Natural remedy for spectacular skin

By: AfriBeautyCollective Skin

Bentonite Clay is a natural clay mask consisting of detoxifying and healing minerals. This century-old pure natural powder is made from volcanic ash and has the ability to absorb substances including poisons and toxins that are trapped under the skin.

Why Use Bentonite Clay?

Draws Out Impurities

When mixed with water Bentonite clay becomes negatively charged which causes the clay to bind to toxins that have a positive electrical charge. When it comes into contact with said toxins, chemicals, impurities and heavy metals, the clay draws them out and releases its minerals into the body for its use. During this process the bentonite clay also pulls hydrogen from your skin cells, allowing room for oxygen which helps with circulation, and overall skin tone and health.

Leaves Skin Feeling Softer

Bentonite clay is loaded with silica, a trace mineral that strengthens connective tissue including muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone. In addition to all of these benefits it softens skin.

The skin is your bodies largest organ and requires as much care as any other part of your body. People have been rubbing clay on their bodies for centuries, and so should you. The reason this works is because of the negative charge emitted from the ions in the clay. These ions attract positively charged damaging, heavy metal ions and draws them from within the body. So you do yourself a favour and have a Bentonite spa day at home.

How To Use The Clay

Key Rules

Do not mix the clay in a metal bowl or use a metal spoon to make your mask! Bentonite clay will draw out the metals from the tools you are using and you will end up applying that to your skin.

Tip: Stick to plastic, porcelain, glass or wood tools.

This inexpensive remedy can be found online, in most pharmacies and health stores, and has a shelf life of up to five years.
