Regular internal cleansing goes a long way. While it is important to take good care of our internal organs, our skin which protects us from everyday pollutants needs some TLC too. Thanks to clay baths, your skin gets to experience some pampering too.
In the past years, clay baths are slowly penetrating into our health and beauty regimen. Not only because of its toxin-binding properties but also because of its ability to remineralize our body. Still not convinced? Here are a few reasons why you should start using bentonite clay as a detoxifying bath:
- Removes skin impurities- We have little control over the toxins we come in contact with every day. We cannot avoid them, but we can get rid of them by doing a regular clay detoxifying bath.
- Prevents acne- Overproduction of sebum leads to breakouts. Bentonite clay pulls out sebum from your pores and controls the production of your skin’s natural oil. Not only it leaves your skin oil-free but also prevents dirt buildup that may otherwise clog your pores.
- Improves skin- Bentonite clay is rich in calcium, magnesium, silica, sodium, copper, iron, and potassium. This naturally occurring trace minerals do not necessarily aid in the detoxification but it speeds up the healing process of various skin problems.
- Alleviates skin irritation- Clay bath provides a soothing feeling that alleviates skin irritation, redness, and swelling caused by insect bites and burns.
