Caring for your skin starts with the ingredients you use on your skin and the mindful rituals you create every day, week and month. One of my favourite weekly self-care rituals is using the Green Clay Face Mask, blended with only certified-organic moringa, matcha green tea and french green clay - it's easy to use, full of antioxidant-rich skin foods and can be personalised depending on your skin type. Here's how to use a clay face mask.
START WITH CLEAN SKIN
If you're wearing any make-up, remove this first with the Green Clay Cleansing Balm and Organic Muslin Facial Cloth. This creates the perfectly clean canvas for the Face Mask to work most effectively.
CHOOSE WATER, HONEY OR YOGHURT
The beauty of the Face Mask is that it comes in powder form which gives you the chance to mix it with either water (if you have normal skin), honey (dry skin) or natural yoghurt (oily skin).
USE 1/2 TEASPOON OF THE MASK
Stimulate your senses and add 1/2 teaspoon of the aromatic Face Mask with water or 2 teaspoons of organic, runny honey or yoghurt until a smooth paste forms (similar to icing sugar). Apply to your face with your fingertips and leave for 5-10 minutes.
- Moringa is exceptionally high in antioxidants as well as Vitamins A, C and E to boost collagen for a smoother, healthier complexion
- Matcha Green Tea draws out excess oil (in oily skins), reduces inflammation and helps to combat blemishes (read more on Why Matcha Green Tea is in our Face Mask)
- French Green Clay contains a unique blend of minerals including dolomite, manganese, silica and copper to detoxify the skin
RINSE OFF WITH THE ORGANIC MUSLIN CLOTH
Rinse the Face Mask off with warm water, using the Organic Muslin Facial Cloth to remove any excess around the nose, brows and hairline. The Muslin Cloth has a gently buffing and exfoliating quality which promotes a clearer complexion and can be used again and again.

ENJOY A HEALTHY, MORE RADIANT GLOW
And the last question: how often should you use a clay face mask? We recommend enjoying as part of your self-care ritual once or twice a week for best results. Blended with only the finest certified-organic Matcha Green Tea, Moringa (the zero waste ingredient) and French Green Clay, the exceptionally high levels of antioxidants and anti-inflammatories restore dry and lacklustre skin to promote more radiant skin. Finish by following with a couple of drops of the Organic Facial Oil.
