Beauty: Holy Grail Clay Mask

aztec indian secret clay mask

Aztec Secret:  Indian Clay Mask is amazing!  I used it pretty consistently a couple years back and then got a bit too busy and lazy about treating myself to facials that I sort of just forgot about it.  But today while I was under the harsh lights of the Sephora store, I noticed that my skin looked pretty gunky.  Sorry to gross you out, but I had tiny clogged pores (not quite large enough to be called blackheads but enough to give my skin an uneven texture) and areas of redness and flaky skin where there was inflammation.

So I dusted off my clay mask and gave it a go.  About 1 tablespoon clay and 1 tablespoon water mixed with a small brush.  Brushed it all over and gave my face about 3 to 4 coats and allowed it to dry for 20 minutes.  The drying process somehow sucks up your skins excess oils and solidified sebum from your pores.  You can really feel it happening too.  Your face literally starts pulsating as it is pulling at your skin like a magnet.  After it was all washed off… wow!  My skin looked baby soft, smooth and even.  Somehow I looked a couple shades more pale too but in a healthy way and those tiny bumpy clogged pores were gone too.  This was definitely a product I took for granted and should have used more consistently.  Highly recommend to anyone.  Good to know that it’s been around for thousands of years and is incredibly safe.

This stuff works better than anything I’ve tried and at a tiny fraction of the cost of more expensive facial treatments.  One jar of this stuff will last you forever too.  If you do this every month, you’ll probably have enough to last you 10 years.
