Clay is often used in resorts for facial and spa treatments. It’s wonderful at absorbing dirt, oil, and bacteria, while being gentle on pores.

Some of the best known recipes are:

1. Recipe for translucent powder with cinnamon


  •  1 tablespoon ground organic cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of ground organic cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 15 drops of organic oil, with the aroma of your choice
  • ¼ tablespoon of Vitamin E


In a very clean container, all the ingredients should be mixed very well, breaking up any lumps that can be created with your fingers, then everything is placed in the mold where it will be stored and finally the mixture is imprisoned a little with the help of the back of a spoon.

2. Recipe with red clay


  • Very fine corn or rice flour
  • Red clay


In the same container where the powder will be stored, you should add the rice or corn flour until it is almost completely filled, then add a little red clay and stir everything very well. It shouldn’t be too much as you want a translucent powder. It must be shaken very well before use, and voila.

3. Recipe for translucent powder with cornstarch
