- 1 tsp French Green Clay
- ¼ tsp spirulina powder

How to Mix Spirulina Clay Mask
This recipe yields 1 face mask recipe.
If you make too much, cover in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Step 1: Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl. 1 tsp french green clay, and ¼ tsp spirulina
Step 2: Add 1 tsp of water or 1 tsp of aloe vera gel. I used aloe vera gel.
You can also choose to use half and half of each. I find aloe vera gel to be super hydrating and love it as a substitute in my masks.
For application follow these instructions:
1. Cleanse your skin prior to applying a mask.
2. Using a face mask brush, apply the mask evenly to your face and neck. Or use your fingers to apply the mask to a damp face and apply using a circular motion as this mask has great exfoliating abilities.
3. **Most important** Remove the clay mask BEFORE it dries. To remove, gently splash water to rehydrate the clay. Then remove with water or face towel.
4. Follow up with a toner or diluted apple cider vinegar for acne prone skin.
5. Apply a moisturizer.
