The summer season can be particularly annoying for those with oily skin. The hot and humid weather makes oily skin oilier and invites skin problems like blackheads and breakouts. To combat this, it is necessary to follow a good skincare routine that includes regular exfoliation and masking sessions. Clay works particularly great for those with oily skin as it absorbs all the excess oil. Using a clay-based cleanser can be quite beneficial in summer.
Scroll down to learn about all the benefits of using a clay-based face wash for your oily skin in summer.

- Detoxifies and brightens skin
- Suitable for all skin types
Draws out deep-set impurities
Clay has powerful absorbing properties; it clings onto your skin easily and draws out deep-set impurities and extra sebum from the pores. Ordinary cleansers only work on the skin’s surface, which is why your skin feels oily soon after you wash your face. But when the skin is cleansed thoroughly, you will experience fewer problems like clogged pores and breakouts.
Gentle for daily use
We know what you are thinking: What if using a clay-based cleanser daily makes my skin dry? The answer is NO; it won’t. Scrubs and chemical peels also cleanse your skin deeply; however, they contain harsh ingredients and cannot be used daily. Clay cleansers, on the other hand, are gentle for daily use and offer similar results such as removal of dead skin, impurities and excess sebum from the skin.
The right cleanser will moisturise your skin
Contrary to popular belief, clay not only removes excess oil from your skin, but the right type can even moisturise your skin. Clay cleansers like the Ponds White Beauty Mineral Clay Instant Brightness Facial Foam are rich in minerals and will retain moisture into the skin and prevent it from feeling dry or taut after cleansing. It is formulated with Moroccan clay that sucks dirt and other impurities out from the pores to give you clear and shine-free skin all day long.
Detoxifies and brightens skin
If your complexion looks dull, it’s time to brighten it up by replacing your current facial cleanser with a clay-based one. Pollution, dirt and other impurities settle deep into the pores of your skin and make it look dull. But using a clay cleanser like the Ponds Pure White Mineral Clay Anti Pollution Purity Facial Foam twice a day daily can reverse the effects of pollution on your skin and make your complexion bright and fresh
Suitable for all skin types
Clay cleansers and masks are often recommended to those with oily and acne-prone skin, as these skin types benefit from it the most. However, since clay cleansers are gentle, they can be used by any skin type. If you want a healthy glow and skin that looks bright from within, you can use a clay cleanser irrespective of your skin type.
