Clay masks benefits

For thousands of years, clay was used in skincare, cosmetics, and medicine.  Applied externally, they nourish, cleanse, exfoliate, tone, and rejuvenate the skin.   

Why are clay masks so beneficial?

Being earth, they're rich in minerals and trace elements (such as calcium, copper, iron, silica, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, and zinc) that are quickly absorbed.  The different clay colors indicate different nutrient content.

When the mask is first applied, the body's heat gently warms it.  This open's the skin's pores and stimulates blood and lymph circulation.  Over the next 20-60 minutes, as the mask slowly dries, the clay nourishes the skin, draws out impurities, reduces oiliness, exfoliates, and finally closes or 'refines' the pores. 

After mask removal, the skin has less inflammation, smaller pores, and firmer contours.
