Mother nature's natural cure
Cures acne naturally by absorbing oils and toxins from deep within the pores
All I ask is that you try it for two weeks
(Although you will see and fell result a lot quicker)
Bentonite is one of the most effective and powerful healing clays used to treat the body both internally and externally and has been used by indigenous cultures since before recorded history because of its healing benefits.
Basic face mask recipe: 2 tsps of clay + water to form a spreadable paste. Apply and leave to dry. Wash off, apply moisturizer. Clay masks can have other ingredients added, depending on the skin type and purpose of the mask. Calcium Bentonite masks have a natural bleaching effect, and are used when aiming to reduce blotches, pigmentation, etc. They are also excellent at restoring the natural pH of the skin and cleansing it. Acne/spots is another skin condition which benefits from clay applications. Since bentonite clays are great detoxifies, they leave the skin cleansed, pink, fresh and revitalized, generally looking younger
So now that we understand what causes it, how do we get rid of it?
We highly recommend a Hydrated Clay mask daily for two weeks, then scale back to twice a week. The best clay for this is a pure Calcium Bentonite Clay. Its amazing drawing power will help to open and clean out the pores. It removes excess sebum and is an excellent exfoliant. Calcium Bentonite Clay has natural antibacterial properties as well, and will dramatically speed the healing of the pimples. Many times, when people begin using clay masks to combat acne, they notice that their acne appears to worsen before it improves. Don't panic if this happens to you! This is a good thing! It means that the clay is doing its job, and is pulling the toxins from your skin. Also, your face may show some redness when you remove the clay. This is very normal. The Calcium Bentonite Clay increases the blood circulation to the skin, which aids in the healing process.
According to Randall Neustaedter, OMD, the androgenic hormones, particularly testosterone, that increase at puberty, and the surge of premenstrual hormones, trigger increased production of sebum. The pores become clogged with both sebum and dead skin cells creating a prime breeding ground for bacteria. These bacteria and the breakdown products of sebum cause irritation and inflammation in the pores. The result is acne – blackheads, whiteheads, pustules, and cysts in the skin.
Karen Jessett, author of Clear Skin, says that food is also a factor. She states there is recent research pointing the finger at diet — eating refined carbohydrates and sugar leads to a surge in insulin and an insulin-like growth factor called IGF-1. This in turn leads to an excess of male hormones, which encourage the skin to excrete large amounts of sebum. This grease-like substance encourages the growth of bacteria responsible for acne.
Then there's the issue of hygiene. Generally speaking, acne is not caused by poor hygiene. Exceptions to this statement would be people such as auto mechanics who are often in contact this skin damaging toxins. But for most people, the problem is not poor hygiene. In fact, vigorous scrubbing of the face does more harm than good. It can actually stimulate the sebaceous glands to overproduce, thus exacerbating the problem! Refine search
