There is no greater feeling than that of a glowing complexion. However, some people are not naturally blessed with perfect skin. A lot of the time, I struggle with finding the right combination of products to produce that “natural glow” that others have.
One of the things that I learned to do at an early age was the art of giving myself an at home facial treatment. I have problematic skin due to the fact that my facial hair grows in curly and if I’m in the middle of life’s natural stress, well then I break out. Not the best combination as the facial hair grows in. However, you learn to deal right.
One of my friends mentioned that her mother uses Rhassoul Clay and she loves it. I went on a search and it wasn’t until late last week that I actually ordered this famed clay found in Morocco. Rich in minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium and iron it really goes in deep to remove impurities within the skin. I’ve used it twice as a mask this week and I noticed results immediately. Skin felt firmer and looked clearer! Who wouldn’t want that?
Along with my Rhassoul, I ordered GlamGlow. GlamGlow is the new ‘facial in a jar’ used by everyone in Hollywood lately. The YouthMud TinglExfoliate Treatment is absolutely amazing. After using my clay as a cleanser and shaving, I next decided to go deep and get glammed. I applied a very thin layer of GlamGlow, immediately I felt the tingle. Thankfully, there is cucumber and lavender extracts which was great considering they are both healing and calming agents.
Designed to work in 10 minutes, I believe it did just that. I never pay attention to the directs perse and I left it on 12. I noticed a glow. I love it. I recommend it. I thought for sure that my skin would be worse just because of a bad experience with an alpha-hydroxy treatment I bought a few years ago which caused me to go haywire. Red thread back to the story at hand.
Rhassoul Clay Cleanser: 1/3 tablespoon. Mix in a bowl with a bit of water. Apply as a cleanser and rinse well.
Rhassoul Clay Mask- 1 tablespoon. Mix in a bowl to make a paste-like concoction. Apply. Let dry. Rinse well. They say to follow-up with Argan oil or moisturizer.
GlamGlow YouthMud TinglExfoliate Treatment- After cleansing skin, apply mask in a thin layer. Obviously you want to avoid your eye area. Allow to sit and dry for 10 minutes. Rinse well. GLOW!
One day if you’re lucky, I’ll teach you my trick to “Bronzed” skin. Has anyone tried the Benzonite Clay?
P.S.- I ordered both on Amazon. $9.99 for my Rhassoul Clay from Slice of Nature. GlamGlow was $37.50 on Amazon. 1.7oz too! Amazon Prime is amazing as well. Enjoy!
