The skin on your body, face and lips, and under your eyes, all have different requirements. So how can we expect one clay mask to work all over your face? Just like we spot conceal trouble areas with concealer for a flawless look, we can spot treat skin issues with clay masks. If you’re unsure about this technique, let us tell you what you should use on certain parts of your face for maximum skincare benefits.
For blackheads and sebum
For blackheads and excess oil, try a detoxifying mask. Look for a clay mask with activated charcoal to draw out dirt and impurities from deep within. Try the Pond’s Pure Detox Mineral Clay Activated Charcoal Oil Free Glow Face Mask for the same. This thick and heavy-duty mask with activated charcoal and manicouagan clay is perfect to combat unnecessary shine and get rid of blackheads. Slather it on your nose, chin and forehead for spot masking or spot treatment. Let it sit for about 15 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.
If you notice some spots of your face look dull, try using a brightening mask on those areas. Vitamin C is one of the best ingredients for this task. And with the ingredient recommendation, we’ve also picked a mask recommendation. We’re obsessed with the Lakmé 9to5 Vitamin C+ Clay Mask and here’s why – this formula contains fabulous elements from nature. Kaolin clay, bentonite clay, glycerin and vitamin C are some of the ingredients found in this clay mask. Use it on the high points of your face or body to remove tan, dullness and hyperpigmentation.
You need not use a mask all over your face just for a few pesky pimples. Most acne clearing products contain drying agents with anti-bacterial properties. Hence, applying the mask only to your pimple can be more beneficial. Check out the Lakmé 9 To 5 Moist Matte Clay Face Mask for this job. This non-drying clay mask contains green tea extract and we cannot put it down. Green tea is chockfull of anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties which can be a saviour for acne-prone skin. Use a pea-sized amount right on your pimple and wash it off after it dries. The best part about this hack? You can use it daily as a pimple treatment and it will work way faster than any ointment.
