Hey beautiful people! hope your having a great day, so I’ve been thinking to share my thoughts and views on the Aztec Secret Healing Clay Mask as most of you have seen it on Instagram and other social media as well, this product is selling like crazy. It is a good facial remedy clay.I don’t go for facials to salon’s or any other skin treatment because I like to try organic products on my skin, always looking for organic masks to better my skin texture as clay helps in clearing up the pimples, blackheads and even for skin tightening , I’ve been using Multani mitti (Mud Mask) in the past several times when I had teenage acne all over my face and it did help me in drying out them and clearing my skin, so this Aztec mask is a bit similar to multani mitti (mud mask) but with way more benefits, continue reading:

Over 1800 years ago, Cleopatra used clay from the Nile River and the Arabian Desert as part of her beauty ritual. This clay is made from minerals such as iron, sodium, calcium, potassium and magnesium, formed from volcanic ash. Calcium bentonite clay is used for Facials, acne, body wraps, clay baths, foot soaks, chilled clay for knee packs and insect bites. Clay works both internally and topically to help detox and clarify. This clay is like a magnet , it pulls the impurities out of your skin, If you desire a fresh clean and clear skin here are some reasons you should know about this clay:
Benefits of using the Calcium Bentonite Clay Mask:
-It unclogs the skin pores and shrinks them.
-It helps control the overproduction of sebum,blackheads or whiteheads are produced due to an excess of sebum.
-It draws out the toxins from the skin.
-Bentonite clay is loaded with silica, a trace mineral that strengthens connective tissue including muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone making your skin super soft.
-It helps reduce the appearance of scars by healing the skin and reduce inflammation and redness.
-It is safe for all skin types: normal, oily, combination or acne prone skin.
-It can be used to regenerate skin tissues reducing fine lines and wrinkles while fighting bacteria and infection.
-It can even be used instead of face powder. Free from any damaging ingredients, clay is a safe, non-toxic cosmetic staple that every woman should have.
Benefits of Raw Apple Cider Vinegar:
It restores pH levels in skin from becoming too oily or too dry, helps reduce acne, pimples, blemishes and keep skin clear, alpha hydroxy acids gives you fresh new skin, it can help reduce age spots, it helps to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, it exfoliates the skin by removing the toxins out of your skin.
How to make the clay mask:
Put a spoon of this grayish green clay powder in a NON metal bowl or a glass bowl and mix it with RAW APPLE CIDER VINEGAR until it gets creamy, I love to use Raw ACV from the brand Bragg , apply it to the face, neck, shoulders or any other area which you want, wait for it to completely dry wash it off with damp water you will feel skin tightening as it pulsates the dirt, use it once every 2 weeks.
Other ways to use Aztec Calcium Bentonite healing clay are:
–Fight off morning sickness – Pregnant women who find themselves a bit queasy may get relief when they take ½ teaspoon of clay in water a couple times a day.
–Detoxifying bath – Add ¼ cup of clay to your bath water along with some lavender essential oil for a relaxing and detoxifying bath that will leave your skin smooth and refreshed.
–Baby powder – To ease the soreness and inflammation of a rash, sprinkle a little clay on your baby. You can also mix some clay with a little water to form a healing mask for the sore area.
–Toothpaste – Mix a little clay with your regular toothpaste. The clay will help draw toxins out of your oral cavity. You can even mix ½ teaspoon of clay in with a 1/4 cup of water and use as a rinse to draw impurities from your mouth.
For bites, stings and burns, make a creamy layer using a thick layer of clay on your skin covered with a wet cotton cloth , Leave the cloth on the affected area for about 2 hours and change it until you experience relief.
Caution: Test the clay on less sensitive areas of your body before using on the face, after you rinse the mask from your face you will see slight redness but nothing to worry about it means the clay worked lol because it acts as a vacuum pulling the dirt out from your skin, I bought the Aztec healing clay mask from a FB page in Ksa, @fashion&makeup Riyadh, do check it out, Bragg ACV you can buy from Al-Tamimi markets in Ksa, In Lahore, Pakistan I bought the ACV from Jalal sons, its also easily available at Al-Fateh store or any pharmacy or stores.
Final thoughts: I love using this mask like a spa treatment at your own home making my skin look fresh and youthful, I even used it on my husband’s face to detoxify the skin, he loved the results after using it, I love the quantity in the jar it would last you a longtime depending on how much you use it, for dry skin I would suggest to pour 2-3 drops of tea tree essential oil and use a moisturizer after you wash off the mask, its affordable easily available with a lots of benefits, Yes I would purchase it again and again inshAllah, do share your thoughts on this what are your experiences? Enjoy and stay beautiful 🙂
