DIY Clay Mask

This morning I woke up and was disgusted by my pores… okay maybe thats an exaggeration but still, I wasn’t happy. I figured I would take this opportunity to show you how I deal with clogged pores: my DIY clay mask. It’s super easy and super cheap (as most of my DIY projects are) and I’ve found it to be really helpful in drawing out the gunk in my pores. Clay is known for drawing out the impurities, and it is widely used in beauty products, you can buy SO many clay masks, and while I’m sure they work well, mine is super simple (two ingredients) and easy to make at home. All you need is clay powder – I bought mine at a local health food store for under $6) and water.

I started with a clean dry face.
