And which one is best for your skin type?
Nestled amongst each of our crystal infused beauty ranges, we have intentionally crafted a few skin loving clay masks. Using a natural clay as a face mask is an excellent way to gently draw toxins from deep within the pores and remineralise the skin.
We specifically work with three of the least dehydrating clays, as they don’t draw moisture from the skin but rather nourish with minerals and leave the skin soft and clean.
Each of the three clays, White (Kaolinite) Clay, Australian Yellow Clay and Australian Pink Clay are comprised of a slightly different mineral makeup, meaning they serve different purposes when applied to the skin.
White Kaolinite Clay
For Sensitive, Dry Skin
White Kaolinite Clay is a very gentle clay made up of the Kaolinite mineral, and unlike many other clays does not draw moisture out of the skin, making it an excellent option for dry and sensitive skin types.
White Clay is a great exfoliant, as it gently removes dead & dry skin cells to draw out dirt, oil and other impurities from within the pores and stimulate cell turnover. As a result, a white clay face mask treatment leaves the face visibly clearer, reduces the visibility of pores and evens out skin tone, making it a perfect ritual before applying makeup, resulting in a flawless complexion.
This clay is the base of our Moonstone Clay mask, which comes supercharged with the essential oils of Patchouli, Ylang Ylang, Clary Sage & Rosewood which help to reduce skin inflammation, balance moisture of the skin and promote glowing skin. Making this mask perfect for most skin types, but especially dry constitutions.
Australian Yellow Clay
For Tired or Combination Skin
This mild clay is given its comprised of natural minerals and given a slight yellow pigment from iron oxides. It is a great skin exfoliant and works to draw toxins out from the pores, as well as balance the skins oil secretion for softer, more toned complexion.
Australian Yellow Clay is excellent at refreshing, tired or dull skin. It helps to stimulate circulation and turnover within the cells, thus promoting blood flow and oxygen to the skin. It’s high mineral content also the skin with a boost of nourishment leaving it toned and visibly brighter.
A great option for most skin types, but especially those with combination or tired skin types.
Our Citrine Clay Mask is crafted with a base of Australian Yellow Clay and given extra potency with the addition of Sweet Orange, Lemon and Sandalwood Essential Oils and Citrine Crystal Essence
Australian Pink Clay
Stressed, Irritated and Oily Skin
This beautiful soft pink Australian clay is an excellent for nourishing signs of stress and soothing irritation. It’s mineral rich composition helps to regenerate the skin for greater collagen production, whilst also soothing irritation and redness.
Pink Clay is also great for exfoliating toxins and rebalancing the skins oil production, imparting a clean skin tone and reducing the appearance of fine lines and pigmentation.
Australian Pink Clay is the feature of our Rose Quartz Clay Mask, to which we’ve added our own personal touch with a beautiful blend of essential oils including Rosewood, Peru Balsam, Mandarin and Patchouli and the essence of the rose quartz crystal.
How to Create a Face Mask
Take a teaspoon of Clay and mix with your liquid of choice to create a paste. Your liquid could be purified water, floral water, honey, natural yoghurt or a gentle skin oil.
Apply a thin layer of the paste to your face, avoiding the eyes or going to close to the hairline.
Allow to dry for 5 – 10 minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water.
During this 5 – 10 minutes, you may choose to take a little time for yourself and enhance the energetics of the crystal infusion. If your mask of choice is the Rose Quartz Clay, why not try a heart cleansing ritual, or a gentle yoga flow.
We encourage you to get creative with your clay mask and use it on other areas of the body or as a hair mask whilst or before you get in the shower.
