Quick beauty tip: At the first sign of a breakout on your face, grab 1 tbsp of kaolin or bentonite clay, 1/2 tsp of honey and just enough warm water to turn it into a spreadable consistency. Mix it really well, apply it to your face and leave it for about 10 minutes. It will get really tight, but that’s normal. Be sure to avoid your eyebrows or you’ll basically wax them off when you remove the mask. Go all the way up close to your hairline, eyes and mouth, but not onto your lashes. Remove with warm water and a soft washcloth, then finish with a cool rinse.
I do this and the breakouts will basically disappear. I had some popping up the other day and one treatment fixed me right up. I use kaolin in mine. I highly recommend this if you’re dealing with acne or trying to prevent it.
As a side note, if you remove most of the mask by gently rubbing it and rolling it off, it’ll actually pull out all the peach fuzz on your face, which could be a bonus to you if you have some upper lip hair or dark fuzz that you don’t like.
