The skin is the largest organ of the body and it is covered with pores through which unwanted chemicals /gases is easily absorbed.

Skin detox is a good way to cleanse / renew/ repair the skin and in the process getting rid of chemicals /gases that damage the skin . Most times ,we only get to do a skin detox when we go to the spa. However if you are unable to visit the spa, here is a recipe for skin detox you can apply at home. It involves natural products which are generally safe and usually non damaging to the skin.


Ingredients :

  • 100g  Rhassoul or bentonite clay ( Rhassoul clay usually comes lumpy, so you will most likely have to crush finely in a plastic or wooden container, avoid using steel or aluminium during processing)
  • 4 table spoons of Lemon/lime juice (freshly extracted)
  •  Organic honey (use honey to control consistency to your desired taste)
  • 3 tablespoons of brown sugar (or white)
  • 2 tablespoonsful organic coffee powder
  • 60ml Coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoonful Turmeric powder
  • 250 g of  African (raw) black soap / castile soap/ organic liquid soap



Mix all ingredients together in a non steel/aluminium container ; use wood or plastic only when mixing. Make sure the ingredients blend well together before scooping into a wide mouth container.

A batch from one i recently made for myself, came out really thick so i just simply add in honey to each amount i scoop to apply per time


For easy application, smoothen the paste over damp skin . Preferably, leave on till paste fully dries up then wash off. Depending on your skin type , you can repeat application at regular intervals.


I also use this mix as a scrub for my skin every now and then and my skin loves it. One of the reasons I like this mix is the fact that it doesn’t expose my skin to the kind of damage one can experience with chemical based products . If like me, you are skeptical about chemical based cosmetic products; you might want to give this a try.
