What is Australian pink clay?

Australian pink clay is taking the internet by storm. Influencers and beauty bloggers have been showing off their pink faces as they try out pink clay face masks. It’s little wonder why pink clay has taken over the beauty industry. Not only does it look good when applied, but it also performs wonders for sensitive skin types. 


Generally regarded as the most gentle clay there is, pink clay is safe for all types of sensitive skin. This gentle clay contains silica, magnesium, selenium and zinc. Combining these ingredients makes pink clay great for skincare, in particular, the care of sensitive, dry or eczema-prone skin. 


Pink clay is a very mild combination of red and white clays. The combination helps to restore and replenish skin with moisture while also drawing out impurities. As pink clay is a mineral-rich composition, this skincare product helps to regenerate the skin for greater collagen production. 


Along with things like silica and magnesium, pink clay is rich in minerals such as kaolinite and calcite. Resulting in a composition that works wonders when it comes to detoxifying the skin and preventing breakouts. 


The traces of silica in pink clay work as a natural anti-inflammatory substance that also assists with retaining in moisture. The magnesium helps the skin retain its natural fatty acids while the selenium acts as an antioxidant that fights premature signs of ageing. Finally, the inclusion of zinc aids your skin’s healing process. Australian pink clay is a one-stop-shop for a brighter, clearer complexion that inspires a fresh and healthy glow. 

 

Why is Australian pink clay masks good for my skin?

Australian pink clay is so great for sensitive skin because of its versatility and gentle composition. Other types of clay such as the yellow and white variety have very specific uses and benefits, while pink clay is able to perform many skincare functions. 


Fighting signs of stress

Pink clay is excellent for nourishing signs of stress while also soothing points of irritation. In addition, pink clay helps to regenerate the skin for greater collagen production, while also soothing signs of redness from skin irritations. 


Balancing your natural oil production

Pink clay can improve the appearance of skin, but it also helps issues that start under the surface. As pink clay is great for exfoliating, a pink clay mask could rid toxins from the skin and in turn help towards rebalancing the skin’s oil production. Pink clay’s ability to absorb oil is a real game changer for those who suffer from an oily T zone. 


Natural exfoliating properties

While being gentle on sensitive skin, pink clay also has exfoliating properties. Its slightly grainy texture will act as an exfoliant, drawing out impurities and removing dead skin. However, pink clay will not remove the skin’s natural oils. Which will instead offer a helping hand to those with tight, dry or dehydrated skin. 


At the end of the day, this combination of properties will provide a boost of natural minerals to the skin which will work to replenish the skin with much needed nourishment. This is because pink clay, while deeply cleansing pores, will not strip the skin of its own protective barriers. 

 

What’s the difference between pink clay and yellow clay?

A relatively mild clay, yellow clay draws toxins out from the skin, resulting in refreshed skin. Yellow clay can also balance the skin’s oil secretion to make for a softer, more toned complexion.


Where yellow clay refreshes the skin, pink clay actually works to refresh and regenerate to ensure greater collagen production, while also soothing any present irritation or redness. 

 

What’s the difference between pink clay and white clay?

Leaving the face visibly clearer, white clay works to reduce the visibility of pores while also evening out skin tone. White clay is also a great exfoliant as it gently removes dead and dry skin in order to draw out the likes of dirt and oil. 


A major difference between white clay and pink clay is the appearance of skin after use. White clay will leave the skin visibly clearer, reducing the visibility of pores and evening out skin tone. In contrast, pink clay will leave the skin feeling and looking clearer, yet it will also reduce the appearance of any fines lines or pigmentation.
