The burn-out and stress from tirelessly working and stressing over deadlines not only mentally drains us but the effects immediately show up on our skin too! This stress can cause break-outs and dull the complexion overtime.
It’s crucial to treat the skin with a good detox, at least once a week. A deep cleansing clay mask is perhaps one of the most effective and minimal ways to achieve this.
There are different types of clays that are equally beneficial and instantly work to brighten the skin.
Bentonite is a mineral-rich, earthy clay with incredible healing aspects. Formed out of volcanic ash, it detoxes congested skin and exfoliates away every speck of dirt.
Kaolinite or French Green clay, mined from the depths of earth, is an ancient remedy to rescue your skin. Scrubbing it over your face with a little rosewater can really give you a baby soft finish, ready for toners and creams.
This clay is slightly grainy and therefore ideal for gently rubbing off the dead skin and removing excess oil. While being suitable for all skin-types, Rhassoul Clay is also good for softening up the skin while tightening pores.
Fuller’s Earth is a tried and tested solution for acne and blackheads. It draws out all the gunk and bacteria lurking on the surface of your face, while slowly fading away acne scars and marks.
Moroccan Red Clay
Made for dry acne prone skin, this clay mask is rich in magnesium, calcium, and potassium. Putting on a layer of it can do wonders for your skin-tone while getting rid of dry itchy skin. It doesn’t strip the natural oils away rather sufficiently rebalances flaky skin.
Using any of these clay masks, even once every week is more than enough to pamper your skin. You may ditch other effortful skincare while you’re at it because clay masks drastically cleanse and draw out toxins to give you a lovely glow for the entire week!
