If your skin feels overly tight and dry after using a clay mask, chances are you’re using it too frequently, left it on for too long, or the mask formulation is not right for you. But don’t worry, we’re here to introduce you to some clay mask tips, helping you achieve that balance between getting rid of excessive sebum and keeping your skin barrier strong.
Kaolin clay is known to be a more gentle type of clay that also calms down redness and skin discomfort, which is suitable for sensitive skin. On the other hand, bentonite clay helps to keep blemishes at bay. When the two types of clay come together, they create an amazing synergy unclogging your pores and soothing skin irritations. In Sigi Skin’s Garden Party Deep Cleansing Clay Mask, not only are both types of clay present, but the formula is also jam packed with camu camu berry extracts and grapeseed extracts, which work to strengthen the skin barrier and maintain the skin’s pH levels. The best part is that the mask doesn’t strip the skin at all, thanks to astaxanthin, a potent antioxidant that reduces dryness.
With regular usage, around 1~2 times a week, you will start to see a difference in your pore size and breakout frequency. After application, the mask will begin to dry on your skin, followed by small dark spots that start to appear - this is the clay mask in action, pulling out the sebum from your pores! Within just 5~10 minutes, you can wash off the mask with lukewarm water to reveal silky soft skin that is ready to absorb all the skincare products you follow up with next!
