Moroccan rhassoul clay is a fantastic beauty tool that can help to visibly enhance the appearance of your skin. It is a lovely ochre-colored clay with a silky-smooth texture. Mined in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, this extraordinary mineral-rich clay is unparalleled in its ability to absorb impurities from the skin. It cleanses deeply, clearing pores and tightening skin without harsh exfoliants or chemicals. Used as a beauty tool for centuries by Roman and Egyptian nobility, rhassoul often appears now in high-end spa treatments. It is especially useful as you age because your skin does not retain the necessary trace minerals to keep it firm and wrinkle-free. The high concentration of natural minerals (such as magnesium, calcium, potassium and iron) in rhassoul help replenish depleted minerals in your skin, resulting in a firmer, plumper, and more even-toned complexion. Apart from absorbing harmful substances, rhassoul also has natural antimicrobial properties, making it an effective ingredient for detoxification and blemish-prone skin. Clinical testing has shown it to be effective in improving skin elasticity, unclogging pores, and removing dead skin cells and excess surface oils. It can also be used as a scalp treatment to absorb oil, dirt, sebum and to cleanse and clarify hair. No natural beauty toolkit should be without this fabulous clay!
To make your natural clay mask: Add 1 teaspoon of warm water or liquid (see below) to 1 tablespoon of clay powder in a small bowl or cup, and mix well. Add more water if you prefer a thinner mask and less water if you like your facial mask to be thicker. While clay can be applied with your fingers, a fast and even application can be achieved using a makeup brush to “paint” the clay mixture onto your skin. Be sure to apply under your jawline and to your neck and décolletage. Do not use expensive brushes. Rinse the brush well after application and stand upright to air dry.
Once applied, leave the mask for 5-15 minutes. Most people (with normal or oily skin) can leave 10-15 minutes to dry. However, if you have dry or sensitive skin, you may wish to leave it on for just 5 minutes before removing it. Use a warm wet cloth, muslin or flannel to soften the dry clay before gently washing off. Alternatively, you can apply your mask just before your shower and simply wash it off there.
There are endless ways to use natural clay. Instead of using plain warm water with your clay, you can also use your favorite gentle toner or hydrolat (floral water). These will add extra skin-soothing or astringent benefits depending on your choice of liquid. Raw organic honey boasts numerous conditioning, healing, and antibacterial properties and is particularly good for blemished or problem skin Freshly puréed organic fruits and vegetables can also be added. Strawberries, high in vitamin C, are excellent for their astringent and brightening properties. Cucumber soothes and conditions stressed or sensitive skin. Plain, unsweetened yogurt added to your rhassoul treatments will provide natural lactic acid, resulting in glowing skin without resorting to harsh synthetic chemical peels. Be imaginative in creating your perfect beauty mask!
