What is Pink Clay?
Pink clay is a form of kaolin clay and is a combination of white clay and red clay, safe for all types of sensitive skin!
Red kaolin clay is great for very oily skin while white kaolin clay is the opposite and is mild on the skin. Therefore, pink clay is the perfect combination of both these clays. Pink clay helps to restore and replenish skin with moisture while also drawing out impurities. It is safe for sensitive skin but still delivers amazing results, almost instantly.
Pink Kaolin Clay is rich in silica, which will help to improve skin elasticity and cell renewal for glowy, younger-looking skin. Silica also works as a natural anti-inflammatory substance that assists with retaining moisture. As well as silica, Pink clay is also rich in minerals such as kaolinite and calcite. We source our Pink Clay from Australia.
Is redness after using my clay mask normal?
Yes, redness after a clay mask application is normal. Your face may go red because pink clay brings blood to the surface of your skin while it's pulling out impurities from your skin :)
Here are a couple of things that may help with your redness.
- Don't use hot water to rinse off your mask, use lukewarm water
-Try not to leave the mask on for more than 15 minutes. If it is completely dry and cracked then it has been too long. Ideally, it should be slightly tacky to touch - 10 minutes is all you need to see results.
- Use a soft damp face towel to remove the mask, if it is dry or too rough, you may damage your skin and cause more redness. Remember the skin on your face and neck is delicate!
- Avoid applying moisturizer straight away, always moisturize after your clay mask applications however please wait around 15 minutes to let your skin breathe.
