Prep Time 5 minutes
Servings 1 mask


  • 1 tsp raw cacao
  • 1 tsp bentonite clay
  • 1 tsp water (can substitute apple cider vinegar or milk)


  1. Combine the cacao and bentonite clay in a small bowl. (Avoid using a metal bowl or spoon. Metal reacts with bentonite clay and makes it less effective.)

  2. For immediate use, add water (or apple cider vinegar) and mix with your finger, adding more liquid if needed until a smooth paste forms.

  3. Use your fingertips to cover your face in a thin layer of the mixture.

  4. Let your mask sit on your face for 10 minutes. Rinse off and pat dry afterwards.
