For oily, dry and combination skin:
For oily or combination skin, a green clay masque is perfect to balance natural sebum production and natural hydration level of skin. Dive deep into Green Clay Masque info in another page and learn how chemistry in this clay makes your skin (oily, dry or combination) perfect and healthy.
Use 2-3 times a week. Mix 1 teaspoon of Argil green clay with 1-2 spoons of warm water and apply to skin. Do not let dry completely. When skin feels tight, splash some warm water on the face to rehydrate the skin and make it easier to wash; and rinse the masque off. Follow with Hoba as moisturizer.
For acne-prone and oily skin with breakouts – you can use Argil facial masque as a spot treatment as often as you need.
Natural vegan recipe to get rid of acne naturally with Argil green clay:
When it comes to natural ways to clear skin and get rid of breakouts, adult or teenage acne, this green clay will surprise you. If you are tired of expensive and complex, there are easy ways to get rid of breakouts and easy DIY acne treatments with Argil. This is why Argil is a superior choice for homemade acne treatment:
- Acne proliferates in environment that is not pH neutral. Cleansing skin with a pH-neutral, (7.24) Argil tonic or masque will stop bacteria growth
- Trying to dry out acne with alcohol-based recipes or recipes that strip natural oils will lead to more oil production; and therefore, to more breakouts. Argil does not strip natural oils, yet it draws out excess oils, which is exactly what you need with acne-prone, oily skin.
- To get rid of acne naturally without harsh chemicals that might affect your hormones or other systems, choose a product that is harmless and not systemic. Argil does not absorb into blood stream (which makes it not systemic). It only adsorbs (pulls) toxins, excess oils and impurities to the surface.
Argil green clay works well on all skin types. Read more on our Argil page. Nothing needs to be added except for warm water and the easiest is to use it for 5-7 minutes under steam while in the shower, rinsing it off last and following up with a moisturizer (Hoba is perfect for it).
Argil can be used as often as needed. If redness occurs, it is a normal (though rare) reaction and means that Argil is doing its job by improving blood circulation and pulling blood to the surface. It is NOT an allergic reaction.
