Clay Mask for Acne

Pimples, whiteheads and blackheads are common skin concerns formed when oil and dirt clog the pores of your face. How can clay masks help? Well, there are many benefits of using a facial clay mask, including its ability to absorb oil from the skin and keep mild forms of acne at bay.

Our handmade, natural and vegan face mask feels like a dream on your skin. Made from green clay and beneficial minerals, it does wonders for oily complexions.

What is green clay?

Green clay, also known as illite, is extremely mineral-rich in content. The beneficial minerals found in green clay include magnesium, potassium, calcium and zinc. Green clay can be mined from France, America and Australia.

Green Clay Face Mask

French green clay is well known for its effective absorbing properties, so it's most suited to those with oily skin. It is commonly used in face masks as it has a prized fine texture. Australian green clay is an efficient deep cleanser and is comprised of iron oxides, kelp and seaweed. When green clay powder is combined with water, it forms a paste that can remove residual makeup and excess oil. In addition, consistent and correct use of green clay facials may reduce the size of facial pores, resulting in healthy, glowing and smooth skin.

The vibrant green of the clay is derived from iron oxides and organic plant matter.

The benefits of green clay

Because green clay can be used to draw out oil and other impurities from the pores, it is a popular ingredient in clay masks for oily and acne-prone skin. The following are some of the other great benefits of using green clay:

* Dead skin cell exfoliation
* Circulation/stimulation
* Toning and firming the skin
* Assisting with healing blemishes
* Calming minor scrapes and insect bites
