Why clay face masks are good for your skin

Clay face masks have lots of great benefits for your skin including:

  • Drawing out impurities from your pores without clogging them
  • Clarifies and evens skin tone
  • Balances out oils on the surface of the skin
  • Softens skin naturally

If you'd like to get even more skincare benefits from your mask why not customise it according to your skin's needs.

So what can you add to a clay mask...?

Well, arguably just about anything! But to guide you we've created some clay mask recipes for you to follow at home.

We do recommend using a clay mask that's been formulated by a skincare expert as clay can be problematic for some skin types so it's important to get your mix just right. 

Read on for some natural face masks using Casa Mencarelli's Green Clay & Sicilian Lemon Face Mask. Casa Mencarelli is a British skincare brand whose products are all certified organic and suitable for even the most sensitive skin types.

  3. Relax. Remove after 10 minutes using a wet organic cotton face cloth

And there you have it, it's that simple to tailor one product to your skincare needs. For some extra skin hydration you can also blend the clay mask with their Honey Toner or Sea Buckthorn Serum
