hello again ladies..so this post is all about my skin care routine using aztec secret indian healing clay..and apple cider vinegar..yes you read it right..VINEGAR and CLAY!!.yey!!i do this once a week or twice a week depending on my skin's condition..what i like about this is that its all organic!..so less irritation..anyway here is a little info on the following prod..


taken from the aztec-secret.com site*


The unique structure of the molecules in Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay carry a negative electron charge. This comes from the valance electron count from the specific minerals found in Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay.
When a spectographic analysis is done on Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay, almost every mineral found on Earth is present. Aztec Secret is volcanic Ash from when the Earth was formed It is the foam residue left as the planet cooled The foam residue formed a pure clay vein layered between white sand, near one of the lowest parts of planet Earth.
When a facial or clay poultice is applied to the skin it forms a negative charge. Poisons and toxins stored in the epidermis have a positive charge - Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay lifts the pimple and blackheads into the clay bed to cause accelerated healing and nourishment to the skin with over 50 minerals.100% NATURAL
so to make the long story short..the toxins in our body or in my case its the face like dirts,excess sebum,impurities etc will be absorb into the clay,since toxins such as the things that i have mentioned have positive charge and the clay have negative charge..you get my point??opposites attract..ahm..(okay shobe we got it!) hehe.leaving your skin cleansed and refreshed..it also speeds up the natural healing process..VERY NICE!!

click to enlarge...directions..product descriptions.blah blah blah...
okay..so this is the medium that i mix with the clay..which is in powder form by the way...you can use water..but this stuff is better for me..

internal benefits:

rich in enzyme potassium/support a healthy immune system/helps control weight/promotes digestion and ph balance/helps soothe dry throat/remove toxins/

external benefits.
helps maintain a healthy skin/helps promote a youthful healthy body/soothes irritate skin/relieves muscle pain from exercise

So..basically..it cleanse your skin as per normal as a toner or splash. The Cider Vinegar acts as an astringent and helps remove excess oil, kills bacteria, and normalizes the skin's pH.....`good for acne prone skin and people with large pores ^^.

so this is what the aztec healing clay looks like

now below are some infos on how i use them...first is you have to use NON METAL utensils(metals are said to have positive charge and it will decrease the clay's effectivity)...plastic spoon for mixing and a plastic bowl...i scoop 2 spoonfulls of the powder..it actuallydepends on how much you need.


then i pour the apple cider vinegar..(mixture will sizzle..haha)..pls watch the video.


*its your call on how much ACV you will pour,to get the right consistency.

this is what it looks like after mixing..


after i wash my face(i use cyleina black pearl)this is my night soap.


i use my fingers to apply it on my face..spread it evenly and as thick as possible..1/2 inch thick.


scary....be sure to clip your hair away from your face ahaha..


after 15-20 mins..it dries up completely and you can feel the clay tightening..dont leave it more than 20 mins..they say that you will feel your skin pulsate..well..i dont know about the pulsating sensation..maybe thats just the clay drying and tightening in your skin..

now after that i wash my face with warm water...(this one is kind of messy to remove)..clay will fall out of your face..be sure to tuck your lips in and close your eyes..

after i completely wash it off and patted my face dry..here is my skin...your skin will have a reddish afterglow dont worry its normal it'll subside after 30 mins or so..

close up...pores??less visible..barely there..nada!!..it leaves my skin soft and smooth to touch...(Mind You..i have very annoying blackheads..an oil mine,thus greasy face is common,when i started using the ACV (toner) and Aztec clay..it totally controls everything).(click to enlarge)


after that...i pump a pea size amount of emu oil on to my finger and pat it on my cheeks..and place where i need moisturizing...or you can do it in a SLAPPING motion...(ouch)



after 3 mins i apply my essence(sana nameraka honpo)i like this one..i never really like using emulsions or essences since its greasy and i really dont know what they are for...but when i tried this one..i fell in love with it..yes its a little bit greasy that is why i prefer using it at night..but when i wake up everymorning it leaves my skin so bouncy..soft..i like touching it..hehe..



essence on my hand.


pat or slap it on your face...=p

after all that slapping and patting ahaha


then i pump out a small amount of emu oil again and apply it on my scars,bumps,etc,,(spot treatment)


close up....almost all of the things that i have used is organic...i feel safe using them..haha

now here is a little beneficial info..


