Blue Clay Mask Recipe
DIY Clay Mask
Clay masks are excellent treatments for your skin! Clay simultaneously cleanses and nourishes, giving you a clean and radiant complexion. These masks draw out dirt, grease, and other unwanted impurities, while your skin absorbs the minerals and nutrients the clay holds.
The powdered clay comes from blue-green algae, which is exceptionally nutrient-rich, containing chlorophyll, protein, minerals, amino acids, and natural enzymes that restore moisture to the skin and improve elasticity.
Say goodbye to toxins and bacteria; this mask removes these imperfections from your pores, ensuring their health and beauty.
The blue clay mask also works to tone and tighten, especially in prone-to-sagging areas. Masks also exfoliate the outer layer of the dermis, giving it a refreshed look.
They work well on an acne-prone complexion as they work to fight against breakouts and shrink down large pores laden with dirt and grime.
They are also super moisturizing, leaving you with soft, hydrated skin. Overall, this at-home mask treatment can provide your face with some serious benefits, and you get to create it yourself!

Blue Clay Mask Recipe
- Powdered Blue Clay
- Distilled Water
- Glass or Stainless Steel Bowl
Before you begin, make sure to sanitize your work area and supplies. To know how to prepare to make homemade skincare products correctly, please watch our Beauty Blending 101 video.
To begin, determine how many masks you want to make. Next, put one part powdered mask into two parts of water (for example, one tablespoon of powder and two tablespoons of water) and mix well with a spoon. This will create a thick paste. Once it is thoroughly mixed, apply the mask to your face and neck.
Let dry for 10-15 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry. Make sure you follow up with your favorite moisturizer to hydrate the skin. Use 1 to 3 times a week for the best results.
To transform it into an anti-aging treatment, add one or more peptides. Add Pepha Tight in a 5% concentration or DMAE powder for additional tightening. For collagen boosting, add in Syn-Coll at a 3% concentration. Find these peptides and more anti-aging ingredients in your DIY Serum Boosters lotion-making supplies section of our website.
Clay Mask Benefits
If you want to shave a few years from your face, you've probably tried many anti-aging beauty products.
While plenty of products will give your skin a more youthful appearance, sometimes you want quick results. Unfortunately, like today, you don't have time to use your eye cream and wait.
Cosmetic surgery is always an option. Plenty of injections like Botox or various fillers can give you the results you are looking for. Plus, there is still an actual surgical procedure.
However, those effects aren't always instant, and there is downtime. Besides, they can be painful and costly.
Don't despair. You can add two products to your skincare routine to see instant results and get long-term effects. Many skincare experts refer to these two items as "instant facelifts" because they show effects quickly.
We are talking about Pepha Tight and Hyaluronic Acid. These little miracle products of the skincare world. This article will explain these two products and how they can help you get your desired glowing, youthful skin.
What is Pepha Tight?
Pepha Tight is an extract from Nannochloropsis Oculata that has been highly purified and combined with polysaccharides. Nannochloropsis Oculata is a kind of microalga, and polysaccharides are a carbohydrate made of sugar molecules.
The algae extract is gathered from specially grown algae cultivated explicitly to produce the Pepha Tight. The conditions are kept perfect so that the algae produce a high-quality extract.
Skin Firming Attributes
Pepha Tight works immediately to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. It also has long-term effects since it encourages collagen formation, strengthening and restoring your complexion. It also creates a protective barrier on the skin to reduce free radicals and oxidative stress.
In a test group using Pepha Tight, 60% of the participants saw noticeable skin tightening right away after just a single application. In fact, 67% of the participants continued to notice an improvement when using the product for two weeks.
What Are HA, Hyaluron, and Sodium Hyaluronate?
HA is short for Hyaluronic Acid. You may also see HA written as Hyaluron or Sodium Hyaluronate. Some people get frightened when they see the word acid, especially if they have ever taken a chemistry course. However, Hyaluronic Acid is not one you need to be cautious about because it is already naturally occurring inside your body.
Our skin contains 60% of the HA present in our bodies. In your skin cells, it helps to retain moisture for a supple appearance. (it can hold 1000x its own weight in moisture!)
Give your face a hydrated look and a healthy glow!
Why You Should Add it to Your Skincare Routine
The expert hydration offered by Hyaluronic Acid greatly improves your skin's appearance. It can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles because your skin will be plumper when hydrated. Plus, Hyaluronic Acid products are suitable for any skin type.
Since it has antioxidant properties, Hyaluronic Acid can also help protect the skin from free radicals. It is beneficial for blocking out the effects of pollution.
It is safe to use on your skin and won't cause stripping, burning, or exfoliating. In addition, it is much gentler than the other acids you may have seen on the market.
Because your body naturally starts slowing down the production of Hyaluronic Acid, it is a good idea to add it to your beauty routine sooner rather than later. It will help keep your skin moisturized, reduce fine lines, and give you the youthful glow you desire.
Another added benefit of Hyaluronic Acid is that it promotes rejuvenation by regulating your levels of inflammation.
Get an Instant Face Lift
If you have little time to spare, you can give yourself an instant facelift without going under the knife! Both the Pepha Tight and the Hyaluronic Acid can provide a fresh-faced look. But when you add them both to our Blue Clay Moisturizing Mask, you get an instant facelift in just 15 minutes. You can also add other skin-tightening peptides like Relistase or Uplevity to boost your results.
This super moisturizing mask comes from blue-green algae found in Klamath Falls, Oregon. It contains nutrients such as chlorophyll, protein, minerals, amino acids, and natural enzymes. The mask alone will improve your skin's elasticity and restore moisture.
However, when you add the Pepha Tight and the Hyaluronic Acid, you get a 15-minute mask that will take your skin to the next level. You will see instant tightening, a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles, an even skin tone, and a plumper, more youthful glow.
The Blue Clay mask is suitable for all skin types. Plus, it is paraben-free, BPA-free, and cruelty-free. It is proudly made in the U.S.A.
You don't have to wait weeks or even months to see results. Get instant skin firming in just fifteen minutes with this winning combination of Blue Clay mask, Hyaluronic Acid, and Pepha Tight.
Trends Come and Go
In the beauty and skincare product world, ingredient trends come and go. Specific products may be touted one year as the miracle cure, and they go by the wayside next year. However, the research is firmly behind Hyaluronic Acid and Pepha Tight. Therefore, you can expect that these two ingredients are not a trend that will soon be forgotten. On the contrary, they are both considered high on the list in the upper echelon of skincare treatment options.
Feel confident about adding these two amazing products to your skincare regimen. You will be quite surprised by the results that you see. Your skin will be tighter, more radiant, and younger-looking from the first application.
Need More Tightening Effects?
Add our newest tightening peptide, Progeline! Progeline is an amazing peptide that lifts by increasing your skin's elasticity. Add a 2% concentration or 18 drops for each ounce: blend, and you are all set.
