What they had, however, was what nature could offer – clay.
Considered the “world’s most powerful facial,” Aztec Secret’s bentonite clay is a revival of the amazing beauty uses of clay, which has been dated back hundreds of years.
Aztec Clay, also branded as Indian Healing Clay, is from Death Valley, California. This powerful detox treatment has been sun-dried for up to six months in temperatures that reach as high as 134 degrees.
This process draws almost all of the minerals found on Earth that are negatively charged. Since toxins are positively charged, these minerals work well in drawing out all the toxins to the surface of your skin, which makes it easy for you to remove and cleanse.
As this is 100% natural calcium clay treatment, you don’t have to worry about chemicals when you apply it on your skin.
The label shows what this product can be used for – facials, acne, body wraps, clay baths, foot soaks, knee packs (chilled), and insect bites. Yes, it’s not just used for facials. It can be used for other things, too!
The benefits you get from Aztec Secret’s Bentonite Clay are endless.
Below are just a few of the many wonders this product can offer you.
As part of your beauty regimen, you can use Aztec Secret’s bentonite clay by simply dissolving it in water or apple cider vinegar (ACV).
I recommend using ACV over water as ACV has proven to be effective in beauty regimens and actually dissolves the bentonite clay better than water. As soon as it is dissolved, you can apply the mixture on to your face (or any part of your skin) and leave it on to dry.
Do not be afraid of the pulsating sensation you might feel while you have it on as this is just the effect of the clay drawing out all the impurities from your pores. After about 20 – 30 minutes (or it may also depend on how thick the mixture is on your face), you can wash off the mixture with water and apply toner and moisturizer.
Warning: Aztec Secret’s bentonite clay (or any other clay mask for that matter) can be drying to the skin, so it is important to apply moisturizer after.
On another note, remember to not let bentonite clay come in to contact with any metal object as this reduces the effectiveness of the product. When you mix it, use either a glass or a plastic bowl or cup.
One word – AFFORDABLE. Amazingly, this product cleanses, detoxifies, and does what other expensive masks can do at a fraction of the price. This all-natural product provides cleansing, healing, and nourishment that the skin needs at a very low price. It is about $8-$50, depending on how much you’d like to buy.
