Homemade Clay Facial Mask Beauty Treatment

Clays come in many different colors like black, brown, green, red, white and yellow that come from all over the world. Each one has a different type of treatment for your skin. They will all combine beautifully with essential oils. The clay and oil have a synergistic effect upon each other that will give your skin beautiful results.

The most common clays are Fuller's Earth, Green Clay and White Kaolin which you can find in most health stores and pharmacies.

Fuller's Earth is very stimulating clay and has a marked effect on the epidermis. This is a brown clay and a cleansing clay that also has a desquamation action on the skin. It removes dead skin cells and can be used on oily to normal textured skin only.

Green Clay can be used on all skin types that have different types of skin conditions and this is the finest of the clays. Green Clay is good for treating acne and disturbed skin. This has an anti-aging effect on mature skin. You can use this to balance combination skin, to normalize oily skin and to rejuvenate dry skin.

Green Clay is rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium and it energizes the connective tissue. This clay leaves the skin silky smooth because it is an antiseptic that promotes treating in the skin. It also stimulates the skin gently and is effective in increasing the lymph flow and circulation which enables oxygen to speed up the elimination of waste products from your skin.



White Kaolin is best used on normal to oily skins because they have an astringent effect and removes impurities from your skin while at the same time it cleanses, improves lymphatic flow and increases blood circulation to the area.
