French clay, also known as sea clay, has long been appreciated for its detoxifying skin care benefits. It's also my F in my A-Z of skincare.
It contains a plethora of valuable ingredients and important minerals such as dolomite, magnesium, copper, zone and calcium. It’s highly absorbent and particularly useful for oily, clogged or acne prone skin as it draws out impurities.
Think of French Clay like a magnet – attaching itself to the impurities in your skin and naturally drawing them out, encouraging healthier, clearer and more purified skin.
It has high doses of anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, is naturally absorptive and promotes rapid cell regeneration, encouraging the skin cells to heal themselves. As such, it’s an effective ingredient in the war against ageing, helping to slow down the process by improving the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It makes a fantastic addition to a face mask.
Hyped as a revolutionary mess free mud mask that combines the deep cleansing power of mud with the convenience of a sheet mask, it’s infused with a powerful trio of clays and is highly effective at blitzing blemishes, blackheads and blocked pores but without drying out your skin. Use for 20 mins and voila, clearer, brighter and more radiant looking skin. Great if like me, you still suffer from pesky break outs in your 40’s!
