Clay masks are fantastic for balancing oily skin. Honey aids in the breakdown of excess oil, and clay absorbs it while gently exfoliating.
Two of the best clays for balancing natural oils are bentonite and Moroccan red. They also have antibacterial properties that can be used to treat acne-prone skin.
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoon Bentonite Clay or Morocan Red Clay
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
In a small nonreactive bowl, combine clay, honey, and apple cider vinegar (never use metal when working with clay). Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and gently massage into the face and neck. Remove the mask with warm water first, then cold water after 15 minutes.
