The Skin Care Benefits of a Mayan Clay Facial Mask
Clay has been used to promote skin health for thousands of years, especially among the ancient Egyptians, Aztecs, and Mayans. Clay has been shown to detoxify skin by drawing out oil, dirt and bacteria from the pores. It also improves circulation, reducing inflammation in the skin which helps to prevent acne. Mayan clay, in particular is rich with calcium, and other natural metals which are especially beneficial for acne treatments.
In the Ehow video, Marisa Martino explains that “clay masks have been around for thousands of years to help detoxify and purify the body. When applied to the skin it sends positive electrons which are then absorbed sending vital force like a magnet. It also has essential vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc.”
