What's So Good About Pink Clay Masks?
We often hear about the different types of clay, but what makes Pink Clay so special? To help you decide whether it's right for you, I've put together this guide to the benefits of Pink Clay and why it can be so beneficial for our skin.
In natural skin care, Pink Clay is known for its amazing benefits for sensitive skin. Referred to as the most gentle of all the clays, it's actually suitable for all skin types because of its very light texture yet deeply restorative properties. Unlike Green Clay, which works to absorb excess moisture and remove oiliness, Pink Clay does not remove the skin's natural oils, making it perfect for tight, dry and dehydrated skin which needs a helping hand when it comes to staying hydrated. Instead, it provides a boost of nutrients and minerals which help to replenish skin with the nourishment it needs to function well and retain moisture.
Pink Clay benefits
Perfect for dry and sensitive skin types, Pink Clay is a very mild combination of Red and White Clays. Rich in minerals including Silica, it helps to restore and replenish skin with moisture, draw out impurities and lightly exfoliate the complexion with its slightly grainy texture. Gentle on sensitive skin, Pink Clay can also help to reduce irritation and inflammation from skin concerns such as acne by soothing and balancing skin and promoting healthy cell renewal. With its smooth exfoliating action, Pink Clay can also help to minimise blackheads, hormonal breakouts and congestion, making it perfect for those with aggravated or acne prone skin. Due to its purifying properties, Pink Clay is often used in face masks, treatments and soaps to help cleanse and refresh dull, tired and dry skin.
