Ah, there’s nothing like pampering yourself with a nice mask! Oh, you’ve never put a mask on your feet before? Well that’s weird.

Just kidding! I know I’m the weirdo for putting a mask on my feet. But trust me, soon you’ll be doing the same… and your body will be thanking you for it.

The benefits of bentonite clay

Bentonite clay is one of the most powerful healing clays available. Its strong negative charge bonds to the positive charge of toxins and heavy metals. So when it comes in contact with a toxin or heavy metal, the clay will actually absorb it and then release its minerals for the body to use. Pretty amazing, huh?

I always have bentonite clay on hand since I use it in my blackhead busting blackout mask (a real miracle worker!) and my DIY all-natural detoxifying deodorant (it’s the anti-antiperspirant). I also apply a detox clay foot mask about once a month…

Detox clay foot mask

Detoxing your body via the feet is considered to be one of the safest forms of detoxification. To make a detox clay foot mask, simply mix 3 tablespoons of bentonite clay with 3 tablespoons of filtered water. Apply the mask to the bottom of the feet and around the ankles. To assist the detox process, drink lots of filtered water and munch on some foods that naturally detox and cleanse your body while you prop your feet! Let the mask sit for thirty minutes, and then rinse off.
