It’s a double whammy today. It’s the turn of letter K in our regular A-Z of skincare feature but I also have a tried and tested and truly amazing product for under a tenner too!
So today we’re talking Kaolin. A soft clay, also known as China Clay, that’s super rich in detoxifying minerals.
It’s got many varied uses but when combined in skincare and mixed with essential oils, it creates a lovely super absorbent paste that’s perfect for tackling oiliness and shine. Applied directly to the skin as a leave on mask it’s going to reduce excess moisture and help reduce pore size. Just perfect for acne or blemish prone skin, as well for reducing localized redness, inflammation and targeting existing breakouts. Consider using this weekly as part of detoxifying mask treatment to keep your natural oil levels nicely balanced out.
I tried out the Vichy Pore Purifying Clay Mask at the weekend and it really helped tighten up my enlarged pores and gave me a great fresh base for my make-up. Currently on offer from French Pharmacy site, Escentual for just £9.33 for a 75ml jar. Fab price for a highly effective mask.
So go and get your detox on and say hey to some clay!
