French Pink Clay is a combination of red and white clays. It is considered to be the mildest of all the clays and works well for normal, sensitive and mature skin types. Its unique composition includes Kaolinite, Iron, Illite, Montmorillonite and Calcite. Appearance: Fine rose/pink colored powder.
Pink Clay is rich in Silica, which may help to improve skin elasticity and cell renewal, resulting in supple, younger-looking skin. Gently exfoliating and light on the skin, Pink Clay leaves skin feeling silky-soft and smooth. Plus, it can help to minimise blackheads and promote a radiant and balanced complexion.
Place 2 tbsp. French Pink clay into a bowl.
Pour 1/2 cup warm water into the bowl and mix the clay until it begins to form a paste. You may need to add a little more water if the mixture is too thick. You should be able to spread it easily onto your skin.
Moisten your face with warm water and pat dry with a towel.
Spread the clay onto your skin with your finger tips so its evenly distributed. Be careful not to get it into your eyes.
Let the clay sit for 10 to 15 minutes. As it dries, it will start to feel a little tight on your skin. You don’t have to let it dry completely; 15 minutes should do.
Rinse the clay completely off your face with warm water.
Bright, glowing skin
If pollution, partying and piled-on makeup has left your skin dull, dry or dehydrated, don’t stress. Packed with detoxifying and brightening ingredients, a good pink clay mask (like our OG Porefining Face Mask) can perk up even the most lacklustre complexion and give it back its radiant natural glow – fast.
A detoxified complexion
Cigarette smoke, smog, exhaust fumes… Unless we’re lucky enough to live on a pristine mountain top, most of us face a barrage of air pollution every day. And, unfortunately, this shows up on our faces in the form of breakouts, pigmentation, dullness and – in the longer run – sagging skin and wrinkles.
Refined pores & reduced oiliness
Drawing out dirt, impurities and excess oils from deep within the skin, pink clay helps to prevent blemish-causing blockages and give the appearance of itty-bitty pores. A must for any oily or combination complexion, a pink clay mask is instantly mattifying – mopping up surface oil and eliminating unwanted shine.
If you’re bothered by breakouts, pink clay is your new BFF. By deeply detoxifying the skin and balancing sebum, pink clays masks help to purify the pores and prevent future breakouts from occurring. With anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties, pink clay can also help soothe the skin and resolve existing blemishes sooner.
Smoother, less congested skin
Bumpy, congested, uneven skin probably isn’t high on your wish list. However, it can easily occur if you skip the exfoliation or are less than religious about removing those last traces of makeup.
