What are 5 amazing skin benefits
of using a Bentonite Clay Face Mask?
Here they are:
- Draws out toxins –
As mentioned earlier, a Bentonite Clay mask will help draw out toxins through the skin.
The electrical charge produced by wet Bentonite clay is made up of negative ions that attract the
positive ions in toxins and heavy metals, binding these toxins to it.
Some to the toxins a Bentonite clay mask can draw out include plutonium and radioactive uranium
and the heavy metals include lead and mercury.
Toxins may cause premature ageing.
- Opens up clogged skin pores –
Skin sometimes gets clogged by sebum, the oil that is naturally produced by the skin to keep it moisturised or prevent it from being too dry.
Excess sebum production is the major cause of acne.
When excess sebum is produced, it gets trapped in the pores of the skin creating a conducive environment for bacteria to thrive.
The bacteria causes inflammation which results in pimples and blackheads.
A Bentonite clay mask will draw excess sebum from the skin.
- Tones and tightens the skin –
Bentonite has astringent properties so it has the ability to shrink body tissues.
This is particularly useful in dealing with enlarged pores.
Enlarged pores are caused by the accumulation of oil and dirt in the skin, age (due to loss of skin elasticity) and sun damage.
The skin mask will reduce the appearance of enlarged pores making skin seem younger.
- Reduces blemishes –
There are different types of skin blemishes which include skin discoloration, blackheads, uneven skin tone and age spots.
Bentonite clay’s astringent and skin unclogging properties are the reasons why this clay mask can reduce blemishes.
- Exfoliates the skin –
Exfoliating skin helps it long young and more vibrant. This is because exfoliation removes dead skin cells which may cause pores to get clogged.
Clogged pores may cause acne and skin blemishes.
Skin exfoliation also reveals healthier looking skin as it encourages the renewal of skin cells.
