- 2 tablespoons of bentonite clay
- 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon of water (or more, if needed)
- Optional: a few drops of essential oil (such as lavender or tea tree)
1. In a small bowl, mix the bentonite clay with the apple cider vinegar until it forms a smooth paste.
2. Add water gradually, stirring well, until you achieve a thick but spreadable consistency. Adjust the amount of water as needed.
3. If desired, add a few drops of essential oil for added benefits and a pleasant scent. Mix well.
4. Apply the mask evenly to your clean face, avoiding the eye and lip areas.
5. Leave the mask on for about 10-15 minutes, or until it starts to dry.
6. Gently rinse off the mask with warm water and pat your skin dry.
7. Follow up with your regular skincare routine, such as moisturizing.
Before using any DIY skincare recipe, it's recommended to do a patch test on a small area of your skin to check for any adverse reactions. Additionally, if you have sensitive skin or any skin conditions, it's always a good idea to consult with a dermatologist before trying new products or recipes.
