BENEFITS OF THE INGREDIENTS IN ACNE CLEARING CLAY FACE MASK
Acne is caused by bacteria trapped beneath the skin. But bentonite clay has proven bacteria-fighting abilities. Bentonite clay’s adsorbent power may be helpful in treating acne breakouts and oily skin.
The clay can help remove sebum, or oil, from the skin’s surface, and it also has a calming effect on inflamed breakouts. Bentonite clay has powerful drawing power. That’s because it has a negative electrical charge, while toxins, bacteria and impurities have a positive charge. As a result, clay attracts these positively-charged toxins, drawing them to the surface. Bentonite clay may be able to help fade these stubborn skin discolourations.
Tea tree essential oil
Tea tree oil is a popular choice for treating acne because of its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It’s thought to calm redness, swelling, and inflammation. It may even help to prevent and reduce acne scars, leaving you with smooth, clear skin.
Apple cider vinegar
The AHA present in ACV helps reducing acne. Apple cider vinegar may help in reducing the scars left behind once the acne is healed.
Aloe vera gel
Aloe vera has antibacterial agents in aloe vera remove bacteria from the skin, reducing the risk of spots developing. It reduces the size of acne and stimulates healing.
