No one's skin is perfect and that includes me - someone who eats right and exercises regularly can still have the occasional zit here and there (sometimes the monster kind). But what if you have more than one or two blemishes, perhaps cystic acne or severely clogged pores taking over your nose, chin and cheeks? My remedy for that is to always to turn to my green clay mask.
Green Clay is one of the best all natural treatments to literally draw out and/or pull out toxins from your pores, it's fantastic for improving the circulation of the skin, which is why skin starts to look dull, tired and just blah - poor circulation. It helps keep the skin supple, wrinkle free and able to breathe. Not only that but green clay is superb at getting rid of age spots, scars and discoloration, whether brought on by the sun, acne marks that are acting too stubborn to disappear or anything of the like.
Wearing a clay mask will completely regenerate, tone and firm the skin and to make the clay mask all you need is 1 tablespoon of clay in a glass bowl and pure filtered water. Water should be added just enough to form a paste, adding too much will thin the clay out and that is not what you want, you want the clay to be thick-like consistency. Then using your fingers apply the mask to your face or body and let it dry for about 20-30 minutes, rinse thoroughly with cold water to close the pores and follow with a natural moisturizer such as: coconut oil, grapeseed oil, jojoba oil or avocado oil. You can repeat every day or every other day, or how you see fit depending on your skin care needs.
Green Clay is so natural and safe, being made up of organic essential minerals, decomposed kelp and seaweed, that it's perfectly acceptable to even drink it. By adding just 1 teaspoon of green clay in an 8 oz. glass of pure filtered water (left to stand overnight for 8 hours) and consumed first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, you are helping to detoxify your whole body from such things like:
- Iron deficiency
- Stomach bugs
- Internal disorders
- PH Imbalance
- Poor bowel health
- Mineral deficiencies
- Heavy Metal Toxicity
- Irritability/Mood Swings
Drinking clay water delivers important minerals to your body while at the same time removing all the dangerous toxins from your bloodstream, tissue cells and intestine and sends them out of the body as waste. There isn't anything that this clay can't do. It even proves to be quite successful at eliminating candida from the body - when other things fail to work, green clay comes to the rescue, within a matter of weeks of regular use, yeast infections will disappear and all because of the drawing action of this clay. It's just phenomenal.
The proper regime for drinking clay water:
Week 1: Drink the liquid portion of the clay water only as to introduce the substance to the body slowly.
Week 2 & 3: Drink entire contents, clay and water
Week 4: Take a break. No clay
Week 5-7: Your body should be used to the clay by now so drink water and clay mixture
Week 8: Take a break again. No clay
Week 9-11: Drink entire contents of glass, water and clay
Try green clay the next time you wish to detoxify your body or cleanse the skin of impurities, over time you'll be so happy with the results.
