As most of you know, I’m a huge fan of the uber-affordable Aztec Secret Clay Mask (here’s my review of Aztec Secret in case you missed it). I use it every week and it’s helped clear my congestion, clogged pores, acne and dry flakes.
My usual face mask recipe is 1 scoop clay, 1 scoop Apple Cider Vinegar. Every other week I mix in a bit of organic honey.
However, the lovely Robyn from Purely Cosmetics Shopaholic blog was experimenting last week and came up with a new recipe! Of course, I had to try it out a few times before recommending it on Bionic Beauty. After 3 uses, I can honestly stand behind the new mix.
This new recipe is great for people with already tight skin that may get irritated when masks pull and dry; people with acne; or who live in the drier climates/seasons.
Robyn’s Special Mask recipe…
- 1 scoop of Aztec Secret Clay or Bentonite clay (Bentonite is the type of clay in the Aztec Secret brand)
- 2/3 scoop Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1/3 scoop Jojoba Oil
The jojoba really smooths out the clay and makes it a bit “slippery”. It glided over my skin. During the dry time, the mask didn’t pull excessively on my skin. After rinsing, my skin was super soft as only Jojoba can do! So now we not only have a new Bentonite clay face mask recipe, but we’ve got a new use for Jojoba Oil!
