To say that we are huge fans of Rhassoul clay is an understatement. We use it as a weekly face mask, a daily exfoliant and as an occasional hair mask.
We have experimented with Rhassoul clay based on traditional Moroccan recipes and after many muddy adventures, narrowed down to the best recipe in this post.
If you have blemishes, blackheads or you just feel that your skin can use some refining, whip up a Rhassoul clay mask. It’s very simple and easy to make. After 10 minutes on your face and a good wash, your skin will feel so much softer and look better.
Our foolproof recipe:
- 1 tablespoon of Rhassoul clay powder
- 2 tablespoons of warm water
For very dry skin, we recommend adding 2 drops of Argan Oil. If you do, you only need to use 1 tablespoons of Rhassoul to 1.5 tablespoon of warm water
Mix the ingredients together in a bowl using a mask brush or wood spoon. A muddy paste forms when the ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Apply on your face and neck. Leave for no more than 10 minutes or when you feel the mask is drying up before rinsing thoroughly. Follow with your toner and facial oil for greater results.
Our tips when you use Rhassoul clay:
- Never use metal spoons when mixing clays. They absorb metals and by using a metallic spoon to mix, you diminish the adsorption effectiveness of the clay.
- We like to put our Rhassoul mask on before jumping in the shower as it is easier to rinse off. Otherwise, we recommend using a damp cloth or sponge to help with the process.
- If you use Rhassoul to help with dry scalp, make sure that you apply the mask on combed hair. That will make it much easier to wash.
- Never leave a Rhassoul mask on your hair more than 15 minutes. If you feel that your hair is drying up, that is your cue to rinse it.
