Clay masking has been around since ancient times and for good reasons! Using a clay mask pulls excess oil and dirt from our pores, tightens and leaves skin with a smooth glow.
-Bentonite Clay which is the main ingredient, is highly absorbent and mineral rich. Bentonite clay works like a magnet that bonds to toxins and helps to eliminate it out of the skin.

1) Put a small amount of powder into non-metal bowl and add a couple drops of carrier oil such as castor, almond, jojoba, coconut, olive oil. You can even use Rejuvenate facial serum. Adding the oil is optional and helps give it a thick texture, be more creamy and adds more nourishment.
2) Add a very small amount of water and mix until you get a mud like texture. You may add more water to get the consistency you want.
3) Leave on for 5-15 minutes. Wash with warm water and pat dry with an old towel. Turmeric can stain clothing and towels. If you have left over clumps in your bowl then simply wipe clean with a paper towl.
Always mix in a glass or plastic container/bowl and never with a metal spoon. You can also mix in the palm of your hand which is an easier clean up!
Can be used as a full mask or spot treatment. Use 1-3 times a week.
NOTE: Turmeric has a yellow/orange pigment, thanks to curcumin, so it is staining. When using a turmeric face mask you will want to use an old towel to dry face after washing, also wash hands immediately, turmeric can stain the finger nails, but it will not stain the skin. Do not mix in a metal bowl or with a metal spoon. Bentonite clay will pull metal from both. A wooden spoon is provided with each pack purchased.
Makes up to 7 full masks or 15-20 spot treatments.
