I'm happy to say that, for the past year or so, these mirror checks are now used for more pleasant things like assessing my eyelash growth. This morning, however, I was startled to see two tiny little pimples beginning to form on my cheek just an inch away from my nose. Building within me was an intense sense of fear and dread as I was immediately taken back to the old days of finding new blemishes each morning.
After I calmed down, I remembered my Emergency Action Plan for dealing with newly formed acne. From there, I mosied over to the kitchen to warm some water for my lemon & bamboo tea. Then I headed over to my products in search of a clay mask. I'm completely out of Glam Glow so that wasn't an option. Suddenly, I realized that I had an unopened jar of Moroccan Red Clay powder. "Why not?" I thought "Now's as good of a time as any to give it a shot."
After one use, I'm confident in saying that I like it. Shortly, after removing the mask, my skin maintained a slight glow. A day later and I wake up to calm, perfectly clear skin. The remainder of my clay mixture kept it's consistency so I covered it and placed in the fridge for another mask this weekend. I'm completely happy with my red clay but then I heard of rhassoul clay which is said to be a better version. One that many like for their hair and skin because it isn't overly stripping. I'd love to try that one day as a scalp detox.
Has anyone ever tried rhassoul? Which do you like better?
