Green Clay Purifying Mask

Green Clay is best suited for oily or combination skin. It helps to lift impurities from the skin. 

German (blue) chamomile essential works to soothe and heal sensitive or irritated skin.

Aloe vera juice is a very mild astringent that suits most skin types. It c an help to relieve irritated skin and restore the natural pH of your skin.

This mask works well on sensitive acne-prone skin, that can't stand grittier exfoliant masks or scrubs.

Green Clay Purifying Mask

To make this mask you will need:

  • 1 tablespoon fine French green clay
  • 2 drops German chamomile essential oil
  • aloe vera juice

In a small bowl combine the clay with enough aloe vera juice to make a smooth, spreadable paste. Add the chamomile essential oil and stir to combine.

To use: Spread the clay mixture over the face and neck and allow to dry - about 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and follow with moisturiser.

This makes enough for one mask. Discard any unused mixture.
