin allow it to dry, or until you literally cannot move your face because the mask has fully hardened. For delicate skin, let it dry for 5-10 minutes. Bentonite clay acts like a sponge when it’s wet – it expands. As it dries, it contracts and you will feel a pulling and tightening sensation. Feel your face pulsating and being sucked off by the clay. This means – the clay is pulling out toxins, impurities, oils, and any other junk from your pores while it dries!
  5. Rinse off the mask with warm water. You may have to gently scrub a little with your fingers to remove it. Or you may use warm water and a washcloth gently to get it off.
  6. After you rinse the mask off, your skin may look slightly red, which is normal and will disappear in about 30 minutes. Don’t panic! Because everything in your pores was pulled out, so your face is a bit raw and blood flow to your face is also increased for some time.
  7. If needed, wash your face with a gentle cleanser and moisturize.
  8. Use it once per week. You may use it more often for problem skin.
