It’s no secret, I love clay and I use it extensively internally and externally for both health and beauty. I’ve shared with you my skin detox boosting bentonite clay mask recipe. I use it religiously when I’m on a juice fast to keep my skin gorge and blemish-free.
Though I’m a big fan of bentonite clay (this Atzec Secrets brand especially- it’s the only one that gives that amazing throbbing sensation), I also really love a therapeutic French green clay called montmorillonite. It’s orginally from Montmorillon, a small commune in the Poitou-Charentes region, in western France. It’s been mined in the region for hundreds of years and it’s a big healing and beauty fave in France (and exclusive spas worldwide).
Montmorillonite is especially fabulous at clearing up problem skin, so this purifying facial mask is a great skin detox weapon that can be used weekly or even daily on trouble spots.
