So last night I made a thick batch of DE with distilled water and slathered on my face. Gently rubbed it in for a minute and then left it on for about 10. It dried fast!
When I took it off my skin felt so smooth, and my pores were greatly diminished. Of course my pores are back this morning...sigh.
I wonder if this can be used as a very gentle exfoliant to the skin? I googled it and it seems some beauty product lines use it, like Philosophy. Very interesting. I wonder if you could make something with jojoba oil and the earth to make a really nice exfoliant.
