This face mask uses one of THE best ingredients for fighting acne, which is clay. Clay has been used for thousands of years to pull out impurities and balance the skin.
- 1 tbsp bentonite clay
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Mix the two ingredients together using a wooden spoon (a metal spoon will make the clay less effective). Apply all over face and neck and leave on for 10 minutes or until mask starts to tighten. Gently rinse off using a soft, wet cloth. Pat dry, and follow up with a light moisturizer. Repeat 3 times a week.
NOTE: This mask will leave your skin red for about 10 minutes after removing it, but it’s completely normal and it will go away!
