Is one kind of clay mask just like another? I love how my face responds to clay masks in general - the tightening of pores, the deep detoxing, the softness of getting the right oil balance. There is something special about this Zakia's Moroccan Ghassoul Clay, though, that took my clay mask up a notch!
Ghassoul Clay sounds a little... ghoulish? But it totally brought my skin back to life. It's a clay powder mined from under the Atlas Mountains. It's very high in trace minerals, which are good for the skin.
This clay is very finely milled - don't sneeze around it, or *poof* it'll fly everywhere! it's very soft and smooth, too.
I only used the powder to make a face mask, but apparently it can be used to make body masks, or add it to shampoo, too.
A little nail art today, inspired by the subtle brightening of the clay. I used Beauty For Real Light On Your Toes, a denim blue with a subtle shimmer, and stamped using Ulta Candy Coated, a bronzy-brown.
Do you do DIY clay masks?
