Clay; mud; sand; soil; dirt. All words that can be used interchangeably but certainly not a collective use of words one would think to use when talking about skincare. However, L’Oreal skincare is why you find yourself reading this and clay is our topic of discussion. So the main question I find women tend to ask is why use a face mask? Whereas my question is WHY CLAY?
So why use a face mask? Well firstly not all of us can be visiting the spa every week, that’s for sure, so to be able to gain spa benefits like a facial in your own bathroom seems a good deal, no? I can safely say that would be reason enough for me but if you’d like some real benefits of a face mask, and a clay one at that, here they are:
ALL for one and one for all, clay masks benefit all skin types. So cast away the hunt for the perfect mask to suit your oily or dry or combination skin if you have no time. No doubt clay masks are suited more for oily skin but the great thing about L’Oreal’s Pure Clay Mask Range is that they all have different individual benefits but are still suitable on any skin type – win win!
Each day our skin takes a daily beating from pollution, dirt and oil which can leave your skin feeling rough and especially in my case makes those dreaded pores seem larger. GREAT! Using a clay mask can help draw out a multitude of these impurities. The L’OrealPure Clay Exfoliate and Refining Clay Mask will really make a difference as it tightens the appearance of pores and exfoliates dead skin cells from the skins surface.
Mattifying and Brightening! As mentioned above clay masks are really helpful when it comes to mattifying the skin. So if you really do struggle with oily skin a clay mask could soon become your best friend. Once Summer hits my combination skin definitely starts to bend towards being more oily from sweating etc. I tried theL’OrealPure Clay Purify and Mattify Face Mask and I loved it because I honestly noticed a difference.
