BENTONITE CLAY FACE MASKS FOR FLAWLESS AND BEAUTIFUL SKIN

bentonite clay

Bentonite clay is also known as the ”healing clay” because it heals and cleanses the body. It is made from volcanic ashes.It was named by Wilbur C. Knight in 1898 after the Cretaceous Benton Shale near Rock River, Wyoming. Bentonite clay can be used both internally and externally.It detoxifies the body by removing and absorbing toxins, heavy metals, chemicals and dirt from the body.Bentonite Clay consists of minerals like silica, calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, and potassium.There are 3 types of Bentonite Clay such as Sodium bentonite, Potassium bentonite, and Calcium bentonite.When Bentonite Clay is used internally, it helps with digestion, pH balance, constipation, oral care, providing minerals to the body, various skin problems, heartburn, stomach ache, vomiting, etc.Externally it can be used in making shampoos, Bentonite Clay face masks, bug bites, cuts and scrapes, deodorant, detox bath, minor burns, toothpaste, etc

BENTONITE CLAY FACE MASKS :

Bentonite Clay is a cream colored fine, velvety, odorless and non-staining powder. It is a swelling clay as it swells rapidly when comes in contact with any fluid.Normally the mixture of Sodium Bentonite Clay and Calcium Bentonite Clay are used for various skin purposes.Although this Montmorillonite clay has tons of benefits, here I will suggest only the Bentonite clay face masks which you can use to get a beautiful and flawless skin.

Important Notes:
1.Do not keep Bentonite Clay in any metallic container as it will reduce its effectiveness.
2.Use any glass/plastic/wooden containers for making face masks or storing it. Any spatula or spoon to mix the ingredients should also be non-metallic.
3.Before using the mask make sure to do a patch test behind your neck or elbow to avoid any allergic reactions further.
4.While using the mask your skin may feel tightened or some tingling sensations.But if it causes severe irritation then stop using it.
5.After using the mask skin may look little pink or red as it increases the blood flow in the skin while pulling out the toxins and impurities.

JUICY CHEMISTRY ORANGE CANDY LIP SCRUB REVIEW

Hello, everyone! Juicy Chemistry is one of the best organic brand in India currently. All the Juicy Chemistry’s products are made from wild-harvested ingredients, steam distilled & cold pressed oils and are free from parabens, preservatives, petroleum products, artificial perfumes, alcohol, etc. Today I have Juicy Chemistry Orange Candy Lip Scrub for review.The lip scrubs gently exfoliate dry skin on the lips, leaving it smooth and also they penetrate deep into the skin cells to rejuvenate the lips.So let’s start with an in-depth review of Juicy Chemistry orange candy lip scrub.

ORANGE CANDY LIP SCRUB DESCRIPTION:

The lip scrub comes in a cute plastic tub sealed with an aluminum foil and a twist up lid on the top.The lid is not tight enough so it is not travel-friendly.The lip scrub is yellowish in color and has a thick paste-like consistency. It looks like organic sugar crystals are floating in the essential oils.Do not mislead by the image I have clicked because when the package reached to me the oils are leaking from the tub.I immediately kept it in the refrigerator so the product looks a bit different here.The product smells exactly like the orange.The product has both the sweet and zesty taste.The divine smell of this scrub will uplift your mood. This lip scrub is a perfect blend of essential oils, vitamin E, organic brown sugar and shea butter.

PRODUCT CLAIMS:

This zesty lip butter will perk your parched lips right up.

PERFORMANCE:

This lip scrub removes the dead skin cells, gently exfoliate the skin, removes pigmentation from the lips. It will help you get rid of dry, chapped, and pigmented lips. You have to use it 2-3 times a week to get the best results.Before applying any matte or liquid lipstick, use this scrub on your lips. It will give you an instant soft and smooth canvas to apply the lip color so that the lip stain glides onto the lips placidly and not settle into the crack line of lips. You will notice a huge difference in the first use itself.In the upcoming winters, it will be my holy grail product definitely.

HOW TO USE THE LIP SCRUB:

Take a tiny amount of the scrub and gently massage into the wet lips for 1-2 minutes.While massaging the sugar will keep on melting down.Wash your lips with water and apply a lip balm if needed. I do not use lip balm after using the scrub because it moisturizes my lips pretty well. You will have the oil residues after the wash which will work like a lip balm.
