Bentonite Clay Clearing Up Breakout



Just to follow up on my post from yesterday, my terrible seb derm acne breakout is starting to clear up. It was looking really bad yesterday. I don't think I've ever had an acne breakout quite like that before. I was getting so desperate for a remedy that I considered buying a traditional acne product from the store, which would have been the first time I had done that in years. I ended up deciding to hold off on the acne creams and give my current arsenal of products one more shot. This was a difficult decision since I had just spent the whole day out with people trying to hide my face in embarrassment.

All I have to say is thank god for bentonite clay. As soon as I got home last night, I made a mixture of apple cider vinegar and Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay and slathered it on my acne-ridden jawline. As the clay hardened up and gripped onto my face, I hoped that the pustules on my face were being slowly suffocated to death once and for all. I just wanted to be done with this breakout.

After 30 minutes I washed the mask off in the shower and used my zinc pyrithione bar soap. When I finished my shower and looked in the mirror, I was pleasantly surprised to see that a lot of the pustules had dried right up and were starting to fall off. When I woke up this morning, roughly 80% of the acne from the day before was gone. There is still some left, and a couple new spots popped up, but overall it's a huge improvement over yesterday and I think this breakout is seeing its last days.

I used the bentonite clay for my last breakout as well and noticed good results, but I wasn't sure if the results were due to the clay since I was using several products at once. Now I'm almost positive it's the clay that's making the most difference. I'm so impressed with this stuff that I may start doing regular clay masks every few days just for general skin maintenance.


Just wanted to follow up to say that today, a mere 2 days after using the clay, all of my active acne spots are gone. There is only some faint redness where the spots once were. I've honestly never raved about a skin product like this before, but I seriously can't believe how quickly the bentonite clay killed my breakout. The difference between my face today and my face 2 days ago is striking.

I love this clay. I will never use anything else again. The feeling of it sucking ick out my pores was astounding. I think more people need to know about this.
