Discover the 5 benefits of using a clay-based face mask
Using a weekly clay based mask has become a key staple in the maintenance of healthy skin.
In this post, you will learn 5 key benefits of using a weekly clay based mask in your skincare routine.
I prefer the loose dry versions as they stay well preserved when not exposed to water. It also gives me the freedom to customize my facial experience depending on what my skin needs. I sometimes add avocado and always add raw honey for more nutritional and enzymatic benefits. It’s important to regularly detoxify from environmental pollution, excess oils and dirt and provide powerful nutrients and antioxidants in a complete skincare routine to see optimal results.
Did you know that clay mask can make your serums more effective?Many people will invest a lot in serums, moisturizers and anti-aging treatments, but it’s equally imperative that your skin is exfoliated and prepared prior to applying these treatments in order to allow the ingredients to actually penetrate for maximum efficacy. This is why when you get a professional facial, cleansing and exfoliation ALWAYS comes before the serums and creams are applied.
Whether you have acne, sensitivity, eczema, oily skin, dry/dull or even normal skin, you will certainly notice a BIG difference when you start to use a clay mask on a regular basis. Your skin immediately feels and looks smooth, redness is reduced, and over the long term the effects just get better and better! I hope you give it a try and begin this important step to healthy looking skin.
If you are oily or acne-prone, try our D’TOX NOIRE mask (a purifying detox clay mask) made with ingredients like glacial marine clay, moringa, burdock, charcoal, combined with actives like niacinamide, willow bark and MSM that are known for their purifying properties. Use to decongest and cleanse the skin from toxins, pollutants, make-up residue and bacteria that can cause breakouts. This purifying clay mask is particularly good at helping to revive tired-looking skin from the effects of pollution, daily stress and overindulging.
LA BOUE DE BEAUTÉ (brightening) face mask & scrub
LA BOUE DE BEAUTÉ is a gentle face mask and scrub that works to brighten, soften, exfoliate, and refine skin leaving it clear, smooth and looking more evenly toned. Our favorite way to use it is as a face scrub by activating the powder with water and gently massaging it on the skin (in circular motion). What’s more this mask allows a better penetration of your precious serums to follow which will be better absorbed and utilized. If you have acne prone skin, we suggest to use La D'tox Noire instead.
HOW TO USE THE PRODUCTS?
Activate a tablespoon of cleansing powder by adding an equal amount of water. Apply gently to your skin with a brush avoiding contact with the eyes. Leave on for about 10 minutes. To keep the ingredients active, do not allow the mask to dry. You can easily moisturize the mask by misting your face with water. To rinse, wet a soft cloth with lukewarm water and carefully wipe the mask from your face. Follow with L’ÉLIXIR DE CLARTÉ (brightening serum) and Les 16 PRÉCIEUX ™ (the Precious 16) oil serum to moisturize skin.
