Detox Skin With Green Clay + Honey

There are many types of clays that are beneficial internally and topically.  All are natural minerals that come from the earth and each have different healing properties. Clays have been used in holistic medicine for thousands of years in various parts of the world.

French Green clay is one of the most purifying, toning and detoxifying topically on skin.  It helps to draw impurities and toxins from pollution that are living on and in your body.  It is made up of magnesium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus and other minerals that literally absorb water, fat and chemicals and deposits beneficial minerals into the skin that help to purify and nourish.

Combine green clay with the anti-bacterial properties of honey, and you have yourself a purifying face mask. This combo is particularly beneficial for acne-prone skin or monthly for a cleansing detox.

In a small bowl, combine:

  • 1 TBLSP French Green Clay
  • 1 TBLSP organic honey
  • splash (1/2 tsp) warm water

Mix well, apply to face (avoid eyes) and leave on for 15 minutes.  Wipe off gently with a wash cloth, then rinse well.  Follow with moisturizer while the skin is still damp.

As always, do a patch test on your cheek prior to using product all over your face, to test for allergies or irritations. Allow product to sit on the skin for 5 minutes.  If allergy or irritation does not arise, go ahead with the application.
