I've been using this Indian healing clay mask (also known for aztec clay mask) for almost 2 weeks now, hoping that this "miracle" product would help my face clear. At first it made me break out a little but my face cleared within 5 days. Now my face is starting to break out again, even more with no improvement whatsoever, if not worse than it was before I started using this product. Now I have cystic acne above my lips, around my chin, and next to my nose. Idk if the product is suppose to do this or should I just stop using this product? I have senior pictures next week and idk what I'm left to do. Please help.

Bentonite clay is very powerful at drawing out impurities. Are you using this everyday or just once a week?

If you have cysts start icing them now and stop using the clay!

Caldesine baby powder with zinc oxide and hibiclens can help fight the current infection. Zinc oxide will help your skin heal and reduce scarring. Hibiclens watered down(just wet a cotton ball with water, then put about 4 drops of hibiclens on the cotton ball) swipe over face and let sit for 10 mins. Wash off with tepid water. Dust some caldesene(pink bottle) baby powder on face before bed. Use your hands or clean makeup brush.

Use Neutrogena baby SPF during the day. Has the same zinc oxide that the baby powder has. It will help your face heal while protecting it from scarring due to sun exposer.

Use Vaseline on any popped pimples. Neosporin will work too.

Thank you so much. I will definitely do this. I have been using the clay mask almost every day. But I won't anymore. Again thank you so much. :)
