Why Use a Clay Mask / Masque on Your Skin?

Detox Clay Mask / Masque

Detox 3 Clay Mask / Masque

#1:  Clay Masques absorb a lot of surface oil. You might associate oily skin with younger skin, but that is not always the case. A little oil in the skin is a good thing because it keeps it smooth and soft, but too much oil leaves your skin shiny and greasy. Using a clay masque will help absorb the oil without leaving the skin dry and tight.

#2:  Clay Masques are effective for all skin types.  Clay masques treat all skin types safely. They work wonders with younger skin that may be prone to acne, and they boost elasticity and minimize signs of aging.

#3:  Clay Masques eliminate toxins and dirt in the skin. You would be surprised at how many environmental impurities your face can accumulate throughout the day. When you mix impurities and toxins with excess oil, you promote acne and other skin damage. Clay masques can rid the skin of toxins and impurities.

#4:  Clay Masques remove dead skin cells. Dead skin cells make the skin look ruddy and dull. The problem with aging is a slowing down in naturally sloughing off  dead cells on the skin’s surface. Clay masques do an excellent job of moving along dead skin cells to help your skin look fresh and bright.

Try using Celloxylin Pure Detox, Purifying Masque twice a week to achieve vibrant skin. Apply generously to cleansed skin (massaging in circular motions), avoiding eye areas. Relax and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Remove thoroughly with warm water. Can also be used as a spot treatment; dab and rinse once dry. Recommended for all skin types.

Blue, Green Clays Kill Skin Bacteria

Blue and green clays have long been known, together with other clays and “muds,” to have cleansing and healing properties. The minerals within the different clays act on skin cells to pull out impurities and break down bacteria. Mud baths have a reputation for being cleansing and restorative, and now have scientific evidence to back up testimonials and claims.
Looking specifically at blue and green clays, scientists at Arizona State University have deciphered the mechanisms by which these clays break down and destroy pathogenic bacterial cells in the skin.

“Lynda Williams, a clay-mineral scientist at ASU’s School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE)… (explains) “One metallic element — chemically reduced iron, which in small amounts is required by a bacterial cell for nutrition — tricks the cell into opening its wall. Then another element — aluminum — props the cell wall open, allowing a flood of iron to enter the cell. This overabundance of iron then poisons the cell, killing it as the reduced iron becomes oxidized.””

“After testing dozens of samples, Williams and her team identified a blue-colored clay from the Oregon Cascades that proved to be highly antibacterial. The research reported in the paper shows that it works against a broad spectrum of human pathogens, including antibiotic-resistant strains such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).”

This is an incredibly useful discovery, with a vast horizon of applications. When someone is diagnosed with CAMRSA (Community Acquired Methcillian-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) or MRSA, besides treatment with the potent antibiotic Vancomycin, and the possibility of a boil or abcess requiring incision/draining and packing with antimicrobial poultices, could we now apply a blue or green clay to the wound? Can these types of clay be ingested, and if so, how will the clay know where to find the brewing infection? Will regular mud baths prohibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria on the skin’s surface, useful as a preventative treatment, especially for someone who has had MRSA in the past? Is there a possibility of increased iron levels in the blood, or iron toxicity with regular use?

I have been using a blue and green 3-clay masque twice a week on my face for over a year now. It is useful to detoxify my skin, as well as remove dead skin cells. Every week or two, it will result in the development of a deep acne cyst. This particular clay masque acts to purify the skin by pulling pollutants from it. And pull pollutants, it does.

There are three types of clay in it — Kaolin, Bentonite and French Montmorillonite clays.  Each clay is high mineral content, exfoliates, stimulates blood circulation, and removes debris from pores.

They help to chelate (attach to) heavy metals, remove toxins from the skin, and aid the skin in guarding against future oxidative environmental exposure.

There’s also the added plant based ingredients of Chamomile, Green Tea, Ivy, Goji Berry, Caffeine and Cucumber, plus hydrating Hyaluronic Acid.

It’s a lovely 3- Clay Masque call Pure Detox Masque.
