It’s no secret that clay has tons of benefits for your body. You can put clay on your body, face, and even your hair for the ultimate purifying treatment. There are tons of clay masks out there, but it’s hard to know which mask to pick.
A few of the most popular kinds of clay that you’ll find are bentonite, kaolin, and French green clay. Kaolin clay absorbs oil and helps exfoliate the skin, bentonite absorbs oil and bacteria, and there’s even research that shows it may help relieve dermatitis, and French green clay absorbs oil and gets its green color from decomposed plant matter. Clay can also help tighten pores.
