Here at MenScience, we care about helping you get and maintain great skin, so we've decided to help you demystify face masks. Read on to find out how clay face masks are one of easier to use and more valuable products you should invest in.
Purging the Bad
A clay face mask will help you remove any dirt that blocks your pores. Clay works by absorbing the dirt and sweat that’s embedded in your skin. You can say goodbye to excess oil your skin produces, especially around your lower forehead and nose area. It also helps to remove blackheads. Clay masks even help to lighten up your scars, spots and blemishes from acne.
Snagging the Good
Not only does a clay mask help you get rid of the bad stuff, there's plenty of good stuff it provides too! It helps nurture and condition your skin so it’s noticeably softer and smoother. It’s like pushing a reset button for your skin. Active antioxidants aid in the generation of new cells by kick-starting the healing process for your skin.
If you want to get the best out your clay mask, with eye-catching results from the first time you use it, you should follow these simple rules:
1. Begin by exfoliating: Start off with a face scrub that contains glycolic acid. It helps prepare your skin before you apply the mask by removing dead skin cells that could prevent proper absorption.
2. Avoid your eyes: Skin around the eyes is extremely delicate. Plus, there really aren't as many oil producing glands in that area. There's really no reason to use the mask around it.
3. Don't overindulge: It is best to know when to stop. Using it more than 2 or 3 times a week can dry out your skin.
4. Moisturize: Some clay masks can strip moisture from your skin. Be sure to use a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid to avoid dry-looking skin.
Your New Best Friend
With its refreshing natural scent, a facemask is just what you need to rejuvenate your skin and feel great about it. Application can be smooth and easy. In just five to ten minutes, you can do something that will substantially improve the quality of your skin. With regular use, a clay mask can definitely become one of your go-to products!
