How to Get Great-Looking Skin With Kitty Litter Face Masks

For All You Diy-Ers Out There!

This is going to sound pretty bizarre, but I love to incorporate kitty litter into my beauty routine at least once a week. Kitty litter, you ask? Believe it or not, the stuff is basically bentonite clay—which is great for drawing out all the impurities in the skin that is too hard to reach by manual washing. The best part? The same clay is more or less the same as the product that is used in high-end salons, at a fraction of the price. I got my 12-pound pure-bentonite clay at the local pet store for only 3 or 4 bucks—definitely a cheap investment for the results you’ll get!

The trick is to find kitty litter that is 100% bentonite clay, without any added scents, additives, or other fillers (which, of course, we don’t want to apply to our skin). Since bentonite clay carries an electrical charge when water is added, it creates an attraction that draws out the dirt and grime deeply rooted in every pore.

Now onto making your own DIY kitty litter face mask. My personal favorite method of concocting the mask mixture is to add water to a couple tablespoon of the clay—just enough to get it wet so it will adhere to your face. Next, I pop it into the microwave for about 10-15 seconds and add jojoba and vitamin E oils. The heat will really help open up your pores and the oils will prevent the mask from drying out your skin.

The important thing to remember here is that the beneficial property of the mask is within the water, which carries the charge to draw out the toxins in the pores. So be sure to get as much of the liquid portion of the mixture onto your face as possible!
