Bentonite clay is an incredible ingredient for beauty masks. Healing clays contain a wide variety of minerals.
They aid in natural detoxification and draw out impurities from the skin. Highly colloidal alkaline bentonite clay, in particular, helps deep clean the skin pores, leaving your skin soft, clean and fresh.
Due to its absorbent quality, the clay absorbs excess oil and sebum from your skin. It also helps unclog and tighten large pores. Thus, bentonite clay beauty recipes are excellent for oily and acne-prone skin.
The bentonite clay and oatmeal mask includes tea tree oil to enhance its antibacterial effects to fight off acne-causing bacteria. Oatmeal is also good for the skin as it has soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. It contains saponins that help cleanse your skin and remove dead skin cells.
The bentonite clay and green tea mask is also great for treating acne. It includes green tea and aloe vera gel. Green tea contains tannins and has powerful antioxidants for maintaining glowing and younger-looking skin.
Aloe vera gel is another effective ingredient to soothe your skin and reduce inflammation. It is good for healing acne, fading blemishes and reducing skin discoloration.
