I love a good clay mask any time of year but particularly in the summer, when sweat and sunscreen are in the picture. Clay is wonderful because it’s very gentle on the skin while drawing out dirt and impurities from pores. And I love the refreshed, clean feeling you get after using skincare products made with clay.
I asked our friends at Women’s Heritage in Santa Barbara to put together a clay mask recipe for us this month. Made with white clay, which is especially good at removing dead skin cells due to its high silica content, along with a mix of dried herbs and raw honey, and free of unnecessary stabilizers, this mask checks all of the boxes for me. Plus, thanks to the fact that the recipe calls for equal parts of all ingredients, and allows you the freedom to mix up the herbs based on what you have on hand, you’ll only have to follow the instructions once to learn the recipe by heart.
