Here a few more in-depth suggestions on how to apply the product.
Facial Mask-As a simple recipe, mix one tablespoon of the clay with one tablespoon of water or rose water until the mix forms as a paste. In order to create the mixture, the clay and the liquid should be compounded in a plastic container using only plastic utensils. If you want to like to use the mixture to combat acne, you may opt to replace water with raw apple cider vinegar. The paste should be applied to your face evenly. The mask should remain on the face for approximately 10 minutes. As the mask begins to dry, it will start to feel as though it is tightening and pulls dirt and impurities from the skin. To remove the mask, simple wash off with warm water and then apply a moisturizer.
Body Cleanser-The clay can be used as a body cleanser. The product should mix with ¼ cup of water, ¼ teaspoon clay and add pure castile soap if possible, in a foaming dispenser. In order to make sure the product is mixed properly, shake well.
Tip: The clay product should not be store in the shower due to the high moisture levels.
Hair Mask-To create the mixture for your hair, mix equal parts clay and warm water. If your hair tends to be a little dry; you should possibly add a few drops of oil such as either coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil and/or argan oil. The mixture should form a paste which should be evenly applied to the hair and scalp. The mixture should remain on your hair for approximately 5 minutes. If possible, do not allow the mixture to completely dry and/or harden on your hair.
Detox Bath-Some of the attributes of Moroccan Red Clay is to bind toxins and heavy metals from the body. In a plastic container, dissolve 1-part clay to 3 parts water then shake well prior to mixing it to your warm bath water. To promote more relaxation, you could add some Epsom salt and few drops of essential oils such as possibly lavender, eucalyptus and/or peppermint.
Dry Shampoo-Since red clay has characteristics that makes it highly absorbent; therefore, it is great as a dry shampoo. The clay will quickly absorb excess oils. For those that have previously used baby powder or cornstarch, you will find that red clay actually absorbs oils at a much faster rate therefore leaving the hair soft and volumized.
Bronzer-The Moroccan Red Clay has a dark reddish//brown hue. As such it can easily be used a bronzer. To apply the product as a bronzer, simply apply to your makeup brush thus dabbing off the excess. Next, lightly apply the product to any facial areas that you would typically apply your traditional bronzer.