aztec indian healing clay


its highest power lies in the ability to absorb toxins, impurities, heavy metals and other internal contaminants. Bentonite clay's structure assists it in attracting and soaking up poisons on its exterior wall and then slowly drawing them into the interior center of the clay where they are held in a sort of repository. To state it another way, Bentonite is swelling clay. When it becomes mixed with water it rapidly swells open like a highly porous sponge. From here the toxins are drawn into the sponge through electrical attraction and once there, they are bound.
For internal use, start with a teaspoon mixed thoroughly in 8 oz. of water. After a few days or so, you may want to increase the amount of clay to a tablespoon. It is best taken on an empty stomach and not in combination with other herbs, vitamins, or medication.
A clay mask made from Bentonite draws excess oils and debris to the surface of your skin, boosts circulation to tighten the skin and stimulate blood flow, and whisks away dead skin cells that can clog pores.
To control itching: A simple “mud pack” made with bentonite clay and enough water to create a thick goo can help control the itch and dry up blisters, herbalists say. Spread the clay over the affected area and let air dry. Keep it on until the clay wears off or gets itchy. Wash off the residue.
For first-aid: To make a healing pack, mix Bentonite clay or baking soda and oatmeal with water and an anti-infection herb or an herbal tincture. Apply to pimples, boils, or wounds
apple cider vinegar.

Dandruff-
A home remedy for dandruff is to mix 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar with 1/4 cup water. The vinegar solution is thought to restore the restore the pH balance of the scalp and discourage the overgrowth of malassezia furfur, the yeast-like fungus thought to trigger dandruff.

Acne 
Apple cider vinegar is a home remedy for acne. A typical application is one part apple cider vinegar to three parts water and the solution is dabbed onto the pimple. Although some people swear by it, caution should be used because there have been case reports of skin damage and burns from using full-strength vinegar on the face.
Blood Pressure-
Preliminary studies suggest that the acetic acid in vinegar may help to lower blood pressure. How it might work is unclear, although studies suggest that it may increase levels of nitric oxide, a compound in the body that relaxes blood vessels, or it might inhibit an enzyme called angiotensin-converting enzyme from
EMU OIL-
is a proven anti-inflammatory, with effects comparable to that of ibuprofen;a bacteriostatic, meaning that it does not promote the growth of bacteria; a Hypoallergenic, which means it is not known to cause skin irritation or have any side effects; a highly penetrating oil that absorbs without leaving a greasy feel; and a non-comedogenic, meaning that it does not clog pores.Emu oil naturally contains Vitamin E, which is a major antioxidant and healing agent; Vitamin A, a known skin repairer and antioxidant; Linoleic acid, which helps to ease muscle aches and joint pain; Oleic acid, which is a proven skin cell regenerator and anti-wrinkle agent; Sapogens, proven skin softeners; and Terpines, known antiseptics.Emu oil products make wonderful moisturizers that can smooth and condition rough elbows, knees and heels; soften and moisturize hands and cuticles; reduce the itching and flakiness associated with dry skin; and protect the face and hands from wind and weather.Best of all, emu oil skin care products contain powerful antioxidants, as well as a known skin cell regenerator and anti-wrinkle agent, helping to improve the condition of aging skin. Offering both skin-thickening and moisturizing properties, emu oil skin care products help counter the wrinkles and dry, scaly, thinning skin that commonly occur with aging by moisturizing, lubricating and replenishing dry or irritated skin on the face, hands and body: and by preventing additional moisture loss by forming a protective barrier.so thats it..i hope this post is informative to some of you guys..and remember that even if its organic dont over use it..anything that is taken or used more than normal can be harmful..i researched a lot of articles first prior to using this products,just to be sure its safe..=D ..

take care guys and thanks for visiting have a nice day!!..

aztec is the best!

Anonymous said...

san ako pde makabili ng aztec clay and how much?

Littlebeautybag_camille said...

Depends on ur skin,if oily ka katulad ko twice or thrice a week is enough,and for the eskinol,I don't recommend applying that pa after the mask,it might irritate ur skin,the mask is for sucking the oils and dirt sa pores so no need na for eskinol

Ely said...

Hi there, I just read your comments about the AHC
just wanna ask if ok lang ba na gumamit ako ng eskinol after puttin it??
for example mga kinaumagahan ganyan..
tsaka gano kdalas mo sya dapat gamitin for best results??
everyday? week?? month??

need your reply first time ko kasi.. salamat

Zel said...

Wow this was very helpful compared to the other reviews! Thanks! Btw, you have great skin! How's the clay coming now since it's 2012? :D

Ynnah Mae Sanchez said...

Pwede po ba maglagay ng toner after gamitin to?

Littlebeautybag_camille said...

yes,pwede,but be sure it doesnt have any alcohol kasi it will dry out your skin more,this sucks out oil on your face so better use an alcohol free toner.

Maggie said...

Hi, I'm from Pacita, Laguna and I was looking for this product. Can I know where did you buy this?
