Are you looking for an effective solution for your acne?

Prescription medications are often ineffective when dealing with certain types of acne. If you suffer from deep cystic acne or sebum build-up beneath the skin's surface, most medications will only improve your skin moderately.

Prescription Acne Cream and Pills

Filling yourself with pills and applying steroid acne creams can have negative side-effects. Prescription medications wreak havoc on your internal systems, while topical pimple creams can cause further irritation and inflammation.

More often than not, these forms of treatments will lead you to more frustration and additional expenses.

A better solution is to use natural products that are for good for your skin. Natural skin solutions are certainly cheaper than prescription medications and most over-the-counter acne creams.

Natural Treatments for Acne

What is the best natural product to get rid of acne?

There are many healthier alternatives to prescription acne medication.

One of the best natural products for clearing up your skin is a special clay called Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay.

What is Aztec Healing Clay?

It is a unique type of clay derived from volcanic ash. The original name of the product is “Bentonite” clay which got its name from the Montmorillon region of France. In Europe, it is often referred to as “Montmorillonite” clay.

Although most people have just started to discover the benefits of this clay, it has been used for centuries by traditional cultures all around the world to purify the skin.

How does the clay get rid of acne?

It all has to do with chemical attraction.

When the clay is in its natural wet form, it has negatively charged molecules. Most harmful bacteria and toxins are positively charged. Therefore, when you apply the wet clay, it binds easily to the toxic molecules within your skin. Then as the clay hardens, it naturally draws out the toxins from your pores.

How is the clay used on your face?

When you use the Aztec Healing Clay, you have two options.

  1. You can apply the clay as a complete facial mask and leave it on for an hour.
  2. Alternatively, try a spot treatment and leave the clay on the acne overnight.

Applying the clay as a facial mask and leaving it on for an hour is a good method for preventing future acne flare-ups. Depending on your skin's sensitivity, you could do a 1-hour facial once a week or once a month.

However, using the clay as a spot treatment overnight is very effective for getting rid of acne that is already on your skin. You simply apply the wet clay to the acne area before you sleep. Then, in the morning, you can wash off the hardened clay.

Details about how to get rid of acne overnight using the spot treatment method are highlighted below.

Acne Spot Treatment with Aztec Healing Clay

To prepare the spot treatment, you will only need a few items. Everything can be purchased online or at most major supermarkets.

Your Shopping List

  • Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay (or a similar bentonite clay product)
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Plastic Spoon
  • Plastic Bowel (eg. Tupperware)

First, you need to buy a container of Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay.

Bentonite clay sold by other companies will work too. For instance, you can also try the bentonite clay products sold by Now Foods or Frontier National Products.

You should also purchase some apple cider vinegar (ACV).

Mixing the clay with water will work too, but it will not be as strong or effective as ACV. You could test with both to see what you prefer.

You will need a plastic spoon and plastic bowl to mix it with. Using metal is not advisable since it can significantly reduce the effectiveness of the clay. If you prefer not to use plastic, try a porcelain spoon and bowl. Glass or wood works too. Just don’t use metal utensils.

Mixing the clay in a small Tupperware container is very convenient. This way, you can seal it and save it for the next day or later in the week. It also saves mixing time.

1. Prepare the Clay-ACV Mixture

Once you have everything ready, mix the clay with the ACV. The amount will depend on how much you need for the spot treatment. The ratio should be 1:1 (one part clay to one part ACV).

Start with one tablespoon of clay powder and mix it with one tablespoon of ACV in the bowl. Make sure you mix it so the texture is like a thick dense cream. The consistency should be smooth but not runny; thick but not clumpy.

2. Apply the Acne Spot Treatment

Before you apply the clay, remember to wash your face and hands. It also helps to rinse your face with warm water to open up your pores. This way, the clay can penetrate deeper into your skin.

With your finger, apply the clay onto the acne spots. Half a millimeter to one millimeter in thickness should be sufficient enough. However, you can add more clay layers if you think it is more effective.

Finally, go to bed with the clay on your acne spots.

You should sleep on your back to prevent the clay from rubbing off. However, if you like to sleep on your side, you can wait about 10 to 20 minutes for the clay to harden before you go to bed. The clay will remain on your face after it has hardened and won’t rub off as easily.

3. Complete the Acne Spot Treatment

When you wake up in the morning, rinse the hardened clay off with warm water. Then, wash your face and apply some natural moisturizer, such as aloe vera.

The aloe will help soothe and further replenish the skin.

After this overnight treatment, you should notice a significant improvement in your skin.

Smaller pimples will get dried out and disappear. Deeper cystic acne will become less inflamed and the excess sebum within your pores will be radically reduced.

      I just happened to stumble upon your article. I have been wondering what Aztec healing clay was for some time. I often see ads for it but had no idea what to use it for! Look forward to trying it out during my next outbreak of pimples!
