The Extraordinary Cleansing Power Of Green Clay

The highly valued green clay is known to treat a number of ailments. It's been slowly creeping back into the limelight. Here's why a humble mud, which is dried to make a powder, has once again taken the beauty world by storm. Green clay can be dissolved in water and consumed (you'll find it in specialist shops) or applied externally in cosmetics - purifying face masks being the most popular choice.

A turbo-charged skin-friendly detox

Green clay is used to deeply purify the skin. When applied as a mask, it draws out impurities (just like a magnet), without drying out the skin. In fact, it does quite the opposite. Whilst it sucks up grime, sebum, and makeup, it also pumps your skin with beneficial minerals. It is packed with silica, aluminium, calcium, iron, magnesium, selenium, zinc, and potassium. It softens, hydrates, and revitalises skin whilst giving it a thorough cleanse. It combats ageing and re-oxygenates your skin.


How green clay helps our faces

Apply a green clay mask (paying attention to the troublesome T-zone, but avoiding the eyes) leave it to work for several minutes and then rinse off and dry your face. Your skin will be freed of impurities. You will have clean, smooth, and glowing skin. And once your skin can breathe, it'll be adequately oxygenated. If you suffer from pimples/black heads or live/work in a highly polluted area, then applying a green clay face mask several times a week will do your skin a purifying world of good.

The L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Mask with Charcoal harnesses the power of this powerful green clay to clarify and purify the skin. The Montmorillonite Clay in the Pure Clay Mask is infused with natural Charcoal Actives to act like a magnet and draw out impurities, environmental toxins and dirt from the skin. To use, apply the Pure Clay mask to clean skin and leave on for 10 minutes before rinsing with warm water. Use 2-3 times a week for best results.
