You certainly must have heard that clay masks make your skin prettier, right? But, do you know what kind of clay is the most indicated to your skin type?
The success of clay-based treatments isn’t recent. Clay can moisturize deeply the skin, and also improves its elasticity and firmness, promoting an increase in the number of collagen fibers in the area.
Besides that, it also slows aging! It is not for nothing that Egyptians used clay as one of the components of mummification, and Greeks used it to fight rheumatic pains.
So, if you want a natural way to make your skin beautiful and young, see the types of clay.
This way, you will be able to take care of your skin naturally and from home:
Now that you know the types of clay and which one is the best for your skin, see how to use it:
To make a facial mask with clay, first of all, clean the area where you will apply. Then, add 1 tablespoon of your clay to water or thermal water, and apply on the area to be treated. Let it act for 10 minutes. Remove with water and apply your facial moisturizer.
Now, if you want to do a body mask, just follow the same steps above, but increase the amount of clay and water according to the size of the area you wish to treat. Easy, right?
However, if you want to add clay to your hair care routine, do the following:
Add 2 spoons of clay in water or thermal water (enough to cover your hair). Apply on your scalp and let it act for 10 minutes. Remove with water and wash your hair as usual, with shampoo and conditioner.
Oh, when used on hair, it is better to apply it only to the roots, especially to get rid of oiliness. If you are going to do a body mask to treat cellulite and localized fat, it is recommended covering the area treated with a cloth after applying the clay.
Remember that, for the treatment to be effective, it is necessary to warm up the place. So it is recommended doing it in a sauna or using specific devices for that.
