Neglect to take care of your facial skin and what do you get? Acne. Yes, that horrid skin condition, mainly seen in youngsters, that produces numerous pimples, particularly on the face.
What causes acne?
Acne is caused by the blockage of skin pores due to accumulation of oil, dead skin and bacteria. Each pore contains a hair follicle that is connected to a sweat gland and the oil-producing sebaceous gland. When sweat and oil are released, they travel up the follicle through the pore and onto the skin, and accumulate there.
If the skin is not cleaned regularly, skin problems start that may take the shape of acne, pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and even fungal and bacterial infections. However, merely washing the face with soap and water may not suffice. Thorough cleaning by means of a face mask is what is required.
And any face mask would not do; for a thorough job a clay mask is a must. One of the most effective clay masks that is specifically meant for deep cleansing the skin pores is the pore purifying clay mask.
Pore purifying clay mask
What makes a pore purifying clay mask so special? Well, it is the special clay mixed with specific ingredients that goes into its making. Let us see the various types of clays used in pore purifying clay masks:
