I used to think that there is no difference in color. This is a cosmetic clay. Naturally, each clay is good, but it acts in different ways.
White Clay Properties
White cosmetic clay dries the skin, absorbs excess sebum. Also, many speak of it as an excellent anti-inflammatory and healing tool. Natural cosmetic clay can be easily found in pharmacies, cosmetics stores and supermarkets. Personally, I bought at the pharmacy. And I was pleasantly surprised that clay can be of different colors.
White clay is suitable for oily and problematic skin type. I have problem areas on my face, the so-called Zone T: forehead, nose, chin. It is these problem areas prone to rashes, redness and excessive gloss. What I just did not try: I used scrubs, gels, facial wash, but the feeling of oily shine remained.
And I did the procedures for cleansing the face in the evening, before bedtime, and in the morning – Our song is good, start over. I noticed that brand scrubs at first somehow helped to cope with this problem, and then I was completely disappointed in them.
My friend has the same problems. Truth be told, before her acne and red spots on her face. It was in adolescence. Oh, and she was tortured then! That just did not try, probably all the remedies. They helped first, then they got used to getting used to them, they had to change one tool for another.
Well, naturally, everybody passes through adolescence. And, unfortunately, most people know firsthand what acne is. But a friend has this problem now. Although not pronounced, acne occurs. As I understand it, this is influenced by external factors: stress, excitement. She somehow accidentally stumbled upon an article about clay. And she decided to treat her skin.
The result is amazing! The skin has become soft and tender. Acne gone, shine too. All the inflammatory processes on her skin disappeared, and the oval of the face became clearer. So I was impressed. And as it turns out, cosmetic clay is a great way to care for yourself of all times and peoples!
This is the mask that my friend used. I decided to share her recipe with you too, dear readers of Alimero. The fact that it really helps is a fact that is undeniable. If you have skin diseases or inflammatory processes, feel free to use it.
For this mask need herbs. This is calendula, celandine and chamomile. You can buy them at the pharmacy, but you can collect them over the summer and yourself. You know, these herbs are considered antiseptics, they can not bring harm. In principle, they can wash their face after a mask and use it as a tonic during the day.
Herbs need to be brewed in equal shares. Cool, strain and mix with white clay to the consistency of sour cream. Apply on face evenly, hold for about 20 minutes.
About the benefits of vegetables, of course, everyone knows! They are useful to eat, these are vitamins. But also it is useful to apply them on the face as masks. 2 tbsp. l cosmetic white clay mixed with 2 tbsp. l cucumber (for this, it should be grated on a fine grater or whipped in a blender).
I found this mask recently on the net. The funny thing is that for its preparation is used clay and talc. What talc? Ordinary, perfumed? I tried to take the baby powder, so it became interesting to me. Mixed in equal proportions of talc and clay, diluted with warm homemade milk. The consistency should resemble sour cream: not very thick, but not liquid, so that the face mask does not blur.
What is the effect of it, you ask? As for me, it removes the greasy luster so annoying to me, dries the skin. Therefore, I do not recommend it for girls with dry skin. And I also liked the pleasant aroma. However, here is the role of talc. If you take a perforated, the aroma, naturally, will be.
Do you use white clay? What kind of masks do you prefer?
