Lots of people are using clay masks nowadays. And it has got a lot of benefits obviously. But how can you apply a clay mask? And how do you remove a clay mask? We'll explain it to you! 

 

How many times should you use a clay mask? 

We have listed the clay masks by type of skins / issues on the skin, this way you can see how many times you should use a clay mask decided by the type of your skin. 

Severe acne

Please use the pink detox clay mask the first week every other day. If your skin responds a little to harsh on it, then change it to 1 day a mask, 2 days rest, 1 day the clay mask, 2 days rest. Do this for a full week. 

During this week you can feel and see that all impurities will rise up into the skin unfortunately. But no worries, this is the actual process of the detox. So this means it works. 

After this week you can apply the clay mask 1 - 2 times a week. Until your severe acne is almost gone. To keep your smooth & glowy skin you can apply the mask 1 - 2 times a week. Changing it between one week 1 treatment, and another week 2 treatments is fine. 

Eczema

When you have eczema your skin if very sensitive normally. Perform a patch test before you apply any type of clay mask. Use a clay mask once a week. If you feel like you have a uneven spot on your face, maybe treat that little spot 2 times a week. More often is probably not necessary. 

Oily skin

If you have a oily skin you would probably want to detox the hell out of it. Because the detox get's your hydration and oil level in balance again. Use the detox clay mask the first week for around 3 - 4 times. This way your skin can get used to a normal balanced oil level. 

After that week you can easily keep applying the mask for about 2 times a week. Your skin probably needs it, and it's also nice to make some time for yourself and get a rest. 

Dry skin

If you have a dry skin you need to be hydrating a little more. So next to giving your skin balance in hydration by applying a clay mask, you'll also want to drink a little bit more water. After a detox clay mask you have to drink more water to get rid of the impurities. 

Apply a clay mask when you have dry skin only the first week 2 times. Give your skin a break for 2 days. 

After this week you can see if you need it once a week or twice. It's up to different aspects:

  1. What type of environment are you in? Sunny, dry, cold, humid etc
  2. What type of other skincare do you use?
  3. What type of season are you in? 
  4. Are you in your period?

So keep in mind that every week could be different, and your skin needs a different type of treatment. So just play with it a bit, and see what type of change your skin is in at the moment and respond to that with the clay mask. 

Normal skin

First of all: you are lucky with your normal skin. Genetically you probably got a normal skin. You don't need much for your skin usually, since it's good with or without products. But to keep a glowy and smooth skin you can apply the clay mask once or twice a week the first week and continuously keeping up with this.

The pink clay masks benefits: 

  • Support and help remove pimples and acne

How to remove a clay mask 

To remove your clay mask use a clean facecloth or small towel. You can use lukewarm to warm water to rinse it off. Try not to really scratch it off but gently remove the mask. 

After you've taken the clay mask off, you need to let your skin rest for about 5 minutes. Your skin can look a bit red, and feels maybe a bit warm or tingly. This is because the detox in the mask is doing it's work. 

That's why you don't want to over compensate your skin by applying all these moisturizing products straight away. Go for a break and moisturize after 5 minutes with a calm and soft type of serum to hydrate the skin. 

For instance you can use the Gold Serum Elixir. It contains Vanilla to calm and soothe the skin right after any treatment. Perfect for after a clay mask.
