Benefit's of Mud Masks - Facial and Body Wraps

Why do Facial Mud Masks?  Our step by step guideline on how your skin can look and feel better!

Why is our skin so important?
Our skin is the largest organ of our body. One of its important roles is to help the body eliminate toxins through sweating. When toxins escape through the skin they can get "trapped" and disrupt the skin's health integrity. The skin also "breathes". If the pores become clogged, various skin issues can arise – like eczema, pimples, black heads, acne, etc. The skin also reflects our health – it can be an early indicator of toxicity with in. Lastly, the skin is exposed to harmful pollutants in our environment, like air pollution and topical poisons (like gasoline fumes when we fill our cars). So it’s very important we take care of our skin by consuming skin nutritious foods and frequently helping it release toxins by doing facial and body masks, and detox mud baths.

How can I help my skin?
An important step in maintaining healthy skin is to draw out the impurities and toxins on a regular basis. Mud (or magnetic clay) has been used for centuries as a natural way to help the body release toxins through your skin. The mud is magnetically charged "negative" and toxins in your skin and body are magnetically charged "positive". The mud's magnetic charge is activated when it becomes wet, so when it's applied to the skin it attracts toxins to it and draws them out of your body.

What makes Not The Same's facial and body masks so special?
We prepare and sell our masks as a dry product, no moisture whatsoever. This allows them to be 100% natural and pure. All “wet” masks must have a preservative in them, our dry masks contain no preservatives or artificial ingredients. When you first "wet" our mask, it is at it's strongest magnetic charge which makes it stronger than any mask that is sold already "wet". Also, since our masks are sold dry, this allows greater flexibility in doing facials for various skin types. When you are doing your facial, you can “wet it” with pure water, floral water, essential oils, yogurt, honey, etc.
We also use a special blend of the best magnetic clays (mud) for your skin: Sea Clay, Rhassoul Clay, French Green Clay and a rare super-charged bentonite clay. This blend is mineral-rich with vital nutrients for your skin.  Click here to buy our Calistoga Mud Mask  

Mud Mask vs Seaweed Mask?

We get asked this question alot, and basically both masks have the same benefits mentioned above.  Here's the deciding factor I offer folks:  The Calistoga Mud Mask is a deeper drawing mask and is preferred on problem skin (deep blemishes, acne, even bug bites); The Calsitoga Seaweed Mask is alittle milder and offers more immune system and collagen strengtheners.  As our skin matures, the Seaweed mask will help to keep skin clear and younger-looking.   Both masks are fine on all skin types and no matter what, your skin will be deep cleaned, more tone and ph balanced!  Youl'll love how smooth it feels!
