Imagine putting on that mushy clay on your face. Although it might sounds disgusting, but clay mask is very useful especially when you have combination to oily skin. Even acne skin sufferers like me would benefit from it. I have discovered clay mask benefit about three years ago and I am still using clay mask to keep my face shine-free.

This mask has been around for thousand years ago. Now? You can see it over the shelves everywhere, whether it is in supermarkets, personal care stores or pharmacies. It comes in many different brands, expensive or inexpensive. Clay mask from any skincare brands are not the only option, but you can always search for other alternatives to make them. One of it is homemade clay mask, mainly is to combine various facial clays and essential oil. I would highly recommend on Kitty Litter Mask Tutorial by Ricebunny. It works as good as many other skincare products over the shelves, plus it saves your money.

I used to apply this mask two to three times a week; it’s really taking up my time. Now, I only need to use this mask only once a week. Want to know how I do it? Watch this.
