From the remnants of volcanoes, bentonite clay has long been a beauty staple in facial masks. It works by carrying a negative charge which draws positively-charged elements like bacteria, toxins, and fungus out of your skin.
Whether you realize it or not, your body is exposed to harmful pollutants each day. To clear them away, you might want to start using bentonite clay in your skincare routine.
In addition to drawing out those nasty impurities, bentonite clay contains some beneficial minerals like iron, magnesium, copper, and potassium which all make your skin glow with health. Here are seven benefits of using bentonite clay for your skin that will make you want to mask with it right now!
1. Gets rid of acne
The bacteria that causes acne lurks in your pores. With bentonite clay, it absorbs the excess oil on the surface of your skin and gets rid of that bacteria too!
2. Unclogs stuffed-up pores
Acne-causing bacteria isn’t the only thing causing your skin woes. Those daily pollutants that you encounter get lodged in there too. Bentonite clay draws all those nasties out of your pores.
3. Naturally exfoliates
Exfoliation is imperative for healthy skin cell turnover. Bentonite clay is a gentle way to exfoliate your skin plus it goes even deeper to get the gunk out from within.
4. Leaves skin super-soft
When you start using bentonite clay for your skin on the regular, you’ll notice it feels softer and smoother. That’s because it gets rid of those pesky dead skin cells and impurities, leaving only healthy skin behind.
5. Restores brightness and luminosity
If your skin looks dull and lackluster, treat yourself to a bentonite clay mask session. Your skin will look brighter even from the first time you try it.
6. Helps skin heal and repair
Whether you have scars from acne or an injury, bentonite clay is a wonderful natural healer. It helps your skin regenerate to look smoother, more even toned, and youthful too. Aging skin always needs more love and bentonite clay can help smooth things over by encouraging the skin to tighten up.
7. It’s the skincare powerhouse that does it all
No matter your skin type, bentonite clay can benefit you. It evens out skin tone with gentle exfoliation, allowing brighter, healthier skin to shine through. It also tightens and smoothes for a more youthful appearance. And it gets rids of whiteheads and blackheads.
From blemish-prone skin to aging skin and every skin type in between, bentonite clay is a multi-tasking miracle worker that will leave you looking better and better with every use!
