To clay or not to clay.

Clay is clay right? No. 

Trying to keep a perfect skincare routine can be demanding but once you find what works, a routine is easier to maintain.

Using a clay face mask practically saves the day by detoxifying and plumping up the skin cells to restore it to its rejuvenated state. Also, I quite love the feeling of a clay mask as it begins to dry, you can really feel the benefits straight away.

So clays....

Bentonite Clay

A multi-functional product, bentonite clay helps in cleaning the skin’s surface by performing multiple operations. It treats oily skin, heals acne, unclogs pores and regenerates skin tissues. It effectively removes blackheads and whiteheads from deep within the skin, reduces blemishes and makes the skin tone even. Therefore, it flushes out the toxins and exfoliates the skin, making it appear soft and bright.

French Green Clay

French Green Clay is a bright green clay consisting of kelp and algae. It is useful in treating sunburns, skin allergies and rashes. Thus, it is a good option for detoxifying and healing the skin. Additionally, it helps in exfoliation, pore-tightening, and oil-absorption. Its absorbent feature is so remarkable that it pulls blood towards the skin surface, thus boosting circulation and making the skin appear plump and fresher.

Rhassoul Clay

Rhassoul Clay is a mineral-rich Moroccan clay that is used instead of soap and shampoo. Its adsorption power attracts positively charged particles or/and impurities towards itself, thus deep cleaning the skin. It revitalizes the skin, increases skin elasticity, reduces blemishes,  blackheads and evens skin tone.

Kaolin Clay

Kaolin Clay is also called China clay. The off-white Kaolin clay is the most used among its different colors. It is suitable for dry and sensitive skin as it is the gentlest clay. It is mostly popular for softening and exfoliating the skin rather than its adsorbing feature. This is why it’s our firm favourite as it’s suitable to all.

Fuller Earth Clay

Commonly known as Multani Mitti, this clay is the ultimate oil absorber. It literally draws out oil from the skin and can be applied for fighting acne and pimples. Perfect for oily skin and hyperpigmented skin, it helps to even out the skin tone and reduce scars. Should be used less regularly due to its absorbing effects.
