Review: Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay for Deep Pore Cleansing
I've heard a lot about the benefits of raw apple cider vinegar for rosacea. While it's pretty harsh by itself, I've talked to a lot of rosacea sufferers who dilute the vinegar with water. I didn't find it helped a lot. It needed something more. Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay turned out to be a great partner to vinegar for treating rosacea.
I was in a store and saw a product and wondered if it would work. I bought a tub of Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay and gave it a try. I love it. It's definitely helped with my more oily t-zone. It also has lessened the number of rosacea pustules and bumps that I get from time to time.
What's In It?
Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay is natural calcium bentonite clay powder. There are no other ingredients. It's clay powder and only clay powder. You mix it with water or apple cider vinegar, spread it onto your face, and let it dry. The clay powder draws oil and dirt from the pores and leaves your skin very clean and very soft.
I definitely recommend using the vinegar. It mixes well, spreads easily, and does an outstanding job removing dead skin cells. You're left with a radiate, fresh complexion that others notice. Skip generic brands and use Bragg Organic Raw Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar. It's affordable and works the best. It also comes in gallon jugs if, like me, you use it for cooking as well.
Tips for Using Vinegar and Aztec Clay for Rosacea
Mix some of the powder with some vinegar. You'll need no more than a couple tablespoons of this clay mixture for your face. I find it easiest to do a 1 tbsp clay powder to 1 tbsp vinegar mixture to start and then adjust as needed. Once you have a smooth paste, you spread it on your face.
As the clay powder dries, it does harden and crack. It feels weird. It may itch. I know it does make my skin itch as it dries. It's never irritated my skin, however. Just the mild itching. I use the itching as an indicator of when it's dry enough to remove.
I've used the Aztec clay mask both with water and with raw apple cider vinegar and prefer the vinegar method. I can feel it tingle, reminding me a bit of being in a spa, but it also seems to work best. There's something about the vinegar and the clay working together to revitalize tired, red rosacea skin.
When you rinse it off, make sure you have a strainer or cheesecloth over the drain. The clay can clog pipes if you're not careful. I have a mesh drain strainer that I put in place. It cost a couple dollars and works incredibly well at catching the clay pieces. It also lasts years.
My Final Thoughts
I've heard from many friends and acquaintances with rosacea that Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay is the best product they've found for doing a deep clean. I fully agree. It's not drying. It doesn't irritate my skin. Best of all, my skin just looks better after the weekly treatment.
My one-pound container of Indian Healing Clay has lasted a full year. Paired with raw apple vinegar for treating rosacea, it's my favorite product. For the price, I find it's also a bargain! Buy it today and share your thoughts on Facebook.
