Volcanic ash clay was, for many years, only found in exclusive health and beauty spas. It has many benefits for the face and body that make it a wonderful skincare mask. Here are just a few........
1. It has incredible absorption properties. It can absorb 7 to 10 times its own weight in water and swell up to 18 times its dry volume. These absorbing properties make a very effective skin care mask as it will soak up toxins and impurities out of the skin. This is especially effective on blemishes and acne problems.
2. Volcanic ash clay is all natural. There is evidence that traces it back to Mesopotamia 2500 B C. It's actually called "living clay" because of its rich, natural mineral content. Many ancient tribes, including the North American Indians, used this clay for many of their daily needs.
3. A good skincare mask should have anti-inflammatory properties. Volcanic ash clay has very unique anti-inflammatory properties which can contribute to dramatic skin improvement when used in a daily skincare routine.
4. With regular use, this skincare mask can help to visually improve the look of wrinkles, stretch marks, sun damage, blemishes, enlarged pores, age spots and more. It can also help tighten and firm the skin.
Did you know that even Cleopatra, the Egyptian queen, used volcanic ash clay as part of her daily beauty regime?
