  • Using a warm cloth remove the mask and apply your favorite lotion


Make sure you don't use a metal spoon or bowl to mix or apply the mask. Metal deactivates the detoxing properties in the clay

Make sure you use traditional bentonite clay and not a knock-off. Likewise, look for pure, raw, un-strained apple cider vinegar (the one with the strings and mother still in the bottle). 
Make sure to do a "test patch" of the detox mask on your skin before applying. In some cases, the vinegar can cause irritation, leaving your skin red and raised. Always test first.
