Ever wondered how crazy it is to have a skin magnet that can just pull all the sh*t out of your face and give a clear skin you ever wanted? Well, Cosmetic Clays are know to have natural cleansing properties and some special Clays like french green clay just does more than that.

HOW TO: FRENCH GREEN CLAY face mask to TIGHTEN PORES
Prerequisite: Cleanse your face with a natural cleanser and steam your face for 2 minutes to open up the pores. This will the best method to do before applying any face mask as the penetrates the cleanses the pores more easily and exfoliates the skin too.

Take a non-metallic bowl and put one tablespoon of French green clay into it. Add a teaspoon of activated charcoal powder in it and mix these dry ingredients well, first.
Now take rose water (I use my DIY rose water) and by slowly adding the water, mix the ingredients into a paste like consistency without any lumps formed.
Apply the mask to your face evenly, you can use a clean face mask applying brush to if you need so. I don’t use it because I am too lazy to clean them afterwards. 😛
This is how the mask looks after all the ingredients are mixed.
After the mask is naturally dried, r may be after 20-30 minutes, you can wet you face or spray some rose water all over your face and gently massage your face to give a mild exfoliating effect. This removes all the dead skin cells, blackheads if any and rejuvenates the skin to look more fresh and radiant.
Do this once or Twice every month for a happy and healthy looking skin. You need not use this mask, or in fact any other clay mask more often than this or else you may end up harming your skin and making it drier more by stripping away the natural oil and moisture out of your skin.
