Happy hump day, you guys!
Last night, while I settled in front of Netflix, I also decided to add the Aztec Indian Healing Clay mask to the mix for an extra special treat – 2019 is the year of self-care and self-love after all! I’ve seen SO many reviews of this product everywhere, from Buzzfeed to the Desi Wonder Woman, Shehzeen, and everyone just raves about the Aztec Indian Healing Clay. I’ve been using it for over a year now, and I am proud to announce that I’ve also joined the Aztec Indian Healing Clay cult.
So let’s jump into a review.
Pricing and Availability
I purchased this product off an online retailer, and there are a bunch of such retailers you can browse through on Facebook/Instagram, with more or less the same price. If you want recommendations on where to purchase it from in Pakistan, please drop me a comment on the post on Instagram (just click here), and I’ll tag the retailer there for you. In the US and the UK, this is available on Amazon at a much lower price ($10.99 in the US).
How to Use It
This massive jar essentially contains powdered clay, and over time I’ve used it in several different ways. I’ve tried water, rose water, and apple cider vinegar, and odd combinations of all three, but I’ve settled on my favourite. I take one tablespoon of the Aztec Indian Healing Clay, and add equal parts of water and apple cider vinegar to it. Mix it well, you will see it fizzing and bubbling too until you get a nice paste (not too diluted but not too thick either!).
If you just use water, it doesn’t form a very nice paste and you’re left with lots of lumps. If you just use apple cider vinegar, it might be a little too harsh for your face, so I like using a mixture.
Apply it on your face using a mask brush (you might feel a slight tingling sensation), leave it on until it’s dried and then rinse it off. Follow up with a light moisturizer.
I use it once a week.
As I mentioned, I’m a fan of the Aztec Indian Healing Clay. I’ve struggled with oily-combination skin and cystic acne, and whenever I’ve been regular with using this mask, my skin feels matte and acne-free. It essentially pulls out all the gunk from your pores and keeps your face squeaky clean. If my skin is already acting up, this mask helps in reducing inflammation and I can see a visible difference in the size of any spots I may have on my face after I’ve used the Aztec Indian Healing Clay. Absolutely love it!
Would I recommend? You bet!
