In terms of beauty trends, masks have always been popular, but one thing that has
changed is the type of mask. Cucumber masks you peel off to reveal soft, smooth skin
used to be the top trend, but now it is all about the clay masks you rinse off. Here are
some homemade clay masks you can make using all natural ingredients.
Rose Clay Mask
This first clay mask is one that you can make using a few different rose products. Rose
isn’t just for smelling pretty or making your home look beautiful, but can work great as a
face mask to improve your skin. You want to get both rose clay and rosehip oil for this
one. You can also use a little rose water in this clay mask, but keep it on the thicker
side. Some other ingredients to consider adding are jojoba or avocado oil, chamomile
essential oil, and a conditioning emulsifier.
Charcoal Clay Detox Mask
This is definitely one of the most popular types of clay masks right now. Activated
charcoal has many health benefits, including ones for the skin like reducing oily skin,
helping to treat acne, and evening out your skin tone. To make your own charcoal clay
mask, all you need is activated charcoal in powder form, some bentonite clay, and a
little bit of raw apple cider vinegar. Combine the ingredients and apply the mask just like
any other mask you would make. Leave it on for 10 minutes, then rinse off with cool
Bentonite and Oil Clay Mask
Here is a clay mask that has room for customizing it. It is an all-natural mask that
combines the healing benefits of bentonite clay with the skin-improving properties of
various essential oils. You will start with some bentonite clay, making sure it is pure clay
and doesn’t have anything added to it. You will then want a carrier oil of your choosing
like jojoba oil, along with essential oils that are good for the skin. Some top ones include
lavender, rose, and frankincense, though you can mix and match with your favorite
ones. This is a very purifying clay mask.
As you can see, you only need a few simple ingredients to make your own clay mask.
Choose the type of clay, add some skin healing ingredients and something for scent,
and you have yourself a homemade mask that is perfect for your skin.
