Ritual

What you need to make Argil facial masque:

  • 1-2 teaspoons of Argil
  • non-clorinated warm water (distilled or mineral or spring)
  • mixing bowl (non-metal) - ceramic, glass or plastic will do
  • mixing tool (non-metal) - spoon, spatula or just your fingers
  • any additional ingredients you would like to add to the masque (not necessary)

*It is very important not to use metal mixing vessel and/or utensils to prevent clay ions from reacting to the metals.

Prepare the Masque:

  • use non-chlorinated, mineral or distilled water to prevent skin redness or peeling. Use non-metal mixing bowl and utensils only to prevent clay minerals' reaction with metals
  • usually for 1 part of Argil you need a little bit more than 1 part of water. Add more water if you need while mixing it. The consistency of the clay masque should be not runny so that it stays on the face.
  • experimenting is a must - add more clay or water until you are happy with the consistency.
  • instead or in addition to water, you can use Katari Geran (geranium water) or Eauros (rose water)
  • if you decide to add a drop or two of oil - Katari Hoba (Jojoba) and/or Barie (Barbarie Fig Seed Oil) are great choices. Oils should go into dry clay before water is added.

Prepare Yourself:

  • cleanse and slightly dry skin
  • using brush, sponge or your fingers apply Argil masque to entire face liberally and fully covering skin
  • avoid areas under eyes, as this area does not have oily glands and is therefore naturally predisposed to dryness
  • let masque set for a few minutes. Good rule of thumb if you cannot smile anymore and your skin feels tight, it is time to wash
  • 10-15 minutes should be sufficient for any skin type, wash off sooner if your skin is very sensitive
  • use warm water to wash off clay masque
  • redness might occur naturally (as clay will pull blood closer to the surface of the skin) and will go away within minutes; redness means Argil is doing what it is supposed to do - pulls impurities, toxins and oils out of your skin
  • follow-up with moisturizer - we suggest Hoba (Katari Jojoba Oil) or Barie (Katari Barbarie Fig Seed Oil)
  • your skin is now more smooth, healthy and energized
  • Argil brings out natural oils from skin, as it speeds up skin regeneration. For people with visibly ‘good’ skin it could mean some break-outs may be possible. We did not notice any, but faces do differ. Hormones could play a part in break-outs too - not to confuse with effects of clay

    Don't apply Argil facial masque to areas around the eyes, as clay will adsorb not only the oily emissions of skin, but also moisture so necessary for skin elasticity.

    Timing:

    • 20 minutes or less for oily skin
    • 10 minutes or less for normal and combination skin
    • 5 minutes or less for dry skin

    *If you leave clay masque on for too long, ever busy Argil will start pulling moisture out of your skin after it is done absorbing toxins and excess oils.

    Frequency:

    • Oily skin – 2-4 times a week
    • Normal or dry skin – 1-2 times a week
    • Topical/spot treatment – as needed, where needed
