Easy Face Mask 4 Wrinkles & Toning

Every month I order some new organic/natural products from Mountain Rose Herbs. This past month I ordered a variety of products to make a homemade facial scrub. I was excited to be able to experiment, and play with the items I ordered.

One of the ingredients I ordered was French Green Clay. I have never used any type of clay, and did not know what to expect. What I received was a 1 lb bag of powder, yes it is a powder, I paid $10.75, and know this is going to last a long time. I used to spend $20-$30 on brand name products which lasted about two months, this is going to last longer, and is half the price.

I used some in my facial scrub which makes it look kinda gross, but the real surprise was using the clay in a facial mask. All you have to do is put some in the palm of your hand, add water, put it on your face, let it dry, and just wash it off. However, you know me I have to change things, so I added some wheat germ oil (8 oz $16) to it. While it will not fully dry I saw results immediately after I washed it off. I also need to say I never used it with just water, and after the results I got using it with the wheat germ oil I am not sure I will.

Now I do not have any heavy duty wrinkles, but I also started prevention during my early 30s. I totally believe in prevention, why wait until you have an issue to deal with head it off at path. At 48 I have noticed the skin under my eyes losing elasticity, so my goal has been tighten it back up.  Well, I found it!!! I could see a difference in the skin right away. I skipped one day, and noticed a difference, so I will be using this every day. While I can not say it will totally reduce wrinkles I can say you should see a difference immediately. I will be using this every day, when used this way I saw changes each time.

My skin looks healthier, younger, and feels great!!!!
