This smooth and simple clay face mask comes together in no time, and leaves your pores clean and your face firmed and refreshed. And, with luxurious ingredients like silk and green tea, it’s perfect for an indulgent girls night in.
I never miss a weekly clay face mask thanks to clay’s wonderful ability to vacuum out my pores, boost circulation, and give a healing kick to any zits that have been lurking about. In this mask I’ve teamed clay up with aloe, green tea, and silk for an added dose of awesome.
Aloe juice is a long time favourite for healing, soothing, and moisturizing, so including it was really a no brainer. Green tea is loaded with antioxidants like vitamins C & E, and it’s said to be a powerful anti-aging ingredient to boot.
Silk is a wonderfully versatile natural protein that protects and hydrates the skin whilst contributing a soft, silky glow.
The final mask is smooth and green, and imparts a good dose of vitamins, antioxidants, and beneficial proteins. Treat yourself ?
Soothing Green Tea & Silk Face Mask
1 tbsp aloe juice (not the scary green goo!)
1 tsp matcha powder or green tea extract
1/4 tsp silk peptides, powder, or amino acids
4–6 tsp French green clay
5 drops jojoba oil
Measure the aloe vera juice out into a small dish. Whisk in the green tea and silk, and then slowly start whisking in the clay, one teaspoon at a time, until you have a thick, creamy paste. Whisk in the jojoba oil.
To use, pull your hair away from your face and spread a thick layer of the mixture across your skin. Rinse off after about 20 minutes—the mask will start to feel tight as it dries out. Follow up with some argan oil and enjoy your refreshed, smooth skin!
