3 CLAY FACE MASKS FOR EVERY BUDGET

By Lucy Glen, 23 April 2018

If you love to experiment with your skincare routine, then say hey to clay. Clay isn't exactly a new discovery – it's literally been in existence since dinosaurs roamed the earth. But it does have all kinds of benefits for your skin. It soaks up all trace of dirt and grease (great for oily skin, but kind to dry skin too); you can target areas of breakouts (it's excellent at drawing out impurities) and it gives your clogged pores a good clean. Here are three of our top picks..

If you're not overly excited about throwing around a heap of your cash, then these Yes To single application masks are a strong low-budget option. Just add water, yogurt or honey to turn the powder into clay and apply. Then sit back and feel slightly smug knowing you're going to look radiant for only 10 bucks.

This Works Evening Detox Clay Mask is a win for a number of reasons. Firstly, it's an anti-pollution formula (keeping you protected from all the nasties in the air); secondly, it contains Kaolin clay, which will absorb excess oil (and decongest your skin), and finally – just take a look at the in-built brush. Oh, and it's also bright green, so if you're into the Shrek look...

Unless you've been hiding under a (clay) rock, you'll have seen Sand & Sky via the socials on the reg. The video of a dreamy millennial pink substance being applied with satisfying precision is somewhat mesmerising. While it's on the pricey side, the soft, luminous skin you'll end up with is more than worth it.
