    Frequently Asked Question About Clay Mud Face Mask 

    How long should you leave a clay face mask on?

    Clay face masks should ideally be left on for no more than 15 minutes; however, you should read the instructions as each can vary. You are at risk of your skin drying out if you leave your clay mask on for too long. Bentonite clay is the most common type of clay found in skincare products, and it is able to absorb more than its mass in water. Clay masks are, therefore, more effective if you don't let them dry out completely.

    How often should you use a clay face mask?

    How often you can use a clay mask depends on your skin type and the type of clay mask you are using. If you have dry, normal or combination skin, you should ideally use a clay mask twice a week. If your skin is extremely oily, you may be able to use it daily; however, you will likely find that this is not necessary.

    Using a clay mask will often irritate and worsen dry skin, particularly if you have sensitive skin. Masks containing any exfoliating ingredients like benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid should be used a little less often, about once a week.

    Some clay masks are overnight masks and can typically be used two to three times a week.

    Recommended clay masks for different skin concerns

    Clay masks are most commonly found in a paste formula rather than a sheet mask. Although they share similarities, clay face masks often contain other ingredients that have specific purposes. 

    Are clay face masks good for acne?

    Clay masks have the potential to absorb oil from your skin and prevent mild forms of acne, such as pimples, blackheads and whiteheads. These types of acne form when your pores become clogged with excessive dirt and oil.

    Do clay masks remove blackheads?

    Some clay masks contain sulphur, an ingredient that works to break down the dead skin cells that make up blackheads. They can, therefore, be effective for blackhead removal.

    Is a mud mask the same as a clay mask?

    Mud is a skin-healing agent, whereas clay is a drying skin agent ideal for oily skin.

    Do you use toner before or after a clay mask?

    You can use a toner before using a clay mask after cleansing.

    Do clay masks help with wrinkles?

    Using clay masks frequently can reduce wrinkles and fine lines, as they promote the number of collagen fibres by enhancing collagen synthesis.

    Why do clay masks make your face red?

    Some redness after a clay mask application is normal, as clay brings blood to the surface of your skin. This occurs while the mask is absorbing the impurities from your skin. However, if you notice any irritation or reaction while using the mask, remove the product immediately.

    Can you sleep in a clay face mask?

    You can sleep in a clay mask if it is designed as an overnight mask. However, we don't recommend sleeping in other types of clay masks as this is likely to dry out the skin and cause irritation.

    Do clay face masks expire?

    Clay masks tend to dry out over time, so you should keep an eye on the product's expiry date. It would help if you kept your clay mask in a cool place to prevent it from drying out and expiring quickly.

    Should I wash my face before a clay mask?

    You should at least use a cleanser, using a toner if you wish.
