Cosmetic body clay is one of the most popular components of beauty care products. It is added to masks and wraps, soaps and shampoos. A whole series of products with this ingredient are available, and in soap shops, you can purchase it in its pure form to make your soap, masks for the skin and hair.
Types, composition, and action of body clay
This natural product has many types: black, white, blue, green. They differ in chemical composition and properties. It is the mineral impurities that colour the fine dry powder in one shade or another. At the same time, the benefits and specificity of the use of the product largely depend not only on the composition, but also on the place where it was mined. Some formulas are known for whitening properties, others for anti-ageing, cleansing, moisturizing.
All types of body clay contain silicon oxide, which stimulates collagen production and has a beneficial effect on blood vessels. Therefore, it can be used in cosmetics for wrinkles and cellulite. Particles of aluminium that are in the composition help get rid of acne. And manganese, magnesium, cuprum, and zinc have disinfecting properties and stimulate the production of keratin. A coloured body clay can also contain iron, nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus, and other mineral ingredients. They can affect the colour of the composition, giving it a cyan, blue, emerald, red, and black shade.
For anti-cellulite wraps and hair care, the blue powder is suitable.
To strengthen the oval of the face, moisturize and lift it, choose a green or pink product.
For whitening, narrowing pores, levelling the tone of the face, choose kaolin or green one.
For the care of thin, sensitive skin, consider buying a red or pink product.
To narrow pores, eliminate rashes, care for oily and problem epidermis, choose the black powder.
For improving complexion, caring for normal skin and getting rid of dandruff, the best remedy is yellow body clay.
You can easily check the quality of the product at home. Add a pinch of it to a glass of warm water and stir. The good-quality powder will settle slowly, forming large flakes. A low-quality one will quickly form a dense layer at the bottom of the glass.
How to use it at home
It is easy to make a face mask: dilute the powder with warm water, decoction of medicinal herbs, or hydrolat. Do not use metal utensils as the metal reacts chemically with the mask components. Dilute it to the consistency of sour cream.
Apply the body clay to a cleansed face for 15-20 minutes. Do not allow it to dry completely. Do not apply to the skin around the eyes and on the lips, as it has a drying effect and is not suitable for the thin, sensitive skin of these areas. Then, rinse with warm water and use a moisturizer: cream, gel, or serum.
