Pollution and tobacco are just some of the ways our skin can be suffocated. They break down the skin’s collagen and cause breakouts and irritation, leaving the skin looking dull and dehydrated. The bad particles collect on the skin’s surface and clog the pores, an annoyance to us all, I am sure.
This week’s current obsession is the L’Oreal Paris Pure-Clay Detox Mask. There’s a reason mud masks have been around for a considerable length of time. The earthy ingredients are vitamin and mineral-rich and offer a mostly natural solution to clogged pores. The clay mask contains a powerful combination of three types of clay, including kaolin, montmorillonite, and ghassoul, as well as charcoal.
Together these natural ingredients absorb impurities, help eliminate imperfections and smooth out the skin’s complexion. Researchers have found that charcoal is an indisputable detoxifier, able to trap toxins and bacteria. The power and benefits of charcoal are excellent. It draws out impurities and leaves your skin feeling smooth and looking fresh. In my opinion, charcoal is a real game-changer and has tremendous health benefits.
So if you’re looking for an affordable and easy-to-use clay mask, I recommend L’Oreal Paris Pure-Clay Detox Mask. You can use it again and again. I typically apply it once a week. How to use: Apply a thin layer to clean skin, obviously avoiding eyes and mouth. Leave to dry for 10 minutes and watch as the clay and charcoal dry and draw out the impurities. Remove with a wet face cloth and warm water.
Note: According to some reviews, this specific pure-clay detox mask might not be beneficial to those with combination skin. It can leave the skin feeling dry.
