How Aztec Healing Clay Works?
The unique structure of the molecules in Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay carry a negative electron charge. This comes from the valence electron count from the specific minerals found in Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay.
When a spectrographic analysis is done on Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay, almost every mineral found on Earth is present. Aztec Secret is volcanic Ash from when the Earth was formed. It is the foam residue left as the planet cooled. The foam residue formed a pure clay vein layered between white sand near one of the lowest parts of planet Earth.
When a facial or clay poultice is applied to the skin, it forms a negative charge. Poisons and toxins stored in the epidermis have a positive charge - Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay lifts the pimple and blackheads into the clay bed to cause accelerated healing and nourishment to the skin with over 50 minerals.100% NATURAL.

Mask Of Magnaminty Self-Preserving
A multi-purpose mask with a mixture of gentle yet effective ingredients to clean, calm and clear the skin - now in a self-preserving formula.
Easily smoothed over the skin anywhere you like. This mask is made with peppermint oil to stimulate marigold oil and chlorophyllin to treat the skin; evening primrose seeds and aduki beans to gently exfoliate as you remove it. There's also mineral-rich kaolin to nourish, antibacterial honey, and peppermint oil to stimulate the blood cells just under the surface of your skin to leave it looking bright and refreshed.
What's the difference between the Original Mask Of Magnaminty formula and Self-Preserving?
The overall function they have is the same, and both will provide that deep cleanse. The main difference you may find is in how they feel on application. For example, the original Mask Of Magnaminty will dry as it sits on the skin, whereas its self-preserving counterpart maintains its softer texture. This is due to the higher quantity of honey and glycerine in the latter, which draws in and retains moisture.
The shelf-life is the same; the ingredients that get the job done are all the same (minus synthetic preservatives in the self-preserving formula). It all comes down to which you prefer to use.
Gently Balancing And Calming
A calming and moisturising face mask packed with antioxidant blueberries, calming calamine and balancing rose. Perfect for sensitive skin that needs a little help feeling balanced and mattified.
- Calamine powder is gentle on your skin, helping to keep it calm while talc absorbs excess oils.
- Calming chamomile and astringent rose help to soothe and balance your skin, reducing redness and evening skin tone.
- Almond oil is rich in Vitamin E. It helps to soften and moisturise your skin while also helping to even skin tone.
- Vitamin-rich blueberries are blended into this mask. Packed with antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E, they help to protect the skin from damage.
How to use: Smooth a generous layer of this mask onto clean skin and leave for 10 to 15 minutes before rinsing away with warm water. Pair with other gentle products such as Angels on Bare Skin fresh cleanser, Dream Steam toner tab and Celestial moisturiser.
How to store: Our Fresh Face Masks are made each week in our Lush Kitchens with a whole host of super-fresh ingredients. To ensure the freshest mask possible, store in the fridge between uses. As we hand make in small batches, you will receive your product with enough time to use within its 28-day shelf life.
Clay & Mud Masks FAQs
How often can you use a mud mask?
Ideally, the use of mud and clay masks should be restricted to one to two times a week. However, they make an excellent treatment for those with oily skin and can be used a maximum of three times a week.
As mud masks help to draw out impurities and excess oil from the skin, they should be worn for no longer than 15 minutes. Otherwise, the benefits of the mask may not be as successful. In fact, mud masks are much more effective if you don't let them dry out completely.
Are mud and clay face masks good for acne?
Mud and clay masks are the best options when it comes to face masks for acne-prone skin types. Not only do they help draw out any excess sebum or bacteria that is clogging pores, but they also absorb oil and dead skin cells from the skin's surface. Better still, as mud and clay masks work as a gentle exfoliant, they can remove the impurities that cause breakouts, reduce shine and provide a mattified complexion.
As well as being packed with purifying benefits, mud and clay masks are also bursting with minerals and nutrients that keep skin healthy and balanced. Copper, iron, magnesium, silica and calcium are just a few of the ingredients that treat ongoing symptoms of acne-prone skin, all whilst keeping your complexion firm, plump and scar-free.
What's the difference between a mud mask and a clay mask?
While mud masks and clay masks are extremely similar (they both come from the Earth), they also have their differences. The main difference being that mud is a skin-healing agent, whilst clay is a cosmetic drying agent.
Clay masks are most useful for those with oily, acne-prone skin types, as they help absorb the excess oils that cause breakouts, exfoliate away dead skin cells and minimise the appearance of enlarged pores.
On the other hand, mud is a water-based ingredient, so it is great at delivering hydrating benefits when in mask form. Mud masks are known to boost blood circulation, cleanse, moisturise and refresh tired skin. They even repair skin tissue and improve elasticity, making them a better option for those with dry and dull complexions or as a post-breakout treatment.
What is the best clay mask?
There are plenty of clay masks on the market, all of which offer excellent beautifying benefits. If you are new to the clay mask category, some cult-favourite clay masks come from brands such as La Roche-Posay, L'Oreal Paris and This Works.
If you have sensitive skin but still want to experience the purifying and clarifying benefits of a clay mask, then be sure to check out pink clay formulas. They're an extremely popular choice as they draw out impurities but are much more gentle on the skin.
If you're looking to achieve a serious deep clean, then opt for charcoal clay masks. They're the best at getting down and dirty and keeping both breakouts and blackheads at bay.
