Get a glowing and healthy skin with this mud mask recipe and kit -updated

One of the best homemade facial masks you can make is mud but I don't mean the mud from your back yard. Rather you can get the one from the beach, sea or ocean. The mud on the bottom of the ocean is very fine-grained and would work better on the face. Most mud masks consist of mud or clay specifically gotten from areas that have little contaminants like the sea. That's why they're generally not considered harmful or pore-clogging. Most dermatologists believe that mud masks can help unclog skin pores. In fact, some people also use these masks to help exfoliate skin and remove dead skin cells. Since oil and dead skin cells clog your pores and cause acne, a mask may actually help prevent acne.
One of the best clay mask sets I have used recently is this kit. It really keeps my skin healthy and keeps me from worrying about itching or dirt. With this kit, I found it quite easy to take care of my skin. The video below would explain better how I use it and why you should do the same.


You can combine this kit and any other mud/clay mask with other ingredients to provide some additional benefits to your skin.  For example, masks with honey in them can help increase the moisture content of your skin, without making it oily [source: Sorgen]. If you have especially sensitive skin, you can look for mud masks that contain ingredients like aloe vera, witch hazel, and jojoba oil -- these may help soothe and heal the skin. You can make these mud masks on your own and pamper your skin, free of charge from the comfort of your home.
1. Mix mud, aloe vera gel, rose water and oil(its best, you should use an oil according to its a function or the purpose of making the mask.
For moisturizing and toning- Rose or olive oil would do.
For acne-tea, tree oil would be okay.
2. Mix mud, lemon/lime juice, yogurt, and honey to get a moisturizing mask that lightens your skin and also keep acne and blemishes away.
3. Mix mud, egg yolk and milk thoroughly. Apply on your face and allow to sit for 10 minutes, then wash off.
Until my next post, remain blessed.
