This has nothing to do with food.
I’ve been interested in facial masks etc etc..
and when i purchased my SLS-free shampoo kit, i bought 2 different types of clays. Rhassoul and Green Clay.
Taken from www.aussiesoapsupplies.com.au:
Micronized Moroccan Lava Clay - This clay comes from deep under the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, the only known source in the world. It is a totally natural product that is used today as it was hundreds of years ago.
Rhassoul clay has the ability to absorb oil and impurities from both the skin and the hair. Rhassoul contains higher percentages of silica and magnesium along with potassium and calcium, than other clays.
French Green Clay is the most used of the clays in Spas and Salons. Noted as the clay which possesses the most absorbent action on the skin, it is used mainly for facial masks for oily, neglected skin in the treatment of Acne. It is a little too drawing for dry or mature skin.
It cleanses, exfoliates, smoothes and softens the skin. It may be added to soap as a natural colorant.
Approx. 1 tbsp Rhassoul Clay
Approx. 1 tbsp Lavender Infused Water
Approx. 1 tbsp Water (could use the Lavender Water instead)
Just mix them all together into a nice paste in a bowl (not metal). Using a brush, brush a thick layer all over your face avoiding your eyes and lips.
This was very good. I left it on my face for around 1/4 - 1/2 hour (or until it totally dries and hardens). Mine should be left on quite long as i was soaking in the tub with our bubble bath scented with ‘Energy’ while i was reading ‘My Life in France’.
Amazing. If you don’t have time for a full face mask, use it on your nose. It is extremely extremely good for blackheads. Better than the stickers from Biore etc..
I am so happy with the results. and i will be trying the green clay soon!
Oh! another thing. a small problem with this is that. it’s messy to wash off. easy but messy as it comes off in clumps of clay. So, i think the best idea is to do the mask and wash it off when bathing. =)
Have fun everybody!
By the way, i bought a new Breville Hand Mixer and can’t wait to use it!
It’s holidays now! and i’m soooo excited! all the food – cooking and eating!
