You may have heard about a few different types of clay masks—green clay, pink clay, white clay—but what does it all mean? What are the differences? Over hundreds of years, different kinds of clay masks have been used to cleanse, reinvigorate and remove impurities from the skin. If you’re wondering what type of clay mask is best for your unique skin type, read on to learn more.
White clay is the best option for normal or mature skin, but can also work for people with slightly dry or slightly oily skin types. The purpose of white clay is to gently remove impurities such as dirt, grime and oil build-up from your skin surface, and absorb excess oils that clog pores.
White clay also functions as a mild, gentle exfoliant, working to refine your complexion and reveal smooth, luminous skin. This specific type of clay mask is great for use before makeup, as it will remove dead and dry skin cells, leaving a smooth base, ready for you to apply your foundation.
Green clay, also known as French clay, is designed for oily, acne-prone or combination skin. Green clay is purposefully made to soak up any excess oils, unclogging your pores and protecting your skin from developing pimples and acne. It also works as a deep cleanser, balancing your pH levels and stimulating cell regeneration.
Use a green clay mask every night, and you’ll wake up with a radiant, lustrous complexion each time.
Pink clay is the perfect choice for people with sensitive or dry skin. By smoothly and gently exfoliating the skin’s surface, pink clay minimises hormonal breakouts, clears congestion, and removes blackheads.
As one of Australia’s purest clays, pink clay is great for detoxifying, reinvigorating and replenishing lost hydration. It will also work to remove any pollutants that come into contact with your skin.

There are so many skincare products out there, but not all of them contain the best ingredients - and sometimes we don't even know what the ingredients are! One natural, vegan, skincare ingredient you can rely on to be nourishing rather than damaging is Mica. But what is Mica? Where does it come from? And how can we use it to achieve better, brighter skin?
Don't ask me why, but I started searching the health benefits of singing in the shower and it turns out there are quite a few. So here are our favourite reasons to sing in the shower
First of all we want to stress that you DO NOT have to be a good singer, goodness knows I’m not.
Singing makes you happy by releasing endorphins - put on a few songs you love, even if you’re not in the mood, your favourite songs should get you singing and get you pumped for the day. Or help you relax at the end of a long day.
