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.  


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)

I'm so glad to know about this because buying bentonite from the health food store is so expensive! But one very important thing not mentioned here is that you can not use metal containers, utensils, or anything metal for bentonite. The metal will effect the magnetic charge the clay carries, therefore neutralizing it's effectiveness. Also, raw honey works so much better than regular store bought honey. And, since most kitty litter is sodium bentonite, don't mix vinegar with it. I wipe my skin with raw (with the 'mother') apple cider vinegar first, then apply the facial mask after the vinegar is completely dry.
<p>Why is raw honey better for your face? I'm not sure I understand how that would work since honey is honey. I'm eager to learn though.</p>
Honey is pasteurized like milk. Pasteurization is a heating process that &quot;sanitizes&quot; it. But killing off of the bad stuff also kills off the enzymes and nutrients.
<p>So raw honey isn't pasturized? I didn't know that. Very interesting!</p>
Hi Becky,<br>Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing this information. I am featuring this comment so readers won't miss it. Have a safe and happy holiday season.<br>sunshiine~
<p>ds s very interesting n helpful,,wl try it with olive oil...tnx a lot !</p>
Would this work on oily skin? Because I know cat litter absorbs liquids, right? Wonderful idea! Never thought of it=)
<p>My guess is that it will! Cheap to try so go for it! I hope your day shines!</p><p>sunshiine~</p>
<p>can i do lemon juice or pure juice instead of expensive oils?</p>
Cool I did a similar facial instead mine was for acne and was made of honey and cinnamon.
It seems great. I will try it.
Thanks for commenting and do have a happy 4th.<br />Sunshiine
great idea, but i have cleaned TOO many cat boxes to ever do this.<br>
I hear you! LOL
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 &quot;clogging&quot; 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 &quot;Fuller's Earth&quot; is the clay used to make many brands of Cat Litter though. It is about 60 feet below earth level. The &quot;dust&quot; 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 &quot;Dust&quot; from the granules and mix with water or lemon to a &quot;peanut butter&quot; 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!
Thanks, interesting comment.
It's not used kitty litter is it?
LOL I liked the pun.
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.
That is a great idea! I will try it next time.
