Indian Healing Clay or Bentonite clay can target and treat different beauty woes from various angles. “It has many properties, such as high absorption and swelling capacity,” says Debra Jaliman, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City. Due to the way the ingredient soaks up impurities and dissolves the buildup of oil, dirt, and dead skin cells, it’s able to address everything from acne and hair health to body odor and even oral hygiene.
Indian Healing Clay Uses
Face Mask: Masking with bentonite clay is the most popular use of this product. “Using a facial mask containing bentonite clay [can] help to remove toxins from your pores,” notes Jaliman.
Bath Soak: No need for a fancy detox bath product — a little Aztec Secret will go a long way. “Soaking in a bath containing bentonite clay helps to reduce inflammation and heal the skin,” explains Jaliman. And, because it removes toxins from the skin, it can be a great overall reset for the body (especially during cold and flu season).
Hair Mask: You can also use the not-so-secret healing clay on your strands. Using a hair mask with bentonite clay helps to add moisture to the hair and removes toxins from the scalp.
