Green Clay—Apple Cider Mask
Addressing problematic facial concerns is not fun, especially when it involves store-bought face cleanser which includes chemicals that harm our skin. But several natural home remedies can improve your skin, primarily when it affects the skin’s pores. If you’re experiencing large pores, oily skin or blackheads, try applying this face mask—reducing and shrinking the pores.
You will need:
- 1 tsp French Green Clay/ Bentonite Clay
- 1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar (Bragg’s Brand)
- Application brush
- Mini spatula
- Ceramic or glass bowl
I’m an apple cider vinegar fanatic. I use it for everything—apple cider is a great household cleaning agent, an acetic acid component for cooking, and great for the skin. The acetic acid properties are what make apple cider vinegar so valuable. Apple cider contains antibacterial and antifungal properties, which help in decreasing wrinkles, acne, and blemishes.
French Green Clay
We are all familiar with the green face mask that tightens our face; remember the movie, MASK featuring Jim Carrey? That’s how I feel after I apply this mask. So, why does this mask have such a tightening effect? The mask is actually reducing the appearance of pores, and that’s why I love it so much! French clay is excellent for its powerful oil-absorbing properties, making this mask great for oily skin.
