Clay Masks for Beautiful Skin
Enjoying a clay mask is much more than just a treat for ‘me time’. Clay masks are rooted in ancient times, and many cultures throughout the ages have used various clays to help rid the body of toxins and impurities, both topically and internally.
As we make our way through the day, impurities such as dirt, dead skin and oil build up on your skin. This can leave your skin looking dull, clogging pores and making them appear larger and can lead to acne problems. Using a clay mask helps to detoxify your skin, leaving it clean and fresh.
So Many Benefits!
Clay masks offer plenty of benefits. When used weekly, clay masks can help with a variety of skin issues. Oily skin? Clay masks can matte the appearance of skin to help reduce overall shininess. Tight, dry skin? If your skin is feeling a bit stressed, the gentle cleansing of a clay mask will soothe your skin. Enlarged pores? Clay masks help to tone and refine your pores, leaving your skin smooth and more even looking. It’s also great for acne prone skin types by removing oils, dirt and debris from your skin before it has a chance to cause pimples.
Clay masks come in many forms. Barely Blush’s premier clay mask makes use of a healing clay called Bentonite Clay. Bentonite clay consists of ages ash from volcanoes, named after the town in America with the world’s largest known deposit of clay, Fort Benton, Montana. It’s also known in other parts of the world as Montmorillonite clay, from the region of France where it was first found. Today, Bentonite is largely mined in the US, France and Italy.
What Is Bentonite Clay?
Bentonite clay has high concentrations of minerals that are good for our skin and body, such as calcium, potassium, silica, magnesium, and iron. It is able to absorb and remove toxins, heavy metals, impurities, and chemicals from your skin. Therefore, bentonite clay makes a great ingredient to detox and cleanse your skin.
This clay traces its roots to traditional healing uses far and wide, from regions of the Andes, Central Africa and Australia. It has been used to protect people from disease, toxins and poisons by applying to the skin, and even eaten, for centuries.
Bentonite clay has a unique quality that helps remove toxins from the skin. When this clay is moistened, it produced a strong negative electrical charge. Many toxins carry a positive charge, and the clay then bonds to the positive charge and absorbs the toxin, pulling the toxins out of the skin. It then release those minerals we mentioned earlier into the skin and oxygenate skin cells as it pulls excess hydrogen from the skin. Bentonite is just one of the four key ingredients in Barely Blush’s Zinc and Sulphur Mask. Like a magnet attracting unwanted materials to the surface, this mask helps restore vitality and balance to your complexion. This mask provides all the benefits of Bentonite clay and smooth, silky results when used weekly.
