Awesome Aztec Clay
Have you heard of Aztec Healing Clay? If you haven’t its long past time that you become familiar with this ancient beauty secret for younger healthier skin!
Aztec healing clay is used like any other “cosmetic face mask,” but it is worlds better than most. In fact, Aztec clay is one of the most beneficial clay masks on the market, as it’s not only made from natural bentonite clay, but it’s amazing healing properties have been recognized for centuries.
If you googled it you would find that right now, Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay, is the most reviewed beauty product on Amazon right now.
So what is all the hubbub about? One big reason is probably that in a world of $200+ big name skincare products with “clinically proven” ingredients, the product that has inspired thousands of people to pen four-paragraph odes is a humble one. It’s a 100 percent bentonite clay powder that you mix with water or apple cider vinegar to use as a face mask. It costs only about $10 for a one-pound tub – one container can last you several months!
But more importantly than it’s surprisingly low price, is the fact that the stuff really works!
Bentonite clay is derived from volcanic ash, and the long list of substances it contains reads like the periodic table of elements – potassium, cesium, ytterbium, and on and on.
Although it’s commonly found in commercial clay mask preparations, the uses for bentonite clay go far beyond cleaning out your pores: It’s used in calamine lotion, to remove impurities from food oils, as a fabric softener in laundry detergent, to form animal feed pellets, and — my favorite — it’s the ingredient that causes cat litter to clump.
But, it is as a skincare regimen where it really shines. Because of all of those elements and minerals in it, Bentonite can actually lure out the positive-charged contaminants on your skin, due to a ionic pull – so it naturally exfoliates and detoxifies. It can also energize the body and has an alkalinity of 9.7 pH. It will draw the blood flow towards the cheeks and T-zones of the face due to constricting the skin and tissues – which tightens skin and gives it a healthier glow. It has been shown to lessen the appearance of scars, at a tenth of the price of expensive over-the-counter products such as Mederma.
It even helps to heal acne-prone skin. Using an Aztec clay mask for acne will help your skin to unblock its sebaceous glands which leads to acne, disinfect the pores which will kill the acne-causing bacteria that loves sebum build-up, and help to dry out and heal up whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, and other types of blemishes.
Not only is an Aztec clay simple to use, it doesn’t leave an uncomfortable film on the skin after treatment. It is non-oily and non-greasy.
