Preparing a clay paste:
Pour the desired amount of clay into a container. Gradually add water and stir until paste is the desired texture. Leave to stand for about half an hour.
- As a beauty mask:
Apply clay paste thickly on the face and neck, avoiding the eye area and lips. Leave for about 10 minutes without letting the mask dry on the skin. Rinse with warm water, and dry skin with a towel. Moisturise afterwards.
- As a poultice:
Place the clay paste on a natural fabric and spread with a non-metal spatula to a thickness of 2-3cm. Place the poultice on the skin and hold loosely in place with a bandage. If the poultice is to be applied to an irritated area, insert a thin gauze between the clay and the skin. Leave for at least one hour. Remove as much clay as possible, if necessary using water, then rinse the skin with warm water and dry with a towel.
