It is everyone’s wish to have flawless and healthy looking face, but only few know how to actually go about doing it. The most common thing that people do to achieve this is washing their face with water and soap every day. Some people even wash their face several times per day. While this is definitely one way to improve your skin and make it healthier, there is much more to it than just washing with soap. You need to deep clean your face at least once or twice a week to ensure any dirt that is left behind after washing is removed, and this ensures you have glowing skin at all times. Well, what exactly is ‘deep cleaning’, and how do you do it? Read on to know how.
Deep cleaning is nothing but going deep down into the pores of your face, and removing dirt particles from these pores. This is as deep as cleaning can get, so once you have done this, your face will be radiant and glowing, since it will be 100 percent clean after doing this. Some popular ways of deep cleaning are applying face masks, like clay masks, creams, and the like, which stay on your face for a considerable period of time, and dig out the dirt from your skin’s pores. However, it is always better to use natural face masks compared to synthetic and artificial ones, and one such type is the clay face mask.
A clay face mask not only removes impurities from the pores, but also tightens them, so your skin appears younger than it is, thus building your confidence levels as well. It is very easy to use a clay face mask, so you don’t have to go to a beauty parlor or a salon to get it done. You can do it yourself, at home, and the whole process does not take more than 30-45 minutes, typically. Twice a week is more than enough to ensure your skin looks at its best. However, because of the demand in the market for clay face masks, there are so many manufacturers that you will be literally spoilt for choice. It is essential to choose the right clay face mask for your skin, to achieve maximum results.
People have different skin types, like dry and oily. There are clay masks available for both types, and more. Be sure to choose the correct skin type. Don’t be fooled by the entire fancy lingo most companies put on their clay face mask packaging. Some terms you may encounter are ‘deep sea mud mask’, ‘kaolin clay’, ‘montmorillonite clay’ and ‘Moroccan clay’. Well, each of these has its own significance. What a deep sea mud mask means is that it contains a lot of exfoliating minerals and vitamins that will almost guaranteed make your skin glow in no time. Choose this if you have particularly dull skin. Kaolin clay masks should be chosen by people who have sensitive skin, as this clay is very gently on your skin. Montmorillonite clay works for people with oily skins and for those who are suffering from acne. Another clay type for the oily skins is the Moroccan clay, which drains the skin of all oil, and presents it in its most natural form.
