5 clay masks to try To discover all the benefits of the different types of clay

There is a reason why clay has been a faithful ally of beauty for centuries. Rich in vitamins and minerals, it is in fact a land with exfoliating and antibacterial properties that manages to attack dead skin cells - by absorbing toxins and bacteria - and to take everything away with the rinse. Is there any other skin care product that clears pores and purifies the skin in just a few minutes?

However, clay masks are not all the same: there are in fact different types. The most common is green clay, ideal for the most oily (including acne-prone) and oily skin types as it has a greater rebalancing action and also has a higher absorption power; white clay, on the other hand, is less aggressive and is recommended for those with sensitive skin as it helps eliminate toxins and dead skin cells, preventing aging. Then there are red clay and blue clay known for their regenerating and detoxifying properties, and finally, pink clay with a calming and revitalizing action, therefore ideal in cases of delicate skin prone to couperose and redness.
