Benefits of using a clay mask

Clay Masks are a completely natural way to detoxify, cleanse, purify, exfoliate and beautify your skin without any negative side effects.

5 Benefits of using a clay mask.


When  clay is applied to the skin and left to dry, as in the case of a clay face mask, it binds to bacteria on the surface of the skin and deep in the pores. It brings the dried up impurities  to the surface of the skin to then be washed away.

Detoxifies & Purifies the Skin

Clay masks are well know for their detoxification properties and their ability to draw out toxins. The use of a clay mask will leave your skin feeling renewed, refreshed, clean and less inflamed.

Unclogs and Shrinks Skin Pores

Clay masks are remarkable at pulling sebum, dirt and bacteria from the skin pores. Using a clay mask 1-2 times a week helps keep them clean and minimise their appearance.

Remember pores have a purpose. You can not make them disappear. Keeping them clean and clear and promoting healthy oil flow is key. 

Regulates Sebum Production

Clay masks are a fantastic remedy for oily and acne-prone skin. A clay mask can “soak” up excess sebum and clean out any clogged pores from the resulting excess oil.

Using a clay mask 1-2 times a week will help keep pores clean and minimise their appearance. Remembering you can not shrink pores all together they have an important purpose but helping to minimise their appearance is generally much desired.

Always follow with a plant-based moisturiser with healthy fats to restore some oil to the skin’s surface, that way it does not overproduce after the mask.

Softer, Smoother & Glowing Skin

Not only will do they remove dead skin cells, bacteria and debris, it will give your skin important nutrients it needs to glow. 

Promoting healthier more youthful skin naturally and reducing wrinkles and fine lines by promoting the number of collagen fibers by enhancing collagen synthesis are just another great benefits of using clay on the skin.

We love the use of clay masks in the Blush Essentials skincare routine.
