While there are hundreds, if not thousands, of ready-made clay masks on the market, I'm not interested in any of them, regardless of their claims. What I know for sure, and what has been proven here at The Gorgeous Girl's Guide, is that we can all get a lot more out of dry clay. With a dry clay powder, you can add whatever you need, want, or like. Unlike pre-mixed clay masks, you will know exactly what has gone into your mask, and you can make as little or as much as you want. One teaspoon goes a long way and the rest of your clay isn't at risk of getting old or dried up like pre-mixed versions! This month, try Moroccan Red Clay...
