How to Choose the Best Clay Mask for Your Skin Type

We swear by natural clay masks at Y.Wait! Those new to skincare may think that putting clay on your face to clean it is strange, but similarly to mud baths, they are actually a highly effective skin treatment. Clay deeply cleanses pores by extracting dirt and impurities without rubbing or tugging the skin.

Most clay masks are really good for oily skin, but not every natural clay has the same strength, so there are options for all skin types. Finding out which clay mask is suitable your skin type will help you get the most out of your skincare routine. Keep reading to find out which ones are right for you!

Green Clay

Y.Wait Green Clay Face Mask is high in minerals, which makes it super effective at absorbing excess oil and purifying the skin. This means it is ideal for oily or breakout-prone skin that would benefit from a weekly detox!

Red Clay

The hue of our Red Clay Mask is due to its iron oxide content, which means it's good for balancing, toning and purifying the skin. It works to absorb excess sebum, reduce irritation and redness, brighten the complexion and purify the pores. It’s a great choice for almost any skin type and it works like a charm to perk-up the skin!

Kaolin Clay

Kaolin Clay Masks are the most gentle of the clay masks! This is because Kaolin Clay is less oil-absorbent than other types, meaning it is perfect for sensitive or dry skin. It is also antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, so it’ll help heal your skin while it purifies it. This also makes it a good choice for acne-prone skin as it will reduce blemishes and help to balance the skin's natural oils.

Rhassoul Clay

The minerals in Y.Wait Rhassoul Clay Mask are good at drawing out impurities from your pores, softening the skin and making it glow. Opt for this mask if you have normal or combination skin, to even out the complexion and purify pores.
