Adding a facial mask to your beauty regime is a great way to achieving glowing clean and healthy looking skin. But, when you have oily skin, it can be difficult to select the right facial mask. You need a mask that will not add oils to the skin, and will not cause breakouts. It’s important to understand the ingredients and the way they work to select the proper facial mask for your skin.
Most clay facial masks contain ingredients that are meant to reach deep into pores and draw out the impurities. Clay masks also increase skin cell production, boost collagen production and can even help to fade discolorations.
Whether you choose a clay mask that is made with natural clays, or one that contains chemical clays, make sure to ready the packaging to determine if the product is formulated for oily skin.
One of the most common used clays is Kaolin, which is sometimes called China clay. This clay contains iron, silica, magnesium, and zinc; ingredients known to effectively remove impurities deep in the pores.
Natural clay masks also add ingredients like mint, lemon and other fruit extracts to stimulate cell growth and increase circulation of the skin.
Here are a few products that we think are among the best clay facial masks:
