Green clay is recommended for the care of oily, acne-prone and combination skin prone to acne, blackheads and pimples. Clay belongs to the group of clay minerals formed as a result of erosion of various crystalline rocks. It contains a number of elements that are of great importance for the proper functioning of the skin, including iron, silicon, magnesium, manganese and copper.
Iron compounds participate in the production of collagen in skin tissue and accelerate the regeneration of damaged cells.
Silicon helps to normalize the secretion of sebum by the sebaceous glands and accelerates the healing of minor wounds.
Magnesium reduces the susceptibility to allergies and slows the formation of inflammation.
Manganese reduces the effects of free radicals and slows down the aging process of the skin.
Copper regulates the secretion of sebum by the sebaceous glands.
Clay masks are antiseptic and soothe skin irritations caused by bacteria. The skin becomes smoother and better moisturized. Some wrinkles are reduced. The skin is dull.
How to use:
Clay is in the form of a very fine powder. A small amount of it should be thoroughly mixed with lukewarm water. Instead of water, you can use a hydrolate that provides the skin with additional nutrients. You can also add a few drops of natural oil (almond, coconut, Inca Inchi or other) to the ground clay. Apply the prepared mush
on the face, neck and décolleté or other acne or blemish areas and let it dry completely for at least 15 minutes. Attention! In case the mask dries faster, it should be slightly moistened with a damp sponge or cloth. After this period, rinse the mask with lukewarm water. In the case of oily or combination skin, you can perform a gentle peeling massage before washing off the mask.
