 Oily Skin 

Oily skin produces a lot of sebum in order to protect the skin from impurities. Oily skin delays the appearance of wrinkles considerably, when compared with other skin types.

Ingredients: clay powder and an astringent juice (orange juice, carrot juice, or lemon juice)

How to prepare: Mix the clay power with the astringent juice until you have a homogenous paste. Apply to your face and let it dry completely. Once dry remove it with warm water and afterwards if desired use a moisturizing cream.

 Dry Skin 

Dry skin is very sensitive and soft, but it is important to be kept hydrated as it does not make enough sebum and due to this loses its elasticity very fast. Dry skin is the most predisposed to wrinkles.

Ingredients: clay powder, olive oil, and sour cream 

How to prepare: Mix the clay powder with one of the ingredients listed above until you have a paste. Apply to your face and let it dry completely. Remove with warm water and if desired use a moisturizing cream afterwards. 

 Sensitive Skin 

Sensitive skin is the most pretentious as it easily gets irritated. Dust, sun’s rays, wind, and other factors could cause the skin’s irritation.

Ingredients: clay powder, jojoba oil, rose oil

How to prepare: Mix the clay powder with one spoon of jojoba oil and few drops of rose oil. Apply to your face and let it dry. Remove with warm water and afterwards it is important to use a soft smoothing cream.

Normal Skin 

Although very rare to encounter, sensitive skin is soft, just like that of babies, everyone longs to have! It is very easy to take care of sensitive skin, however it is still important to be taken care of.

Combination Skin 

This is when you have normal skin but your T-zone is oily (forehead, nose, and chin). It is difficult sometimes to differentiate between mixed or normal skin, but it is essential in order to care for it accordingly.

Acne Skin 

Acne Skin can be problematic as it is a mix of oily skin with sensitive skin. Due to the excess sebum, the skin gets infected when it comes into contact with dust particles from the air.

Ingredients: clay powder, distilled water 

How to prepare: Mix the clay powder with the water until you have a homogenous paste. Make sure to mix using only wooden or glass utensils. Apply the homogenous paste to your face, neck and shoulders. Leave it on for 30 minutes. Remove it with hot water.
