Next Topic: Gunk Magnet Facial
Maybe I should work on my titles. Nah.
Here’s the deal:
1. If you give yourself a pore-cleaning facial after you’ve been sweating, your pores are already open and trying to expel things. If you put a clay mask on, the clay and the sweat are on the same team!
2. You can make a very cheap mud mask that (I swear) rivals any spa mud mask. Bentonite clay powder mixed with water (or apple cider vinegar if you don’t have sensitive skin) forms mud. This is special mud! Spread it on (after you’ve washed and dried your face), and as it dries, it shrinks. You’ll feel it tighten, and can leave it on for 15 minutes or until it’s mostly dry. It draws out toxins and gunk. Oh, and there’s no recipe–just add a little water at a time and mix until you get mud. You can save the leftovers in an airtight container for quite a long time (at least a month)
If you slather it on thickly and then leave it for a while, it gets really hard and starts to crack. I recommend that you first test it on a patch of skin on the side of your face, just to make sure it doesn’t do anything weird to you (just like anything you’re going to put on your skin). I also recommend that rather than trying to wash it off in the sink, you just wash it off it in the shower—it turns back into mud when it gets wet and can be really messy in the sink.
You can do this up to 2-3 times per week, but you might notice some redness (and burning if you use ACV instead of water). Do it at night! The redness will go away, and your skin will be so soft you won’t be able to keep your hands off it (but you should!).
Would you try it?! (or have you tried it?)
What is your favorite thing to do to groom or get beautiful? Do you have any cheap and easy tricks?
Do you like bitter foods? I used to hate them, but I think since adding more greens into my diet…I crave them, and actually crave fewer sweets!
