The Top Benefits of Using a Clay Face Mask
Rebecca of #BeNaturally.fit is one of our favourite “kick ass” women as she shares a wealth of interesting fitness routines, healthy recipes and natural healthy living advice through her online community. She is a mother with two daughters and here we see them enjoying our Glacial Clay Face Mask during a girls night in, at the home spa.
Rebecca and her family are very careful of what they put in their bodies and on their skin. That is why they choose Nayelle for their clay face mask routine.
A clay face mask can have all kinds of benefits for your skin. We want to share the top benefits of using a clay face mask with you today!
Unclog Pores – Clay masks are an incredible remedy for oily and acne prone skin. A clay mask works kind of like an adhesive for dirt and oil. After application of a clay mask, you will feel your face tighten as the clay dries. As the clay dries it “soaks” up the skins natural oils and anything clogging the pores and draws it to the surface. Once you wash the mask off, you will feel an invigorating deep clean feeling.
Detoxify the Skin – Clay has incredible, natural detoxification properties. It has a strong negative electrical charge, which binds to negatively charged toxins and pulls them from the skin when used a topical mask.
Oxygenate Cells – Clay helps to remove hydrogen from the skin cells. This allows more room for oxygen to enter your skin’s tissue. This creates improved circulation, rejuvenation of cells and overall healthier skin.
Shrink Pores – Minimizing the appearance of pores is often a goal for many people seeking beautiful looking skin. However, having smaller pores is not just a goal of vanity. Smaller pores are typical the result of healthier skin. Pores generally become enlarged when they are clogged with excess sebum, bacteria and dirt.
Regulate Sebum Production – Our skin naturally produces an oil called “sebum” to protect and moisturize it. When our immune systems are over activated, be it from an infection, autoimmunity, stress or toxic overload, the skin can overproduce sebum. The result can be acne, blackheads, whiteheads, oily skin and blemishes. While treating the root cause of sebum imbalances is an internal job accomplished via diet and lifestyle, clay masks are an incredible remedy for oily and acne prone skin. A clay mask can “soak” up excess sebum and clean out any clogged pores from the resulting excess oil. Be sure to use Nayelle’s REJUVENATE or HYDRATE moisturizing creams with their healthy fatty acids to restore some oil to the skins surface after washing off the face mask. This way the skin will not overproduce sebum after the mask comes off.
Softer Smooth Glowing Skin – Clay is loaded with a very important beautifying nutrient known as silica. This trace mineral is one of the most abundant minerals in the body; however, most people do not get enough in their diet today. It is responsible for manufacturing connective tissue such as the muscle, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, collagen, skin and bone. When silica is abundant in the body, it supports healthy, strong connective tissues and it also happens to make your skin very soft and smooth.
Anti-Bacterial – Hydrated clay binds with not just toxins but also harmful bacteria and pathogens. When hydrated clay is applied to the skin and left to dry, as in the case of a clay mask, it binds to bacteria on the surface of the skin and deep in the pores. It brings the dried up bacteria to the surface of the skin to then by washed away. This act reduces the overpopulation of pathogenic bacteria to friendly microflora, which is responsible for bacterial skin problems and acne. Clay masks work as a natural anti-biotic that can heal skin infections and even remedy issues like eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. It is even more effective than most antibiotics, as it will not entirely wipe out the colonies of friendly bacteria that promote healthy skin immunity.

When the clay is applied to the skin, the impurities, which are positively charged, get bound to the clay’s powerful negative charge much like a magnet and ultimately get rinsed away with the removal of the clay. The clay also uses its osmotic strength to pull moisture up from deep inner tissues to hydrate the skin. Unlike other cleansing agents, this oceanic clay deeply cleans the skin without drying it. Instead it deeply hydrates it making it a perfect pre special occasion mask.
