In order to keep my complexion clear and blemish free I swear by a good clay mask and I usually try to indulge my skin once a week to help combat those pesky blemishes and spots.
The Chamomile & Lavender Clay Mask from Laila London, which is one of this month’s brilliant Libbie Club offers, is a perfect choice for skin that is misbehaving. Because it contains only three naturally sourced ingredients – Sodium Bentonite Clay Powder, Organic Lavender and Organic Chamomile – it is also suitable even for sensitive skins.
The Laila London Chamomile & Lavender Clay Mask ) (RRP £16 Libbie Club price £14.40) features Sodium Bentonite Clay which is highly effective at detoxifying the skin and promoting overall natural beauty and health. Even the Aztecs recognised how effective this clay is at drawing out excess oils and toxins to the surface of your skin, boosting circulation to tighten the skin and stimulate blood flow, and removing dirt and dead skin cells that can clog pores. In addition Lavender has antibacterial properties, helping to fight spot causing bacteria, and Chamomile calms inflamed or sensitive skin.
The mask comes in a finely milled powder, which is a key feature of the mask because it means it retains its potency and freshness without the need for harmful chemicals preservatives. To use you simply mix 2 to 3 spoonfuls of the clay with water using the bamboo spoon provided, then once you achieve the desired consistency simply apply the mask to your face or body and leave for up to 20 minutes before rinsing clear.
The mask can be a bit messy and takes a little more time to use than a premixed clay mask, however the results are totally worth the extra effort because it leaves skin feeling soft, smooth and incredibly clean. My pores appear tighter and the skin looks bright and clear. It gives me that radiant, youthful glow I always desire.
