Exfoliating scrubs and skin treatments are the kind of thing you can do once or twice a week. They’re a real treat for the body. It always feels good to use uplifting essences such as peppermint. Honey also has is excellent for exfoliating the face. Also, try using things like natural alpha hydroxy acids, which can be found in fruit, like papaya or strawberries. These are the types of ingredients that will be brilliant for making your own products at home.

Natural Beauty Recipe: Green Clay Purifying Face Masque for Softer, Younger-Looking Skin
by Tracy Neely
French green clay, known as illite, is a 100% natural bio-organic material. Over thousands of years in the earth it absorbs a wealth of essential healing minerals from the plant kingdom including Silica, Magnesium, Calcium, Iron, Potassium, Cobalt, Manganese, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Aluminium, Phosphorous, & Sodium. After removal from the ground the illite is naturally sun-dried, capturing the solar energy which activates the vital minerals and trace elements within.
French green clay takes its name from the fact that rock quarries located in southern France enjoyed a virtual monopoly on its production until similar deposits of illite clays were identified in China, Montana, and Wyoming. The clay’s green color comes from a combination of iron oxides and decomposed plant matter, mostly kelp seaweed and other algae.
It is regarded as a beneficial treatment for stimulating the skin and removing impurities from the epidermis (outermost layer of skin cells). The clay works by adsorbing impurities from the skin cells, by causing dead cells to slough off, and by stimulating the flow of blood to the epidermis. As the clay dries on the skin, it causes the pores to tighten and the skin to feel firm.
