UMC Week 15: Ancient Secrets

Ancient Secrets

As we dive in to the heart of Autumn, we celebrate Heritage Day. An African tradition in my culture that celebrates all the different cultures on the African continent and diaspora. I choose to take a book from tradition, and get some much needed benefits from Bentonite Clay.


This is the Aztec Secrets Indian Healing Clay which is one of the most popular Bentonite Clay’s on the market. This clay is titled the “Most Powerful Clay in the World” by many in the beauty community. And there is a reason for it. This mask draws toxins and metals from the skin and body to detox the deep layers of the skin. It cleans out pores, and gets rid of acne and congestion.

Mix with Apple Cider Vinegar or Witch Hazel for best results including toning, and oil balancing of the skin. Mix in a plastic or wooden bowl with a spoon alike (as metal and other minerals can nullify the clay) until you get a thick, creamy clay. Spread on your face and leave on for 30 minutes or until dry.

Tip. steam your face with a Facial Steamer first to soften skin for better results!

Your skin might be a bit red afterwards, but it will fade. The redness is caused by the detoxing power of the clay. Don’t forget to moisturize well.
