Clay has been a standout ingredient in many beauty routines for decades. Commonly saved for purifying and detoxifying treatments, clay can dramatically improve the overall clairty and appearance of your complexion.
Although there are many different types of clay used in beauty products, we have recently discovered the beautifying benefits of red clay.
Hailing from parts of France, Morocco and Brazil, red clay is rich in high levels of iron which is known to be wonderful for your skin. As with many clays, red clay contains minerals that soothe and balance the skin, absorbing excess oils and sebum but also has the added benefit of containing Iron Oxide, making it a particularly effective ingredient for purifying and strengthening the skin.
Especially wonderful for oily, blemish-prone skin types, red clay absorbs sebum build-up and clarifies your complexion without drying out your skin or leaving it feeling overly taut or dry.
Incorporating red clay into your beauty routine once or twice a week as a treatment could really see an improvement in the look and feel of your complexion.
