Clay Powders for Beauty

Clay powders have been used for centuries due to their amazing properties. They are used to remineralize, clean, detoxify and regenerate the body inside out. Clay powder can also be used for washing and nourishing the hair. When mixed with water, they become an instant mud that can be applied to the face as a beauty masque for healthier, younger looking and firmer skin.

Clay powders come in different forms including French green, bentonite, white kaolin, rose clay, sea clay and dead sea clay; to name a few. French green and bentonite are the most popular types. The clays are meant for different types of skins. For example white kaolin clays are recommended for sensitive to normal skin to get rid of redness and restore moisture to dry skin types.

The above clays can be mixed to make a unique facial masque. Seaweed powder can also be added to the mask for additional moisturizing.
