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)
SMALL MIXING BOWL
GLASS OF DRINKING WATER
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.
Step 4: HEAT YOUR MIXTURE
Heat your mixture in a microwave for a couple of seconds. I am visiting my daughter so I decided to make this fun and give her a facial. Apply generously to your face using upward motions. You can cut a couple of slices of cucumbers to go over your eyes to lighten dark circles. Leave mixture on for about 20 minutes. As you can see this mixture was a little too thin. It is also courser because I had to grind my granules. My daughter liked it courser but I prefer the powdered type.
Step 5: WASH FACE
Wash off the mask using warm water. Finish off with cold water to close your pours. Pat face dry with a towel. I have found that straight honey is wonderful for the skin. We put honey on my daughters face, hands, arms, and legs and left it on for about 10 minutes. Over all her reaction was she noticed her face was softer. She said she would like to try this again to make up her mind if she liked it or not.
