What Is the Right Clay for Your Skin Type?

Clay is one of the most cleansing and detoxifying ingredients you can use on your skin. Rich in minerals, the benefits of clay for skin in helping to clear blemishes, draw out impurities and leave you with a brighter complexion, are unrivalled.

There are many different types of clay: from Pink and White (Kaolin), to French Green and Red. All of them are to be used when your skin needs a detox, as it is a very purifying ingredient.

How to Identify the Right Clay for Your Skin Type?

These different types of clay contain varying levels of minerals, and therefore work better on different skin types. Using the right one for your needs will ensure you end up with a gorgeous and healthy complexion without any side effects.

Normal Skin

If you have normal skin, you want to make sure your skin remains balanced and well hydrated after treatment, so you need to use a clay that won’t strip your skin of moisture.

White Clay and Ivory Clay are ones of the mildest clays available, as they gently cleanse the skin without removing too much oil and causing sensitivity to the skin. Their mild exfoliant properties help to remove dead skin cells and impurities from the skin, reducing blemishes and imperfections.

For a gentle cleanse you can surely try Australian Pure White Clay Facial Mask or Australian Pure Ivory Clay Facial Mask from BRUL HERBALS as the they help to remove surface impurities without disrupting the natural balance of your skin. The natural and organic ingredients will also nourish without causing irritation. For a more intensive treatment option, you can take a look at our Hydrating Facial Mask which contains White Clay to cleanse and soothe, so your complexion is left feeling purified yet hydrated.


Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin can be one of the hardest skin types to work with due to the fact that most ingredients can cause some degree of irritation. The main feature for a clay in this case should be gently cleansing without drawing out too many impurities so that your skin remains soothed.

Pink Clay is an ideal clay to use if you have sensitive skin as it has mild exfoliating properties, which is great for clearing your skin without harsh and abrasive ingredients. It doesn’t absorb a lot of oil from the skin, so still leaves you with a hydrated complexion, while still removing toxins at the same time.

For a gentle mask that will leave your skin feeling bright and refreshed try Australian Pure Pink Clay Facial Mask from BRUL HERBALS. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, it will softly detoxify and soothe your sensitive skin. Also, the great option will be our Clarifying Facial Mask, which along with Pink Clay, contains Australian Pure Ivory Clay, Rose Petals and Hibiscus for extra nourishment and toning your skin.

Oily Skin

If you have oily skin, clay-based skincare is brilliant at removing excess oil and leaving you with a matte and healthy complexion. If you have oilier skin, you may also suffer from blemishes, which clay can also help to dry out and heal.

Green Clay is brilliant for oily skin types as it works much better at absorbing excess oil than more gentle based ones. It helps to clear out clogged pores, eliminating blackheads, whiteheads and acne thanks to its purifying properties that draw out impurities and toxins.

For an everyday treatment, try the Australian Pure Green Clay Facial Mask from BRUL HERBALS, which can be used daily on the skin and doesn’t require extra cleansing products to work. It helps to promote healthy skin by absorbing bacteria and excess oil to leave your skin clean and refreshed. For a more intensive treatment, try Detoxifying Facial Mask, which helps to reduce excess sebum on the skin, and using a blend of Green Tea and Lavender, purifies the skin and keeps it hydrated.
