DIY: Affordable, Natural Mud Face Mask Using Rhassoul Clay

Christmas season is finally here. For some, it can be an exciting time,  but for others it can be stressful. Before the family arrives and you’re are slaving over a stove, make sure to schedule some “me” time to combat the stressful holiday season. Reducing stress is a vital and  important part of being healthy.

I created a simple, affordable and natural mud face mask.  This mud mask can cost anywhere from $30-$60 a session at many high-end health spas. If you can’t make it to the spa, you can turn your house into a mini spa for a fraction of the cost.

 DIY: Affordable & Natural Mud Face Mask Using Rhassoul Clay

Face Mask DIY Rhassoul Clay

Ingredients for Mud Mask

  • 1/2 TBS – Rhassoul clay or Red Clay
  • 1 TBS : Indian Healing Clay (Bentonite Clay)
  • 2-4 TBS: Water
  • 2 slices of cucumbers
  • Optional: 1 TBS gylcerin for extra moisture OR 1 TBS Bragg’s ACV for those with oily skin



  1. Mix all items together with finger, plastic or wood utensil to make a paste.  (Do not use metal utensils as metal interferes with the clay’s natural healing properties.)  
  2. Apply evenly on entire face except the eyes and lips
  3. Lay down and place sliced cucumbers on eyes for at least 10 minutes.
  4. After relaxing, remove face mask by putting a warm towel full of steam on your  face for a few minutes. This will loosen up the mud. Do this two to three times and then wipe off.
  5. If mud is still on your face, use a gentle cleansing soap to lather and remove.
  6. Apply your favorite night time moisture on your face to re-hydrate.

You can purchase Rhassoul Clay on Amazon or some local health food stores.

Since I have been stuck in the house,  it was a great time to do mud mask. If you are really trying to relax , I recommend hanging out by a fireplace or  lighting few of your favorite candles to enhance the relating ambiance.  I am a huge fan of Bronx Naturals custom candles.
