Clay face masks have been used for centuries, across the world, as part of skincare routines. A clay face mask can assist with many skin challenges. They can restore skin balance thereby protecting against future breakouts and stimulating the regeneration of new cells. They are also great at hydrating, moisturizing, soothing inflammation and many have antioxidant properties. This means that the right clay face mask can boost your facial skin’s health and result in you looking more youthful.
Choosing the clay face mask that will work for you, starts with understanding the ingredients in them and their unique benefits. Aloe Unique has three new clay face masks. All are designed for specific purposes and derived from ingredients that have been selected for the benefit of your skin.
Three great clay masks and why you want to use them
Formulated with Uniclay, a biotech ingredient, these three masks are environmentally friendly, safe to use, and focus on wellness-driven beauty. While each mask will assist your skin in being healthier, the three clay masks each have their own purpose.
Aloe Unique masks come in two parts, powder and liquid, which are mixed together just before use. This prevents your mask paste from drying out ahead of time. It also allows you to only mix how much you need, thereby preventing wastage. The liquid is formulated to maximize the specific purpose of each mask and augment the powder’s intrinsic properties.
Powder Contains: Red Clay, Kaolin Clay, Collagen
Liquid Contains: Aloe Ferox, Rooibos
Why these Ingredients?
Rich in iron oxide, Red Clay assists in refreshing the skin while softening and toning it. Kaolin Clay gently exfoliates while cleansing, without dehydrating face cells. To reduce visible wrinkles, improve skin elasticity, as well as blood flow, Aloe Unique Anti-Aging clay face masks contain Collagen. This mask contains Aloe Ferox, which maximises hydration, stimulates and accelerates skin repair as well as healing. To further nurture and boost healing processes, Rooibos is part of the mask’s liquid component. Rooibos is a natural soother and reducer of irritation and redness. The combination of these ingredients also helps to create a more even skin tone and assists in the treatment of other skin conditions.
Powder Contains: Green Clay, Bentonite Clay, Kaolin Clay
Liquid Contains: Aloe Ferox, Witch Hazel
Why these Ingredients?
Green clay stimulates circulation and assists with healing blemishes, as well as toning and firming skin. Additionally, it assists in drawing out grime from pores. Bentonite Clay boosts the healing properties of green clay. It treats wounds and skin allergies. Furthermore, it assists with regulating natural oil secretion by the sebaceous glands, thereby helping to address acne issues. Kaolin Clay assists with absorbing excess skin oils, smoothing skin, and gently exfoliating it to cleanse pores. In order to ensure your skin stays hydrated and moisturized, Aloe Ferox is part of this mask’s liquid. Aloe Ferox has the added advantage of stimulating faster, better skin healing and repair while also improving elasticity and firmness. Non-alcohol-based Witch-Hazel extract helps to reduce inflammation, while simultaneously being an effective aid in preventing infections due to its natural bacteriostatic properties and antiviral action.
Powder Contains: Ghassoul Clay, Kaolin Clay
Liquid Contains: Aloe Ferox, Niacinamide
Why these Ingredients?
Ghassoul Clay is a clay naturally high in vitamins, minerals, and trace elements. These properties enable it to actively detox your skin, while it gently exfoliates and cleanses. Its properties are augmented by the inclusion of Kaolin Clay within the powder. Kaolin Clay is an excellent pore cleanser, with the advantage of removing excess oils but not drying the skin out. To assist with faster stimulation of cellular repair and healing, the Aloe Unique Moroccan Lava Clay face mask contains Aloe Ferox. Niacinamide forms part of the liquid, it reduces inflammation of skin conditions, like eczema, and minimizes pore appearance. Additionally, it assists with boosting hydration and helping skin grow barriers. Skin barriers lock in moisture, which gives your skin a healthy more youthful sheen.
How to Use a Clay Face Mask
- Cleanse: Start your skincare routine, as usual, washing your face with lukewarm water
and your usual cleanser then patting it dry.
- Mix it: Using a clean dish mix the powder with the liquid provided to make a paste.
The paste should be thin enough to spread evenly without dripping off your face but not too thick to prevent it from drying.
- Apply: Evenly spread the mask across your face, avoiding your eyelid and lip areas.
- Relax: Allow the mask to dry. This will take about 10 to 15 minutes depending on how thick the paste is.
- Rinse: Wash the mask off using lukewarm water and if need be, a washcloth or cotton pads.
Then pat dry and apply your toner and moisturizer.
