|Yesterday we made a clay face mask with oils, but if you have extremely oily skin, that mask won’t work well for you. Today I’m going to show you a clay face mask without oils. This mask is definitely more fluid than yesterday’s mask, easier to apply and cool on the skin.
Collect needed items:
Weigh liquid items into mixing bowl and stir briefly. Weigh clay either directly into liquids or into separate bowl to be added to liquids. Stir. At first the mixture will look like pancake or waffle batter with all the bubbles. Don’t worry! Walk away from the mixture for 5 to 10 minutes. If you keep wanting to check the mixture, then do something else like roll the laundry, run a load of dishes, check your e-mail, walk out to the mailbox, dance a crazy person around the house, etc.
Now come back to check and stir your mixture. There aren’t many lumps or bubbles as there were before. Clay needs time to absorb all of the water. Just ask any good mud pie maker about giving clay the necessary time to absorb water.
The mask is smooth and ready to put in jars.
Wait a minute! Yesterday I forgot to share how to fill the jars. Simply fill a disposable plastic pastry bag or a zipper-style storage bag with the mixture. Cut off the end of the bag and squeeze the bag to fill the containers. Warning, this method will need strong hands. You can use a rubber scraper on the outside of the bag to scape everything last bit out.
