As a busy mom to three little ones my personal time is limited. It’s not often that I get a precious ‘me-moment’. I also lack the creativity and knowledge needed to call myself a beauty expert. If I want to be up-to-date on the latest style, color, or designs, I have to consult Pinterest and fellow bloggers to help me in this area of expertise. My lifestyle requires EASY, SIMPLE, and AFFORDABLE DIY projects. Recently, I discovered a great face mask that fit into each one of those stated categories. It’s extremely easy to make and apply. There are only two ingredients needed, is that simple or what? The two ingredients are affordable and one of them is probably something you already have in your home.
The two ingredients you will need are 1) Apple Cider Vinegar, I recommend using BRAGG Organic Raw Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar, you can find it in most grocery and health food stores. You can also substitute the apple cider vinegar with water. 2) Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay, I found mine at a local health food store but you can also purchase both of these items from Amazon.
First, you mix equal parts Apple Cider Vinegar and Clay. Once it’s mixed you apply it to your already washed face. You can use a brush to apply it or just spread the mixture on with your fingers. I recommend first applying it to only a small portion of your skin to make sure you don’t have any adverse reactions. My favorite thing about this mask is that the clay is chemical free, fragrance free, and all natural!
Leave the mixture on for 20-30 minutes. You will notice it starts to harden as it drys. You might also feel your face pulsate, this is perfectly normal. I did not experience any itching or burning at all during this process. Next, you gently wash it off with warm water. You will experience some redness on your face, this is temporary.
The clay used in this mask is designed to help pull toxins from your skin so don’t be surprised if your skin looks worse before it looks better. This is all part of the procedure to better healthier looking skin!
