This simple mask is one of my favourite remedies for acne prone skin.
Once to twice a week, it helps me purify my skin, reduce my acne spots and prevent blackheads. It’s a super simple recipe, with only three ingredients, that you can use on your face, but also on other parts of your body if needed.
Bentonite clay has been used for detoxification for ages. I have to admit that adding apple cider vinegar to it felt a bit unnatural at first, especially because of the strong smell, but believe me when I say, it is worth it! Apple cider vinegar contains organic acids that help to kill the bacteria which causes acne. It is also very effective in reducing acne scars.
Ladies with hormonal acne, please note that there is no topical remedy for hormonal acne, but we strongly believe that some of these natural remedies will reduce inflammation and redness. Some people use apple cider vinegar every day, some even drink a shot of it daily, but I personally prefer using it twice a week inside this mask.
- 2 tablespoons of bentonite clay
- 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
Mix the clay and vinegar, add some water if the clay is too dry.
Note: be careful if you have a sensitive skin. I recommend leaving the mask on for 10 minutes initially, just to see how your skin reacts to the mask. My skin is quite reactive and stays red for almost an hour after rinsing it (I leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes), but that’s okay as I don’t feel like it’s too dry or uncomfortable. So, if your face becomes red, don’t panic! You can use aloe vera gel or rosehip oil to calm the redness.
Enjoy this relaxing time at home to try out new masks and new ways of taking care of yourself. We hope it'll become a staple in your skincare routine!
J’adore! Recette on ne peut plus simple et rapide à réaliser. Sa texture mousseuse est hyper agréable à appliquer sur le visage.
Pour ma part, l’odeur du vinaigre de cidre ne me dérange pas, ça doit être mon côté breton 😊. Je le laisse poser 20 minutes et après déjà 3 utilisations je sens ma peau plus purifiée. Je n’ai pas eu besoin d’ajouter d’eau non plus. Merci The Bioty House!
