Skin saving clay mask for less than the cots of a cab ride downtown.0
Several months ago I was having a particularly gross pre-period break-out episode. My friend gently suggested I get this clay mask that apparently works wonders on her sensitive skin and her roommate’s oily skin. My instinct to brush off her suggestion – I mean, I am the beauty product reviewer here – was rebuffed by her insistent urging. “It’s only $7.99. Just try it!” So later that day and desperate, I went to Whole Foods and picked up a jar. The instructions suggested mixing with apple cider vinegar, although plain water can also be used, so I got a bottle and headed home. The woman at the Whole Foods beauty section flat out told me that the mask would make my face pulsate, but she looked wimpy so I totally blew it off and slathered on the mask. I waited. Um, no pulsating, and went about my business.About fifteen minutes later a stingy heartbeat crept into my face and it started to beat through my cheeks, forehead, nose and chin. Some people described this as a massage. Unfortunately, these people have never had their faces massaged. It is a face heartbeat, and that is the best way to describe it. I have absolutely no scientific evidence for this, but I think that during the pulsating the mask is extracting anything bad from your face because when I wiped off the mask my skin was flawless.
Wipe off the mask with warm water. (Leaving it on for too long makes it more difficult to wipe away.) Water must be warm and you have to wipe hard because, after all, it is hardened clay on your face. And your face turns red and stays red for about 15 minutes so don’t plan to go anywhere immediately after. Immediately, you notice clearer pores, smooth and even skin tone, and, when the redness disappears, radiance. Use weekly or biweekly as directed. Indian Healing Clay can also be used for body wraps, foot soaks, insect bites or clay baths.
Aztec Indian Clay Healing Clay will save your skin. Yes, it is the miracle mask. The all natural ingredients, well ingredient, is never tested on animals and free of everything except clay powder from Nevada. I don’t really understand the secret. I mean, they sell it at Whole Foods, which doesn’t really seem so “secret.” The best part, Indian Healing Clay is cheap. So cheap I laughed when I wrote that. At New York City Whole Foods it costs $7.99. And if you find yourself milling about outside of the metro area, you can find it for $5.99. I mean, I have $5.99 in change at the bottom of my purse. An average size apple cider vinegar will run you around $5 as well, and both last for months and months. I’m not sure how the Aztec Clay people make any money, but as long a they keep packing that clay, I will be the happiest New Yorker alive. And you’ll be able to tell by my glowing skin.
