5 Benefits of Quality Clay Facial Masks
Facial masks with a couple of slices of cucumber on your eyes are a symbol of pampering in skin care, but masks do a lot more than just relax your skin tissues.
As with any product in skin care, there are vast amounts of facial masks on the market, each targeting specific need you may have. A recent addition to facial masks are sheet masks which are very convenient way to apply some hydration or nourishment to your skin.
Today, I would like to talk about the five benefits provided by “classical” face mask derived mostly from earth clay materials which had been used for centuries around the globe by different cultures. Most of those clay materials are mined in mineral rich deposits and vary in colour and composition. Top quality face masks use clays that were deposited from glaciers into the oceans and thus enriched by valuable sea minerals over hundreds of years. Below are five specific benefits of using this type of a clay mask.
1. Deep Cleansing
Face masks most beneficial property is deep cleansing. By the means of osmotic pressure, mineral rich masks will draw out impurities from deep within the skin tissues. Cleansing these skin tissues are valuable as when they are freed from the burden of impurities, they are able to function more efficiently.
2. Skin Hydration
Face masks will add much needed hydration to the deep levels of your skin’s tissues. This additional moisture delivered inside your skin is mineral rich which will enhance biochemical processes within the skin cell as minerals play vital role in this process. Hydrating masks are the key to beating dry skin, especially during the winter or after too much sun exposure.
3. Cleanse Pores
Face masks will assist to cleanse pores to achieve clearer skin and more defined pores. It will help to exfoliate dead skin tissue and get rid of metabolic waste and oily substances that clog them. Clay masks are a great aid to people suffering from congested or acne issues.
4. Reduce Signs of Aging
Regular use of face masks can help reduce signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots and enlarged pores. Also you will benefit from a softer and smoother skin texture as it will provide higher oxygen content to the skin, giving your skin an more even skin tone.
5. Stress Relief
Yes, face masks are inherently relaxing and give you a bit of time to smell the roses so to say. Any tool that lessens the stress levels of daily hustle are valuable and priceless.
Now lets get muddy, put on a clay mask and give your skin some love!
