The Dr Hauschka Clarifying Clay Mask is a MUST if you are looking to improve your skin tone, reduce the size of your pores and reduce any redness on the skin. As I have a tendency toward dry patch skin I am an advocate of face masks and I have seen marked improvements in the condition of my skin after I use them so I was excited to try this clay mask from Dr. Hauschka.
You can use the Dr Hauschka clarifying steam bath to prepare the skin before applying this mask however I just applied it after a hot shower so my pores were open.
You start with the loose clay and add 2 teaspoons of water to make a paste. Using a brush (or you can use your fingers) I applied the paste all over my face, neck and décolleté avoiding the eye area. Once the redish brown paste dries to a light brown colour on your face (approx. 5-6mins) it's time to remove the mask. I found it didn't make my skin feel tight or uncomfortable like some masks can.
Using a basin full of warm water and a clean face cloth I slowly washed off the mask. Almost immediately I noticed how soft and smooth my skin felt. The clay washed off very easily and I only really needed the face cloth to pat the skin dry afterwards.
Once the mask was fully removed and the skin was dry I used the Dr Hauschka facial toner mist over my skin before bed. I didn't use any night cream or moisturiser after the mask just the toner as recommended by Dr. Hauschka and on waking the next day I found my skin soft, smoothing and noticeably healthier with a glow.
