Trying out the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay!
I finally tried this mask for the first time as SO many people have raves about it online!! Ive heard everybody saying nothing but good things about it- so I had to give it a go! 🙊 I have acne prone skin and have had acne scars ever since I was 15, with my pores getting bigger as I get older so this mask sounded like a miracle! 😝 My best friend brought it online and got 2 so gave one to me for around $35NZD, so seemed like an awesome deal considering this bad boy was sold out everywhere at one point it was that popular! The size of the tub is huge too so will definitely last me for ages! 😍 It was amazing to smooth onto my face, and I loved the green colour. You just mix with a bit of water or apple cider vinegar and stir (avoiding metal as this can alter the performance or the clay). I left my mask on for 20minutes as I don’t have sensitive skin- if you do have sensitive skin you leave it on for around 10minutes. It changes colour to a slightly lighter green as it dries and starts cracking after a few minutes- I love the look of the cracked clay 🙊 I loved the tightening feeling of this after around 8minutes- I could barely move my face but I loved that sensation! 🙊 It made it feel like it was really sucking out my pores and getting rid of any nasties. After I washed it off with warm water and a flannel I had only a little redness, but holy moly my skin felt SO soft and smooth and my pores appeared smaller already!! Also my skin felt tighter (it was!) after the mask and my fine lines wern’t as noticeable because of that 😍 I can’t wait to try out this mask more to see if it clears any of my active breakouts and blackheads. Definitely recommend so far, but I will keep you posted again on how it goes for me 😊❤️ AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay

😊Why I multi-mask 😊
First let me say, not all areas of your face need the same type of care, and attention. For me, my chin has broke out bad this week thanks to Aunt Flo. Anyway I needed a detox for my chin, while the rest of my face didn’t really need much, but I have dark spots I’m targeting with The Ordinary chemical peel. If I felt like my T-zone was oily or a little dry, I would have used 3 masks. The key is to listen to your skin! Normally I’d just use one mask, but my chin really needed something targeted for detox. Since I don’t have sensitive skin I left them on for 10 minutes before washing off. If you have sensitive skin use for 5 minutes, and always so a small patch test to make sure you won’t react. Also they make an acid neutralizer, that would be handy to have as a just Incase. Second, I use a calming face serum after. It really helps with any redness that might occurs from the masks (mind you redness is normal, just make sure that you use sunscreen because your skin will be more sensitive to sun) then i follow up with a vitamin C serum then I finish off with sunscreen. When I do a mask like this I really try to keep the after care simple, yet replenishing, and protecting. These are the products I used and why I choose them. First I wash, I double cleansed this time. I used youthificarion face wash, then the CeraVe - Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser I chose the youthification, simply because of the ingredients, all organic and it really helps my skin. Then I chose the cerave because it’s such a gentle cleanser for me and with the ingredients targeted for acne I’ll take all the help I can get. I used AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay on my chin and the The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution and I explained why above 😊 I finished with the youthification night serum for the calming properties of the ingredients. And the OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum and I use vitamin c because it helps even skin tone and brightens skin. Then I finished with the sun bum - Face Lotion SPF 50 I chose this sunscreen because it’s chemical, Not mineral. In short mineral sunscreen leaves the white cast on your face while the chemical sunscreen absorbs into your skin. And it pairs best with my products, I don’t get the pilling like I did with mineral sunscreen. (Pilling is when your products sort of roll into balls and off your skin.)

My Skin Has Never Looked Better 🙌
So I haven’t done the let the app scan my face for flaws in a while so I figured why not do it right now? I was very surprised with my results. I knew that my skin was looking pretty good but over never had every category be green before! Here are the products I use: ￼ ￼CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin I use it daily every morning and I pat my face dry with a towel. ￼CeraVe - Ultra-Light Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 For Normal To Oily Skin I use this product after my face has dried from being washed. I also will put it on at night if I feel like my face is dry or has some dry spots. ￼AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay I love using this. It makes my faces fee right and soft. My sister and I use it once a week on Saturday night for a little “spa time” in our room. I just use water but I do wanna try it with the apple cider vinegar some day
This 100% natural calcium bentonite clay mask basically vacuums out your pores, and Ive been using it religiously for 4 years now. Oh, and it’s only 10$ for a 1-pound jar that will last you for an entire year! You’re probably wondering what makes this face mask so much better than the other ones out there. For starters, it makes your face pulsate! You will feel a tightening and pulling sensation and once you remove the mask, you’ll notice a dramatic difference. Whether you have acne, blackheads, or just want some deep cleansing you probably owe it to yourself to give this tub of dreams a try. I have combination skin and this works really well on my skin! Directions: Mix clay with equal parts of raw apple cider vinegar (preferably) or water on a non-metal bowl and utensil. Stir the mixture and apply evenly to the face or other area. Remove clay after 10-15 mins with warm water. Slight redness of the skin is normal and will disappear in about 30 mins.
let’s talk about hormonal acne 👎🏻 it’s been a struggle my whole life and it’s also the biggest question i’ve been asked since starting this page. everyone’s skin is different, but i’ve been using this mask since i was SIXTEEN and it has helped with breakouts ever since then. and guess what? it’s 10 bucks on amazon.
AZTEC SECRET-Indian Healing Clay
If you have oily, acne prone skin with large pores, I definitely recommend the Aztec Secret Indian Clay mask! I noticed a difference in the size of my pores after ONE USE. It doesn’t irritate skin, and it really helps to take all the toxins out. Not to mention the price is AMAZING. My brother first bought a jar of the clay powder and I ended up stealing it and using it for myself 😅. AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay

