BASIC BENTONITE CLAY MASK

The easiest way to make your own bentonite clay mask is to mix equal parts bentonite clay powder with a liquid, whether that be plain water or something else. We recommend using apple cider vinegar in place of water for your basic bentonite clay mask. Apple cider vinegar is astringent and can help to balance your face’s natural pH levels.

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
