PINK CLAY MASKS
Clay masks have been a skincare staple for a while but there’s one colour that’s on everyone’s faces at the moment.
Today we’re taking a look at pink clay masks and why this is one colour of clay you want all over your face too.
WHY PINK CLAY?
Clay comes in so many different colours – brown, pink, green and everything in between. But even with so many types of clay masks available in Australia, pink clay has risen above the rest to be the cult hit.
A SOLUTION FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
With clay masks, you’re generally going to see Kaolin as the key ingredient. A fine and light clay, kaolin has natural absorbency properties, that soak up excess oils and stale sebum.
Within kaolin however, there are differences based on the colour of the clay. While green clay is the most absorbent, it can have the effect of removing not just oil and sebum, but moisture as well.
Pink clay is gentler, having the same efficacy as green clay while maintaining your skin’s natural hydration. Pink clay is also full of minerals that absorb oil and impurities. It’s great acne-prone, dull and congested skin.
OUR PICK OF THE BUNCH
Our pick of pink clay masks is the Cosmetea Black Tea Pink Clay Mask.
With skin resurfacing benefits that boost firmness and elasticity, this pink mask looks almost good enough to eat as well! The effects of this mask are magnified with adding black tea and bentonite to unclog pores and refresh dull skin.
