As one of the best all-natural ingredients, bentonite clay is a popular product that is used as is or in conjunction with other ingredients. The interesting part is that this coveted ingredient isn’t something newly discovered.
Bentonite clay has been used in skincare throughout history. It has a variety of benefits, which is why we use it in many of our products at Primal Life Organics. Let’s break it down.
Clogged pores can easily become blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and more. With bentonite clay, you can deep-clean your pores with ease. The clay is naturally absorbent. You can mix it with water to make a mask. The mask will easily suck out all the dirt, dried skin and other gunk that collects in your pores.
Regulates Production of Sebum
Oily skin is problematic as it can increase the chances of developing pimples, cause acne flare-ups and make your face appear greasy at all times. Luckily, bentonite clay works wonders in regulating production of sebum by absorbing the excess oil. It also helps to shrink pores, which reduces how much sebum is excreted on the skin.
Draws out Toxins
Toxins such as germs and pollution can easily collect in your porous skin. Moreover, as the largest organ in the body, your skin does require some help in ensuring that it stays free of the toxins that accumulate on it. Bentonite clay can effectively draw out the pollutions and chemicals to ensure that your skin can detox with ease.
Improves Skin Texture
Want softer skin? Turn to bentonite clay. The clay is great at shrinking pores which improves the overall texture of your skin. Bentonite clay also contains various minerals such as magnesium, calcium and sodium that get easily absorbed into your skin and nourish it. Moreover, a clay mask can help tighten aging skin to give it a more youthful appearance.
Soothes Sensitive Skin
Rashes, allergic reactions, bug bites, redness and itchy spots on your skin won’t react well with your usual skincare. Luckily, bentonite clay can help soothe sensitive skin. Inflammation in skin caused by conditions such as psoriasis and eczema can also be improved with daily use of bentonite clay.
Induces Production of Healthy Skin Cells
For healthier skin, bentonite clay can not only exfoliate the dead skin cells, but it can also aid in the production of healthy skin cells. The overall result is that your skin will be smoother, appear younger and you will have that lustrous glowing skin that you always wanted.
Diminishes Appearance of Dark Spots
Dark spots caused by sun exposure or acne can mar the beauty of your skin. While there are plenty of products in the marketplace to address these, simple bentonite clay can give you the best results. It removes the dead skin cells and encourages growth of healthy skin cells in that area, giving your skin a more even tone.
