This is a super easy and cheap way to clean, detoxify, and even shrink the pores on your face. Let’s get started!
Why Bentonite Clay?
Well, I actually wrote a whole post on it! The basic jist of it is that it binds to toxins and then you wash them off. Check out the full article here.
Why Apple Cider Vinegar?
When you use pure, organic apple cider vinegar that contains the mother (I like this brand), it can do wonders for your skin! It acts as a tonic and works by restoring the pH levels to your skin, and the beta-carotene in it helps to slow future skin damage. It can make your skin feel smoother, absorb excess oil and reduce fine lines. I also have an entire article written about it, because it has some amazing overall body benefits! Check that article out here.
I like to add essential oils to pretty much everything, even my water and brownies! They have radically helped my family of six to stay well and healthy, and thrive! I use essential oils a LOT for my skin! Oils like frankincense are a woman’s best friend – use a few drops everyday to help smooth the appearance of fine lines and make you look healthy and young! Apply to any dark spots and blemishes for healthy skin.
I get all of my oils from Young Living – they are the only company I trust. Learn more here! Or if you love Instagram, check out my account or go to @wholelifeoils. I also have a website just for my team – check it out here!
I love whipping up this face mask because it’s so easy! All you need is:
- 1 tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 tbsp. Bentonite Clay
- Optional – 3-5 drops total of any of the following essential oils:
- Joy blend from Young Living
Stir until it forms a paste with a plastic or wooden spoon (metal can mess up the negative charge of the bentonite clay and then it will be less effective). Add more water if needed. Rub onto clean skin and wait until it dries – about 10-20 minutes. Then, rinse off and moisturize!
This recipe makes 1-3 applications.