Best face mask for acne and black heads
I want to go in a little into why I love this mask over all other clay masks and how much I disliked it when I first started using it because I didn’t understand anything about it until I did some research. When I first started using this mask, I followed the directions and mixed it with water, apple cider vinegar and the clay. Equal parts each. Suffice to say, it was too watery. My skin “purged” the first few times I used it. I thought it was causing acne, so I stopped using it for a month. Since the other clay masks I tried over that duration weren’t doing anything for my acne or blackheads, I decided to give the Aztec mask another shot but wanted to see how other people used it first, to see if I was doing anything wrong. Turns out, your supposed to use apple cider vinegar or water, not both. Apple cider vinegar turned out to be much more beneficial, as it helps the mask mix into a nice cream. Vinegar is also really good for your skin and any acne or blackheads because it balances your skins pH level! I also learned that my skin was purging the junk from its pores and not getting acne from the mask. After 2 uses, my skin stopped purging so heavily. Now I just use it for blackheads. 😁 I also stopped waiting for the mask to dry before rinsing it off because if you let it dry, then it will strip your skin of its moisture and that will lead to inflammation and then more acne! Instead, I wait for the mask to get damp and sticky to the touch before rinsing it off, which is usually between 10 and 15 minutes. I have learned that the drying times depends on my skins hydration levels before using the mask. If my face is drier than usual, like during winter, then it will become damp quicker. Usually around 10 minutes. If my skin is oilier and more hydrated, like during summer, then it will take 15 minutes. For the mixture: I use equal parts of the mothers apple cider vinegar (but you can use any apple cider vinegar) and the clay. I mix it until it’s a cream texture and Ill add more clay powder or vinegar if I need to. I apply a thick layer and leave it on until sticky to the touch. Then I rinse it off with luke warm water. A good dupe for this mask, if you do not want to mix it up yourself is the Acure Lemonade mask, that I bought from Target. It contains the bentonite clay, charcoal and other good ingredients for acne. It isn’t as good as the Aztec but it’s the best one that I have tried out of all other clay masks.

Pore Minimizing Mask
AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay This clay mask is targeted at people that want to deep cleanse and remove dirt from their skin. This is a great mask for people that want to draw out impurities from their skin and clear out pores. Don’t we all? But I’m specially looking at you you acne-prone skin people! Just like me! This is a huge jar of powder that when you mix it with water or vinegar it turns into clay and a mask. This contains bentonite clay which is such a great ingredient for drawing out all the nasties from our skin. I really enjoyed using this and now I’m steering away to other masks but it clears up everything and leaves my skin smooth. I used to use this once a week. This is so cheap too! I totally recommend this mask for everyone! It’s so cheap (I think in the US it’s 7 bucks) so in the worst case you give away the big jar or you lose 7 dollars. Doesn’t sound bad to me if this can eventually clear up your skin a bit! I mix mine with water and actually have never tried it with apple cider vinegar like most. I’m too lazy ahaha but I’ve heard it works too! For me it works great with only water. Considering the price, the amount you get and what it does + ingredients this gets a 4.5/5 (5/5)

Sand & Sky mask- Review
After succumbing to the pressure of my social media feed, I ordered this mask a couple months ago and I hoped it would be the miracle cure for my stubborn acne. It’s a good product, but I will be trying some other mask rather than reordering. Pros: It definitely helps to clear pores, and while it does help with blemishes, it didn’t make them vanish like I had hoped. It can also be used as a spot treatment for blemishes. It definitely helped them to clear up faster, but again, no miracles. It goes on nicely and it didn’t dry out my skin. It does say it’s free of nasty ingredients, but it’s not on the Think Dirty app. Cons: This is a very expensive mask ($66 CAD plus shipping). If it had been as good as I hoped, it would be worth it, but it’s hard to justify spending so much. Is it a great product- yes! But does it live up to the hype- no. I don’t plan to repurchase, at least for now.
