Using high quality skincare products to rejuvenate the skin is vitally important in order to take good care of your skin. They can make a world of a difference in shielding it from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun, protecting it from the environment and its pollutants, as well as providing it with the nutrients and minerals it needs to thrive.
Let’s put the spotlight on the Clarifying Clay Masque from SkinCeuticals. It is a non-drying masque that uses the highest quality clays from the Earth like Bentonite and Kaolin clays to decongest and lift accumulated impurities from clogged pores. There is also the addition of botanicals and minerals to aid the skin in healing and calming. A 5% hydroxy acid blend exfoliates the skin gently, as opposed to using harsh beads that only scratch and harm the skin. This masque also uses zinc to help skin to heal, chamomile to calm and soothe, and aloe vera for its famous anti-inflammatory properties.
Bentonite is an amazing clay that is formed from volcanic ash that has aged over time in the presence of water. What is special about bentonite clay is its negative electromagnetic charge, acting like a magnet to pull toxins and impurities away from the skin when activated by water. An important tip when using bentonite clay is to never mix it with a metal spoon, as it pulls toxins from metals.
Kaolin clay, on the other hand, is naturally found in soils that have formed from the weathering and breaking down of rocks in warm and humid climates. It is a milder clay that helps to improve blood circulation, reduces oil production for a matte finish, and also acts as a very gentle cleanser.
Zinc is a trace mineral that is especially important for clear, acne free skin. It is essential to cell growth and in terms of skin, assists in the repair of damaged skin.
As for alpha hydroxy acid – it is a natural acid and can come in the form of citric acid, which is found in citrus foods. The main types you may have seen in skin products are citric acid, glycolic acid which is found in sugar cane, and lactic acid which is found in milk products.
As you may know, chamomile is one of the most wonderful and powerful natural herbs that calms and soothes the skin. It is used for a variety of skin ailments such as eczema, as well as skin irritations and burns.
