How to use powdered clay masks:
For powdered clay masks you can control how thick or thin you want the mask to be. You can use water or tea to mix into the mask. Apply a thin layer to face and leave on about 10-15 minutes. Many estheticians like to remove the facial clay mask with a hot towel compress. It moistens the mask up again and helps remove the clay a lot faster and easier. Some estheticians also like to use it like a spot treatment like on just chin or areas prone to break outs.
