What To Do:

Simply get all the ingredients in a bowl and mix until you have a rich, creamy consistency that is rather sticky. Remember, this mask is supposed to stick to you face after all. Done.

How To Apply:

As always, you should start with a clean, dry face. Apply your red clay mask evenly on your skin avoiding the mouth and eye area. Massage into you face to make sure that your skin soaks up the good stuff and the mask sucks out the bad, and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes. The best way to time how long to leave a clay mask it by using the “touch” test. According to Sharon McGlinchery, pro facialist and creator of her own skin care line, MMV Organic Skincare. ..

"There are three phases of a clay mask. There's the damp phase where your skin drinks in the beneficial minerals from the outside. Then you have the start of the dry phase, which exercises your capillaries and stimulates blood flow as the mask cools and contracts. But then there's the dry phase, which draws out moisture from the surface of your skin, causing dehydration and irritation.”

So the perfect time to wash off your mask it right before it gets to the third phase. Once you see your mask getting lighter and starting to dry but still is a bit sticky, that’s your cue to cleanse.
