If you've been following the latest beauty and skin trends then you've probably heard about bentonite clay. This particular clay has been raved about by so many beauty bloggers because of its powerful effects on the skin. Just type it in the Youtube search bar and you'll see numerous videos of this product being used on the skin and hair.

I decided it was time to do a facial when I noticed the constant breakouts I've been experiencing. I honestly should do facials more often, but you know...life. I purchased the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay aka the bentonite clay aka "world's most powerful facial" from Whole Foods and carefully read the directions. Do not use a metal bowl or utensil because it will react with the clay! You can mix the clay with water and/or raw apple cider vinegar, I mixed it with both, and stir until the mixture is smooth. Now, it's time to apply! Make sure to cover your face and neck and let it dry for about 10 minutes and then rinse it off.

Once you apply the clay on the face, you will immediately feel your skin tightening. It's a weird feeling, but it's worth it. Once, I rinsed all the clay off, my skin looked brighter and my pores looked smaller. It was the instant boost I was looking for and needed. I'm going to try to make sure to do this at least once a week (like the directions say) to see if I can document my skin's transformation.

Have you ever tried bentonite clay?
