How Does Australian Green Clay Keep My Skin Healthy?

How Does Australian Green Clay Keep My Skin Healthy?

The use of Australian green clay is revolutionising the skincare industry. This natural ingredient has incredible benefits for individuals with oily, combination or acne-prone skin. 


Australian green clay is all about restoring and improving in order to leave skin fresh and glowing. However, it should be noted that the benefits that come from using Australian green clay are truly endless. 

 

What is Australian green clay?

The power of green clay comes from its make up. This organic material is comprised of a host of essential minerals, iron oxides and decomposed plant materials such as kelp and seaweed. These ingredients give Australian green clay incredible absorbent properties. 


Australian green clay can be used as a multi-purpose facial mask. This is because the mask’s properties can detoxify and exfoliate, draw out impurities and remove dead skin cells while also refreshing tired and washed out skin.


This natural ingredient can be used to fight breakouts and blemishes. This is because, when the power of green clay is harnessed properly, it works overtime to soak up excess oils that clog pores and lead to acne and imperfections. 


The composition of Australian green clay means that, when used, the skin gets taken to paradise. Green clay can be thought of as a type of first aid kit for the skin that will naturally nourish and cleanse the skin. 

 

Why are green clay masks good for my skin?

Featuring green clay, pepper berry and parsley seed, Minenssey’s Deep Cleansing Mask is like a 5-star resort for your skin. Harnessing the benefits of all three ingredients, this mask will fight breakouts and blemishes all over the body. 

 

Green clay 

A great thing about Australian green clay is its versatility. Those with oily, combination or acne-prone skin can use a green clay mask to extract excess oil, exfoliate dead skin and deeply cleanse your skin. 


No matter why you choose to use a green clay mask, the results are just as great. This is because, no matter the skin type, green clay will always work to restore balance to the skin. Therefore reducing any issues individuals may have with their skin. 


One of the great benefits of green clay is its ability to rid the face of excess oils. By extracting and soaking up these oils, an individual’s pores won’t build up with general congestion. Once pores become unclogged, instances of blemishes or acne decrease. 


Green clay also possesses mattifying properties, making this product ideal for anyone with an oily T zone. Yet the benefits don’t end there. The versatility of green clay means that it is also an effective deep cleanser.  A green clay mask will work to balance out the skin’s pH levels while also stimulating cell regeneration. Resulting in a fresh and glowing complexion. 


Green clay’s label as a first aid kit for the skin means that it truly has solutions to the problems most people face with their skin. From acne and stretch marks to blemishes and minor burns, green clay will be beneficial in the healing process. 


Pepper berry 

On its own, pepper berry is a highly beneficial ingredient when used in skincare. From protection against premature ageing to the strengthening of capillaries, pepper berry has many benefits for your skin. 


Pepper berry’s high antioxidant properties make it a great tool to combat against the signs of premature ageing. This is because antioxidants are actually an essential part of equipping skin with the right tools to ward off the elements that stimulate free radicals which then lead to premature ageing. 


Along with its anti-aging properties, pepper berry also stimulates collagen production. As skin ages, it can experience collagen breakdown. This breakdown will result in skin which appears less taut with lines and wrinkles. Pepper berries can fight against this as it contains Anthocyanin which provides natural protection against collagen breakdown.

 

Parsley seed 

Parsley has numerous benefits for the skin when used in a face mask. Parsley can reduce wrinkles and fine lines, erase under-eye dark circles and even offer clear and glowing skin by clearing clogged pores. 


As parsley contains vitamin C, it can reduce fine lines, wrinkles and scars. This is achieved by boosting collagen production through positive interaction with the amino acids found in the collagen cells. 


The presence of vitamin C, Chlorophyll and vitamin K in parsley also helps ease the appearance of under-eye dark circles. These three ingredients work together to lighten the skin under the eyes while also reducing puffiness.

Sigourney's edit   In the interests of full transparency, I’ll confess that I rarely bother with masks. Don’t get me wrong. I love the idea of them: a fast fix; a dermal do-over; a panacea for all your skin woes. But I treat them like a luxury; nice-to-do IF there’s time. And, naturally, there’s rarely time. I still write about them and love trying new formulations once or twice but beyond that they tend to fall later down my to-do list, somewhere between reorganising my shoe collection and de-pilling my cashmere jumpers.
