Thoughts: Natural Calcium Bentonite Clay. I call it Healing Clay - a natural alternative for cleansing the skin and body :)
The Earth diet incorporates all things that the earth naturally provides. It applies for the food you eat as well as what goes on your body. And if you can't eat it don't put it on your skin. Your body absorbs everything, so if you apply moisturizers, shampoos, face washes etc that have chemicals and preservatives you are ingesting those as well.
I use clay for weekly face masks and cleansing my pores.
You can also use it for acne, cellulite, detoxification, drawing out toxins from the body, facials, body wraps, foot soaks, clay baths, chilled clay for burns, itches, insect bites, spider veins, varicose veins, Psoriasis and Eczema, allergies, hay fever, knee and muscle packs!
It removes deep stubborn impurities and dirt from pores.
1lb of clay makes 10-20 facials. You can use it once per week - for the entire family, including men! It is available on The Earth diet website :)
Ingredients: Just clay! 100% Natural Calcium Bentonite Clay.
Sundried, no added chemicals, no heavy metals, no toxic ingredients, no preservatives, no artificial anythings, no fragances, no animal testing, 100% vegan. Pure clay :)
You can actually feel your face pulsate and once I take the mask off I can see the affects, tighter smoother skin :)
How the clay works
Calcium Bentonite Clay has a uniquely strong negative ionic charge. When hydrated, it attracts anything with a positive ionic charge, such as toxins, metals and parasites. This clay has the ability to both adsorb (stick to the surface) and absorb (draw inside) these undesirables. The toxins are then permanently bound to the clay and are removed when the clay is removed.
How clay reduces Cellulite
Cellulite is lumpy deposits of body fat which is actually an accumulated stagnant amount of toxins clumping together in your body. Apply clay to the cellulite areas and the clay draws out toxins which reduces cellulite. This with detoxification, exercise and a healthy lifestyle will disappear your cellulite for good!
There are many ways to use the clay. You can put two cups of clay in your bath and soak for 20 min. This helps pull toxins out of your skin.
There is also the internal detox. Placing a small amount of clay into your drink or you can apply the clay as a mask onto your problem areas.
How clay gets rid of acne:
It removes excess sebum and is an excellent exfoliant. Calcium Bentonite Clay has natural antibacterial properties as well, and will dramatically speed the healing of the pimples. Many times, when people begin using clay masks to combat acne, they notice that their acne appears to worsen before it improves. Don't panic if this happens to you! This is a good thing! It means that the clay is doing its job, and is pulling the toxins from your skin. Also, your face may show some redness when you remove the clay. This is very normal. The Calcium Bentonite Clay increases the blood circulation to the skin, which aids in the healing process.
How clay removes spider veins and varicose veins naturally
Varicose veins, which affects 10%-20% of all adults, are abnormally swollen, twisted, blue veins that protrude from the surface of the skin in a rope like manner, usually on the legs. They are the result of a faulty valve or weak vein walls.
When dealing with varicose and spider veins, many naturopaths recommend first and foremost an internal detoxification to clean the blood, increase the strength and flexibility of the vein walls, and improve circulation. When it comes to detoxing, nothing works better than Calcium Bentonite Clay. First a thorough detoxification. That is followed with local applications of clay, which is allowed to dry for approximate 1 to 1 1/2 hours, then washed off and reapplied. He also recommends sleeping with light clay applications, and frequent clay baths to help increase circulation.
How clay gets rid of Psoriasis and Eczema
Calcium Bentonite Clay acts as a magnet and a sponge. Its highly charged negative ions attract all positive charged ions (bacteria, viruses, toxins, etc.) from your body. These substances stick to and are absorbed by the calcium bentonite clay, and are eliminated from your body with the clay. The effective action begins through the electromagnetic process of adsorbing the inflammation in the lesions, along with the deformed cells and dead scales. Pain and itching stop almost instantly following the application of the clay. The clay then assists the body in building new tissue. Smother the affected area with a thick layer of hydrated clay, and then prevent the clay from drying for several hours by wrapping the area with plastic food wrap. Glad Press and Seal works great for this purpose. After several hours, repeat the process with fresh clay and plastic wrap. During the day if the clay wrap is inconvenient just apply the hydrated clay topically in a thin application and let it dry. Re-apply whenever you experience itching.
How clay stops allergies and hay fever
Allergies and hay fever are caused by the release of histamines. The liver becomes plugged up with toxins and fatty tissue and therefore cannot produce the necessary antihistamines to neutralize the allergic reactions. The first thing to do is clean and rebuild the liver. Once that is done, the allergies and hay fever may disappear.
The good news about clay is that not only will it help stimulate the eliminatory channels, but it can effectively treat allergies and hay fever. Adsorption is a relatively quick process--almost instantaneous in certain cases. The absorptive surfaces of the clay prevent the allergic reaction by quickly neutralizing allergens before these foreign invaders can attach themselves to the blood cells.
