3 Health and Beauty Benefits Of Natural Clay


3 Health & Beauty Benefits Of Natural Clay

How Do You Do Clay?

Clay is a naturally occurring substance found in all corners of the globe. It comes in many distinct varieties, most often associated with the region from which it occurs. 

Red clay and green clay are the most common, but you will find white, yellow, black, brown, pink and many shades of each.

Clay is very versatile, used for construction, pottery making, arts and crafts, healthcare, and beauty. Let's look closely at the health and beauty applications of clay.

Calm Your Upset Tummy

Bentonite clay is a famous clay for calming upset tummies, digestive issues, and morning sickness. It can also be part of a short-term colon cleanse, as it attaches itself to impurities, toxins, and heavy metals. 

With adequate hydration, clay removes these impurities from your body. Each clay dietary aid has specific usage instructions, so follow accordingly or in conjunction with your doctor's orders.

Removes Impurities from Your Skin

You have likely seen or used clay beauty masks or full-body treatments designed to remove the toxins from your skin. These leave you with exfoliated, soft and smooth skin. 

However, what you may not know is that clay is packed full of essential beauty-boosting essential nutrients that improve elasticity and deliver a healthy and youthful glow. 

While clay masks offer great results, they can be messy to apply. So we are proud to provide you with a natural alternative: a variety of clay-based French soaps.

Soothe and Treat Irritated Skin

Clay may remove impurities, but it is also soothing and gentle. Try bentonite clay as a natural toothpaste or mouth rinse or as an alternative to baby powder. 

Clay is also gentle enough to apply to skin with eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, poison ivy, or any skin-based allergic reaction. It will help soothe your skin and could remove the toxins that caused the outbreak in the first place. It will also help to regenerate skin, fade scarring and even out your skin tone.

These are just a small sampling of the robust health and beauty benefits of naturally-occurring clay.
