It took a little trial and error for me to find a clay mask that was gentle enough for my skin. Clays like rhassoul and bentonite are known for their powerful ability to draw impurities and excess oil from your pores. They work like a charm on oily skin, but what if you have dry skin and there isn’t a ton of excess oil? Then, some clays can be a little too strong and leave your skin feeling rather tight and dry. Enter: Rose Clay.
Rose clay is one of the gentlest clays. It’s suitable for dry, sensitive and mature skin. But don’t be fooled by it’s mildness. Rose clay is a powerhouse when it comes to skin benefits: it purifies, cleanses and exfoliates, but it can also help with hyper-pigmentation and irritated skin.
I combined rose clay with nourishing coconut milk powder in this face mask, because I love how soft and moisturized it makes my skin feel. Coconut milk is a great skin food: it contains many beneficial vitamins and minerals as well as unsaturated fatty acids. It has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties and it can brighten your complexion and tighten your pores.
When I tried this mask for the first time I couldn’t stop touching my face afterwards. I couldn’t believe how soft it felt. So, just be warned 😉
