I know this might sound cray-cray, but kitty litter is the key ingredient to one of the best face masks you will ever try! No joke.
Natural clay cat litter is made of the same ingredients as special clays found in lots of fancy schmancy, expensive spa facials. Enjoy this cheap, quirky, DIY face mask recipe, and lemme know what you think!
What you’ll need:
- Some fresh (from-the-bag) kitty litter (the 100% “natural” kind with sodium betonite clay)
- Filtered water
- A few drops of your fave essential oils (I personally ♥ peppermint)
Mix a couple tablespoons of kitty litter with water (enough to make it mask-y) and essential oil, and apply the mask to your face. Leave it on your face for about 10-15 minutes before rinsing off. You will love the way your skin feels afterwards!
*NOTE* I do not use clay litter for my cats, just for my face. Learn more about why clay litter is not recommended for cats here. If you’re looking for an amazing non-clay, clumping kitty litter that kicks some serious ass, I highly recommend World’s Best Cat Litter (appropriately named). It’s long-lasting, dust-free, biodegradable (made from corn), and seriously odor-absorbing (like fo’ realz—I’m talking 4-cat stank patrol).
