Rhassoul clay is very nourishing for the skin, it is higher ratio of minerals such as silica, potassium magnesium, and calcium compared to other types of clay. This high mineral content is what makes it such a great detoxifying agent for the face. When it is mixed with water it becomes negatively charged, this negative charge attracts heavy metals and other toxins out of the skin and into the clay, which is then washed away when the mask is finished. It also can be used for acne control because it has antimicrobial properties; it clears harmful bacteria from the skin. This also improves skin smoothness and tone.
This clay is extremely beneficial for ALL skin types. It is great for oily and acne prone skin because it pulls oil deep from the pores. It is also great for mature skin because it can prevent wrinkles due to its high silica content. It deposits the silica onto the face while the mask is on, this increases skin elasticity and moisture in the skin. For dry skin, it increases skin wetness and clarity, leaving your face feeling clean and moisturized.
Kaolin clay has the ability to reduce pore size and pull out excess oil without leaving your skin feeling dry. It detoxifies and cleans the skin, but is gentle and non-irritating.
Lavender flowers are antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, which makes it a strong acne fighter that also reduces the redness and swelling from the acne. It also boosts circulation which increases blood flow to the face. This ensures the cells get adequate amounts of oxygen and nutrients, and promotes cell turnover.
Chamomile is a extremely soothing herb with antioxidant properties. It can reduce dark circles under the eyes because it increase circulation.
Calendula is a great moisturizer, so it is very beneficial for dry or chapped skin. It is also anti-inflammatory, so decreases swelling and acne breakouts.
To use: Mix 1 tsp of powder with 1 tsp liquid (filtered water, tea, hydrosol, aloe vera gel, apple cider vinegar…). Spread onto face using hands or brush. Leave on until dry (~10 mins). Rinse off with wet towel. Moisturize.
