I’ve realized with this second pregnancy that my skin has given me more issues than before. Admittedly, I’ve got a lot of breakouts and I’ve noticed some blotches in my complexion. Whatever happened to the ‘pregnancy glow’ you’re supposed to get when expecting? I’m deeming it a myth since apparently it’s not working its way around here. 😉 Instead, I came up with this refreshing face mask for using a couple of times each week. I like it because it uses a zeolite powder and not normal clay so I get added detox benefits. It’s also the same zeolite powder I used in my toothpaste not long ago.
With all these great benefits I’m not surprised to have found that it’s also great for using in a face or body mask. You can go to almost any spa and get a mud mask of some sort and it’s a practice that people have been doing for centuries. In this application the zeolite is able to cleanse skin and help to remove impurities while calming redness and soothing irritated skin. Even as a fine powder, it could also be used as a gentle exfoliant by rubbing the mask in a circular motion on the face and then rinsed off instead of allowing to dry.
I don’t always use a mask so I like to make it on a single use basis rather than keep a jar of it around waiting to be used.
