Mainly because of it ability to expand and absorb up to 40x its weight in toxins- making it an awesome tool to draw out and remove impurities and stimulate circulation to the area treated.
Bentonite is an awesome clay for most all skin types, however I would only use this clay alone with water for extreme cases of oily skin. Otherwise mix with some other clays for additional properties, such as red clay,
And always, always mix with a carrier such as a lotion or cream instead of water when using clay- making a nice thick clay paste to apply to face. (or anywhere else you want to give some bentonite beauty!)
1/2-1 tsp of Bentonite Clay
Mix in an all natural cream base until you have a thick creamy mixture
Apply to skin for 30 minutes
Rinse off with warm water
