Pink clay mask: how is it done?
To prepare a pink clay face mask you need to mix two tablespoons of clay, a teaspoon of honey and a little plain water. The mixture must be homogeneous and not too liquid, so add the water slowly. Let it rest for a few minutes and apply to the previously cleansed face. Leave on for fifteen minutes and then remove with a damp cloth. Finally, rinse with cold water, in order to tone the skin, and apply the moisturizer you usually use for your beauty routine. Of course, this recipe can also be used for hair, leaving it on before shampooing for at least 30 minutes.
