These skin problems may or may not go away easily and most of the times, people visit dermatologists in order to take care of the issues. Sometimes only taking medicines do the trick, but sometimes people have to take longer doses of medication and sometimes surgery is also needed.
2 The mysterious ingredient
That naturally found, yet mysterious substance is known as Bentonite Clay or Earth clay. This clay is wonderful in healing skin conditions and has been used since the times of ancient Rome, Egypt and amongst the Native American communities.
The two major types of healing clays are bentonite clay and French green clay. Most people prefer Bentonite clay since it contains high amounts of calcium, which is brilliant in curing and healing skin conditions.
In the next slide, you will get to know how to use the clay for your benefit.
3 How to use it?
The best way to use the bentonite clay is to make a face mask out of it. The mask not only lets the clay perform its magic on your face, but it also provides the cooling and soothing effect to the face. Here is how to make a mask out of that clay.
Take 1 cup of bentonite clay in a glass bowl. Grind 1 tablespoon of each of these herbs: St. John’s Wort, calendula and Pau d’Arco. Now mix the solution. Now take one tablespoon of the mixture and mix in one table spoon of warm water in it.
Now make a paste of the solution and apply it on the affected areas on the skin. Let the mask dry out by keeping it on for 20 minutes or so. Now rinse first with warm water to remove the clay and then repeat it using cold water. You need to do this twice a week.
You can also take the clay internally by mixing 1-1 ½ teaspoons of clay powder and drinking it along with 8 ounces of water. Taking the clay internally keeps the digestion process ticking at the optimum level. It soothes conditions like irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, diarrhea and acid reflux.
It also helps the body deal with skin and allergy issues. Since the clay is full of natural minerals, it also provides the body with minerals which otherwise are not easy to procure. Majorly, it also detoxifies the body, getting rid of all the toxins in the digestive tract.
You just need to be careful while taking in the clay, since it can interact with heart medication and antibiotics. You should also check for allergies when you buy the clay, since clay has many minerals and if you are allergic to any mineral, then you should refrain from buying the clay which has those minerals. You should buy the one which is perfect for you and your skin type.
