- 2 teaspoons of argan oil, jojoba, avocado depending on your skin's needs...

Avoid coconut oil if you have acne-prone skin, as coconut oil is comedogenic. The oil will prevent the mask from drying quickly; thus the application can last longer and the active ingredients will have time to act on the epidermis


In a non-metallic bowl, put the 2 clay and nila powders. Then add 1 teaspoon of oil and mix well. Then Add the rest of the oil little by little; until you obtain a smooth and homogeneous dough.

Apply to the face preferably with a brush. Leave to sour for 15 to 20 minutes.
