Benefits of Clay Mask

Clay has a long history of skincare. As early as the Mesopotamian era, this remarkable ingredient was used to heal wounds, soothe inflammation, and cleanse the skin. Ancient Egyptians combined clay with olive oil to brew skin-softening soaps. Cleopatra is known to have applied a dead sea clay mask twice a week to purify her complexion.

Νowadays, masks with clay offer a wide range of skin benefits, including removing impurities and reducing the appearance of large pores. One clay mask benefit we love is clay’s ability to tone up our pores and refine them. The result? Smoother, softer texture and more even skin tone. Clay masks can also help boost blood circulation beneath our skin, and oxygen circulation to our skin cells. This helps our skin heal and regenerate, improves collagen production, and gives it a brighter, more youthful appearance.
