Clay masks are super popular and for good reason - but have you tried mixing one up from at home? We love using clay to help absorb impurities and heal the skin - but make sure you pick the right clay type for your skin (they come in a rainbow of colours, all with different benefits!). This easy home recipe from The Beauty Chef will take less than 2 minutes to whip up and combines the mildest of clays with two of our skin-loving kitchen staples:
• The Beauty Chef Cleanse Inner Beauty Powder is a comprehensive super-greens supplement designed to help detox and purify from the inside - but it also works when applied on the outside!
• Yoghurt is not only a wonderful source of probiotics but the lactic acid in it will also help resurface and tone skin
• White Kaolin clay is an excellent treatment for dry, sensitive skin - it gently cleanses, exfoliates and tones without drawing oils from the skin, and is also a natural anti-ager too!
The Beauty Chef Cleanse Mask recipe
Gently cleanse, refine and heal skin to achieve your best summer glow with this super easy home recipe.
Mix all ingredients together well in a small bowl to form a paste. Apply on a clean damp face, neck and décolletage. When almost dry (do not leave to dry out on the face as this can cause an imbalance in the skin), remove with a damp cloth.
If your skin starts to feel a burning sensation, remove mask immediately.
No time to DIY or want to try a snazzier formula? Kahina's Antioxidant Mask is uses some amazing ingredients including argan oil and silica-rich rhassoul clay from the Atlas mountains in Morocco, and extracts of pomegranate and acai.
We'd love to hear how you go with this easy recipe!
