If you dabble in DIY beauty and face masks, you've probably used clay before – an ultra powerful and natural ingredient that purges the skin of impurities, detoxifies, and regulates sebum. Clay masks are life-savers, especially for those with oily, acne prone skin, but what about those with sensitive and dry skin? Unfortunately, regular clay (such as Bentonite, green clay, and Kaolin) can do a number on dry skin, and this is where rose clay comes in! Rose clay benefits are abundant and is the perfect and only clay you should use if you have dry skin!
Rose Clay Benefits
Did you know that rose clay is actually just a milder form of Kaolin clay. It removes impurities and draws out toxins just like all the other clays, but it also doesn't dry the skin out! Let's take a look at some of the rose clay benefits!
- Keeps skin hydrated
- Doesn't dry out skin
- Tightens pores
- Increases circulation
- Encourages new cell growth
- Prevents wrinkles and fine lines
- Reduces inflammation and irritation
- Purges impurities
As you can see, rose clay has a slew of benefits that will leave your skin super soft and detoxifies. Perfect for those will all skin types, rose clay is easy to make into a mask!
DIY Rose Clay Face Mask:
- 1 tbsp rose clay
- 1/2 tbsp rosewater, aloe vera gel, or just regular water (any type of water-based ingredient will work). Find out how to make your own rosewater.
- Mix the two together until it forms a paste.
- Apply to clean skin and leave on for 10 minutes.
- If you have extra dry or sensitive skin, do not let the mask fully dry, but remove it while still wet. This is because once clay hardens, (even though it is a milder clay than most), it can leave skin dry and flaky.
- Rinse off with cool water and pat dry.
- Follow up with a moisturizer.
Depending on the type of skin you have, you can use this mask 1-3 times a week:
Oily/Acne Prone Skin: Mask can be used up to three times a week.
Oily Skin: Mask can be used twice a week.
Dry/Sensitive Skin: Use only once a week.
