Dry clay face scrub

August 1, 2010

I love scrubs! Each wash leaves you with glowing skin, and they are really easy to make – basically anything with grains give a scrubbing effect.

This recipe is a mixed face scrub/mini mask. Either, you can apply to your face, rinse it off and you’re done. But if you have more time, just leave it on for a couple of minutes (up to 15) to let the clay dry, and nourish your skin even more. I usually leave it on while brushing my teeth and then rinse it off 🙂
It’s also really handy since it’s in powder format, so you never have to worry about it going off (If you make sure no water comes into the jar, it will last you forever, literally.)

  • 2 tablespoons rhassoul clay
  • 1 tablespoon white clay
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour (if you don’t have white clay at hand, just use 2 tbs cornflour)
  • 1 tablespoon dried flowers or herbs (I used a mixture of rose, chamomile and Achillea millefolium)
  • (essential oil)

If in chunks, add the rhassoul clay to a blender or coffee grinder, grind until it is a coarse powder and then add the flowers. Grind until you have a fine powder (if you feel the cornflour and white clay needs grinding, feel free). If you like, add a few drops of essential oil of your preference. Mix, and pour into a glass jar with a tight lid.

To use, add a bit of powder to the palm of your hand and add a little bit of water, mix into a thick paste and apply to face and neck.
It can be used every morning and night, but I tend to use it about two-three times a week.
For a more nourishing cleanse, you can use other liquids instead of water: vegetable oil, rose water, aloe vera, milk, yogurth, cream, herb infusion, honey… Or just your regular soap or face cleanser (I sometimes use the Nuxe face wash that I wrote about yesterday).
