With skincare and beauty enthusiasts singing the praises of hydrating sheet masks, we must not forget the original mask—clay! A beauty solution fit for a queen that has been around for centuries. Everyone from Cleopatra to current-day celebrities utilise clay as part of their weekly beauty routine, so why not you too?
The History Of Clay Masks
Clay is naturally occurring formed from ash, weathering, or the erosion of rocks. It’s impossible to determine who discovered clay first for health and beauty, as its use can be traced back to Egypt, France, Germany, Mexico, and a long list of countries. What all cultures had in common is that they used clay both internally and externally for health and beauty. A truly timeless solution that is more popular now than ever before.
The Beauty Benefits Of Clay
One of the most common ways to use clay is as a facial mask. Some masks are premixed making them fast and easy to use while others are a powder you mix with water or apple cider vinegar. Whichever route you go, clay has beauty benefits for every skin type:
- It pulls out impurities
- Refines and shrinks pores
- Minimises oil and shine
- Brightens skin
- Tightens skin
- Minimises breakouts
But What If Clay Dries Out Your Skin?
You aren’t alone if your skin looks great but feels a bit dry after applying a clay mask, and still after applying your go-to moisturiser. Our clay masks specifically address the issue of dryness form clay masks with our Hemp Seed Oil Infused Clay Masks. You will enjoy all the beautifying benefits of clay but when you wash away your mask the hemp seed oil leaves your skin glowing and hydrated.
