Bentonite Clay: Created By Nature For Your Skin

Find the underlying cause of acne and then eliminate it! To deal with anything effectively you must first understand it and then eliminate the cause of it. This applies to everything we want to change about our selves that we don't like.

What Causes Acne and Pimples?

Simply oil glands, known as sebaceous glands, which are deep in the skin. These oil glands produce sebum. Each oil gland is connected to a tiny canal that contains a hair called a follicle.

The glands produce oil that flows to the surface of the skin to lubricate the hair follicles and the surrounding skin. When your skin is over oily it means that the oil gland is enlarged and over production of oil is created and they become blocked. This results in the oil getting within the skin pores causing blackheads or whiteheads.

How To Successfully Clear Acne and Pimples

Here at Elixir Skin Food we highly recommend a thorough cleansing routine. First, use the Clay Mask (Directions below) daily for two weeks, then twice a week. The best clay for this is pure Calcium Bentonite Clay. A mask with bentonite clay has amazing drawing power to help open and clean out the pores. It removes excess sebum and is an excellent exfoliant. Bentonite Clay is gentle and won't dry out your skin.

Bentonite Clay contains natural antibacterial properties that help with the healing process. Remember that in any healing process it can get worse before it gets better. This is well known and called the "healing crisis" So, if you find after a couple of day that your skin has worsened, please don't worry because this is actually a good thing, the toxin are coming out of your skin.

Stick with your cleansing routine and you will see improvements. You may feel your face tingle after you rinse off the mask, this is completely normal. Bentonite Clay increases the blood circulation to the skin. You may also consider cleansing from the inside as well.

Facial Cleansing With Bentonite Clay

Bentonite Clay Mud Mask Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon of bentonite clay
  • 1-teaspoon organic honey
  • 1-2 teaspoon of warm filtered water (you may need more)
  • 1/2 tsp powdered chamomile flowers
  • 2 drops of lavender organic essential oil

Mud Mask Instructions

In a small vessel mix together the powered chamomile flowers with the bentonite clay. Now add the organic honey and mix to a paste. Add enough warm water to form a thin paste. Add the organic lavender essential oil mix again. Apply straight away to the face and neck in a circular motion, keep away from your eyes. Leave this on your face for between 10 to 15 minutes or until it has dried. Now wash off with a face cloth that you have soaked in warm water. If you can take really hot water on your face this will really help to take off the clay and you wonÕt need to rub your skin. Dry your skin with a warm towel and feel the difference.
