Yep, this face mask really is my one-step skin care routine. I've tried all sorts of things over the years, but this is what I've settled on. At first I was using only bentonite clay and water, but that was too drying. Now that I've added honey to the recipe, it is neither too dry or too moisturizing. I apply it about 10 minutes before getting in the shower and wash it off with water. That's it!
-Raw Honey is naturally antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, full of antioxidants, and moisturizing as well.
-Bentonite clay is great for detoxing, softening skin, and cleansing the face.
Honey and Bentonite Clay Face Mask
1 tsp bentonite clay
1 tsp raw honey
1 tsp water (or enough to make a smooth, spreadable consistency)
A drop of your favorite essential oil (optional)
Mix all the ingredients in a small container until smooth. Do not use any metal utensils because bentonite clay reacts with metal.
Rub all over your face and leave on for about 10 minutes before washing off.
This recipe will make enough for several applications. Store in the frig between use.
