Skin Care Secrets Revealed: Face Masks

By Kolbjorn Borseth

Face MasksRaw Materials for Face Masks

The main ingredient in face masks is either Clay or algae products. This article on Face Masks deals with the Aromantic way of using clays.

Clay has been used both internally and externally for healing purposes with excellent results for many centuries. Clay is a solid, fat and moist earth that can be red, green, brown, grey, pink, yellow or white. Each type has its own properties which are determined by where it comes from and how deeply it is mined.  Our Clay comes from France, where it has been dried in the sun.
Clay is not only suitable for making Face Masks, you can make Clay Body Packs to stimulate blood and lymph circulation and it is mixed with water or herbal infusions and other active ingredients in Creams, Bath and Hair products, etc.

The colour in Green Clay comes from the 44.5% Silica content which is the most important mineral for the skin. Clay is rich in minerals and active enzymes. Clay treatments stimulate the circulation of blood and lymph, remove dead skin cells and absorb dirt and other surface fats. They also tone and strengthen the connective tissues. Clay stimulates blood circulation and draws toxins and superfluous fat from the skin. It contracts and tones the skin and strengthens the connective tissue. Clay is used for dirty and flaccid skin, acne, for poor blood circulation and to soothe eczema and sunburn.

Clay Face Masks for different skin types

  • For sensitive skin the best type of clay to use is White Clay.
  • For dry and sensitive skin use Pink Clay.
  • For all kinds of skin problems and most skin types and conditions, especially oily skin, I recommend using Green Clay.
  • For normal skin use Red Clay.
  • For normal and oily skin use Yellow Clay.

Some more interesting facts about Clays...

Out of all of the different clays, green clays draw best and so are very good for treating oily skin. A Green Clay Pack is very good on swollen knee problems together with Macerated Arnica Oil (10% ) or Arnica Tincture (5%), plus Comfrey Oil (10%) or Comfrey Leaf Tincture (5%). Make it into a fine paste and use it as Compress over the knee. Use the same amount of liquid as the amount of clay powder you're using. Mix the appropriate essential oils in at the end.

Red Clay is good for Body Packs for weight loss. Make a paste & apply.
White Clay is good to use if you have been in the sun for too long. The white clay is also appropriate for, apart from generally sensitive skin, enlarged capillaries and red and sore babies' bottoms.

Minerals found in all the Clays


Silica - at approximately 50%. It regenerates and softens the skin.

Magnesium - 0.2 to 5%

Calcium - 0.2 to 8%. It stimulates cell regeneration.

Calium - 1 to 5%.

Mangan - 0.15% in the Green, Red and Yellow Clays.

Sodium - 0.01 to 0.3% in all Clays except the Red Clay. It helps to maintain the skin's elasticity and stimulates cell regeneration.

Recipes for Clay Masks

Simple Clay Face Mask

For a very simple Face Mask mix equal amounts of water or Hydrolates & Clay and add a small quantity of Essential Oils (1-10 drops per 100ml - optional). NB: No heating is required and you need to use it straight away, it cannot be stored for more than a few days in a fridge.

Here is a recipe I used on the Ruby Wax show for BBC1 television in the UK and a lot of these raw materials you can find in your own fridge or cupboard.

The 'Ruby Wax' Avocado/Cucumber/Clay Face Mask

This face mask is good for mature and dehydrated or dry skin. The cucumber has a natural moisturising effect and it smells like a fresh vegetable salad.

Stage 1:

  • 1/4 cup cucumber, peel and chopped
  • 1/4 cup avocado flesh
  • 3 tablespoons finely powdered oats (for mild peeling)
  • 3 tablespoons of water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (squeezed from lemon)
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Stage 2:

  • 8-9 tablespoons Clay powder
  • Few drops of Essential Oils (optional)

Method:

  1. Stage 1: Puree the cucumber and avocado flesh in a food processor until it is smooth with the water and lemon juice. Then add all the other ingredients in Stage 1.
  2. Stage 2: Pour out the mix from the blender into a bowl and then whisk in the Clay. Apply the Face Masks to a clean face and neck and leave on for 20-30 minutes.
  3. Rinse off with warm water then apply a Toner and Moisturiser.
  4. Use the Mask 1-2 times a week.

Important note: This Face Mask must be used immediately, it cannot be kept or preserved but will keep a few days in the fridge.
