Illite clay is also known for its anti-septic and anti-bacterial properties that can make it a great soothing agent for acne, eczema, psoriasis and other skin related issues. Potent and vital, this unique living clay helps to absorb impurities and excess oil to deeply cleanse and exfoliate pores, leaving skin feeling silky soft, smooth and radiant. An ideal remedy for aggravated, inflamed or upset skin, this body mask can penetrate down to the cellular level for a deeper calming effect. Salve-ation!
To begin your ritual, dry brush skin in an upward motion before beginning the body mask, paying closer attention to cellulite-prone areas. In a glass or plastic dish, mix clay with a half cup of filtered water using a non-metal spoon until the clay forms a smooth paste. Add the rest of clay and another half cup of water to make a thick, clump-free paste. While standing in the tub, slather a thick layer of the clay paste on your entire body, starting with your feet (avoiding the soles of your feet) and working upwards to the neck. Leave the body mask on for 15 minutes, taking care to not allow the mask to dry completely or crack. Please note, light colored material will stain when in contact with the clay and should be avoided. Lightly rub mask off with a sponge, allowing for gentle exfoliation. Rinse-off thoroughly, pat dry. Moisturize with a light body oil or coconut oil. Rest and relax. Note: Clay will leave sediment in the tub after water is drained. Discard excess clay to avoid drain clog.
