Two Ingredient DIY Mask To Help Get Rid Of Acne

bentonite-clay-face-mask

Sometimes you cannot exactly pinpoint the cause of your acne. It may be stress, eating habits, a hormonal imbalance, or other reasons you may not suspect. Whatever the reason, you know that you want your acne gone and you want it gone now. It’s a good thing you clicked on this article because it details a very simple mask with two powerful, healing ingredients.

 

The two ingredients in this mask are raw apple cider vinegar and bentonite clay. When combined together, these ingredients can help to unclog pores, exfoliate the skin, rejuvenate skin tone, draw out impurities, help regenerate skin tissue, and leave the skin feeling soft.

 

The Powers Of Bentonite Clay:

This elemental substance is widely known in the world of natural healing. Formed from volcanic ash, bentonite clay contains iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and sodium. Mixing it with water gives the clay a negative charge, which helps to remove toxins from the body after topical application or ingestion. When applied to the skin, bentonite clay helps to remove sebum build-up and unclog pores, shrinking them in the process. It also helps you achieve softer skin and a youthful glow.

 

When you use this mask, it is integral to keep it on your face for about 10-20 minutes. If your skin is sensitive, keep it on for 10 minutes and you can work your way up to 20 minutes, provided your skin can handle it. If you need to get rid of blackheads and want help clearing up your skin, use the mask below.

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons bentonite clay
  • 2 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar

Instructions:

  • In a glass bowl, mix the bentonite clay and apple cider vinegar with a wooden or plastic utensil. The mask should be thick.
  • Wash your face before applying the mask. Apply to your face, avoiding the eye area and leave on for 10-20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

    Q: I'm in my last two days of the full body detox and my skin is just glowing outside of the two huge cystic acne pimples that popped up around day 6. They have not made any signs of going down, despite the facial steaming, Bentonite clay, peroxide, etc. Any suggestions?

    A:

    You should perform 1. FULL BODY DETOX. 2. TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE. Drink FEMALE HEALTH TEA daily. Also, use FEMALE BREAST OIL as well. SUGGESTION: Be patient and don't focus on the pimple. You are creating a block to your healing!

    Q: I have severe cystic acne that has caused acne scarring. Some are raised while others are depressed. I have come completely off of the acne medications I've been prescribed and over the counter medicines (i.e., Proactive) and gone the natural route. I first started by changing my diet and followed that with the Full Body Detox. I purchased the olive oil and Shea butter soap and Oz Oil and use this daily. In addition, I use Bentonite clay twice weekly and steam 3-5x a week followed by hydrogen peroxide. I have two questions, will this alone regenerate the scar tissue? And will this also be effective for hyper pigmentation?

    A:

    What you are using now will greatly help your condition (as well as hyper-pigmentation). Just keep doing what you're doing and just know that with Nature patience is required.

    Q: I am a 49 yr. old black female. When I was younger I had severe cystic acne that left me with what the dermatologist calls "ice pick scaring" and enlarged pores. I had 2 full face dermabrasions in my 30s and have been on retina A from then up until now. I have a pretty healthy diet and exercise routine. My Father and a couple of Uncles of mine also had the same type of skin problems, left with the same aftermath. I use French green clay masks which slightly reduce the look of the large pores and a sugar, honey, and lemon scrub (I make it at home) and I use it on my face. I'm not unattractive, but my skin looks rough and dull and pitted on my cheeks and nose. All the doctors talk about scar revision (cutting),laser treatments, chemical peels, and all sorts of invasive surgeries. I don't want to go that route again and I feel bad about the way I look sometimes. Are there ANY suggestions that you can give that will help me?

    A:

    SKIN PROBLEMS ARE UNDERLYING BLOOD PROBLEMS. CLEANSE YOUR BLOOD, GIVE YOUR BODY NUTRITION. STEAM YOUR FACE. KEEP CLAYING YOUR FACE. IMPROVE UPON YOUR DIET GO ALL RAW FOODS OR VEGAN DIET). A GOOD ARTICLE TO READ IS â€SKIN RASH†ON OUR SITE UNDER ARTICLES.

    Q: I spoke with you previously abt using the detox to remove heavy metals (arsenic, mercury). You said I should do the detox along with liquid bentonite clay(every other day while on the Full Body Cleanse).

    A:

    Yes! And you should use the Bentonite Clay every other day or if you like once a day. With the herbs being so potent, you don't need to take the Bentonite Clay four times a day or even every day, though you can if you desire to.

    Q: When I use the OZ OIL my outer skin is very soft and subtle. However deep down in the skin I feel very itchy. I have been assuming this is the effect of the oil doing its job. After a few weeks I got the feeling that I should try to loofa off the top layers of skin so the under skin could rejuvenate its self. I suppose I am writing because I want to check to make sure that the deep itching truly is a positive healing process before I purchase another bottle. Also to prompt you for any other ideas you might have to help my condition. It is purely beauty based btw I don't have any skin illness.

    A:

    The itching is a natural side effect that a healing crisis is taking place. Keep using the Oxy Oil at your discretion.

