Fresh Cucumber and French Clay Mask
The Clay ReasonApart from having all kinds of benefits for the skin, clay masks are a dream to work with – they stay where they are put and don't make a drippy mess of your kitchen, bathroom, and clothes.
The Fresh Food ReasonFresh ingredients bring the maximum cocktail of vitamins, moisturizing, firming, and other skin-loving goodies to the mix.
The Best of Both WorldsThis mask marries clay with food and is not only easy to make, it will leave your skin feeling like you have just come from a full-on luxury facial treatment. The best part – you only need 4 ingredients!
Raw honey: soothes, moisturizes, tones, and heals (I always use organic)
Raw cucumber: moisturizes, calms, and tones (I always use organic)
Hempseed oil: moisturizes (can be replaced with olive, hazelnut, or sweet almond oil)
French Green Clay: removes impurities and cleanses (can be replaced with white clay)
To remove: wet a natural sponge to soften and remove the mask.
Pat dry. Finish with a spritz of hydrosol and light layer of face oil.
Enjoy your gorgeous toned skin!

Here is an article that I wrote all about choosing food items for your skin type to make into masks:
I'd say my favorites at this point in time are honey, vinegars (ACV and Balsamic), lemon juice, oats, avocado and grapes.
