Meet The Mask - Envigorating Green Clay

Green Clay is good for normal to dry skin and this mask is a wonderful pick-me-up that refreshes and rejuvinates. Using green tea as the liquid and adding almond oil brings the added benefits of toning and moisturizing. This is enough for one application.

You will need the following ingredients 
- Green Clay 
- Green tea infusion
- Sweet almond oil
- Cedarwood essential oil (optional, but a great addition)

And you will need the following items
- small container
- teaspoon
- tablespoon
- smallish brush (for applying the mask)
- natural sponge (for removing the mask)

Making The Mask

1. Put approx 2 tablespoons (about 30 ml) liquid into the small container
2. Sprinkle/add a tablespoon + a teaspoon (about 25 gr) of the clay and let it all sink into the water (to avoid lumps: do not stir until the liquid has absorbed the clay)
3. Stir until you have an even mixture. If necessary, add liquid or clay to adjust to your desired texture. This mask works best if it can be applied in a thickish layer, so don't make the mixture too runny.
4. Add 1 teaspoon almond oil
5. Add 4 drops cedarwood essential oil (no more!) and stir until evenly distributed

Applying The Mask

Always start by washing your face and neck with a good cleanser, then lightly patting the skin dry. Now apply the mask with the brush in a thick layer, leaving the area around your eyes and lips free.

Let the mask sit about 10 minutes. Ideally, lie down and relax. This mask will start to feel taut as it dries, but if you have applied a thick enough layer, it should stay relatively soft. Do not allow the mask to dry completely.

Removing The Mask

Wet the natural sponge and carefully soften and remove the mask. Rinse and repeat until the mask is completely gone. Pat your face dry and apply a (non-alcoholic!!) skin tonic or spritz your face with a skin mist. Finish with a good moisturizer or a light application of face oil.
