Mix the Redmond Clay with water to make a gel the consistency of mustard. Then apply the gel/paste directly on the skin for a drawing effect. If the clay is not covered it will dry out, and as it dries, you will feel it draw and pull. If you want a tightening effect, as in the case of a facial, leave it on until it is almost, but not totally dry, then remove.
If you want a more cooling and soothing effect, cover the gel with a plastic covering or wet cloth so it won’t dry out. To remove the clay pack, simply wash it off with water and a gentle rubbing motion.
Do not reuse the clay pack. Other external uses have been as a talcum powder or a diapering powder.
Pre-mixed ready to use gel
Mix two parts water with one part Redmond Clay to make a gel or mud, to create a smooth and creamy consistency. It should make a mud the consistency of mustard. If it seems too thin, add more clay. If it seems too thick add more water. Store the gel in a covered, non-metallic container and it will not dry out and will not separate. If it does dry out over prolonged storage, just add water and remix.
