Because I'm all about that clay, 'bout that clay *pore cleansing*
All about that clay, 'bout that clay *rash helping*
Let me be pretty clear, I ain't twenty-two,
but I got oily skin, and zits a'plenty, too
I love the clay that helps me to erase
all the big pores and all the blem-ish-es!
Obviously, this Majestic Pure Indian Healing Clay isn't your ordinary clay, though it looks like dirt. Finely milled powdery grey dirt, though. Not only does it draw debris out of the skin as the clay swells and absorbs moisture, 100% Sodium Bentonite has a natural negative electrical charge and attracts positively charged molecules to it, which most toxins have. So this clay does double-duty at pulling toxins and debris out of the skin.
I use old foundation paddle-style brushes for all my masques now - I find them to be pretty useless at applying foundation anyway, but they are genius at mixing up and applying thick masques.
I couldn't believe the difference on his skin. His pate was smooth and soft, and not oily like usual. His skin was so soft, and his pores were clean. It was like he'd had a facial peel or something! I'm definitely asking him to masque with me more often.
I really liked this, too. It tingles, but not painfully so. It seemed to help bring this stress-induced cystic pimple on my chin to the surface, and now it's finally healing. I find that some of the best masques I've tried tend to bring pimples to a head - except for when I had the steaming facial. I imagine that if I opened the pores up ahead of time with steam, it might be an even better experience.
Because the Majestic Pure Indian Healing Clay also says its good for rashes, I asked my husband if I could put it on a new eczema patch that has erupted on his shoulder blade.
It's supposed to be great on other skin irritations like burns, insect bites, and the like. After seeing the husband's relief from his eczema, I'm definitely trying this clay next time I hurt myself. You can also use it in the bath, or as a foot soak.
Or, you can use it as inspiration for nail art, as I've done here. I used Novel Nail Polish Tan In A Can, a tan holo, as the base, and China Glaze Unplugged to make the dot pattern. I took Wet 'n Wild Black Creme and a small nail art brush, and did my best to replicate the pattern on the edge of the jar.
