Our skin is the largest organ of the body. It is the first line of defense against outside forces. We must protect what protects us. I have been in love with skin care for years. I believe no matter how good your makeup looks, if your skin is bad, your makeup will be bad too. A few years ago I ordered some Moroccan Red Clay Powder from Amazon. It was very affordable. The first few times I used the red clay powder I mixed it with water. I loved how smooth it made my skin feel. Initially my face was red. But it subsided after a few hours. Then I saw someone on YouTube add Apple Cider Vinegar to their red clay. Of course I had to try that. #youtubemademedoit The results were quit different. Once I washed the mask off my face, several blackheads came to the surface. This freaked me out the first time, but after 3 days my skin was the most beautiful it had ever been.
Benefits of Moroccan Red Clay Mask that I have noticed are:
- pulls blackheads to the surface
- exfoliates dead skin, leaving it brighter
- detoxes skin, leaving a healthy glow
Benefits of adding Apple Cider Vinegar to the mask:
- promotes healthy pH balance
- removes toxins
- helps maintain healthy skin
I have been struggling with finding a natural deodorant that actually works for me. Since I am in the “try this one” phase, I have started using this mask under my arms as well. I have noticed those razor burns are gone and I am not as smelly as I used to be. Leaving me more time to find a deodorant that will work for me.
Disclaimer – Make sure you try the clay on a small area of your body before using it on your face. Everyone’s skin is different and what works for me may not work for you.
