When it comes to beauty, most individuals especially ladies would consider the face as one the most crucial part of their of their body. It is basically why Aztec face mask is of such a concern in this case. This mask is made up of mixture Indian healing clay and water or raw apple cider vinegar (ACV). Water or ACV? It entirely depends on an individual’s preference; the difference is that water makes a milder smelling face mask…that is if you care much about the smell of vinegar on your face. However some users state that the acidity of the vinegar tends to do a better job at softening and gently exfoliating the skin. As you have noticed, creating Aztec makeup at home is a simple process. It is a DIY homemade beauty creation that anyone can come up with.

How to Use Aztec Face Mask

As we seen above, all you need for the Aztec makeup is the Indian clay, water or apple cider vinegar and a medium in which you will create the mixture. Non-metallic material such as glass, pottery or wooden bowl is recommended since metallic medium is known to react with the clay minerals hence destroying the effectiveness of the aztec mud mask.

When all the ingredients are in place, pour the clay into the bowl then add equal parts of water or vinegar. Stir the mixture until it is a smooth paste. You may add water or the clay as required. You now have the Aztec mud mask ready.

To apply the Aztec face mask, you can use your fingers or a brush to create a 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick layer of the clay on your face and then let it dry. Drying durations vary.The recommended time for a delicate skin is 5 minutes and 15-20 minutes for a normal skin. Some say that they live the mask for over 40 minutes though this could mean that they are applying a thicker layer of the clay mask.

After applying the mask you will experience a pulling and tightening sensation.

Finally, after it has dried wash it off with warm water and that’s all.
