Gianne’s Wellness Pick: Aztec Clay Mask
Since founding WELL Summit, I’ve become a bit of a wellness product junkie. Organic mattress: Check. Squatty potty: Check. Matcha latte: Check. You can’t tell me I’m not living that wellness life!
One perk of my job is that our team is always researching and connecting with amazing brands to feature on WELL Insiders and to showcase in WELL Summit’s marketplace. Between the fantastic WELL Summit partners’ products we get to test and the stocked gift bags I receive from my speaking engagements, I get to try out a lot of wellness products. New products. Not yet released products. Products with a cult following. My goal is to do the detective work (lots of trial and error) to find that brands that are easy-to-use, trustworthy, and help me (and you) get closer to the goal of 360-degree wellness in my everyday life.
I’m always getting asked what I use in my personal routine, or what new brand my friends should know about—and that’s how we brainstormed this latest series, where I’ll be sharing my top wellness pick once a week. Not only will I share a personal, tried-and-true favorite, but I’ll also tell you a bit about the brand (so many wellness brands are started out of the founder’s passion) and give you details on why it might be a good fit for you. Think of this column as our chance to have a girl’s night together. So, keep reading (and bookmark this page!) for my Wellness Pick of the Week!
This week, I’m presenting you with my secret to clear, smooth skin—and it’s under $10!
I can literally feel this Aztec Clay Mask working on my skin. It contains only 100% pure calcium Bentonite clay, no additives, dyes, fragrances or other ingredients. Bentonite clay is made from volcanic ash and is known for its detoxing properties (some people take it internally to detox from heavy metals or toxins—but don’t do that without checking with your doctor first), so it’s an incredibly powerful treatment to help your skin stay balanced. It has more than 11,000 five-star reviews on Amazon, and it’s touted as one of the best masks to help reduce acne. It’s super easy to use as a spot treatment, when you feel something starting to rear its blemish-y head!
My skin leans towards being more sensitive so I only use the Aztec Mask about once a month, but it is a year-round staple in my medicine cabinet. I do find it to be very active, so I make sure to follow up with a very nourishing face cream afterward. I also use Josh Rosebrook’s Hydrating Accelerator after this mask!
I’m a fan of the Atzec mask because it works—and because it rings in at a price point of just $9.99. It will last you quite a while, as each jar contains a pound of product. That’s a big bang for your buck, especially when it works this well.
You can buy yours here.
