Glowing Clear Skin - Clay Mask Concoction

Since using up all of my packaged face masks, I was determined to come up with a recipe that would smooth, soothe, even out, detoxify and clear up my skin. I'm a huge fan of clay masks because they pull impurities to the surface (oil, dirt, etc) and detoxify the skin. There are several different types of clays, each for different skin types, and I'd personally suggest playing around with each one to figure out which works best for you. I really enjoy Kaolin (White) Clay because it's super gentle yet effective. I have been making and using this mask for a few weeks now and am completely in love. It calms down any redness, dry up blemishes and keeps my skin soft.

Feel free to play with the measurements and ingredients. This is just what I use and what has been working for me :)


  • 1 tablespoon White Clay
  • 1 tablespoon Green Clay
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon toner (you can use toner, water, tea, etc. A little liquid will help smooth it all out)
  • 5-6 drops Neem Oil (great for acne and any other skin irritations, however, you can leave this out or add in essential oils)

  • Mix clays together

    Add in honey, toner, and neem

    MIX! Mix until you reach a consistency that you like

     I'm sexy and I know it haha. Apply it to your face & neck or just face.
    How long you leave it on is entirely up to you. I will usually leave it on for at least 15 minutes, but you can leave it on for less or more time. I then rinse, use a gentle toner to remove any excess, and apply my tamanu and sea buckthorn oil. Voila! Super easy and your skin will love it.

    Let me know what your favourite facial mask concoction is or if you plan on trying this one!


    1. I also love mixing green clay with honey <3 usually i add some turmeric, nutmeg or green/white tea :)

      1. Ohhh, I'll have to try those lovely additions on my next one. Thanks for sharing! Xo

    2. This is such a good idea, I'll have to get some white clay and try it out! Also love the idea of using a brush to mix things up!

      1. Yess, do it! Let me know how it goes. Brush makes it so much easier and cleaner to apply.


    Thanks for the comment/feedback!
