Found exclusively in Morocco’s Atlas Mountains, this clarifying volcanic clay removes impurities and blackheads — while leavings skin noticeably soft and glowing after 10 minutes.
Activated with water, Rhassoul clay opens up pores and holds onto impurities which can then be rinsed away. (The detoxifying properties work especially well for those with eczema or rosacea.)
But the mineral-rich clay does more than remove — it adds to your complexion. Micronutrients brighten the skin, and leave it smooth and silky.
Free of surfactants that attack the face’s protective layers, it complements all skin types and is the only clay delicate enough for your sensitive eye area.
WHY I LOVE IT
I like to think of Rhassoul clay as the secret weapon in my beauty arsenal. Before any special occasion, I always use it for a quick 10-minute mask — just to give my skin that extra wow factor.
HOW TO USE
Once a week, measure 1/2 tablespoon of clay and 1 tablespoon of room temperature water with a non-metal spoon. Pour into a non-metal bowl and let the mixture rest for five minutes before blending with a brush. [If the clay doesn’t dissolve quickly, let it rest a bit longer before mixing again.] Brush a thin layer onto the face. To keep the mask moist, mist the clay or use your hands to pat cool water on top. After 10 minutes, rinse off completely with cool water.
For dry skin: Add five drops of Argan Oil.
Prepared mask can be refrigerated in a non-metal container for up to one week. Store loose clay in a cool, dark place.
