The benefits of using a clay mask

Clay masks don’t have to be something you treat yourself to at the spa! The wonderful effects of a clay mask can be easily added to your beauty care routine. Clay masks are perfect for giving your skin a healthy boost of vitamins and minerals and letting your natural glow radiate. 

Unclog your pores 
Oily skin and acne are not just reserved just for those with younger skin. A small amount of oil helps to keep the skin soft and smooth but for those who have a naturally oily complexion, it can leave the skin looking shiny and greasy. Clay masks are easily able to absorb excess oil without leaving skin feeling dry and tight, leaving your pores free to breathe and hydrate.

Remove unwanted toxins 
Clay is credited with having natural detoxification properties and even has a strong negative electrical charge. When a clay mask is applied directly to the skin this charge is able to bind with those unwanted toxins and remove them. Dead skin cells contain dirt, oil, and waste build up which gathers on the surface of your skin. If dead skin is left for too long it can lead to dreaded breakouts. Using a clay mask two or three times a week to exfoliate naturally purifies and works wonders with helping you to keep your facial appearance looking fresh and smooth.

This brings all the waste to the surface leaving you free to wash it all away. Clay masks work as a natural antibiotic and it can work wonders on skin inflammations or complaints like eczema and dermatitis. It’s super effective and promotes healthy, vibrant looking skin.
