Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay – does this clay mask really work? I was on the hunt for an amazing mask that didn’t break the budget. After traveling for almost the entire month of December, I was starting to break out. My skin was dull and stressed out – I was desperate to find an at-home facial or mask (the ones in San Francisco at a spa can run easily over $150 a pop!) I ain’t about that life.
I also wanted something quick, so I took to YouTube and quickly found the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay listing. It has thousands of reviews and it was under $9!
A lot of the reviews were good. Some were bad, though, saying it didn’t work or it made the person’s skin even worse. But thousands of good reviews and the cheap price made me curious. I ordered it and decided to try it out to share an honest review. Does Aztec Indian Healing Clay mask really work? Read on the find out and my tips for using the mask!
Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Review 2021
Indian Healing Clay How To Use It!
Start with your clay Aztec mask powder. Make sure to buy apple cider vinegar, this is great to keep on hand for gut health anyway. You can mix an aztec healing clay mask with water in a pinch BUT I don’t think it works nearly as well that way. The ACV makes it extra powerful.
Indian Healing Clay Mask Recipe
- Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Mixing Bowl
- Plastic Knife
- High Qaulity Face Oil
Grab a mixing bowl and plastic knife – this works great to spread the clay on your face! Mix 1 Tablespoon clay powder with a little less than 1 Tablespoon of ACV. The label says equal parts, but I find that a little less liquid is ideal. It will foam when you mix – don’t worry, that’s normal! Mix it into a nice, smooth paste and put a thick layer all over your face.
Wait 10 minutes if you have really sensitive skin. Wait for 20 minutes if you don’t. Time for that baby to dry and do its magic! It will crack and turn a light color as it dries. I find it’s best to put this on your face 20 minutes before you take a shower so you can just rinse it all off there.
It’s a bit hard to wash off since it’s clay and it dries hard. Use an old washcloth or paper towel if you are washing your face off in the sink.
Once you wash all the clay off, your face will be red in patches. That’s normal! They will go away in about 30 minutes. Make sure to apply a lot of this facial oil after the mask to keep your face hydrated after such a powerful treatment.
I recommend using the aztec clay mask everyday for 5-7 days or until your problem areas clear up considerably. Start with a full face mask, then day two just spot treat the problem areas, then the next day use a full face mask and so on. Once you’ve reset your skin, you can switch to using it once a week.
Indian Healing Clay Benefits
Ok wait, how does it stuff actually work though? It’s basically a vacuum for your skin pores. The calcium bentonite clay sucks all the toxins and buildup. That’s why Aztec clay mask ingredients are minimal and the natural — the calcium bentonite clay does all the heavy lifting!
I used this on my face but you can use Indian healing clay for hair, too! It works to detox your scalp and and help remove any silicon product build-up. It’s smart to also use clean shampoos to prevent this in the first place, but the mask helps to fix.
Does Aztec Indian Healing Clay Actually Work?
Yes! After a few weeks of using it, I can undoubtedly put my stamp of approval on this clay mask. After about 5 days of using Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay every day my pimples were gone and my skin was so clear and happy.
I used it and so did my husband. His face is VERY oily and he has always battled acne. Even his face is noticeably clearer. I’m not going to lie, I almost didn’t want to this to work so well. I wanted to be able to debunk it – I didn’t want to believe that a $9 facemask that I can order on Amazon or find in Target works so freaking well. But it does.
This isn’t an Aztec Clay Mask dermatologist review as I am not a medical professional. But as a beauty lover and blogger, I endorse this mask! But, if you are concerned about your skin or have any issues at all, don’t DM asking for help. You’ll need to talk to your doctor.
I originally wrote this Aztec clay mask review a couple of years ago and — I am still using it! But, I’ve started using Hers acne cream in my routine so I don’t break out much anymore. I still use the clay mask but maybe just once a season as part of a spa day.

Healing clay can be used for detoxification and healing purposes internally as well as externally. Calcium Bentonite a healing clay that is safe to ingest.
Healing clay is a food grade Calcium Bentonite Clay that is safe to ingest.
To detoxify the body on the inside, take 1 teaspoon of healing clay powder in 2 ounces of water. Shake well. Do not stir. Rest the mixture overnight to generate enough electrical charge in the water.
Shake it well before drinking the chalky mixture the first thing in the morning.
For the spot treatment, do you leave it on throughout the night or is the spot treatment only for 20 mins as well. Thanks!
I leave it on for 20 minutes. This stuff is pretty powerful so I would be careful about leaving it on for too long.
Has anyone seen any benefits from ingesting the clay?
Quick background… I went through Toxic shock Syndrom.. my uterus metabolized through the tampon almost leaving nothing left over 8 months… painful periods… 7 years later a miscarriage. I start drinking the clay and the first period I get 0 on the pain scale.. no pain. I wait for my next period. It is atleast 1 year since the miscarriage with no luck and then just a couple months into drinking the clay I get pregnant. Now I’m my 4th month along and I still drink the clay in small amounts per recommended by the book by Perry A. called ‘Living Clay’ and ‘Calcium Bentonite Clay’ by Perry A. Highly recommend reading if interested in understanding internal ingestion. I use Aztec Secret.
It goes in depth understanding even of the politics behind it.
I’ve had 0 negative side effects. My ears even cleared out from wax buildup and pain from using the phone particularly on my right side. I cannot say enough.
How long until you see results from the face mask?
I mixed the clay with Apple cider Vinegar but when I put it on my face its stings and its kinda unpleasant so if you have any tips or advice I am open ! Also I read somewhere that I can mix it with milk ???Is it possible ?
Yes, it will sting a bit but that means it’s working! You can mix with water if you absolutely hate the feeling but I recommend ACV for it’s skincare properties.
Try using water instead. It’s less harsh and your skin will feel better.
i have a harsh scar,it’s been a month since i use this mask but nothing happens.wht should i do?
I recently tried it. I am going it more time 😀 as of now I am not able to notice anything. Maybe yes it requires a month or so 🙂 Thank you for the review.
For the spot treatment, do you leave it on for the duration of the evening or is the spot treatment just for 20 mins too. Much obliged!
Hey, when you returned your items did you have to make individual RMA & USPS return labels for each item? The customer care is shady & wouldn’t answer that question. They also want you to return it in the clear packaging it came in??? Please let me know. I made a huge mistake & ordered a ton of clothes here on impulse (completely out of character for me.)
I bought this stuff as a teenager and still love it!
