Best Technique & Tools To Make A Clay Mask

When To Remove Your Clay Mask

If you have oily or acne-prone skin, clay masks are a must have. However, you don’t have to wait until it’s hard as a shell to rinse it off, especially if you have sensitive skin. The best technique to practice while using a clay mask is to rinse it off when it’s just finished drying. It’s okay if it’s not completely dry. Clay is only working when it’s in drying mode so it’s useless leaving the mask on your face for an extensive amount of time.

Your clay mask is working when the color starts to lighten up and feels a little sticky. The longer you leave it on, the more dry and irritant your face could possibly feel. — Luckily, KLAY Botanics includes botanical and Ayurvedic ingredients such as Aloe Vera and Neem that will moisturize and soothe your face while your clay mask is working.

The Best Tools To Use For Clay Mask


A flat foundation brush 

A flat facial brush will keep the process less messy, your hands clean, and spreads evenly all over your skin. You can buy a good foundation brush here.

A small non-metal bowl

Metal can make some clays, like Bentonite, less activate once it makes contact so it’s best to use a small wood, glass, or plastic bowl to mix your clay mask in. KLAY Botanics clays will work well in any bowl.

A wooden spoon

The best way to use a clay mask

Since some clays absorb metal and become less effective, you don’t want to use a metal spoon and risk this happening. Mini wooden spoons are great for mixing clays and clean off very easily. Stainless steel spoons are okay as well but it’s best to keep your eating utensils separate from your facial treatment tools. All clay mask orders comes with a FREE mini wooden spoon on

Hopefully these tips are useful and you have learned the proper way to use a clay mask. Please share some experiences or tips you have working with clay mask.

    Great information here! I bought my first clay mask powder a couple of years ago and definitely did not know all of this. I’ll make sure to apply this from now on, especially with me having sensitive-acne prone skin!
