CLAY MASKING A Time-Tested Beauty Ritual To Help Your Skin Look Its Best

What is Clay Masking?

Clay mask making is the process of creating facial masks out of clay. Clay masks have been used to cleanse, exfoliate, and nourish the skin for thousands of years.

They can be made using a variety of different kinds of clay, such as bentonite/montmorillonite, kaolin, and French green clay. Clay masks can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions, including acne, dryness, and wrinkles.

They also help to reduce inflammation and redness. Clay masks work by absorbing excess oil, dirt, and impurities from the skin.

The clay particles act like a magnet, drawing dirt and oil out of the pores. They also have an exfoliating effect, removing dead skin cells to leave the skin feeling soft and smooth.

What is the Active Restore Clay Face Mask?

The Active Restore Clay Face Mask is the ultimate all-in-one face mask! Formulated by Sérénité, it is made up of a unique blend of eight active ingredients that work together to cleanse, purify, and revitalise skin.

The active ingredients are two different clays from Sardinia and Brittany. The six other ingredients— rose petal powder, sandalwood powder, rosehip powder, aloe vera, vitamin C and pure green tea extract— come together in a sublime formulation that will soothe and purify your complexion.
