Why should you add a clay mask to your skincare routine?

It’s no coincidence that clay masks have become the must-have skincare product on all our shelves in recent years – they really work! If you’ve been thinking of adding this incredible product to your routine but not sure if it’s right for your skin, you’ve come to the right place. You see, clay masks are our thing and we do them really well (if we do say so ourselves).

Today, we’ll be focusing on the benefits of Kaolin Clay which is our clay of choice when developing our Hey Bud Hemp Clay Mask. This all-natural ingredient originates from China and has been used for centuries across the globe. Considered one of the milder cosmetic clays, Kaolin Clay is loaded with essential minerals, has a neutral pH balance and isn’t responsible for skin drying like some of its clay counterparts, making it ideal for a broader range of skin types.

So, what are some of the benefits you can expect from adding a clay mask to your skincare routine? Here’s the glow down.

Clay Masks are the gentle exfoliation you’ve been looking for

Does your skin get angry at the sheer thought of exfoliation? You’re not alone. For many acne-prone and sensitive skin types, physical exfoliation, such as scrubs, can be far too harsh and leaving the skin looking and feeling worse than before.

One of the leading benefits of a clay mask is that it will deliver a gentle exfoliation when applied to the skin. The natural texture of Kaolin Clay will help to slough away dead skin cell build-up without the irritation or stripping feeling you may have experienced before.

This gentle exfoliation will farewell unwanted dirt, grime and bacteria that has found its way onto your skin and is contributing to your breakouts. Additionally, by adding a reliable exfoliation into your regular skincare routine, you can expect a smoother and brighter skin texture which will support the reduction of acne scarring, superficial pigmentation, and unwanted discolouration such as dark spots.

Clay Masks will absorb excess oil for a shine-free finish

Our skin requires natural oils to function at its optimal level but for many, their skin is overproducing oil and leaving them with unwanted breakouts, congestion, and shininess.

Many with this skin type will avoid clay masks as they are known to strip the skin of moisture and a lack of moisture only results in more oil production. Fortunately, Kaolin Clay is one of the mildest clay options available and is celebrated for its ability to absorb excess oil without the causing dryness.

Used as part of your regular skincare routine, our Hemp Clay Mask helps your skin find a more regular level of oil flow. With added ingredients like Aloe Vera and Hemp Seed Oil, you’ll be welcoming back much needed moisture and hydration to the skin without any pore clogging in sight.

With a reduction in excess oil production and a boost in necessary hydration, regular use of a clay mask can contribute to fewer breakouts and a clearer and calmer complexion.

Clay Masks can bring all the zen vibes to your complexion

Is your skin feeling disrupted and inflamed from the likes of acne, redness, dryness, or sensitivity? Whilst a clay mask may not be the first skincare product that comes to mind when treating these conditions, we’re here to show how they can make a serious difference!

Kaolin Clay has been used for centuries as a topical soothing agent which means it’s going to bring some much-wanted relief to your irritated complexion. After removing your Hemp Clay Mask, you may notice that the redness around your breakouts has decreased considerably, and your skin tone is feeling much brighter and more even.

In our Hemp Clay Mask, you’ll find that we’ve supercharged the benefits of clay by adding a powerhouse of Vitamin E rich ingredients. Celebrated in the skincare world as the ultimate soothers, we’ve chosen Almond Oil and Avocado Oil as our Vitamin E ingredients of choice.

Both oils are loaded with anti-inflammatory benefits, as well as nourishing and moisturising nutrients that won’t leave you with an oily residue. In addition to calming inflamed skin, these ingredients boast protective antioxidant benefits and keep the skin looking and feeling smooth which can support the reduced appearance of acne scarring.
