Clay Facial: Apply a thin layer of paste to the skin for 10 - 20 min. or longer if preferred. Some may wish to leave it for approximately one hour. There is no set time limit. Even a regular 5min facial is effective in maintaining clean healthy skin. Remove with a damp cloth.
Mixing Ratio : Mix 1 part clay to 2 parts of water. eg. add 100g (4 heaped dessertspoons) of clay to 200ml of water.
Add the clay to the water not the water to the clay. Let it settle for about one hour and then pour off any excess water. It is ready to use!
For large amounts alternately layering the clay and water will ensure a more even hydration. Start with water then clay then water etc.
No mixing is necessary.
- Once it has become fully hydrated you will have a smooth paste that you can use for facial, body wraps, clay pack, poultice..
- Kneading and extra water may be necessary if it becomes slightly dry during storage.
Tip: once the clay has dried out it will not have any cleansing effect. It will need to be moistened again.
