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.
