5 Reasons Why You Should Put Bentonite Clay on Your Face

Posted on April 28 2017

Have you heard of bentonite clay? If you haven’t, read on, because it is becoming all the rage in the skin care world! Bentonite clay is a natural forming clay made up of negative ions. Why is that important? Because toxins and heavy metals in the body are made of positive ions, which means bentonite clay works as a magnet to remove those toxins from the body. Bentonite clay is safe and effective for all skin types. It helps even out skin tone, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and more! smooth fine lines

Need more convincing? Here are five reasons you should be using bentonite clay:

1.  Unclogs and shrinks pores 

All pores become clogged over time. Smaller pores help keep your face clean and keep blemishes at bay, as they are less likely to clog. Apply as a mask on your face and repeat twice a week to see results.

2.  Draws out toxins from the skin 

As mentioned above, bentonite clay acts like a magnet to the toxins in your skin. When the clay comes into contact with your skin, it will pull out the impurities, leaving its own healing minerals behind for the body to use. The clay even pulls hydrogen from the cells, helping with circulations and overall skin tone/health.

3.  Controls oil production

Oily skin is the curse of many. When there is too much oil on the skin, bacteria can form, which leads to acne, blackheads, and whiteheads popping up all too frequently. Bentonite can not only help control oil production, but it can also be treated as a spot repair product for blemishes. 4.

4. Exfoliates 

Exfoliation removes dead skin cells, unclogs dirt and oil in your pores, and can help prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Sound important? It sure is! Using bentonite clay is an all-natural way to exfoliate.

5.  Treats eczema and psoriasis 

These skin conditions are believed to be caused by fungal infections. Bentonite clay helps heal these by attracting and absorbing the fungus from the skin. If you’re unsure how to apply bentonite clay, here are just some of the many ways to apply it can be applied:

Make a mask by using enough water and clay to make a thick but spreadable paste. Add a little lime juice and apply it to your face. Leave it on for about 30 minutes. When the mask dries (during which you will feel your skin tighten), rinse with warm water and pat dry with a clean towel.

Blemish Repair

If you’re looking to treat blemishes directly, use a dab of the clay mixed with water and put it directly on blemishes. Leave on overnight, rinse in the morning, and repeat until blemishes are gone.


Mix the clay with a little apple cider vinegar to make a thick paste. Rub that paste in a circular motion over your face and neck, and then rinse with warm water. You’ll notice your skin feeling soft, clean, and looking smoother. We’re ready to jump on the bentonite bandwagon! Are you? geneva naturals anti-aging purifying clay mask
