Have you heard of bentonite clay? If you haven’t, read on, because it is becoming all the rage in the skin care world! Bentonite clay is a natural forming clay made up of negative ions. Why is that important? Because toxins and heavy metals in the body are made of positive ions, which means bentonite clay works as a magnet to remove those toxins from the body. Bentonite clay is safe and effective for all skin types. It helps even out skin tone, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and more!
Need more convincing? Here are five reasons you should be using bentonite clay:
1. Unclogs and shrinks pores
All pores become clogged over time. Smaller pores help keep your face clean and keep blemishes at bay, as they are less likely to clog. Apply as a mask on your face and repeat twice a week to see results.
2. Draws out toxins from the skin
As mentioned above, bentonite clay acts like a magnet to the toxins in your skin. When the clay comes into contact with your skin, it will pull out the impurities, leaving its own healing minerals behind for the body to use. The clay even pulls hydrogen from the cells, helping with circulations and overall skin tone/health.
3. Controls oil production
Oily skin is the curse of many. When there is too much oil on the skin, bacteria can form, which leads to acne, blackheads, and whiteheads popping up all too frequently. Bentonite can not only help control oil production, but it can also be treated as a spot repair product for blemishes. 4.
