Picture of KITTY LITTER FACIAL  MASK

The main ingredient to expensive  masks is bentonite clay.  Kitty litter with no added ingredients is nothing more than bentonite clay.  Here is a recipe  you can make that will give you a professional mask costing  pennies to make.  


The reason this mask works so well is when water is added to the kitty litter it changes the molecular structure and  an electrical charge is produced which draws out the toxins into the clay removing them from your body.  If you do not like the idea of using kitty litter for a mask you can buy bentonite clay at most health food stores.  
This mask works best on oily skin with large pores.  Do not use if you have dry skin.

Step 1: WHAT YOU WILL NEED

KITTY LITTER ( sandy type is best) MAKE SURE IT IS 100% natural with NO additives
ESSENTIAL OIL your choice 
COFFEE GRINDER OR HAMMER/ CLOTH ( if you have granular types)
HONEY
SMALL MIXING BOWL
MEASURING CUP
WATER
CUCUMBER
SPOON
GLASS OF DRINKING WATER
MICROWAVE 

Step 2: GRIND LITTER if using granules

I wanted to use what I had on hand so I ground up my litter using a hammer and a cloth because I am away from home and did not have a coffee grinder. It is much easier to use the fine ground kitty litter.  

Step 3: POUR LITTER INTO A SMALL BOWL

Pour about a half a cup of the finely ground litter into a bowl and add just enough water to make a thick paste.  Add a drop of your essential oil to give it  a more pleasant smell.  Stir until you have the desired consistency.  

Wash your face with hot water and cleanser to remove make up and dirt.  Pat face dry.  


It seems great. I will try it.

Isn't kitty litter bad for pregnant women, or is that a wife's tale? haha
It's used cat litter that pregnant women are told to avoid (and cat poo in general) because of the risk of toxoplasmosis, caused by a parasite. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxoplasmosis Yeah, yeah, wikipedia isn't the best source. Here's another one. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/toxoplasmosis/DS00510

I am guessing if it is bad it is after cats have used it and changing the litter would be bad for pregnant women possibly because of the bacteria. I have not heard anything but that would be my guess.

Well......sounds good......looks cool. I have used bentonite in the process of "clogging" pipes to prevent water and gases from coming through. It came in a dust form , added water to pump it in the pipe. I do know "Fuller's Earth" is the clay used to make many brands of Cat Litter though. It is about 60 feet below earth level. The "dust" from it is very absorbent too. It will suck up an oil spill better than most things I have ever seen. If possible I suggest using the "Dust" from the granules and mix with water or lemon to a "peanut butter" texture. Just some input here, not taking away from this idea.

Your comment is most welcomed, thanks for the input.
In India they use a mixture of honey and tumeric, in fact that is a tradition for brides on their wedding day. It makes the skin glow. (no, you will not look jaundiced, the yellow washes away with the honey.) Thanks for a good idea!

Wow I would of never thought of that! I might use olive oil instead of an essential oil since I don't know if mine would irritate my face.
sunshiine (author)  causeeffect4 years ago
That is a great idea! I will try it next time.
