Oily, Acne Prone skin: For this skin type, Moroccan Red Clay and White Kaolin Clay are perfect for balancing the oil production and clearing out the pores. They clear up the skin in a gentle yet effective manner so that you won’t be excessively oily but not too dry. Due to their ability to absorb excess oil, they are also used in deodorants. These are great choices for sensitive skin.
Normal to Oily: If your skin is neither too dry nor excessively oily, but tends to get on the oilier side, bentonite is the perfect clay for you. It is formed from volcanic ash and works well for all skin types. So, if you are confused about which clay to pick, go for this one. It can absorb excess oil and help tighten the skin. This clay will also double up as a natural aid for stomach problems. Given its benefits, this is a good investment.
Sensitive: If your skin tends to get irritated from all products, opt for the French Green clay. Originating in Southern France, this clay is rich in kelp and algae, which explains its colour. It is very calming and soothing due to the presence of the marine herbs. It is very effective in removing toxins and healing the skin.  No matter what skin ailment you have, whether it is a sunburn, allergic reaction or a wound, this marine clay will help soothe your skin and calm the inflammation.
Pigmented skin: If uneven skin tone is your major concern, make fuller’s earth your best friend. Widely found in the Indian subcontinent, it has been used by women over the centuries. This clay works great to remove excess oil and help even out discolouration.
Ageing skin: Mature skin is mostly dehydrated and as a result, loses its firmness. The Rhassoul (or Ghassoul) Clay addresses exactly this concern. It works by swelling up when water is added, helping the skin retain moisture. This is the most hydrating of all clays and is rich in essential minerals like potassium, magnesium, calcium and sodium. This clay is perfect for giving mature skin the boost of hydration and radiance it needs.
We hope this guide helped you understand how clays help the skin. Pick the right one for your skin concern and get started on your journey towards beautiful skin!
