Clay is one of the most cleansing and detoxifying ingredients you can use on your skin. Rich in minerals, the benefits of clay for skin in helping to clear blemishes, draw out impurities and leave you with a brighter complexion, are unrivalled.
There are many different types of clay: from Rose and Kaolin, to French Green and Red. All of them are to be used when your skin needs a detox, as it is a very purifying ingredient.
What Is The Right Clay For My Skin Type?
These different types of clay contain varying levels of minerals, and therefore work better on different skin types. Using the right one for your needs will ensure you end up with a gorgeous and healthy complexion without any side effects.
If you have normal skin, you want to make sure your skin remains balanced and well hydrated after treatment, so you need to use a clay that won’t strip your skin of moisture.
Kaolin Clay is one of the mildest clays available, as it gently cleanses the skin without removing too much oil and causing sensitivity to the skin. Its mild exfoliant properties help to remove dead skin cells and impurities from the skin, reducing blemishes and imperfections.
For a gentle cleanse, opt for the MÁDARA Blackberry White Clay Soap, as the Kaolin helps to remove surface impurities without disrupting the natural balance of your skin. The natural and organic ingredients will also nourish without causing irritation. For a more intensive treatment option, opt for the Chantecaille Detox Clay Mask, which contains Kaolin to cleanse, and Rosewater to soothe, so your complexion is left feeling purified yet hydrated.
