Green clay, also called montmorillonite, is a naturally occurring clay rich in minerals and with highly absorbent properties. As it dries, it cleanses pores and draws impurities from the skin. Simultaneously, gently astringent witch hazel and calming lavender tighten the pores and help to create a clear complexion. Try making this face mask to cleanse your skin thoroughly.
- 2 tsp green clay powder,
- 2 tsp witch hazel,
- 1 egg, lightly beaten,
