Why You Should use Natural Clay Masks in Your Skincare Routine

Posted by Brett Ashley on

Clay masks treat all skin types safely, with no irritation or redness. They work wonders with younger skin that may be prone to acne, and they boost elasticity and minimize signs of aging.

You would be surprised at how much dirt your face can accumulate throughout the day. Additionally, there are environmental toxins that seep into damage your skin.  When you mix dirt and toxins with excess oil, you get acne and other skin damage. Clay masks can eliminate toxins and dirt in the skin as the clay binds to these nasty elements to pull them away from the surface.

One of the coolest benefits of clay masks is that as they remove excess oil, they also saturate the skin with the nutrients the body needs to keep the skin smooth. Clay masks are filled with minerals the skin needs. As the masks sit on the face, nutrients sink into the skin and do their job to make the skin look soft, smooth and, oh course, brighter.

Lastly, dead skin cells make the skin look ruddy and blah. The problem is that everyone has dead cells on the surface of their skin. Clay masks, no matter how fine the powder is, do an excellent job to slough off dead skin cells to make the skin look fresh and bright.

To use a clay mask, there are 3 phases. 1.) The damp phase where your skin drinks in the beneficial minerals from the outside. 2.) The start of the dry phase, which exercises your capillaries and stimulates blood flow as the mask cools and contracts. and 3.) The dry phase, which draws out moisture from the surface of your skin, causing dehydration and irritation. So consider rinsing off your mask while it's still a little damp and sticky to avoid any moisture loss.

Skin Care Tip:  To maximize the effectiveness of a clay mask, keep a spray bottle with water on hand. Spritzing a little water on the mask while it sits on your face helps it continue to treat the skin.
