Fall Skincare: SkinCeuticals Clarifying Clay Masque

11 Oct

SkinCeuticals Clay Masque

Hi beauties!

After an amazing September in Vancouver, it’s finally starting to look like fall. 🍂🍂🍂

Since the cooler weather means turning on indoor heat, I’ve been checking out some masks to help prevent irritation and dryness in my combination skin.

One thing I’ve figured out is that clay masks are a good choice for fall skincare since they contain bentonite. Bentonite clay, which is formed from volcanic ash, benefits skin by helping to remove toxins and reduce inflammation.

SkinCeuticals Clarifying Clay Masque combines bentonite and kaolin (another natural clay) to help calm the skin.

Even though the the clay in the mask decongests the skin and lifts impurities, I find it to be non-drying. It’s probably due to the rich, velvety texture of the masque which makes my skin feel soft and smooth whenever I use it.

Tips for Using Clay Masks

Here are some general tips to help make clay masks more effective.

  1. Use a brush to apply the mask to ensure it’s applied evenly and to avoid bacteria from your fingers.
  2. Apply the mask to spot areas, if you want to focus on certain parts of your face.
  3. To help remove the mask once it dries, apply a warm, damp cloth to your face to hydrate and loosen the mask from your skin.
  4. Use a clay mask 1-2 times a week to help restore and maintain a fresh complexion.
