What you'll need:
3. Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay
4. Raw Apple Cider Vinegar (We like Bragg Organic)
5. Your lovely face!
Mix equal parts clay and vinegar in the bowl and stir:
Soon you'll achieve that nice, gooey texture and you can smooth it over your face. The mask will begin to dry quickly so try to spread a thick layer evenly and all at once (I did it a little thin in some areas and when I tried to add more a minute later it got real chunky).
Viola! Note the awkward pursed lips-- it's not easy to smirk when your face is experiencing mild paralysis. A few minutes in, things started to get exciting. See, I didn't believe the back of the jar when it said "FEEL YOUR FACE PULSATE!" perhaps because I didn't want to-- call me crazy but I find the thought of my face pulsating rather alarming. But suddenly, it was. I felt a subtle twitch in my nose and something like hundreds of tiny rubber-bands gently snapping against my skin. It kept pulling tighter and tighter and after about 5 minutes the only function my face retained was the ability to blink. The directions recommend to leave the mask on for 5-10 minutes for delicate skin and 15-20 for normal skin. I rinsed it off after 10 to be safe, plus it was starting to feel so tight that I worried I was going to end up looking like this:
Alas, I did not. But my pores were completely cleansed and noticeably refined. My skin was a little rosy in some spots but didn't stay that way for long. Overall it was a fun experiment with a positive end result. I reckon it's not often that the Aztecs share their secrets, so I say you all get in on this one!
