Dealing with Oily or Dull-looking Skin? Opt For Clay Masks!

Let's face the truth - clay masks are the unsung heroes of our skincare routines. While they often hide in the shadows of flashier LED masks and Instagram-worthy sheet masks, there's no denying that these formulas work - especially if you have combination or oily skin. Curious to know more? Read on to learn about why these type of masks are an essential in your routine.

Benefits of using a clay mask

Regulates oil production

If there's one thing that clay masks are known for, it's for their ability to soak up any excess sebum. If you have oily skin, you will notice that your face will be mattified and fresh after washing off your mask. With regular use, you can expect a more balanced and healthier complexion.

Purifies the skin

Our skin is exposed to so much throughout the day, be it dirt, pollution or residue from our sunscreens and foundations. Clay masks draw out such impurities and gently exfoliate the skin to ensure that your dead skin cells don't remain trapped in your pores.

Brightens up your face

By preventing the build-up of dead skin cells, clay-based formulas help revive a dull and uneven complexion. If radiance is your main aim, you should definitely check out the Mon Cherry Brightening Pink Clay Mask. Apart from sloughing off dead and dry skin, this creamy formula imparts a dewy glow, thanks to the inclusion of grapefruit extract, which is rich in vitamin C!

Refines your pores

Large pores and oily skin go hand-in-hand. When your skin has an overload of sebum, your pores stretch out to accommodate the excess, thus making them more noticeable. Luckily, by sopping up oil, clay mask also works to minimize the appearance of your pores. Use one before you apply your makeup to get a smooth and even base.

Tackles blackheads and acne

If you are tired of blackheads cropping up on your nose or pesky zits that won't go down, turn to a clay mask. These formulas provide a deep cleanse and decongest your pores to leave you with clearer skin.

Which clay mask is right for you?

If you have skin that turns into a greaseball by noon or are plagued with blemishes, opt for a detoxifying formula like the Bravocado Deep Cleansing Clay Mask. The powerful duo of kaolin and bentonite clay, coupled with the goodness of avocado, pomegranate and rice water, act quickly to unclog your pores, absorb oil and reduce the appearance of your pores.For combination skin i.e. skin that is oily in some parts and dry in others, look for a clay mask with moisturizing ingredients. Our Mon Cherry Brightening Pink Clay Mask features kaolin and bentonite, but is also infused with glycerin, cherry blossom and pearl extracts. Incorporating this one into your routine will leave you with a soft, smooth and luminous complexion.

How to use a clay mask correctly

Clay masks often get a bad rap because they are used incorrectly. For best results, spread a generous layer evenly across your clean and dry skin. Leave it on for no longer than 15 minutes - if you exceed this time limit, you risk the chance of stripping your skin dry. Then, use warm water to gently rinse it off your face. Follow up with a moisturizer and enjoy your soft, supple skin. You can use these masks up to twice a week or whenever you have a special occasion coming up!
