The magic of dry Clay Masques

Author: Web Developer   Date Posted:5 June 2017 

Regular cleansing removes dirt and grime from the surface of the skin but a facial masque will draw impurities from beneath the top layer of the epidermis. It also helps exfoliate dead skin cells and unclog your pores so your toners, moisturisers and serums penetrate and work more effectively.

We have made a range of 4 dry masques specifically formulated using clays and botanical extracts to address specific skin issues. The benefits of a dry masque is that there is no need for any added preservative, making it 100% natural and you can mix it with whatever liquid you wish and to whatever consistency you wish. Make it fun and try mixing your masque with different liquids. You can try aloe vera juice, floral waters or hydrosols, tea, honey, freshly squeezed juice, milk or just use plain water. Once you make a mixture you can keep it in the fridge for up to a week .

There are 3 stages of a clay masque:

  1. There's the damp phase where your skin drinks in the beneficial minerals from the outside. 
  2. Then you have the start of the dry phase, which exercises your capillaries and stimulates blood flow as the mask cools and contracts. 
  3. Then there's the dry phase, which draws out moisture from the surface of your skin. 
  4. If you have sensitive skin its best to remove the masque before it completely hardens or you can leave to dry completely if your skin is oily.

How often should you use a masque? Up to 1-2 times per week for dry skin. 2-3 times per week for normal and combination skin and 3-5 times per week for oily skin types.

Clay masques can also be used on your neck, chest, back and legs and they are great for soothing insect bites and rashes.