    Q: Unfortunately my child did get vaccinated due mostly in part to my ignorance to the law. I must admit the administration wore me down with the threats and medical exam fee that kept stating that their immunization was low. I don't believe the hype!!! I did give them charcoal and Bentonite clay right after the shots. I also took them both off of the meats and dairy completely (as we were transitioning into a raw food diet). They are looking at me long faced now but I believe that they will appreciate it later. :-) What I can take from this experience as a learning lesson and help others that maybe in a similar situation and simply do not know what to do. All the information that you have on your website is amazing (I am a Dherbs junkie). You said it best that knowledge is power and I truly understand that statement now. Thank you for all that you do and just know that your works are appreciated.

    A:

    Did you read our article on â€THE DANGERS OF VACCINATIONS†I have created a NEW vaccine waiver kit that folks will be able to order from Dherbs and give to all administrations. It includes an affidavit of objection, an affidavit to the nurse assuming 100% full responsibility for the inoculation, and a request for chemical ingredient of the vaccine. Have the child perform CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) too (within the next 30 days). Stay strong and move forward more knowledgeable than you were.

    Q: Thanks for your article about vinegar. I was just going to use it regularly with honey. Can you use it on your skin though? I was wondering if the acidity would be good for wrinkles or acne.

    A:

    Glad you enjoyed the "Vinegar" article. I don't recommend vinegar on the skin. However, a little inn bath water won't hurt (say about half a cup). I recommend Oz-Oil for the skin. Oxygen is what the skin needs.

I also want to ask you about the French green clay and the Moroccan red clay that is mentioned on your site. I break out alot and because of that I use a lot of makeup. I always wear foundation to cover the bumps and spots. I would love to get this product so please let me know where I can purchase it. I just want to go natural like I use to. Years ago I had a healthy head of hair now it's thinning out. Please let me know if this will help me.

    Q: I'm a raw vegan, and still suffering from acne. I stay away from all sweeteners, except fresh whole fruits. I started to have lots of greens juices these days, and my skin has improved a little bit. What about spices such a cayenne pepper, is it bad for your skin? What about goji berries? I know they are diet fruits, thats why I stay away from them for a while. I even fast for a while. I just don't know how my skin can getter better.

    A:

Our Healing Facial Kit will be out later this month. Recommended reading: The Mental Science Manual. Stay positive! Don't focus so much on the problem.

    Q: Is clay water good for the body system? I've been told that it has minerals that the body needs. Is this true?

    A:

    Clay water is good to drink for health purposes. It really doesn't have minerals for absorption as it mostly pulls harmful elements from your body. For minerals, take herbs. Visit our on-line store to get an idea or on our site do a SEARCH for minerals.

    Q: I was reading your article about vinegar being harmful to the body because of its acids and I was curious to know what you think of the Organic unpasturized, unfiltered apple cider vinegar with mother? I saw that at the end of the article it stated that "if you must" use vinegar to use the organic apple cider vinegar but, I have read many places that it has many health benefits such as reducing bad cholesterol, regulating blood pressure, eliminating toxic waste from the body, fighting fungal and bacterial infections, helping relieve joint pains, breaking down fat which helps in natural weight reduction.

    A:

    I approve of apple cider vinegar for health purposes. Some good stuff!

    Q: I am a fair-skinned African American and I was wondering what are your recommendations for skin care? I don’t wear makeup or anything; I am just interested in finding a cleansing, moisturizing regimen for daily use. All the products I have seen are SO expensive and or full of toxins. I don’t have any skin problems such as acne. I noticed you have several soaps but I was unsure as to which are best for my face. Finally, is there really a need to wear sunscreen? Is there such a thing as "safe" sunscreen?

    A:

    SOUNDS LIKE YOU MAY BE INTERESTED IN OUR ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL MANUAL E-BOOK WHICH HAS A LISTING OF HEALTHY/ALTERNATIVE PRODUCTS INCLUDING SKIN CARE PRODUCTS. IT'S AVAILABLE FROM THE ON-LINE STORE ($10). THE NUBAIN HERITAGE SOAPS WE SELL ARE GOOD BUT I ACTUALLY RECOMMEND KISS MY FACE BRANDS FOR SKIN CARE PURPOSES. THERE IS REALLY NO NEED TO WEAR SUNSCREEN. SUNSCREEN IS PROMOTED BECAUSE IT WAS INVENTED AND SO IT MUST SELL, SO A THEORY THAT THE SUN WAS DAMAGING TO THE SKIN WAS CREATED AND SUNSCREEN BEGAN TO SELL.

    Q: I am having really bad dry skin problems. My scalp is very dry and I can pull huge chucks of skin out of my hair. My fore head is peeling and around my nose area is peeled off and has left me with red raw skin around my nose. I wanted to know what should I do to help solve my dry skin problem?

    A:

    Wewould suggest you perform our Full Body Detox. Also, purchase the Full Body Cleanse Companion booklet and perform some of the soaks mentioned in there. The best soak is to soak in 2-3 boxes of sea salt and 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide for about an hour per day. After getting out of the tub, rub our Oxy-Oil over your entire body to help the skin breathe.
