While pre-made masks are fast and easy to use powdered clay masks only take a few minutes to mix and are more effective than pre-mixed options. Here’s what you need to know.
No Chemical Additives
Powdered masks are mostly a mix of one or two types of clay, and maybe a few soothing and healing herbs. Unlike premixed masks, even ones that contain clay, there is are no chemical preservatives, dyes, or perfumes.
Mix To Meet Your Needs
Powdered clay can be mixed with water, ACV, organic fruit juice, honey, milk, essential oils, and more. This means that you can create a mask that caters to your individual needs. Just don’t use metal in the mixing process as it has a chemical reaction to the clay.
Clay masks deliver instant results. Apply a thin layer and let it dry for 15 to 20 minutes, longer and you may irritate your skin. Your mask will extract oil and impurities, leaving your skin tighter, smoother, and your pores temporarily smaller. Just be sure to gently exfoliate before and moisturize after. You could even follow up with a K-Beauty serum mask.
Clay is a gentle purifier that is perfect for all skin types even for sensitive skin. It can be used for general cleansing, acne, antiaging, eczema, psoriasis, and to soothe irritated skin.
